Love Is The Drug

That Roxy Music Classic, done acoustic.

This is the first try at it, could go No Depression or could go reggae from here. Most of the vocal will stay, I think.

I've always liked the song, but like most of Bryan Ferry's stuff, I didn't know half the words. I think the first four lines, about the bell, are the best- sort of transcendent.

there are some great videos of the band in the early days on the 'Tube. Wacky!

If there's ever a movie about the band, kd lang should play Ferry. Just sayin'.

Eno should put on a ridiculous wig and play himself.

I love this just the way it is--simple, honest, calling out.

I don't know the original, but I quite like this. If you want opinions, I'd vote against making it reggae. I think this same track (guitar and voice) with some intense strings would sound fantastic.

On first listen I really liked it.

On the second listen some of the looser doubled vocals were distracting.

Still, very good.

Thanks for the comments.

It's continuing to evolve. I've redone the guitar, cut back a lot on the second vocal, and am experimenting with some bass now...
