    Selfie Queen

    This will be the last completed video I post until I finish a new song. This one is recent. I wanted to write about a topical subject and I thought this fit the bill. I also thought that even if guys hate the song, they will probably like the slideshow. 🙂 Comments on song or video are welcome. As a BTW, if you’re curious, just go to YouTube and search ‘Joe Vicas” and you’ll see a whole bunch of music videos to watch if you are so inclined. Thank You. SELFIE QUEEN V1 She has a face that rivals Helen of Troy Her photos can’t be seen enough by internet boys She smiles, she winks, she laughs, and she pouts Guys on their devices eat their hearts out Chorus She’s the stuff that fuels passionate dreams She’s an internet Selfie Queen V2 How many likes can she get In comparison to younger nymphets? Photos of herself every hour of the day Builds her self-esteem in a glorified way Chorus She’s the stuff that fuels passionate dreams She’s an internet Selfie Queen Bridge She has lots of online friends She’s a big sensation She has lots of online friends Who like digital flirtation V3 She’s a viral thread, a must see meme Guys are left bursting at the seam Dozens of comments verify She’s the apple of the internet’s eye Chorus She’s the stuff that fuels passionate dreams She’s an internet Selfie Queen

    Demolition Baby

    I mentioned in another post that I was working on a lyric called Demolition baby and that it had been inspired by walking past a local inn that had just been demolished. Quite sad as it was an old building and had been a much loved establishment in years gone by. Anyone, it triggered an idea for a song lyric which I've then worked up a bit. In terms of the music to accompany it, I was thinking something in a Dogs D'Amour style. Appreciate that will mean little to most people here. They were a rock band from London in the late 80s/90s. Their singer, Tyla, was/is an alcoholic and not the world's greatest singer but I think he is a very underappreciated songwriter. (And also a great artist). Anyway, I could see a riff similar to their song 'Dog's hair' to accompany my lyric. Demolition baby (Intro) Good lord, they knocked down the old Inn last night Just bricks and broken dreams left at first light And as I watched the destruction You know, I thought of you baby. (Verse 1) We fell into dirty sheets with our jagged hearts In a bedsit in Tooting in nineteen something (Verse 2) You said you hated filthy cheats who slight of hand their cards And I listened as you glistened on a steamy summer's night (Bridge) I know that we were broken But the words that we spoke of Were soft and soothing to my heart, But it seems you were intent On seeing hate where love was meant And that guaranteed we'd be blown apart (Chorus) You're the demolition baby You rigged everything to fall The demolition baby Now there's nothing left at all (Verse 3) We lost our flirty ways almost from the start In a war zone of our making in nineteen something (Verse 4) You said you hated crystal dreams that shatter into shards But you sabotaged any plans that we had for love (Chorus) You're the demolition baby You rigged everything to fall The demolition baby Now there's nothing left at all (Chorus) You're the demolition baby You rigged everything to fall The demolition baby Now there's nothing left at all (Chorus) You're the demolition baby You rigged everything to fall The demolition baby Now there's nothing left at all Dynamite, TNT No point talkin', bout What might have been You're the demolition baby You're the demolition baby (Chorus) Yeah, you're the demolition baby You rigged everything to fall The demolition baby Now there's nothing left at all Boom!
  4. Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738) knew how to combine traditional Irish music with Italian Baroque that was the preferred choice of the high society at that time. The repetition of short motifs as well as the particular way of building tension reveal O'Carolan's knowledge of the leading styles in the Baroque era. His experiments with harp music influenced a whole new genre, as it were: the Celtic Classics. O’Carolan, who was the son of an iron founder, lost his sight to smallpox at the age of 18, and spent most of his life as a travelling harpist. However, he gained fame due to his gift of composing harp music and writing songs, mostly in Irish, with the exception of one English tune. The Celtic Baroque roots of 'Stairway to Heaven'

