All By Myself With You

Antisocially romantic.

Created yesterday while procrastinating and avoiding finishing a song that I've been dragging out forever.

This is great man, and beautifully crafted. I really love the ending with your voice rising up like that...Great Stuff!

This is like a lost Beatles tune. Love it.

This is really cool. The squeezed, telephone-y vocal track works great. Really neat song.

Beautiful. I'm such a sucker for those turnarounds using minor chords (IV iv I, right?). Also, I love the rhythm ace-like percussion track chugging along.

The song is of course brilliant, but the ending (with meEeEeEEEE!) is a touch of genius.
Great one again. I should follow your example and start posting again.

Nice! That is some sort of rhythm box, right?

Thanks, guys.
The canned percussion is this organ. I recorded the guitar live with the organ's "bossanova" percussion going, then came back and did a track playing the bass line on the organ. The time on the organ isn't constant, though; it drifts, so I had to adjust the bass track every few bars or so to keep it in sync. Then I put on some real drums on the right side.
