Description
It takes a while but when it happens Sam and I manage to put some music together. It's a process of me creating a music bed then sending my thoughts and audio file to Sam. He in-turn will create an idea off the name of the file by writing lyrics and a vocal melody. I'm aware many of you here on macjams do the same thing, It's just special for me when we click like this.

The idea of the song came from my grandson. He's into scary things like Friday Nights at Freddy's. On his way home from school he saw someone mark a clown on the sidewalk next to the bus. It had x'd out eyes and a smilie face. He claimed that a clown was going to be stalking him.

I didn't have the heart to tell him but I believe that is a Nirvana symbol.

Thanks for taking the time to listen.

Lyrics
Crazy Clown Dreamer
Luper/Dixon 2017

There you are just a crazy clown dreamer
How did it all change so drastically?

Time to find another town
The prices for your keep has risen
Sinister now, tell me how?
Where will you call home?
 
Where did it go the, children laughing so
Far away now that, you're a creep
Time to close the cages
Pull the tents down now and get some sleep

No use for another bow
All the empty seats aren't filling
Sinister now, tell me how?
Where will you call home?
Where will you call home?

Best to change your make up
Find a new role for the
Man behind the painted
grin. Goodbye
Get a new home, settle down
No place for a misfit clown

No balloons and silly tunes
Just memories of happy times (rept)

how the final version turned out, John. I did notice that I didn't send you the slightly updated lyrics, but it was only two things: "No use for another TOWN" was changed to "No use for another BOW" to avoid the "town" repetition. And the last line "circus in the clouds" was a countermelody that I ended up not liking and just left it out.
...And thank you Keeper.

It's been a while, so it's nice to post and read the comments after so long. Maybe things will change and I can get on the guitar and do more stuff. Your always an encouragement to me, the way you keep posting song after song. Thanks for the download.

I'm guilty of sending a lot more ideas to Sam, only once in a while are we able to come up with one. Thanks for the listen.

This sounds great...
I love the vocal tone, for starters, and I love the acoustic guitar tone...the drums, both sounds and beat/fills sounds just right to me...

The lead break is both in the pocket and lovably messy...Love those oohs in the background...

Plus, it's a good song...

It's special to see you comment on a post of mine again. I'm glad you liked the song. Sam has a way of adding to a song. It's fun to hear the results at the end. And that undiscovered lead... maybe some day.

Yep, this is a fine collab. I like the subtle vibe of this a lot and the vocal and harmonies are a real highlight. The lyrics work the theme very well. Fine soloing, too, John. Sam is in demand these days and it is easy to hear why. Well done, both of you. Thanks.

Glad you liked this. Originally the tune was played in drop D, I experimented with regular tuning using the same chords and found that it worked in an awkward way.

I don't know if you recognized the break. I used a progression from the Forbbiden track. No more balloon animals in this one. Thanks for the listen.
