Description
I thought I'd go back and tinker with one of my favorite oldies today. Redid every track. New and improved.

Chances are you have never heard this anyway.

Hope you dig this one!

Lyrics
Control

Sometimes, I'm confused you try to get me
Sometimes, I am too tired of thinking
Right now, I've come loose my bones are broken
But, everything's in control
Everything's in control

Why do I do it ?
Everything is out of control

Thought of the moment I feel for you
Under the big black wonderful night
Shifting the fire, no time will lapse
We have been waiting for this to start
You get what you want. I use what I got
Thinking of everything I wanted to do
I want...............

I just could never get rid of those Beatles. I guess they're for life.

Thanks

this sounds great dave. more than just a polish and spit job. you re-approached this wonderfully. great mix as well.

good to see you back. as a matter of fact i was just wondering the other day if you would be back after a hiatus or dropped out completley. great post to come back with!

Me, drop out? Never
I'll just have to repost more tunes! lol

Maybe I'll get back to making some new ones. But, I'm surprised how my mixing has improved over 5 years. I think it might be worth polishing off a few more.

Thanks Vic

Beatles has been said
but the progressions at around a minute and at 1:37 are so Beatle-ish!

Nicely done David!

guygrooves said 1746 days ago (October 14th, 2012)
First thing that
jumped out at me was how the vocal sounds like Mick Jagger the music might have a slight Beatle slant but I would have suggested the stones without much thought for John and the boys.

Fantastic production to mirror the fantastic arrangement. Like late 1967 to early 1968 era Lennon/McCartney. And it's sounds so clean and clear. I'm jealous over the arrangement here. The basslines, the piano. The unexpected chord changes. All of it. Great job, man!

lavalamp said 1745 days ago (October 16th, 2012)
I wonder why, the Beatles?
Is it my voice or the arrangements that make it Beatlesque? Anyway, I'll take it.

Good to see you around dude.

Lennon714 said 1744 days ago (October 17th, 2012)
Definitely
the arrangement. Even down to the instrument sounds. But it's not a rip-off, if this makes and sense. It doesn't sound like a certain Beatles song. It sounds like it could be a Beatles song.

First time round for me, Dave. Sounds great. I really like the job you did on the mix. Lovely balance and the piano and bass are sitting in there ever so nicely. The second half is inspired. Thanks, Peter.

Do Not Delete
Lol!

I have your old versions of this tune on the ipod and it says "do not delete" in the genre! Like I'd ever delete a Lavalamp tune!?

Great production on this. I love the back up vocals.

Keep rocking Dave,

Your pal,

So Eric says, "Lavalamp has a great new song"
and it is man. great chord progression and i love the chimey rhythm guitar on just the one side. piano sounds great too. what would a neil diamond bar anthem reworked by lennon sound like? I don't know. Probably not this. But it's a great sound. also like the david byrne backups at the end. cool.
