  • Certain Company

    I started strumming this the other night... did a quick recording so I didn't lose it. Had some gibberish words... now I'm trying to refine. Live! Right here in this thread!



    Updated demo: http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11977040



    Certain Company



    Sometimes I'm good in certain company

    Other times I sit awkwardly... alone

    Well it may be due to circumstance

    That I prefer to take a chance... alone



    Sometimes I feel like letting go

    Turn off the lights, turn on the stereo

        I'm not much for writing lyrics without melody. Can you upload the idea?

            That sounds a lot like The Final Countdown.

              Now wait just a minute! That's plagiarized!

                  Really good ideas so far.

                    Do I get bonus points for using the word 'reciprocity' in a pop song?

                      Yes, plus envy points for using it before I could.



                      I actually wrote the word down the other night as a possible song title!

                        Here's a short vid demo of what I have so far... some of the phrasing is a bit off, I know.

                        Sometimes I'm into reciprocity

                        Avoiding all animosity... I know

                        It's a perfect plan 'cause it works for me

                        And in my head where no one else can see... I'm prone

                            Hmmm... maybe a bit. Enough to kill what I'm doing with it?

                              No - keep going. I just wanted to flag the Logical Song so that you didn't sub-consciously drift too close to the rocks.

                              Reinforce the differences.
