sleep fiction

July 18, 2006 5:52 PM

A pretty catchy melody, I think -- starts slow like most of my songs, but then picks up and becomes more of a rock track. Sample lyric: "Sleeping with you is still fiction, so missing it must be a contradiction." Features vocals, guitars, piano, drums, strings.

Let me make up my own mind, why dontcha? Not catchy at all. Sorry.

Because I said I think it's catchy I am preventing you from making up your own mind? Clearly not! But anyway, thanks for the comment. I'd much rather get negative feedback than none at all.

If I wrote and recorded this, I would think it's the shiat too. Pretty damn good overall. Let's have some more.

It's crap.

It's crap? This must be an inside joke.

I'm wondering the same thing, but if it is, I'm not aware of the joke. To be clear, it's far from inconceivable that this song is in fact utter crap, it's just that leaving a comment that says that seems rather... uh... strange.

I think the word you're searching for is "rude."

This is a far cry from crap, but I have to admit I stopped short the first time I listened to this one. I'm a big fan of your other songs so I thought I'd give it another go.

The background vocal in the beginning has a couple of nice resolves, but it almost seemed to go out of tune between them. Once that initial part was over the song seemed to play a lot better. In the end I thought it was pretty good.

Keep them coming, I always enjoy listening to your stuff.

Yeah. Not really clear what is up persona non grata's ass. This is nicely done. Doesn't catch me as much as some of your stuff—felt similarly about take this pain, for example—but that's the nature of the beast.

Argh! Believe it or not that wasn't me! Some jokester took advantage of my abandoned laptop at a gathering. Thanks cortex for e-mailing me today. Moral: don't leave your MeFi logged in laptop alone at a gathering.:-( I wish I knew who it was.

Anyways, I listened to your piece and I like it. Very ambitious.

Ah, okay. I was wondering if the heat was getting to you or something. Anyway, I agree with ibfrog that there are some pitch issues here and there, and it's probably not the best song I've posted, but thanks for listening.

I noticed that the mp3 title says this is a remix. Is there any original version worth mentioning?

Not really, no. In the original mix, the guitar was just really loud, and this just has a better balance. So there are no real changes between this and the original.

Found this today after following a circuitous route. Really like it, off to listen to more of your songs now, cause if this isn't the best...
