Do The Spider


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I bought a fake telecaster a few weeks ago and this was the first thing I did with it, a straight forward rock song. I usually use my Les Paul, but I wanted something new. So, here it is...DO THE SPIDER!

Lyrics
Do The Spider

All of this commotion
Under the ocean
And waves

Can’t you see emotion?
I’ve got the notion
Again

You can do the spider
If you try hard
And pray

Everybody knows you
Everybody owes you
You’re fake

Don’t you see it coming?
Systems are running
Away

You can do the spider
If you try hard
And pray

You believe I can fly
Won’t you give it a try?
And pray

Everybody make up
Everybody break up
And pray

You can do the spider
If you try hard
And pray

Everybody sees you
Everybody reads you
Don’t stay

Everybody needs you
Everybody feeds you
This way

You can do the spider
If you try hard
And pray

You believe I can fly
Won’t you give it a try?
And pray

Do The Spider
Cool song! I love that tele twanginess of the guitar parts. Very nice straight forward rock song. Cool lyrics and vocals.

Nice one!

the best spider song since...
the who's boris the spider.
the tele style guitar sounds great. very slinky and a good contrast against a les paul, plus it sounds very appropriate for this song, i really dig the surfer lead lines.
cool one Dave.

just the fake tele
No Les Paul used on this. But it's cool to have a different sound once in a while.

Thanks Vic

Nice work here
Vocal style reminds me of the song "Shattered". Crystal clear mix. Guitar tone sounds very glassy, nice. Good groove. Well done!

There's nothing like
a Tele!
I love the way a Tele forces you to fit in with IT's style rather than the other way around - there's an urge to turn up the delay, crank the reverb and generally have fun - which you've clearly done here Dave. I could probably have done without the pic though :)

Ha ha!
As Vic once told me: "Every new toy comes with at least one song built into it."

A new one for the aROCKnid genre.

The Who: "Boris the Spider."
Rolling Stones: "The Spider And The Fly."
Alice Cooper: "Return Of The Spiders."
lavalamp: "Do The Spider."

---you're in good company bro!

Digging that cool tele sound!

Be well!

Very Cool
I actually heard this from my phone the other day, but since I've had some problems leaving comments using it, I didn't want to take the chance.

Growing up, my older brother always kept exotic "pets" and one of them was a Tarantula. It was quite fascinating when it shed.

This is very cool, sounds like it could be a new dance trend! Neat lyrics & great vocals.

Commotion
With all of that commotion under the ocean, I thought this song was going to be about doing the octopus, not the spider. But as they both have eight appendages, what's the difference : )

I've been running up and down through your Macjams catalog all afternoon, enjoying your songs. You really have the knack for writing catchy tunes - the kind that you can only absorb through multiple listenings: A great way to spend an afternoon with music!

This is really catchy. I like your voice in it, and the guitar parts sounds great. The song made the picture of the spider a little less scary!

Fake guitar
But you ain't no faker man. You a real deal :)
The solo is unmistakable tele greatness.
At one point I had a tele and a les Paul. It was a very confusing time for me. Im not a good decision maker so I (made a decision) sold them and got a strat.
Cool tune

Do The Spider
Nice clean arrangement, not a note out of place, drum fills are coming just at the right places. Crisp tone out of the tele. Vocs have got just the right hint of rock attitude. Good song & well performed.
