After having a disastrous morning project today I decided to step back into my comfort zone for this song. For the locals here I'm sure they can totally relate but I know it's winter in Australia so probably not so much there. Yeah, this is Las Vegas weather and it's quite normal to be over 100 degrees every day during August. The lyrics were quite easy for me to write but I was on the rebound today and not exactly sticking to my desired plan. Jimmy reminded me this afternoon that I'm supposed to be painting pictures with words and it is a very good point. That didn't even cross my mind as I wrote this song. I simply summed up this particular day and my mood about having to go to the store. Also, we had some kind of wind storm that blew a bunch more pine on my front lawn again. I just picked up a bunch a couple days ago and I got bombed again today. Tomorrow morning I will clean that up. Jimmy is going write me a song about pine trees. Thanks for listening.
Production notes: I had problems. I felt that I was definitely singing in tune but melodyne kept saying, no dude, you are out of tune. I went ahead and went with melodyne tweaks on the vocals but I think I can do better performing this song live. This would be especially fun for me if I got my chance to play lead guitar live on this song...just take off on one of my 20 minutes solos...lol. I think this track is probably ok but I really haven't heard it yet. Currently uploading as I type. I'm a little concerned about the vocals production. I could redo the vocals and move this track to version 2. I don't know enough yet. Thanks again.
An August hot summer day
He expected it to be that way
Not that bad just one hundred and five
Still, he just stays inside
The air conditioner is on
Summer days are pretty long
Nothing is going wrong
He's sitting there writing another song
Too hot (to go to the store)
Too hot (to do his chores)
Too hot (it is one hundred and five)
Too hot (rather stay inside)
No more ants he took care of that
He used the bug guy Kason as a matter of fact
He does need to get up and go to the store
Just like he did the day before
Time to stock up on some more food
This song is already placed and queued
He has a time slot he's going to use
Some kind of rock but probably more blues
Steering wheel hot from sitting in the sun
Pine still dropping like rain
Not a single cloud in the sky
He's ready to get going so he can jam
Why does his cat try to bury its food?
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