    Summertime Song

    Updated Version After working on this some more I’m not sure it’s useable. Summertime Song JOe V1 Kick it off with Memorial Day Remember those who gave so we can play Live it up so free it’s our way of life (meh) Friends fun family that sure is nice Ch I hope you like this summer time song I wrote it so everyone can sing along Turn it on when the sun comes up Chillin’ by the water or sippin’ from a cup I hope you like this summer time song I wrote it so everyone can dance along Turn it up when the sun goes down Laughin’ by a fire or cruisin’ round town (Too generic?) V2 Celebrate Independence Day Fourth of July America’s birthday Fireworks up high light the sky so bright (meh) Friends fun family that sure is nice Ch I hope you like the summertime song I wrote it so everyone can sing along Turn it on when the sun comes up Chillin’ by the water or sippin’ from a cup I hope you like this summertime song I wrote it so everyone can sing along Turn it up when the sun goes down Laughin’ by a fire or cruisin’ round town Br End it off on a Labor Day Summertime is fun can we make it stay Party on in the USA kickin’ back on a holiday (meh) Chorus

    Abandoned

    Pretty rough guitar instrumental. I'm not really sure where I want to go with this, or how to get there. Obviously needs a bass line; the only bassist I've been able to get together with couldn't seem to do much more with it than hit root notes, so I'm probably going to end up finding a cheap bass somewhere and doing my own (something that's a distinct line of its own, ala John Paul Jones or James Dewar). I'm also thinking of a keyboard part, kind of an ambience-type thing, like Pink Floyd (intro to Shine On You Crazy Diamond), with a pedal A in the little bridge thing. The big question to me is, does this song lend itself to a vocal melody? I'm not sure; it seems to me to be structured more around a feel hopefully conveyed by the opening and closing voice fx, and I don't know that vocals wouldn't be more of an intrusion than anything else. But, of course, I'm open to ideas. The lead lines are also something I'm working on polishing up a bit. Anyway, all feedback appreciated. Faron Abandoned, on SoundCloud ETA- just listened to the link, and I didn't realize how muddy that version sounds. I'd have preferred to link to my BandMix version, but couldn't get that link to work properly. I should also mention that I've been having issues with hearing loss for the last few years (seems to run in my family, and I am 61, after all), so what I hear and what everyone else does may be two completely different things.

    Life goes south

    A lyric about mistakes you made in your past eventually catching up on you. Not entirely happy with verse 3 - think it probably needs to be improved. Life goes south (Verse 1) Bobby was a corporate rocker Made his first couple million Had some more in the locker, Sitting in his living room Thinking 'bout buying a copter, When Lesley-Ann burst in Brandishing a gun and sayin' "Hope you got a good doctor!" (Chorus) Life goes south so fast Mistakes you made in your past Now snap back at you Like a rubber band (Verse 2) Tilly was a hard working mother Much loved by all her children Especially her only daughter, Standing by the telephone Thinking of all the things she'd taught her, As the child's biological Laughs from the other end And screams that he's got her. (Chorus) Life goes south so fast Mistakes you made in your past Now snap back at you Like a rubber band (Bridge) Life looks picture book perfect If you don't look under the surface To the naked eye Things are fine, fine, fine Cos you can't see all the short circuits (Verse 3) Mildred was a straight A student Destined for the top, hand-picked By city firm Proctor and Nugent, Lying in a drunk stupor Looking like a crazy mutant, As the biggest case of her life Played to a packed house, media scrum Looked like she was playing truant (Chorus) Life goes south so fast Life goes south so fast Mistakes you made in your past Now snap back at you Like a rubber band!

    Kicking up mud

    I'm still catching up on posting lyrics that I wrote during the song collaboration contest. You'll notice more mentions of boots! I didn't send this one to Triffid, as we'd already chosen our song to work on, but I had fun writing it. I feel it could be a fun light-hearted rock or heavy rock song? Kicking up mud (Verse 1) Late one ev'ning I was walking back from town Felt like my head was on upside down Corner of my eye and I see this sight Girl strut strutting under pale moonlight (Chorus) She do the alligator stomp down by the swamp Kicking up mud Kicking up mud She got knee high boots that zip down the side Kicking up mud Kicking up mud (Post chorus) She's a wild girl See it in her eyes Late nights Cat fights Gets her prize (Verse 2) Guess that ev'ning I was feelin' kinda down Had just proved sorrows will not drown Don't know why I did it but I guess it felt right Kicked up my boots and shouted ‘well, alright!’ (Chorus) I did the alligator stomp down by the swamp Kicking up mud Kicking up mud I got big Doc Martens with half a mile of lace Kicking up mud Kicking up mud (Post chorus) She's a wild girl See it in her eyes Late nights Cat fights Gets her prize (Chorus) We do the alligator stomp down by the swamp Kicking up mud Kicking up mud She got knee high boots that zip down the side Kicking up mud Kicking up mud I got big Doc Martens with half a mile of lace Kicking up mud Kicking up mud The rain came but we didn’t care Flailing limbs up in the air The rain washed mud from her hair Found myself caught hard in her stare Kicking up mud Kicking up mud Kicking. Up. MUD!

