Transmission Earth


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
chord inversions, triads and plenty of open strings.
while watching the last episode of cosmos, i got to thinking what if a similar world to ours, but a couple decades behind, received the last of earths radio waves. sounds like a twilight episode

transmission earth

beyond the oceans of delicate light
threading through the dark mass of night
fade away the last radio waves
white noise again, again
transmission earth what did you send
transmission earth please send again

radio transmission leaked through the stars
elated that someones out there
and we though there’s no sound in space
but your voice broke through anyway
transmission earth what did you send
transmission earth please come in
the last thing we heard
all the beautiful people go to vegas

no reply to message sent
on a lost island in the stars
transmission earth are you near or far
you have fallen off our radar
transmission earth what did you send
transmission earth please come in

Beautiful people go to Vegas
That about sums it up I can just see the Alien scratching his head saying what are these stupid humans doing sorry about the babble . For some reason it reminds me of early Genesis like Nursery Crimes, excellent song!

Nice mix
If we're being judged by our broadcasts, that would certainly explain why no one has shown up here. ;-)

Great guitar playing
Some of the best I've heard from you. Really impressed Vic, some nice work to be proud of. The progression is well put together and those vocals are spot on.

did a bit of fleshing out on this before i started recording this. not very much in standard chords, but that was what makes this one interesting to play.

Really Vic...this is waaaaay out there. I love ALL the guitars. The the dual-lead solo trip and your vocals are otherworldly.

The premis of the song is cool
.... And the vocals are as someone said "spot on". So here is the sixty four thousand dollar question. Will you ever stop getting better and better?? The guitar work is killer. Will download later. Excellent work!

Vegas. Haha. Yep. At least I hope they didn't see broadcasts of Honey BooBoo. I really like the break around 2:00 - 3:00. Lovely chords. Good concept.

Bowiesque, but also agree with Tim about early Genesis.

going at a slower tempo helps on vocals, for me at least, especially on a slightly odd chord progression

Interesting idea. Great guitar tones and the lead is a killer. It has a dreamy, other-worldly feel. They are tripping on Planet X. Thanks, Peter.

Calling Major Tom ...
It is interesting to consider that, some day, an alien civilization might pick up a radio broadcast of Pink Floyd, Tom Petty, or – this piece.   It’s good ... well-composed, very imaginative, well played.

I get a bit of "Ground control to Major Tom" here in the dreaminess of it. Potent guitars. This is entertaining at all levels, Vic.

twilight zone or outer limits?
there was an episode with Darren McGavin where he was hired to finish a TV series that had got cancelled before the story ended. Turned out it was aliens that had been receiving the show and wanted the series completed. Cool tune!

Interesting idea
2.45 or so is the bit I like. A recent RSP song is about an alien trapped on Earth after his homeworld is destroyed, so I feel a connection here.
