Lyrics
Waiting For The Sun To Come Out

starting everyday this way
driving in the pouring rain
it will let up soon they say
maybe even the clouds will break
but still the skies are hanging gray
all the rain keeps coming down

all i want to see is the sun
all i want to feel is the sun

i go to sleep i hear the rain
it washes into my dreams
i am drowning in my sheets
raindrops keep pounding on me
awake the memory slightly fades
somewhat washed and slightly dazed

all i want to see is the sun
all i want to feel is the sun

i feel so drowned down to my skin
i feel so wet all over again
i'm just waiting for the sun to shine
dry me out and hang me on a line

weatherman says more of the same
puddles reflect clouds of gray
winds keep pushing more this way
sunshine is on holiday
still the clouds are hanging gray
and the rain keeps coming down

all i want to see is the sun
all i want to feel is the sun

and we're waiting for the sun to come out (6x's)

How appropriate
that I listened to this on my way to work- while it is raining here, AGAIN! Heck, with as cold as it has been my snowblower is still in my garage too, lol!

The mix sounds fantastic on my car stereo. Great song Vic!

if it's not rain that's coming down then it's hail. But, today it was finally blue skies all day long. i finally was able to rake up the late falling leaves from last fall.......and everything is covered in moss, dang

sweet and pretty tune
love how this just slouches in, and i really dig that little turnaround at the end of each verse and the way that the lead sometimes accents it. great lyrics too, i like the 'sunshine is on holiday' line and the repeat at the end. reminds me of the jayhawks. happily downloaded. thanks!

Thanks Craig
i can slouch alright. the lyrics came fast so at least rust hadn't settled in. i thought the repeat lines at the end was a chant to drive the rain clouds away. it worked, sunny today.

Dry Me Out
Hang me on a line.

Sweet lead riff after that line. Really, really like the guitar sound there. How do you have it set up? Do you mic the amp or plug straight into your interface? Please do tell.

Nice one Vic.

Sunny thoughts from your Valrico based fan club

Bob

i recorded all the music tracks in one siting, the next day i did the lyrics and vocals...... but it took me several evenings to get a final mix. acoustics and vocals are in the same frequencies and can be a bear to work them in together.

Thanks Jack
everything goes straight into logic. amps, effects and final mixing. One thing is that i will usually try out different guitars to get the tone or vibe I'm looking for
........ my amps and multi effect pedals are getting very lonely

I like the chord progression, particularly the quick fill at the end of a line. Vocals are strong. Nice acoustic & electric lines, mix sounds great, maybe the vocals could be up a bit.

Awaiting the sun...
This has such a nice groove to it...very Beatles-ish sounding to me. I hope the sun comes out soon.

I like the guitar tone a lot. It sounds like you're hitting harmonics but I can't be sure.

Cool lead as always.

Great song.

nice one vic
this is a great song, you should sell it to elvis costello. perfect pop. your guitars sound great, I really like the change in your sound since you started using Logics amp sims. I like the tape delay pedal too, it's really making that solo stand out.

logics amp sims and effects are great. I even jam around with logic studios mainstage since they are so diverse.

Waiting
The bright echo-y reverbed up guitars are great, very chimey. They really set the atmosphere (as wet as it is) A real fab 4 influence on this. Great mix and killer arrangement. Very engaging.

Rain IS the best...
I enjoy rain like nobody's business; we have a gazebo in our back yard that exists largely so that I can go out back and listen to the rain...

Even so, I'm really enjoying the lyrics on this song, Vic... The middle drippy guitar solo bit fits really nicely, too, I think...

I do like some rain in the summer, to cool things down a bit. right now it pools up on the roads and it's a gamble if there is a deep pothole at the heart of it... i've found quite a few, i appreciate your listen.

Fragile
I love how this seems to want to fall over at every step. Like Sparkelhorse's "Cow" the song feels like it is going to topple any second. That quality with the dreamy vox and guitar gives the whole thing an urgency belied by the gentleness of the sentiment. And that chiming guitar solo: Love it.

Hell Yeah
this is one of the best I've heard on MacJams in a while...
fantastic, catchy tune. great melody.
nice rainy vibe overall, as usual with your tunes there's a very interesting palette of guitar colours. nice vox and overall production.
Loud sustained applause!

drums
Nice song. Great guitar sounds. I think the thing that grabs me the most though is the way the drums follow the melody down in the verses. It's different and a clever way to underline the "insistentness" of long rainy periods.