    The Willow Tree

    Hey everyone! Here's a song I wrote a while ago called "The Willow Tree." Although all forms of feedback are appreciated, I am more focused on the musical side of things than the lyrical side. Thanks in advance! We were alone together, lying underneath the willow tree You told me you'd be leaving soon, but there were things you wanted to see So you took me to the cavern where we used to play as kids Writing on the walls, just sloppy scrawls, it was where we first hid You said "Never forget my name 'cause I'll be back" The streets are empty and deserted, now there's nothing to do or see Stuck on the wrong side of the moon, but it don't matter much to me When you were here, the town was booming, now it's all lonely and drab I have my calendar, I'm marking the days until you'll be back Heart to heart in the jungle We've come to meet our fate Eye to eye, side to side The hour's getting late I've been waiting decades now just to see the sun rise again I thought I might never make it out and then, here you came We were young, spending our days living insane Now we look back at everything we've done in vain And your soul keeps singing the blues But it's all over, there's nothing to lose Anymore

    Drink To Forget

    Hi All Here is a song lyric I am working on the past three months. I've got the song recorded instrumentally, just waiting to complete the lyrics. The song has a fast paced Foo Fighters (band) feel to it. Im maybe 95% done with this and have probably gone through at least 20 rewrites and basically the rewrites were designated on 3 lines which I'll point out. Again, its a work in progress, but am curious of opinions or reactions you may have about this lyric. Drink To Forget (J.Upham) (c) 2018 V1 Happy hour and I'm in a bad way Got the news that you're leaving me today Letting go is my only salvation This line took about 4 rewrites to get it where I wanted it. Any means to lessen the pain This line was at least 10 rewrites. This line is sung to an extended chord before it crashes into the chorus. Chorus: So I drink to Drink to Drink to forget Drink to Drink to Drink to forget I drink to forget all the things that you once meant to me V2 Yesterday I lived for tomorrow She was all that I needed in my world Victimized I fight through depression 6 rewrites/had this line written Victimized I deal with depression but it was harder to sing, there is something about the word "with" that is awkward to sing and I try to avoid that word at all costs Every time someone mentions her name This line is still pending. Even with the extended chord to fit the phrase it still phonetically trips me up abit. I like the content or meaning of the line, but the word "someone" singing wise at that faster tempo can disrupt the cadence. Repeat chorus solo repeat V1 Repeat chorus end

    Seeking Music for Documentary

    Hello, I am an independent filmmaker in Wisconsin. I created a documentary titled "99 Bottles Documentary" about the renaissance of microbreweries in Wisconsin. I am seeking music to finish the documentary. On the website for the project and the Facebook page I provided links to songs that I like. I am looking for songs that have an older feeling to them. Songs that have a sing a long at a bar feeling. Irish folk music is one example. Singers with a guitar is probably better than a full band of instruments. I recommend looking at the samples I have on my pages and please offer your suggestions. I am not a musician to be able to give you the best description. Does anyone have any songs that could work to be included in the documentary? Cheers, Jason http://www.99bottlesdocumentary.com/music/ https://www.facebook.com/99bottlesdocumentary/
  14. Here is my latest song. I finally decided to write a tune about our soldiers around the world. All crits and comments welcome. UPDATED MIX: 2/17/2018 Flames of battle are never far away Like some savage bird of prey Thoughts about my folks Vanish in the smoke The sound of taps echos in my brain I'll keep on fighting anyway The never ending war may rage I don't really have a say Don't want two coins to grace my eyes I'll stand my ground, push back the tide I'm coming home Silent memories fill the void In the endless noise of war I try to see your face But the picture fades to grey Hang on tight, ignore the pain I have to make it one more day Blood-stained hands fan the flames While my feet turn to clay Can't spare the time to find the line It's time to leave this all behind I'm coming home I'm coming home The never ending war may rage I don't really have a say Don't want two coins to grace my eyes I'll stand my ground, push back the tide Blood-stained hands fan the flames While my feet turn to clay Can't spare the time to find the line It's time to leave this all behind I'm coming home

