(Music) Morph 1
1. Seed song @AndyGetch *47208 [*47208]
2. @kahlo [*47620]
3. @wacha [*48073]
4. @nate.gerry
5. @dzd
6. @AndyGetch

I used the some chords as @wacha but decided to turn the powerchord tune in two a swinging 6/8 thingy. My feel is more along the lines of stoner rock or something. Courtney Barnett was what I was going for!

I tweaked the words to get a rhyme scheme but the song form is the same - Verse->Chorus->Verse->Chorus

Also added some psychedelic harmonies! I had like 15 tracks of vocal harmonies, which was neato.


So much to sing
So much to say
To capture a life
In a single day

My mind is expanding
Just like the cosmos
50 songs is enough
Well almost

50 songs in 90 days
50 songs in 90 days
That’s a lot to write and a lot to play
50 songs in 90 days

There’s riffs to write
And rhymes on a page
Some of my songs
Sound like yesterday’s

Will you remember
What I sang?
Or did you forget
To listen today?

50 songs in 90 days
50 songs in 90 days
That’s a lot to write and a lot to play
50 songs in 90 days

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This is very nice! I'm glad I've avoided the temptation to listen to any previous versions. Should have a lot of fun with this. I like everything I've heard of Courtney Barnett's(really only what I think was her first major album, something about sitting and thinking I could go look I have it somewhere but am lazy) but it's spectacular, and I'd say you captured her brand of laid back rock with just a little bit quirky rather well!

I really like the change at the chorus. Good solid rock number.

Oh wow! This is really fabulous!!! I absolutely love it! You created a wonderful laid back swing rock stoner masterpiece! Such a great vibe! The instrumentation is perfect and takes me back to some great music. Your vocals are awesome. Cool change up between verses and chorus. My lighter is swaying!

I love where you took this song, it's a solid rock tune. I definitely get a bit of the stoner vibe from it, the rhythm and melody move the song along quite nicely and that chorus is really catchy. Very nice job with the challenge!

Super catchy direction on the morph. Man that '50 songs in 90 days' hook is gonna be stuck in my head for awhile. Very hip tune!
