angelika v3.0

April 5, 2008 2:06 PM

3.0, 'cause mixing and such is still in progress. Angelika is the name of the spam bot who sent me the email the song is about.....sort of a Cars meets Massive Attack meets Howard Jones meets Chicago kinda thing.

The email went like this:

"hello! my name angelika
to me 28 years, I live in Russia
I have seen your structure."

Those are the words to the bridge, which I basically vocoded beyond recognition.

* lyrics *

where's my belly shirted girl with flawless abs and golden hue?
where's my favorite web cam girl
a mannequin that looks like you

skin like cocoa or marble made,
a photoshopped haze

you've got 150% of my devotion to your magical fishnet thighs;
I can't keep all of you in mind, so I'm back online

I've no attention span my dear
I took the blue pill plan my dear
Forgetting how to stand in here
It's getting dark outside I hear

statuesque and posted fresh in varied states of dress

The vocal layers on the chorus are really nice.

The bridge is certainly a bridge, and then some. Been listening to some old ELO lately? (Horace Wimp)

I played this during a party Saturday night and everybody dug it and was asking who it was.

Well done, this is sweet, alright. Seconding the nod for great great vocal layers.

I really like it - I love the way it develops! Though I have to say, I feel like I've heard the melody of the chorus somewhere before - it might be just me though!