    Mr Smith and Mr Wesson

    Some of you may recall I posted a lyric called 'Murder and Mayhem' quite recently. This lyric feels like it could be a cousin of that one. Comments welcome Mr Smith and Mr Wesson (Verse 1) I walked into the bank with Mr Smith and Mr Wesson I said I'd kindly be obliged if you would answer my question Have you got enough money to fill up this bag? If you need to file the payment you can mark it under ‘Swag’ (Verse 2) The dame behind the counter jumped up and said "Why yes sir! We can pay you in fifties or hundreds if you prefer?" This VIP service is as cute as cute can be Mr Smith and Mr Wesson sure open vaults for me (Chorus) Mr Smith And Mr Wesson Two fine outstanding gentlemen For making an impression (Verse 3) Some heavy in a uniform tried to block my way Mr Smith and Mr Wesson told him Not Today I walked out to the car, the missus perched at the wheel I didn't like her countenance but we had sworn a deal (Bridge) She said "What took you so long? You should have been here sooner!" And in her company I spied she had a Mr Luger Mr Smith and Mr Wesson Tried to teach her a lesson But Mr Luger had the same thought So here I am in this hospital ward (Chorus) Mr Smith And Mr Wesson Two fine outstanding gentlemen For making an impression (Chorus) Mr Smith And Mr Wesson Two fine outstanding gentlemen For making an impression F/X: Sounds of gunshots

    Just not over you

    Starts out with a piano and the singer for first 3 lines, then bring in full band, till the bridge when we drop back down to just piano and singer.. then everything back in till end. Thinking a Major sounding Pop punk power chords meets Summer of 69 Brian Adams kinda feel. Probably add an acoustic to give that vibe. Kinda what I am going after - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elTPMgkvWU4 - maybe around 150 BPM <verse 1> That summer was, the best of my life I wonder what my world would be like If you never moved away. Every sexy curve of you, is burned in my mind Every day with you, a memory of mine I'm longing for those warm summer days <chorus> If I could put my heartbeat in reverse Id go back in time an live another verse I'd trade all all my tomorrows Just to have one more day Cause I'm just not over you just not over you Cause I'm just not over you <Verse 2> Your parents dragged you away Said I was leading you astray We were never given a half a chance Remember down at the amusement park We rode the cyclone in the dark It spun your heart into mine Up on the Ferris wheel I rocked the car and made you squeal We were living on borrowed time <chorus> If I could put my heartbeat in reverse Id go back in time an live another verse I'd trade all all my tomorrows Just to have one more day Cause I'm just not over you just not over you Cause I'm just not over you <bridge> All the things I didn't get say before you went away You forgot that bear I won for you <chorus> If I could put my heartbeat in reverse Id go back in time an live another verse I'd trade all my tomorrows Just to have one more day Cause I'm just not over you just not over you Cause I'm just not over you

Concrete Canyon James L Kleinheksel © Copyright 2017 Moving like an apparition From above these dirty streets Give me room to make it through I won't accept defeat I will be the puppeteer Of everything forevermore You’re the lowly volunteer On the concrete canyon floor I don't need a helping hand I don't need any love Anyone who's in my way Is struck down from above Racing hellbound over the top Reveling in this blood and gore You just stand and wait in line On that concrete canyon floor Bridge You know it’s me with all the power It makes no difference what you do You're gonna be devoured Always knew I'd see the day When I'm always looking down Anyone who's in my way I push em to the ground Screaming like an eagle Always moving at full bore Follow me until you’re dead On that concrete canyon floor

