Song Written By Mystified

Mysti made this song. I just added a little extra guitars and some Beta Monkey Drums and messed her voice all up... Granz Style!

I've enjoyed Mysti's music even though we are from musically opposite ends of the spectrum. She is so talented and I knew I could tweak this song as soon as she showed it to me.

I labored over this mix... took two days (a record for me) but I think the song turned out incredible. Now, go write Mysti all sorts of notes if you like it. She deserves whatever praise this song gets.

Matt-- you are a master of painting with sound!!! A true artist. You are one of the most inventive artists here. And combining your skills with the ever awesome Mysti-- how can you go wrong?!?

Jefferson Airplane, Missing Persons, the Beatles, Elton John (early stuff), Crowded House and anything produced by Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake (Los Lobos, Latin Playboys)... it's all here-- and then some!

This is such a delicious sonic treat. This, along with the new stuff from some of my iComp favs this week, totally made my week (plus I saw a great concert too!)!

I am loving this!! Straight to my iTunes and iPod!!!

Holy Cow!!! Matt, you've outdone yourself here! smiley
This is genius!


Ok...so I gotta tell you the story behind this song.

This was the second thing I ever composed in GB, in January of 2005-- before I had a keystation, a 'real' mic (this was recorded with the pinhole mic).

I had stumbled upon a cool, swirly retro guitar loop and knew I had to write a song around it.
Being classically trained in singing and theory, I was sort of just throwing ideas together for a modern rock-styled song (you can tell, as my vocal delivery is still rather 'classically'colored).

The other day I was talking to Matt about my early 'attempt' at writing a rock song, and let him hear this one. He asked if he might try some things with it, and I dug up the GB1 file and sent it over.

I'm just amazed at what he's done with it. I love it!!

I've posted the original HERE
Thanks for this Matt smiley

If any of you are having trouble getting that earworm of the phrase "something like that" out of your head after hearing this... just consider that I have been mixing this down for two days. This song will be with me till I die now!

Thanks for all the cool coments everyone.

2nd listen- 1st of all: great lyrics and use of language here- the chorus is genius in it's simplicity and conversationality (i don't think thats a word). 2nd: I'm really enjoying mysti as a rocker-please keep em coming 3rd: I agree with everything that has been said about the arrangement and mix-awesome Matt. This song is definately in my top ten icomp offerings of all time. 3rd listen.

Granz's icing made this one a truley delectable morsel to digest. Mysti's clear and engaging vioce juxtaposed with the instrumental retro-ish rock was truley gormmet.

you did a great work on a great basic track.
It's a late 60s song for me now.

This is Myst on top of her game and Granz at his lo-fi psych best. Classic iComps. Remember the contest for an iComps theme song? This is my new unofficial runner up! The lyrics work for me on that topic, considering what we all try to express here at iComps.

THANK YOU BOTH FOR A WONDERFUL MUSICAL EXPERIENCE.

I'll point out one wart: I personally find the shaker fade-out at the end uneccessarily distracting. Sounds too much like a loop in a song that's all so very human and lush of groovitude.

As someone who worked with the Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick I can definitely attest that the sounds are similar. I'd like to hear another sequel to this one which is based on some of the energy and vocal challenge of "Don't you want someone to Love", somthing with lots of fire. If anyone can do it, you can Mysti....Took me back to the 60's love and peace vibe, something we could use more of these days..., thanks, digitalnirvana9, Norman
