Here's a song from a few months back. It won't be re-done (Ian has already done three re-mixes), but I thought you might get a kick out of it. wink
Genre: rock punk-opera? wink

By the way, Ian's a drummer. Never let it be said that drummers can't do more than one thing well. grin

Magical Misery Tour

Intro
In this circus of love
Iím the ringmaster
Hold on to your seat
This ride can go faster

(v1)
Come into my sideshow
I say with a grin
My magical misery tour will begin
Iíve sold the last ticket
Thatís all for today
The others have left
Now itís your turn to stay

Bridge
The magicís in my loving
And the night Iíll spend with you
The miseryís in my leaving
But others are waiting too

(v2)
Move closer, my lovely
Step right over here
No need for alarm, youíve nothing to fear
I think you have secrets
Youíd like me to know
So letís dim the lights
And get on with the show

Chorus
Let me take you, take you, take you
On my magical misery tour
Iíll break you, break you, break your heart
But youíll only want me more
One ride on my painted pony
Will open heavenís door
Let me take you, take you, take you
On my magical misery tour

(v3)
First we'll ride the merry-go-round
Then the tilt-a-whirl
For one mad moment youíll be the right girl
The simulator
Will reach such a height
Before we wipeout
At the end of the night

Bridge
The magicís in my loving
And the night Iíll spend with you
The miseryís in my leaving
But others are waiting too

CHORUS

One could never say that you are not ambitious with your stuff!!

Not really in the realm that I can critique, so I'll just say I gave it a listen for awhile.

Hi Donna,

This is very cool; lol reminds me of Calvin's songs, has that mystical feeling. I think the music and vocal suit the lyric perfectly. smile

Dottie, Tony, Glynda, glad you enjoyed this one. It's pretty zany. smile

And Ott, yep, the title's been done, for sure. wink

It was funny, when the title sprang to mind and I hurriedly wrote down the basic lyrics, I wasn't aware of the Beatle's album. But even after I was informed, I decided to go ahead with it, there being no copyright on hooks.

WHooo-WOW!!

Yeah, totally, echoes of Rocky Horror vibes!
I love that you didn't know about "Magical Mystery Tour" when you wrote it - awesome! LOL

This is really, completely wild in a terrific way!!
And scary in the way those carnie people really can be - quite a bit creepy. I rememeber getting "looks" from some of 'em as a teenager at the county fair, LOL!!

PERFECT.

Great write - and great production just suited to its weirdness!

I just thought this was a lot of fun. I definitely got the Magical Mystery Tour thing, but figure you were making a play on the words. And as I had said before, I agree about the Rocky Horror sound to it, but it definitely has your unique twist. One of the things I really admire about you is your ability to find the right collaborator for your wonderful lyrics, regardless of what style is required. You certainly did that with this one. It was weird, quirky, even a bit creepy, but such a fun listen!!

Found the take very intriguing. Loved the back beat and how the story progresses.

This is rather good IMHO.

Hi Donna

Definitely rock punk opera... Very cool production, very effective! Hits it's mark.
It's even more Rocky Horror than Tommy and more Alice Cooper than The Who. Everyone did a great job! And its ready for an indie film too.

All the best
Mike


Thanks!

DONNA,

You go girl!! That is crazy fun!! Very theatrical and rockin!! I like when folks push boundaries and do something different and this is pretty cool. I thought a few of the lines could have been phrased so that they would have been more dramatic, but overall..fun!!


LOVED the write on the bridge....

WOW...You ROCK, LadyChum..You & Ian & Mike!

Great EVERYTHING here...

LOVED the Irony, Cocksuredness, and FUN in that "But others are waiting too" line--Pure ROCKSTAR if ever there was a Pure Rockstar Line!

Musically-Vocally, this baby covered all the bases from Rocky-to-Ozzie..to even tidges of The Joker in the BATMAN Movies.

Quite a RIDE!!! Hats-Off to all-involved, very-enjoyable Listening!

Good Luck with it! Best Wishes & Big Hugs,
Your Fan Stan

Hi Donna,

Wow--I don't really listen to this genre(anymore) but that's a kickin song. I might be dating myself here but I could see Alice Cooper singing the hell out of this back in the day. I got to hand it to you--you really diversify your music. very nicely done. I feel like kid again. LOl. Alice--someone's got a song to itch. LOl. Take care,
Roger
