Scary Monsters - Reworked


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is a reworked version of the first song I submitted to MJ. It's one of the first complete tunes I did in GB and is a mixture of loops and origonal parts. It's probably gone through a half a dozen revisions since I first "finished" it and will probably go through more.

Lyrics
Don't go out tonight.Just stay here in bed
Keep the scary monsters out of your head
I'll keep you safe and warm right here by my side
We'll crawl under the covers. Stay there and hide.

Looking out the window. Watching the rain.
All those scary monsters play tricks with your brain.
Creeping through the darkness. Feel the chill on your skin.
All those scary monsters come from within.

Shadows on the stairways. Shadows in the halls.
All those scary monsters cast no shadows at all.
Open up your closets. Look under your bed.
Keep those scary monsters out of your head.

Hiding with a flashlight under the sheets.
Feel the scary monsters as they tickle your feet.
Turn all of the lights on after you scream.
All those scary monsters still wait in your dreams.

Don't go out tonight. Just stay here in bed.
Keep those scary monsters out of your head.
I'll keep you safe and warm right here by my side.
We'll crawl under the covers. Stay there and hide.

Very Good Production
I like the song, the lyrics and its different melody sections.
(and the heart beat!)
The vocals seemed to me to be a little thin and a bit
separated from the rest of the song mix. Perhaps
doubling the part would help?

Appreciate your comment, Mungo. I think the vocals were recorded with my
old really crappy mic. Now that I have a newer, merely crappy mic, I should
re-record them. Thanks for giving it a listen.

Great stuff
Good song ... the music is nicely constructed with a good
mix of instruments. Nice vibe you've got going here. It
builds up a vivid atmosphere and stays interesting all the
way through.

Some people are like big children, harming others without even seeing it. Staying angry with these fools is like being mad at fire because it burns.

when I was 3...
...we lived in a tiny house. In the closet of my bedroom
was a scary monster, and it was BIG. I knew this because
of the sound of its voice...it rumbled the whole room
when it spoke. I would hide under the blanket and hold
very still.

In retrospect, it was the furnace kicking in when the temperature
fell below the threshold set on the thermostat.

Thank you for bringing this memory back to me.
