I'm uploading this again, just for contest purposes. The music is from Zallaz, I ruined it with some lyrics and then MarkSaund worked his magic and made this amazing version.
The lyrics are inspired on Cincinnati... one of the most boring cities in the world. In 2001 it was on the 40th position in Forbes' list 'Cities for singles'... out of 40 cities... 2002 and 2003 and 2004 were better years... position #39... out of 40 cities. This year is #30, great improvement.

Little extract from Forbes magazine... 2001:
'Cincinnati is a conservative town, in many ways a mirror of the big corporations like Procter & Gamble that are headquartered there. As bland and inoffensive as the Ivory soap it produces, Cincinnati has held fast to values from another era. [...] Dining out most likely means chowing down at a chain eatery where other diners have put on their "good" sweatpants for the occasion. [...] In the end, Cincinnati can be summed up by one sad fact: People leave here to go to Louisville '
i think that's descriptive enough.... heh

Thanks to WoodCinciGuy for the art smiley

Mark and Lili's 'ultra-radical' re-working, sounds like Lloyd Cole turned up and asked 'can I play on this?' awesome.
I bet the Cinicinatti tourist agencies are glad of the exposure... sounds like they need it, lol!

Never been to Cincinnati, and this wont help... But if you all plan a gig out there, i might catch the next plane. It's a perfect pop-rock song. Reminds me of some Jesus & Mary Chain sounds. Ten thumbs up. Good luck for the contest...

Great song! Your description is hilarious, and I thought the song would be just a joke, but it's a really well-crafted, catchy, top notch pop song. If anything, it reminds me a bit of the Breeders, but not enough to detract from the originality of it. Well done!

Great chordal structure. Nice atonal chorus vocals. The accent makes it for me. The only thing is the guitar melody line in the chorus is very familiar. Great production.

How can you not relate to this one? This feels like a song that has always been and always will be.... Eternal.

One of the best sounding songs I've heard on iCompositions so far.

Woo Hoo!! This is great. Lilli you really sound great singing here. Great music also, I was dancing around on this one and that's almost as frightening as Cinci. Another scary fact is that Ohio is used as a testing ground for products to gauge how all Americans may react to them. (yeah, I'm still mad about those elections). MarkSaund has a midas touch. Instant fav guys. Good luck on the contest.

marksaund Artist Thanks for the positive comments guys. This was excellent fun to work on. Lili's lyrics and zallaz's hooky track totally inspired me. Lili, you've got to stop putting yourself down! Your lyrics are really special. You have the knack of coming up with something really original and keeping it dead simple. Your words really draw the listener in. Your delivery on this track is awesome too. As I've said to you before, you would have been a great collaborator with Tricky back in the mid 90s.

Nice work, guys. I like how everything just fits, especially in the chorus. The organs in the background provided a pretty good tone and the guitars sounded great. Keep it up!
