Diploma of love

July 3, 2009 9:48 PM

Statistically* most kids lose their virginity on prom night, but this is an ode to doing it on graduation night. *statistic fabricated.

From "chris love's jessica" a novelty band that i was (was in). The joke being that it was a band dedicated to one girl (that i wasn't really in love with) and all of our songs were about doing it. Our mentor was Barry White. This was written about 3 years ago for "jessica's" graduation from high school, i always wanted more people to see it then did. Even for a joke i think that it's a pretty good song. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.

Going for full honesty here, because you said you wanted feedback. The song is good, and it has arrangements that fit it very well, but the mix is kind of, I don't know, "too crowded". Everything is at the front, and a song like this could benefit from having a lot of space. Turning down the volume in some of the keyboards and panning some of the percussive/rhythm elements would do wonders. And about the voice, perhaps a good touch would be to, instead of singing it in "full voice", sing it in a more whispery voice (a la Gainsbourg). But don't take all of these comments as complaints, the song is good.
