'Mark Does God' Album Out Now!

Recommended Posts

That's right, folks. The following ten songs constitute my un-holy (and innumerate) trinity of 'religious' tunes

 

Simply download the songs (for free, obviously - no one buys songs anymore) and you will have what used to be called an album, but is now called several tracks that have been downloaded for free. It really is that simple. And you're welcome smile.png

 

Holy Mother

 

Hypernatural

 

You Are Here

 

In Paradise

 

The Beauty Of Creation

 

You Promised

 

The Life Of Me

 

Magic Spell

 

To Think

 

Take Me Home

Edited by Mark L
Soundclick version of Holy Mother! replaced with Soundcloud version - better sound quality

I'm loving "Holy Mother!" Kind of like XTC crossed with Spiders from Mars.

 

Great stuff. Once again, you have maybe the best rock voice of anyone I know personally, 3DW or online. You always sound like you're on the radio. wink.png

And of course, no "Mark Does God" collection is truly complete without the special, overproduced remix of Magic Spell!

 

Come to think of it, a cool project would be SSS producing a The Songs of Mark L compilation with his songs done by anyone except Mark. Ernest and I have already done our contributions, so we're partway there. C'mon, everyone here likes his songs, so pick one and do it. Just because you think you can't do it as well is no reason not to. Hey, it didn't stop me!

 

The other good news is you can do cover versions of Mark's songs and not only does he not sue you, he actually enjoys it.

I appreciate that, mate. Thanks smile.png

 

Here's an el-cheapo video I put together to accompany the song

I love listening to your and Ernest's versions of my songs, and it would be quite amazing to have a 'Songs of Mark L' compilation, done by the uber-talented folk on here. I'd die a happy man :)

This is not your typical dance mural. Very pretty besides. If it wasn't free I'd buy a copy.

Very kind of you, Sir :)

 

Most of that is Craig's work. I just wrote it and sang on it

Love that bridge on Holy Mother! where the vocal harmonies layer on in classic 60s mode - very very nice.

 

The vocals are standout in the song, as Blue mentioned. Your vocals sound more confident to me, which is the key to good vocals. Of course you may not feel more confident, but that's beside the point smiley-happy

 

I'm on to the other songs just now - I'll feedback when appropriate...

Oh, that's all? smile.png Jeez, what a slacker. We all know everyone just listens to songs because they like particular mic preamps. Songwriting and singing...such a minor part of what makes a song appealing :)

Ha! You know what I mean. I just sent you the instrumental track and the vocals, and you worked long and hard to produce that amazing soundscape

 

If I could use an English food analogy: my version is an individual chip (French fry) on a plate, whereas yours is a full serving of fish, chips and peas, complete with kiss-me-quick hat at the Blackpool Illuminations! (Google it) ;)

I've listened to all the tracks - yeah, the Soundcloud track definitely has a better sound quality.

 

After Holy Mother! I've found You Promised as the next most memorable one. The lyrical trick of starting line with a Biblical phrase and ending with a personal twist/complaint is a great little technique.

 

Actually the overall flow and drive of You Promised I think I rate over Holy Mother! - but the hook in Holy Mother! is hard to beat.

 

The little bridge in You Promised maybe you could run through twice and add some more instrumental color to fill it out a tad -

 

I'm listening on lo-fi speakers, and it's an old-fashioned good song on the radio experience, no question, all the tunes.

Thanks again, nat :)

 

I'm afraid You Promised will have to stay as it is. I recorded that one on my trusty Zoom 16-track, which has a 40 GB hard-drive. When the hard-drive starts to get full I tend to format it to make room for new songs :0