    Once upon a time

    My January lyric contest entry. An interesting mix of scores received - one 1.5 and one 4 and then a lot around the 3 or 3.5 mark The background is that my brothers recently returned from a holiday to the United States which included a visit to the site of the Battle of Little Big Horn. They came back laden with merchandise which is fine but it did make me think what the cowboys from that era would make of the modern cowboy tourism industry? And the song sprang from that thought ... Once upon a time (Intro) Once upon a time the west was wild Every gringo knew the lingo of the gun and knife (Verse 1) But all the cowboys are buried underneath the ground In the desert you'll sometimes hear the sound Of hooves, rolling thunder From the herds that were run there The crack of the bullets fired into the sky. (Verse 2) Yeah, all the cowboys are buried underneath the sod They've long since found out if there is a God Now cars, rolling thunder From the tourists who come there The snap of cameras for a silver screen lie. (Chorus) Tell me how the west was won What was lost and what'll become Plaques upon walls Their portraits hanging in halls Kids twirling plastic guns Once upon a time Once upon a time (Bridge) (Spoken) Listen, this is how it really was... (Sung) I got dirt in my boots I got sunburn on my face, Getting paid a pittance It's the boss man who takes, All the money, all the glory Whilst I'm lame and saddle sore, Just saving a few coins So I can lay with some cheap whore. I ain't Billy the Kid Don't have a cool name, Live for forty years if I'm lucky With no chance of lasting fame. And if I stray from the narrow They'll hang me from up high, Till my legs stop a kickin' Under this bastard sky. (Chorus) Tell me how the west was won What was lost and what'll become Plaques upon walls Their portraits hanging in halls Kids twirling plastic guns Once upon a time Once upon a time (Verse 3 – repeat of verse 1) Yeah, all the cowboys are buried underneath the ground In the desert at night you'll sometimes hear the sound Of hooves, rolling thunder From the herds that were run there The crack of the bullets fired into the sky. (Outro) Once upon a time the west was wild Every gringo knew the lingo of the gun and knife

    The last of Us

    Still working on the music for this one but it should kinda have the feel of this song when done. Obviously not ripping anything off though. Still not 100% if the chorus repetition/background lyrics will stay as they are. There will be both, just need to get into the recording process before I can figure out what sound great. I look forward to your thoughts. Thanks! The last of Us <verse 1> I heard from a friend You've been sleeping around on me Is this really true? Is this fucking reality? <chorus> Cause this is the last time you're gonna step on my heart (step on my heart) I can't love you sometimes While you tear us apart (tear us apart) So tonight, will be the last, of us (the last of us) So tonight, will be the last, of us.. <verse 2> Been living in a fantasy When it comes to me and you I've tried to deny it But it’s turning out to be true <chorus> Cause this is the last time You're gonna step on my heart (step on my heart) I can't love you sometimes While you tear us apart (tear us apart) So tonight, will be the last, of us (the last of us) So tonight, will be the last, of us.. (the last of us) <verse 3> I know I'm too good for you And all my friends they agree It’s time to stop talking Stop talking about you and me <chorus> Cause this is the last time You're gonna step on my heart (step on my heart) I can't love you sometimes While you tear us apart (tear us apart) So tonight, will be the last, of us (the last of us) So tonight, will be the last, of us (the last of us) So tonight, will be the last, of us..

    Hey folks, here is my latest. Have at it! Look at me Can't you see I'm always in a hurry I don't know where I find time to be O C D Always harder than it has to be All tangled up in wasted time Rushing forward, never check my speed I saw the stop sign as I flew on by Look at me Can't you see Forgot my medication I don't know where I find time to be O C D Mad encounters of the third degree I fear I might just lose my mind My obsession put a tax on me Threw out a dollar so I could keep the dime Look at me Can't you see Plagued by indecision I don't know where I find time to be O C D

    Good

    Hey folks, here's a song (for the open contest) based on awful things I saw in the news last year. It's told from the vantage point of the bad guy, who, as a metaphor for humanity, (I hope) starts to have a change of heart and (eventually) asks "What good will I do today?" "Good" Verse 1: I’m not tryin’ to be self righteous. I just can’t help it. I was born that way. Verse 2: Gonna grease my treads with your hot-dog cart! And ice the cake with my apathy. Pre-Chorus (or maybe a chorus??): I only give blood to put it on Facebook! even if I’m keeping it for myself. Maybe I need a revolution! Just to get my conscience off the shelf... Chorus (1&2): What good will I do today? Can I change the atmosphere of the world in a better way? Hey! Hey! Verse 3: Gonna watch a man drown. It’s gonna go viral. Put an epitaph down with a poignant ... LOL Verse 4: Got a snake in a can. Watch out he bite! Pretty sure this ain’t legal. Pretty sure this ain’t right. Bridge: Why can’t we have more Passion Compassion? (repeat several ~3x) Chorus (3): What good will I do today? I won’t sit like an emperor on the throne of yesterday . Hey! Hey!
