Fruit Truck

December 31, 2008 7:35 AM

Imagine a truck full of fruit, hauling ass down a long, winding road. It's driver, eyes red and glowing with hate, oblivious to the trail of oranges and grapefruits he leaves behind...

When I wrote this, I imagined a truck like this swerving and sliding all around the road. The driver is most likely upset at his lack of sales and puts this song on to make it home while doing maximum damage to himself, the truck, and anyone in his path.

I wrote this after listening to a few days of Django Reinhardt. However, I make no claim that it is even 1/1,000th as good as even his most foulest of flatulence.

As I have mentioned in previous posts, my songwriting abilities lack focus and direction - so it's just one part, with slight variations, repeated over the course of a minute and a half. My apologies for the compression, I have learned many things about mixing since this song was written and I have lost the master recording. Re-mixing is not an option.

I really like this. Listing to Django didn't you do any harm, that's for sure.

This is tons of fun, and I really like the watery drums underneath the gypsy jazz. Really nice fit.
While the song may not change much thematically, you got the fruit truck in there perfectly. And your mixxing isn't bad at all. Going to need to hear some more from you I think.

Also, someone on mefi with animation chops should take this on.
