For when you're trying to find the perfect way to tell your Valentine that you like like them. Because nothing says romance like contrastive focus reduplication.
this is a tune I wrote over 11 years ago. Ive posted it once as "Marra Wanna be like me" The Version is a rare 4:19 mix. [more inside]
Remix of a friends' band recording (and some side project done with me) from sometime around 2001-2002. I'm certainly in the mood for a party (same era) There was also an intro using bits of this mix, but I think it's only on some ancient mini-DV tape for now..
A less than two minutes song. [more inside]
I think this'll be my last music post for a while, until I get my shit together, as it were. Thought I'd round it off at a nice even 10. And, I thought it fitting to post this super-old song, ('98 or '99), which was my first attempt at "multitrack hard disk recording," with one Sure SM58 mic, some crappy Mac software on an old biege G3, handclaps and a LittleTikes™ toy piano. I used what I had. Way back when, I posted it on sites like the old mp3.com and it got some nice feedback which felt awesome and immediate and kind of weird and new. After a while I got sort of jaded with all the online music site stuff because it was clearly becoming the "So You Think You Can Dance" of the Internet, at the time. Posting stuff recently to music.metafilter has rekindled a lot of that fun, immediate kind of vibe for me, so I thought this was a good way to complete the circle. At the time I called this "a happy song about sad people," which I guess it is. It was written after leaving a shitty job. It sounds kind of corny and twee now, and the recording quality is pretty shite, but it was sincere at the time. Cheers everyone. In preview this seems like way too much information. Oh well.
