I Feel So Dirty

Description
and being dirty ain't so bad.

this song started out as just a play around tune about 6 months ago. originally there was no intention of recording it. (i have quite a few like that, play for fun stuff). it has gone through a lot of different styles from acoustic to hard rock to grunge. and chord changes here and there. so i figured i might as well record it so i would go on to playing other stuff and get it out of my head. originally i had a pretty cool synth pad, but i dropped that and replaced it with a couple e-bow tracks instead.

the lyrics were inspired from a rolling stone magazine cover from a couple weeks back. i don't really consider this as a song about vampires but more as a metaphor....... unless you like songs about vampires then that's ok.

Lyrics
I Feel So Dirty

i found myself in the moonlight
a virgin vampires first bite
she licked the blood from my skin
she tastes my original sin
blood red eyes late at night
make a plea to survive

i feel so dirty
she will drink me dry
her seduction to fresh blood
she will have it all
and i'm stuck with a stake in my heart

victorian lady of the night
you see it in the way she is dressed
and come past midnight
i will get no rest
blood red eyes late at night
make a plea to survive

i feel so dirty
she will drink me dry
her seduction to fresh blood
she will have it all
and i'm stuck with a stake in my heart

throughout the night
as the dark settles in
here is where the poisoned blood seeps in

on the street i divert my eyes
no hello or goodbye
i am to bruised to take the bait
i am the smile on a black cats face
blood red eyes late at night
make a plea to survive

i feel so dirty
she will drink me dry
her seduction to fresh blood
she will have it all
i feel so dirty
she will drink me dry
her seduction to fresh blood
she will have it all
and i'm stuck with a stake in my heart

I really like the bass on this piece
perfect tone and insistence. Cool track concept and excellent guitars as usual - nice break at 2+. Fine vocals too.

big bottom bass
i originally had the bass even deeper.a real window rattler, but not much note definition. so i had to bring up the mid's a bit.

The long awaited sequel
to "The Deepest Bite"! Ha ha...

It may have gone through a lot of styles but it ended up in the right place. Totally cool man. This is vintage Vicar!

Be well bro!

This one is kick butt Vic
One of the best I've heard of yours. Love the changes and of course the choruses.

Great effects in the mix. Man you really have some skill there.

This song is really powerful.

Outstanding double lead too BTW.

developing mixes is just like learning to play an instrument, takes awhile. i also find i am using less tracks then i use to, less doubling up parts

I Feel So Dirty
It works both literally and as a metaphor. Reminds me of Sgt Pepper era Beatles. Vocs sound good, great lead break, cool use of echo on the guitar at the end of a phrase. Terrific production.

i almost was going to switch out sweat for blood, but i had the vocals down at that point and really didn't feel like redoing them

A cracking hook

Difficult to find new superlatives for your work.

Just great stuff Vic!

i've written over 200 songs, it gets a whole lot harder to think of something to write about. maybe i should play longer guitar solos, less words that way.:-)

hey man
this is really fresh sounding, love the electronic drums in the chorus and the edge-like guitar chops. also really like the ah-ah backups in the verse and the pop sensible muted guitar. concept-wise vampires are hot right now, who knows why they seem to be a never ending pop culture phenomenon. No doubt there's a Freudian explanation.

i like the ugly vampires myself, not the super model ones, but that's what we have. the music track has been sitting around for a month or so. just waiting for some lyrics with bite. (bad pun intended)

Dirty man...
cool guitars chugging along. Amazing guitars, in fact. How you do it... I don't know... but it's ok. I'm not meant to know.

This song must have kept you up all night long.... ;-)

Good one Vic.

on a rolling stone magazine a few weeks back there were a few people from vampire tv shows naked and splattered in blood. lyrical lines started popping up in my head so i just started writing them down, that's pretty much how it came about

after i did the vocals i started rethinking that maybe i should switch to from blood to sweat, but in the end i just let it go.

Solid tune
This is cool; it sounds pretty finished. My favorite part is the guitar, especially the echo-y chord that shows up during the choruses.

i did the music track a while back, but it seems to me that i did go through quite a few different delays and echo effect settings to get something that wouldn't woof out or get to lost in the trail

Like perceptualvortex I like that echoing guitar chord. In fact the guitar work on this is great, and makes we want to run out and buy one :)

Excellent work!
For me, I think it's the morbid quality of the lyrics presented in a laid back 1960s style vocal and musical format that made it work especially well on my end. Superb job in all aspects (as usual!) Michael

Lyrics...
I'm not much of a vampire fan.
Production: first rate in every way...That fuzz guitar around 2:15 makes for the perfect interlude, too...Your entire mix makes very good artistic sense to me, all the balances in proper proportion to everything else that's going on... I sort of wish there were a break-out section somewhere that diverged from all the rest, though I admit to having no idea what exactly that might be. I just feel the need for a bit of release from your four stanzas of pretty much the same music... Hey. What do I know? This is a cool song no matter how you slice it.

Love bites, don't it?
Vic, this tune's got more than teeth, it's got "legs" from here to Halloween, and sounds great. Sorry I didn't get here earlier, but better late than "oops" I suppose. And I can't go without acknowledging your trademark melodic lead with harmony.
