Lost In Conversation

Liner Notes: 

This was a fun prompt. A lot more could be done with this track like more space, some keys, BG vox. Maybe later.

Guitars: '94 Fender Mexi-Telecaster

Amp: '78 Marshall Mk II
Note: Skirmish: 1 hour to write and record although I took almost 2 hours.


Lost in conversation

Got jacked on the way to the celebration
Don't have an explanation
Separated from the aggravation
Lost in conversation

Perpetrators of salvation
Collect victims of alienation
Preachin' Hellfire and damnation
All lost in conversation

All around the world
It's just talk, talk, talk
Heard the jive comin'
From up the block
Yak, yak, yak
'til we don't know what "is" is
Anonymous chat room
Gettin' up in my biz

No time to give an oration
Of indeterminate duration
Comin' after your information
It's lost in conversation

All around the world
It's just talk, talk, talk
Heard the jive comin'
From up the block
Yak, yak, yak
"Would" means "wouldn't"
I could send a flock of tweets
But I know I shouldn't

If you want a new translation
Be aware of the implications
Don't fall for imitations
Or get lost in conversation

Funky and adorable. So full of energy. Amazing how many different ways the theme of lost/conversation came out. Very inspiring song!

Dang, this is really cool! Hey, any time you can take an extra hour and produce something this awesome I say Go Fo It! Really great take on the skirmish!

Wow! This is really a fun funky groove that took me y surprise in a really good way! Love the energy and the awesome rhymes of the chorus! Strong bridge too. Well executed piece of music!!

Like Oingo Boingo got David Byrne as their new lead singer! So delightfully jumbled and jagged, a crazy to-the-point portrayal of the way things have gotten. Excellent use of all those rhym-ations!

Dude, this is my new jam! Super funky and cool. Love that deep low end. Very catchy and rhythmic. Some superior rhymes in this. Love it!

So funky, such cool instrumentation! I dig the exuberant vocals a lot, too. This is a great, groovy, fun song.

Wow, that bass is killer, dude. Btw, whasup, Jah Dub? I hope you're having a good 50/90. Seriously, though, that bass is killer. Guitar stabs are cool, too. I really dig this music. And your phrasing in the vocal melody works really well, too.

Loving that fuzzy bass line! Works so well with that style of lyrics.

Awesome job! Smile
