Description
I'm jumping the gun a bit here, but it's because of the title. I wanted to post this for the 2010 reunion, but it starts too late, so I'll post it now.

Originally, this was posted in my first year here. The levels were really off and had too many effects, too. Some of the guitar work was off too. So, I've been working on this mix here and there over the last months and adding some better guitar to fill it out.

I'm going to be recording a bunch of new songs in a few weeks and really look forward to it. (Dark Planet-Tom. do you hear me?) Let's bring back Rock for the 10's- It needs to be brought back...really.

By the way, Happy New Year to all out there and to your loved ones. Let's bring it this year!

Dave

Lyrics
January

I want to hold you, baby
The season is right to change me
Come over here and save me

When I’m alone I can see myself
Drowning in the madness of my mental health
Winter has a way of making me sad
Freezing in the cold is driving me mad

I want to hold you, baby
The season is right to change me
Come over here and save me

Leaving me here within my shell
Thirsty and deep like a dried up well
Help I’m sinking and I’m falling so fast
The future is nothing if you forget the past

10's
In history they refer to this time as the early 21st century. But what do we call it? Hmm?

Thanks for the kind words, too.

Excellent remake - I really like this
Reminiscent of one of my favorite Butthole Surfer songs too (mostly in the beginning). The mix sounds great and your vocals sound great. I've done my reunion redo and will have a hard time waiting to post.

Great production and song
Builds slowly and then drives along really well. You have obviously spent quite a bit of time on getting this right. Vocal reminded me a bit of Syd Barrat from way back when. A great tune

tempie said 2878 days ago (January 4th, 2010)
i know what i can bring. i make a great taco casserole.
i like the twangy guitar, especially contrasted with the chirpy electronic drums. Stir in your usual laconic 70's trip rock approach and you get something resembling the manchester sound of the 80's, only modernized. Looking forward to seeing what father of lavalamp cooks up in 2010.

this is very catchy and brilliantly conceived and executed. if you really wanted to you could spend some time perfecting the vocal stress and delivery because it occasionally feels slightly awry. but i'm just nit-picking. great track...TOTP1

Very solid
song writing Dave - I could imagine this being successfully done in many different genres and styles and still sounding good.
Great laid back performance to start and then seems to kick up a gear. Enjoyed.

well done, fade-in to fade-out!
I never heard the original, but this is a well-balanced and listenable mix of a interesting & nicely-developed song! Glad I clicked...I listened 2x in a row. You really made this song go somewhere in its 3:20...

I thought I'd commented here - oops. I'm having so much trouble keeping up with my listening lately!
Love the intro section - nice bottom end riff under the jangle. Lovely wall of sound effect and a cool song. My only nit (and it's a very small one) is the crash cymbal kind of got pretty predictable - maybe using an alternative crash, or just moving it around a little could provide a bit more variety?
Great song!
Happy 2010,
N

This is really good
It goes from one place to another... seemlessly. Very good job on mixing up the arrangement. The mix sounds really, really good. Like that guitar accent/lead that's going on as the song fades.

This sounds like you put a lot of time and TLC in to it. Very cool. DL.
