Description
This is a submission for the Lost Song Project. Of course you have to guess who I'm trying to rip off. Artist and album. It's probably a heavier track then "the boys" had intended.

Lyrics
Crazy Star

you lost your head past the clouds
we threw you a rope to bring you down
oh how we tried to hush the sounds

crazy star you shined so bright
now you hide from the shadows that haunt your mind

on a sharp steel edge you slipped your mind
we are picking up the pieces you left behind
crazy star you burned so bright
now dark holes fill your mind

demented memories gone to far
fly on the wall held your calls
lost all outside contact after all

you threw away the key to you cell
talking to no one on a panic to fail
oh how we should have read the writing on the wall

crazy star you shined so bright
now you hide from the shadows that haunt your mind

on a sharp steel edge you slipped your mind
we are picking up the pieces you left behind
crazy star you burned so bright
now dark holes fill your mind

crazy star you shined so bright
now you hide from the shadows that haunt your mind

Dark Side of the Moon?
Just a guess. It's all the echoes on the vocals and "slidy" guitar which remind me.

Great song anyway. Superb arrangement and playing as always.

So you moved from LE? (you probably did a while back but I never noticed) I never got my head around LE let alone full blown Logic.

You're definitely using it to good effect.

Cheers

Hey Dick
Logic isn't so hard once it clicks. the compressors alone are better.

I can't release my dark side yet

Err Pink Floyd
on the album 'Wish you were here', thats my guess. Very good track, I love it. Well done VIC. All elements are very well done.

(Note: Your voice actually sounds like Peter Gabriel, and thats no bad thing.)

just a guess...
definitely floyd! definitely a great tune! i'd have to say momentary lapse of reason for the album though...has that "just after waters left" feel to it, to me anyways. let me know if i'm correct. great tune again man, great tune!

Peter Bauckham said 3612 days ago (November 30th, 2007)
Well
I'll go along with Pink Floyd but as to which album? Something pre-dating DSOTM perhaps - Meddle... although the lyrics rather hint at Wish You Were Here?

Great track!

Great stuff Vicar! Surely this is the one that got away from "Wish You Were Here..."

Be well!

Love it
Whooo, this is fabulous. I mean fabulous in its own right aside from its Floydiness.

There is something Dark Side Of The Moon about it ... it has just the kind of dark intensity which belongs to that album.

Nice one!

Thanks Rebsie
well the band I'm emulating did tend to go after the dark side of the human psyche on most of there. albums. Alot of help I am :-)

Epileptic Gibbon said 3612 days ago (November 30th, 2007)
No idea who it is... ;-)
But seriously (and that wasn't my guess - I don't think it's Phil Collins!), it's seems obvious that it's Pink Floyd, but I think people have the timing wrong. Wish You Were Here fits lyrically, but the sound fits better with Animals or The Wall. I'm really intrigued to find out which album you were going for.

I'm with you on this
Maybe more toward the earlier albums...

Cool song
Vic Holman said 3611 days ago (November 30th, 2007)
i guess we spill the beans in a week
who knows maybe there is a unknown anthology album they never released. without Phil Collins of course

"Crazy Star you shined so bright"
kinda seals the deal on Wish You Were Here - but that could be a clever red herring. Still I'm gonna go with it. Great track Vic. I've only listened to 4 entries so far and I'm having a blast.

Nice Emulation
of the Floyd feel.

Much of musical chronology is a blur to me now, but I'm guessing, because of the two lyrical references to *the wall* that it falls sometime after that landmark work.

My second guess is The Monkees from their *Head* album. lol

Great-sounding work, Vic. ;)

Floyd...

.. heavy version .. the chords give a hint .. then
the first verse vocal melody was very Roger Walters ..
but other bits chorus (say) sound earlier Floyd .. making an album choice hard .. but I'd go with "Wish you were here".

This is such a cool game - wicked results! Influences on sleeves too ...

Awesome Vic, geetar is inspired. Fine mix too.

damn you
i know it's Floyd, and the crazy star thing is definitely Wish You Were Here, but that echo on the vocals (haunt your mind) is going to make me go with Animals. This is an awesome track Vic, although you could have made it easier if you put some dogs barking.

Very cool...
At first... I was thinking Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders. Then I thought for sure it was Peter Noone, frontman for Herman's Hermits (who, btw, lives here in S.B.).

;)

But I will defer to the consensus choice of Floyd.

well either way the character here is on a mind bender. :)

peacepiano said 3611 days ago (November 30th, 2007)
Ditto
I would place this as heavy "Wish you were here", too slick and bluesy for early floyd to my ears.

Thanks

..difficult to pinpoint the album as its a mix of the spaciness of Meddle coupled with the aggression of The Wall. Really cool track!

I've gotta be boring on this one...
...and lean toward "Wish You Were Here" or "The Wall"... I hear references to both...

First lost song I've listened to. What fun...

Hey Floyd?
err... I mean Vic, haha. I had to come back to leave a comment because I thought you'd like to know how much I'd diggin' this track! Nice job, sir! To me it seems like it would fit in nicely with Dark Side of The Moon, but wadda I know?

It's a good thing that everyone else...
...seems to know who's emulating who on these Lost Songs.
I keep looking out for Beethoven and Bach...

But seriously, my lack of knowledge hasn't taken away from enjoying these songs.

This is very cool--dark, driving, haunting. You get a fabulous, big sound and a great intensity in those vocals. Kudos! :)

Vic, what a great track. You should do a whole LSP CD :-) Just the right mix, vocals and guitars meshing nicely. That guitar at the end (actually the whole end part) is outstanding.

Your voice is getting EXCELLENT!
You're really starting to put some muscle into those vocals, and the result is really impressive. A little hint of Peter Gabriel, but still Vic and Vic alone.

My guess is Pink Floyd... off the Wish You Were Here. OOooooOOOR... how about Klaatu off the Endangered Species album? It would really fit, and that would be a sly manuevre and a half!

What a killer track, Vic and you just nailed the sound of 'the boys,' right to the wall, which is the album I have to go with. The outro sounds as though it could segue right into, "Is There Anybody Out There?"
Vic Holman said 3607 days ago (December 4th, 2007)
Hi Lisa
True, the band that I'm plundering here did segue into other songs on quite a few of their albums

Well
This is really awesome, whoever it is. It all definitely sounds familiar, but I'm going to have to go with The Wall. Which reminds me, I've got to break that album out again. The guitar leads have a real Gilmore feel to them, and the chord progression, song topic, mix, effects and slightly desperate vocals all make me think Floyd. Awesome.
