Liberace in L.A. on LSD
This song started, as many others before it has, with a conversation with my good friend and songwriter Nancy Rost. Not sure what the context was, but one of us (Nancy I think) remarked that something was like 'Liberace on LSD' . From there, I said, that's got to be a song, and put this crazy little thing together.
recorded using my mandolin -its just mandolin and vocal, live, with a little post-processing of the audio to give it that certain slightly lysergic shine...
Liberace in LA on LSD
Saw things in sequins no one should ever see
Ebony and ivory elephants doing a hippo dance
Thousands of blue haired chihuahuas staring in a trance
Liberace in LA wearing gold lame
Candelabra reflections on silver trays
White Cadillac on Mulholland drive, the shape of a giant tongue
Dinosaurs sit in the tar pits waiting for songs to be sung
It was a normal day in LA if you’re Liberace on LSD
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
