Take me to Bed

Description
This started life as a track called Murder Blue, which didn't quite work.... so i kept the chorus chords, added verse chords, and rewrote the lyrics. This probably isn't a final mix, but hey, they never are.....

Lyrics
Say what you came to say
Is it impossible to speak?
Im not the best investment
But my stock is selling cheap.
I come round and bring you down,
As my shoes fill up with blood
From me , From me
An apology

Always stuck in my head
Come round, take me to bed
I cannot suffer inside your dreams.

Has my time come and gone?
Ah, my therapist won't crack
Im out of alibis
Just you left to bring me back.
I come round and bring you down
I aint got the genes to leave
From me, From me
Any apology

Always stuck in my head
Come round, take me to bed
I cannot suffer inside your dreams.

Always stuck in my head
I just looked at my iTunes play counts and there are three Echoroom tracks in the top 40 most-played. You really are one of my favorite musicians and I enjoyed this one, too. I love the image of shoes filling up with blood, but I especially like the chorus melody, especially the way you sang, "always stuck". That line "I cannot suffer inside your dreams," is enjoyably mysterious. I do think the vocal is too low in the mix, but as you said, one can mix and mix and mix forever and never feel done. Overall, very solid track and thanks for the download.

Glitch
Looks like there may be a glitch with the MJ servers. I couldn't d/l it now, but I'll be back to grab it later.

Thanks Lisa. I didn't think the vox was low, but will listen again over the week and tweak it. You can do the track in soundcloud, which is where I'll probably post the next remix.

Solid performance...
Solid mix. You're a little heavy on the accompaniment volume. Your vocal needs to come up above everything else. Lots of great energy especially in the bass/percussion part of the arrangement.

solid
there is a nod to U2 here, unless it's just me.
guitars sound pretty convincing, nicely structured.
i don't mind vocals deep in the mix, myself.
but i think others what to be enveloped in your awesome vocals!

echoroom said 778 days ago (September 1st, 2015)
You too?
Hey Vic

I was influenced by the strokes and Green era REM, but i think there is a bit of U2 in the solo and drop down.
Yeah, the fake guitars sound sorta real!

Hi Steve
Great tune!
Really enjoying this - you really have the whole deal sorted out beautifully here: tight rhythm section; terrific vocal; and a top tune. I agree with Lisa re the vocal, but only a dB or two, and even then, not essential. Ths mix sounds like it is very much designed for radio - very confident of you ;) I'd like to hear a mix with a bit less top end and a little more in the middle and lower end - but that's just me (and maybe my 'phones, which are on the way out).
Really good to see/hear you posting songs again this year.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

No...
... i think its my ears, not your phones! I master in Ozone 5 (I cant figure out Ozone 6), and tend to overdo the processing.... I find the verse guitar a little grating, so i think you're right. Great feedback neil, thank you.

Take me to Bed
Great intro draws you into the song from the get go, Steve. Quality song. Liking the anguished vocals, the guitar arrangements and the driving drums. Agree re the U2 nod. Should be on the radio. Fine work. Thanks, Peter.

Sure
you can always play with the dials some but that can’t hide the quality of this song.
You don’t pop one up every week but when you do it’s worth the wait.
Cheers,
Charlie

Got that email notification!
So great to hear a new tune from you. Love this high energy rocker. Excellent mix and performance. You mentioned influences earlier and I have to mention the Iggy "passenger" flashback at the end. Not a copy - just a feel - and a great one. Never a dull moment in your work Steve.

Excellent tune and performance, Steve and yes... the audio tweaking must go on until everyone's ears are satisfied. ;)

Cracking song Steve!
I pick up lots of influences but your voice comes through loud and clear for me.

I love the chorus. Very nicely done :-)

Selling cheap
If our products are the sum of our past influences .. then this number is adding up nicely.

What she (Ledebutant) said
Two ER songs in my most played list...Believe This and Love What's Left Behind.

Maybe the vox could come up a tick or two but at high volume (recommended listening, btw) I thought it sounded great. Very strong song- another download (which worked fine for me, even if the counter didn't).

So, at least I'll have three Echoroom songs in my most played list. Not at Lisa's level but I feel like I'm closing the gap :) Nice job, Steve!
