Ordinary Boring Life

If you feel a little bit down
like you did before
There's no use on breaking down the door
You gotta' keep it up

Everthing's gonna' be the same,
well, I don't play that game
There's no one to blame
You gotta' keep it up
before you giveit up

You've got just another ordinary boring life
You've got just another ordinary boring life

You don't have to live to regret
if you don't place the bet
This I Know

True it may be up to you
So don't play the fool
There's nothing to do
if you give it up
You gotta' keep it up

You've got just another ordinary boring life
You've got just another ordinary boring life

Chasing dreams of what used to be
and you get around, but you never leave town
you just keep it up, you have given up

If you lack the common sense to take a stand
and you don't break or bend
You let no one in
You never give an inch

You've got just another ordinary boring life
You've got just another ordinary boring life

Great track
Catches you with that opening vibe, and then that nice descending guitar kicks in. Very cool. The vocal performance is great, although at times it seems buried in the mix. Could just be my speakers, though. Nice work.

Lavalamp is an Arm Burster
Hey lavalamp,

what a cool song you have here. This is the first time I've heard your stuff, and I really thing this is dynamite. Love the unusual descending riff, then the killer break, and excellent lead. Vocals are really great - somewhere between Lloyd Cole and Jim Kerr.

Thanks for posting a comment on my song, I might not have found you. Now I must hear the rest of your stuff.

Cool tune...
...I'm with dajama: the lyrics are killer and get lost until the "Chasing dreams..." verse and on. Got it right after that.
Music works well with the lyrics. Strong and well played...but doesn't overshadow the words.

That's why I like to post songs,
Feedback.That's someting I must admit I'm still need to work on, recoring and mixing the vocals. Is it too loud or quiet? I listen with headphones, computer speakers and stereo speakers and it always sounds different. Any tips?

LOL...
...I'm an old hand on the guitar. Very comfortable on my instrument.

I'm a little baby drooling in my crib when it comes to singing and (esp) recording my tunes. Always left that to the studio cats. Just got GB and will soon submit my first tune. Having problems with my voice being too loud, at the moment. And this is just with solo guitar. I'm sure it'll be harder once I add other instruments.

So, as far as tips: keep at it. Like me. You're doing great. Like I said: you got it right at the "Chasing Dreams..." line and on. So, go from there. It's a really fine tune, man...

Cheers, compadre!

Der Hund schläft mit dem Bürgermeister
I think you know what I'm trying to say here. I've had this riff in my head since I heard it. I woke up with it this morning and to my surprise, I was not alone. Beside me was a dog, a rubber squeak toy, the Mayor and a well soiled kazoo...

This has nothing to do with your song. I reassured the authorities as they escorted them out of my house.

Keep it up Mr Armbuster

Not bored
I especially like the intro sounds and the way the bleeps mix with the guitar and vocals in the beginning.

Thanks Massa
Thanks for commenting on one of my older ones. Sometimes you think what's the point of keeping the older ones up if no one will ever hit them again.

Thanks for checking this out.

..some famous band/artist I'm not joking !: )
Peace lena
lavalamp said 3451 days ago (June 10th, 2008)
Lena?
Why did you hit this? I always really liked this song. I posted this way too early on. I suppose. I could take it down and re-post it, but something tells me that wouldn't be right.

I really appreciate that you came along listened and commented on this.

Thanks,

Dave

I like this!
Only wish the vox was a tad more forward in the mix. Apart from that it's a pleasant listen. Classic lavalamp!

Be well friend!
