Moody, low key verses bookending some room wrecking rocknroll. I ripped the intro from some song, but I can't remember what it was. About a dude that can't let go and it ruins him. I've been there but got past it. I don't know about the la-la-la's but they seemed to kind of counter balance the guys darkly depressed mental state. Drum loops and guitars, bass and vocals.

Someone once told me that their definition of love was... "the only socially accepted form of insanity there is". Ah the things we do for love... smiley

The la la's are working for me, as you say they are a great counterpoint; kind of like a 'ho hum/whatever' balancing the more 'depressed/rejected/stalker' mood of the lyrics. Great work.

Thanks for sharing with us; masterful original composition, vision, performance & production.

Nice clean production and cool tune!!
Love the contrast between the subdued, tuneful, harmony sections and the full on thrashy bits ........
Also, the slightly mysterious retro feel works great!!

A lot of people have been to a lot of "theres" and got stuck. Cool tune, and I like how you clear-out the carburetor in the "thrashy bits" as RichardJohn said. Great stuff.

nice song! rocks! love your red guitars. do you specialise in red only or have you only loaded photos of your red guitar wall, leaving the blue, black, green and psychedelic walls for later posts?

Put this in the middle of an old Pink Floyd album (60's) and one may never realize it doesn't really belong there smiley

Rocking man! Drifty at times, just flowing with the groove, and then it smacks you in the face hahaha. I like the la-la-las. It puts the listener into a relaxed state and then you punch em with the "cracked my mind", and you just want to rage out. Great stuff sir, enjoyed!

A lovely gentle feel to this, Jim - highly melodic and I really like the way you've done the harmonies, slightly ghostly. There's a nice retro feel to this, with a modern twist. Great guitarwork, too. Oh, and now here comes the surprising second half! I wasn't expecting that!

Yeah Jim you got me! It's 3a.m. and I'm listening on headphones, so I cranked them up to hear the opening verses in detail. Nice restrained guitars and drums and sober bass with subdued gentle vocals...then WHAM!
That'll teach me to be so trusting...lol

Love it Jim, big smiles all 'round, even better on subsequent listenings...

I like this! The harmonies are very nice! The piece has a bit of the Everly's feel to it with some Beatlemania, and some British explosion influence to it! Great meld of influences!

Back for another listen... This gets better & better the more times you listen. The pace, build & release perfectly fits the subject matter of the lyrics. Real calm, matter of fact & 'la la' until finally the dude has finally had it and just bursts out rocking the house down. Explosive jam. Excellent work.

Thanks for sharing with us. Masterful original composition, vision, performance & production.
