Description
This piece crosses over in several genres. I guess the biggest influences would be blues. My parts in this definitely pull it to the blues realm purposely. Has rock, country, and dance elements as well. Had to choose one so I picked blues....

Christine Bayens - Author lyrics
Dan Lockhart - Single note 60s rock 2nd guitar, progression originator
Kristine Failla - Vocals, author melody
Fred E. Jam - Arrangement, electric guitar (twang rhythm) electric slide guitar, bass guitar, piano, mix/master

Lyrics
Dust and hair flyin every where.
Don't talk to me, pretending you care
Show your money, 'cause there's a price.
Are you willing to sacrifice? I'm ready for your attack
You're not so clever thats a fact.

It's too late, you can't buy me back.
Cause I'm not gonna take it anymore !!!
I don't want a private lover
Your secrets I've uncovered

Chorus
This was not my plan !!!
To listen to all your lies
I'm done with all your scams.
Your a free-man


You're Teasin' me with all your tricks uh huh
Givin me those nasty licks....yeah
Well now it's my turn baby
Cause I'm not in the mood, no way
Now I know you sewed your words,
With dozens of red roses

I feel the sharpness of your thorns.
Holding me with your poisonous clutches.
My hair tangled with ivory horns
I coil away from your vicious touches.

Chorus
This was not my plan
To listen to all your lies !!!
I'm done with all your scams.
Your a free-man

I thought you were my hero
But I don't want you anymore
You add up to less than a zero.
You devoured my heart, like a hungry wolf.
What was left, you tore it apart.
You were cruel,right from the start.

Believin' you're the best in the crowd
Shoving me aside,I cried out loud
You treat me like a smoked out fire.
Now I know, you're a habitual liar.

CHORUS
This was not my plan
To listen to your lies !!!
I'm done with all your scams
Your a free-man

-LEAD-

Baby, was it really worth it?
To hold me back with all your force
Hey yeah did you get your dirty kicks?
Have you ever known remorse?

Last Chorus
I'm done with all your lies.
I pulled out all your thorns
I wiped away my tears,from all those years.

Impressive
Good vocal (including harmonies), interesting song, excellent production values - but I especially like the slide guitar, both the tone and the lines. Much enjoyed.

I really like the country blues influence. Kristine's voice is perfect for this tune. And Fred that slide is sweet! And are you playing the electric rhythm?? ... has a nice tone. This is real tight and an excellent mix!! Really enjoyed this style of tune.

Top notch...
Hi Freddy. You are right about trying to categorize this song. Country rock blues? Kristine does a fine job with the vocals and who your slide work is top notch. Plenty of talent flying around on this one. Take care, Peter.

I never look at genres anyway
Has a real 60s feel about it for some reason. I could imagine Jefferson Airplane doing this.

Great performances all round.

Cheers

yes I think it is Dan's single note 2nd guitar
that pulls this into a 60s rock feel. I was pleased at how well the feels blended. Thanks for the comments Dick!

sounds like a country singer. The song sounds like a Loob song, in other wards, it is pro sounding and danceable. Great band. Thanks.

I love how drummers mix...
The drums are always reverse panned... I did that forever, I only recently reverted to conventional panning. :) Anyway, cool, mysterious pop stuff! Sultry, smoky voice.. Nice fluid mix too! Enjoyable piece!
