Ode To C.C. (Part II)

Wasn't going to do this one for Rocktober, was just for my own personal amusement, but some no muffler having truck drove down the road at a pretty opportune time, couldn't resist Biggrin

but my obligatory Flaming Lips tune out of the way :D, might still do one of their new album ones, I've already learned a few of those. This wasn't released until 87? I think? but probably written late 70s very early 80's possibly a 1980 one Biggrin

Oh wow this one really picks up! Very cool track, once again great production. Even when it gets louder that acoustic still cuts through so clear!

Yup very cool. Gotta love the lips and this is a nice version different enough! Nice. Might think about a lips song!

this brings back many happy memories of seeing the lips in concert. love it when the obliterating noise breaks through

Oh, I'm loving the noise & chaos in the second half of the tune. And like @Kurtis Kanttila says, the acoustic still shines through perfectly. Awesome mixing & production on this one, @dzd :!:

See You In The Shadows…

I have not heard the original of this song.
Great acoustic work at the beginning.
Ah, then the dinosaurs start bellowing.
And the acoustic guitar starts running away from the T Rex attack.
(Sorry, just making up my own story here)
Yeah, nice work, but too short!

Well done. There's something about "songs/music" this period or earlier; and for me, post late, late 60's, almost 70's so late Smile Good stuff.

So nice of him to tune to your key! (Like my neighbors lawnmower in D)

Lovely psychedelia ... sounds great! Love the way the noisy section comes in but never obscures the acoustic one. Will have to check out the original!
