Killing Floor

Killing Floor

Liner Notes: 

I wanted to do some dance music, but once I got started, it seemed like I actually wanted to get some blues going on.

I don't rightly know what this is. Could be a new song, could be a cover. Since we're not in October, I guess it must be a new song. Besides, I don't know who exactly I'd be covering.


I should have quit you a long time ago
But you got messing with my mind
And I get so worried to keep you satisfied

I should have quit you babe, Lord don’t I know
But you got me crying, down on this killing floor

I should have listened to my second mind
When I leave you, it sends me the blues all down the line
But I wouldn’t be here doing all this time
Down this slaughter line

I should have quit you such a long time ago
Feed me honey, keep me satisfied
Don’t let me worry, ease my mind
Else I may quit you, and go on to Mexico

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

There's some muscular rock feel going on here too, even more (to my ears) than dance or blues. But whatever genre (or genres) this is (four-to-the-floor-dance-blues-rock?), it's foot-stompingly rousing and primal, and an invigorating ballad of searching for independence and dignity. Awesome!

its not howlin wolf..closer to the zep, which they lifted from electric flag. you do an excellent version which has its own flavor, a little touch of hendric in the guitar vocal call and response.

A nod to all kinds of awesome, balls-to-the-wall rock, but still totally your own. That's some major riffing!
