Lyrics
can't stand still
old man on the hill
said there's more fun coming son, this'll kill ya
crawl across the desert, to look for some shade
the poor man sits and waits to get paid yeah.
how long is this gonna take
you're still hoping for a= golden age
i;m sure its coming any day now
if i could put things straight
so that id get out of my own way
how many footsteps, how many breaths
you don't know how many heartbeats you've got left
if i were you i'd run away
but if you wanna wait
you can hear some more complaints about my brain-states
i'm gonna fix this radio up,
the frequency's stuck, and this station plain sucks
ring ring a ding a ring a ding ding
and c'mon c'mon all night long
try and catch what life is throwin atcha

I like the riff that drives this. Love all those guitars and the different things they're doing - especially the fuzzy one in the right channel and the ones doing the solo from 1:48 and then 2:48. Intriguing lyrics, solid vocal. Good one!

Strong all over. Fun lyrics. I like the change into the chorus. Lots of variation in the arrangement, I like all the different things you're doing with guitar. All the parts are sitting well in the mix.

thanks for the positive feedback. the variation is probably just me cramming whatever riffs I come up with into one song LOL. I never save one for some other song. Glad you liked the mix, I think the Ozone 5 program helped it sound better.

Rock and Roll Runaway Hit!
I love the guitar work on this song. Also the song itself is a winner. About the only thing I would like to hear is some backing vocals (I'm such a child of the 60's). Great job all around.

I agree with you on the backing vox. I thought about it but I was getting too confused with all the different tracks etc. However that is an idea I will definitely consider for the next one!

T. Rex
Yessir, T Rex / Marc Bolan is one of my favourites. His album "the slider" is one that I always go back to. It was in the CD changer just last week so I think you pegged the influence correctly!

You've Got The Knack
Musically, this reminds me of The Knack, which is pretty spiffy, if you ask me. But it's uniquely rockin' in its own right. Nice change of textures and feel in the midsection. Nicely done! ;)

Yes I am a fan of the "power pop" genre into which the Knack fit quite solidly. Actually, since you mention it "My Sharona" also had a slightly out-of-place instrumental break so maybe they were a direct influence... Glad you like it!

Yeah my man. Nice and cool rock piece.Clean Production hip playing and the Vox real slick with that guitar magic. Fun upbeat piece. Digging the later groove established and it's on. Get down baby!

Relic67 said 2016 days ago (March 13th, 2012)
thanks!
A lot of the production sound comes from the different plugins like Guitar Rig, Ozone 5 and Nectar.
It's funny about the meaning, I don't feel good about the song unless there's a core of something that has some meaning to me, but it gets lost by combining any fragments of ideas I have available, and mutating them repeatedly into something approaching nonsense to make it rhyme etc... Thanks for checking out the tune!

This is a trip back to R&R. Cool and a great retro tune harkening back to that golden age.

this is brilliant.
Love the contrast between the sharp jaggy bass driven riff and the sweetness of the chorus. this sounds like something you'd easily hear on the radio. Very clear and punchy production, and that flanging guitar is the dog's bollocks. Nice one.

Joe Jackson... I listened to his stuff a lot in high school. Now that I think of it, I believe he used a couple of similar guitar shapes on the song "Look Sharp" so you might be hearing that....

How Many Heartbeats?
You somehow manage to pick and choose elements from so many moments in rock history and arrange them in a way that they are still distinct and so very original. You start out with blue suede shoes and chili peppers and blend into Byrds and Crenshaw and an Ace Frehley solo battle with Mick Ronson to boot.

This is a great arrangement and so well played. Your vocals and back ups are terrific, especially in the chorus parts. You always shine in the chorus dept.

One of the cool little things that stood out to me in the first few listens was right after the 1 minute mark, when you sing "and this station plain sucks".... and the really cool howl that mimics the guitar. Nice!

You are the golden age Mr 67!
