It was interesting to me the women that liked this one, -- cool with me.
She is a real character. In former lyrics, she was "kimbo", who brought crazy to her world, and was a "type" that fit the majority of folks in my life then, male or female, -- absolutely lacking all impulse control, "crazy" Oh, well, -- love the one your with until it's safe to move
Additionally, -- I have been trying to make a habit of breaking "format", formula as I progress with lyrics. However not lose logical structure becoming some esoteric sound, mind-picture file.
Also, the other day, I thought I lost my "old Laptop" with my DAW and etc... so quickly grabbed another and etc. and being diligent with backups. However, regardless of all of that I am pushing myself to just "grab" as many instruments, as may fit, as quickly as possible and get "demo" creation time down by rote practice. I can do a phone demo in no time, and DAW demo in like, 20mins and now a more mixed track in about an hour, -- sometimes 3hours. But, all things considered would like to get a good as possible one, sans Drum Kit to an hour. The Drum Kit is coming... -- just mic'd for hearing protection now, not recording... uh, well, so... little bit at a time, little bit at a time but asap!
And, because it's "5090", -- I do get some ear fatigue... but don't want to wait to post. So, after 3 - 4 days, I may adjust the demo mix... then listened to on "other" equipment and can hear stuff to hot/soft, wonky, and etc. So, no, you're not crazy ? if come back and sounds different, -- it may But, these are still sketches. Oh, and..., I do tend to keep the original one-take vocal so as not to loose initial idea-feel and back-in the other stuff. Heck, I'm not "making" records... just songs, but do want them tightly defined to then play consistently.
