Description
Vic sent along an early Christmas present last week. I had asked him to take a look at a tune called Hum that was not humming at all. I asked for some guitar and also said I was having real trouble on lyrics. A week or so later he sent an email that began ".... I may have gone too far." He was so wrong. What he came up with was brilliant. After some conversation Vic said maybe a female voice would be nice. We called up Anne (Sisters) and even tho she had packed up her mic for the season she agreed to help us out.

I supplied the "Sow's Ear" ...Vic made it a "silk purse" and Anne supplied the ear candy.
Merry Christmas me.

Vic Holman: All guitars and bass. Vocals and lyrics. Final mix. The base sound bed did include some reverse recording but what sounds like "reverse guitars" is actually Vic using an ebow on 2 tracks. There were 17 tracks total. Vic did a heck of a great job on the mixing final.

Anne (Sisters): BGV ... and some totally funny emails.

Me .... stuff

Lyrics
Hum ...You Can't Change Me
(Holman/da)


you have the longest reach
but you can't touch me
i've heard your claws run deep
but you won't bleed me
no you won't bleed me

la la's

yes you're daddies girl
and sucking on a silver spoon
it's all about you

you can change your party dress
you can change your dirty mind
one thing you can not do
you can't change me
can't change me

you're such a lovely girl
wicked games you play
and you always sing out loud
and you always sing

la la's

you can change your party dress
you can change your dirty mind
one thing you cannot do
if you had the time
just a minute please
you can't change me
can't change me
this is where you sing

la la's

What stuff Jack?
This is a sort of cross between "you're not the boss of me" and "I'm not listening to you: la-la-la-la". What is it with these daddy's girls, anyway. I'd hate to be young man dating these days. Whatever "stuff" you did, it must have been enough for Vic and Anne. Another good roundup Jack ;-)

Desirability
Too often
we go for the silk purse
Its softness
elegance
desirability

However

We forget
while the sow's ear
may not be desirable to us
it is very desirable
to the sow

Vic..timized indeed.
this worked out quiet well ehh vic ? Specially for me! .... i drove a clunker to the Holman Musical Garage and got back a shiny new roadster. Anne was a great match up with u on vocals .... i also appreciated you taking on the mixing cos frankly your demo was beyond what i could have done on a "good"day. Santa better be good to ya this year or i'm kicking some arse.

This is great, guys and gals!
It has an electric energy that picks you up and won't let you down. There's some really fine music here, and the melody is a grabber. I think I better keep this one.

Hum (VicHolman/Sisters Mix)
This is stunning! First of all it's a great song! Great chorus! I love the lyrics. But what blows my mind is the amazing arrangement and outstanding production. I love all the reverse effects. Remarkable work by all!

Vic and company
did a great job on this but I wouldn't call the foundation you created a sows ear - far from it my friend.

This hums along just beautifully Jack.
Great job by all.

hmmmm...
Dude, this is trippin' awesome. I am perplexed continually at how a po-dunk YB like yerself can produce stuff like this. Must be an inspiration outside of the realms of Jack or Genuine Kentucky Wild Turkey; like you actually contain some of this intuition in yer head (boggling thought, that)

You amaze and entertain me, Brother; thank you for that and your love.

this music is insanely cool - i get a most distinct vision of 'THE CIRCUS IS COMING TO TOWN" with a parade of elephants in clown masks riding tricycles down main street. Vic - you've got a beautifully flavored vocal here, makes me want to listen to all your songs! Jack - thank you for thinking of me - you rock in a most unique manner. now if i can just get these damn LALAs outta my head......8) thanks, gentlemen - that was fun - Anne

Hum
This has a unique sound and feel. I always give extra points for originality, and this has lots of it. "Stuff." Hehe, Well, I reckon the stuff is the foundation and glue. We don't dismiss that as easily as you seem to be doing. Vic and Anne ... excellent choices ... sounding good. Love the la-la section. Good lyrics.

Great collab. I like the base chord progression and the way the guitar arpeggios play off of it. Vocals are strong, and Anne's bg vocals would sweeten any mix. I can relate to the lyric.

Pretty crazy
All sorts of stuff going on. The effected guitar was great. The sort of pulsating synth thing that introduced and closed out the song was awesome. Quality work right there.

Unusual tune that hangs together nicely because of the fine musicianship and quality vocals. What's all this about a sow's purse filled with candy? :-)

humming in the short swing
love the back-and-forth swinging quality of this... there are a lot of complicated facets to this "seemingly simple la la song"... love the rhythms, bass, guitar and drum work, and the lyrics and singing are perfect for this... I'd get a headache trying to mix this much stuff down to sound so crisp and clean. Well done all!

This is quite the striking collab result made all the more satisfying considering the back story of some of the early challenges. I could gush but what's NOT to like here?? Great song, much enjoyed, and well wrapped up in a production bow. Thanks folks! - and apologies for being late to the party....

Todd - esque
This reminds me of Todd Rundgren - I think it's the circus aspect of it. The Ebow recalls Bill Nelson. (I must get one. an Ebow, not a Bill Nelson) Definitely a silk purse.

The lyrics...
I read them carefully before listening to the music. Was a little surprised with the musical rendering of these words...took me by surprise, but not in a bad way at all...just not what I expected. There IS a lot of repetition of harmony, but it is sort of mesmerizing with all those open chords that go against the tonal center of the number are arresting and they serve the general feeling of the composition well. Very interesting number that is well-played.
