Listen Listen to the Radio
on: September 19, 2020, 00:00:26

Collaborative ode to the Radio, with The Plugs from Venezuela and @Pleudoniem 

Listen listen to the radio
Got a way, a way to fall
Oh Tune, it's a gentle thing


I turn my dials on the
FM tonight
Direct my antenna
So it's just about all right


Listen listen to the radio
Tune into our frequency
Oh Tune, it's a gentle thing
Tune into our frequency

I scan the horizon
at the edge of the earth
All things will pass
Their orbit around the curve

Listen listen to the radio
Got a way, a way to fall
Oh Tune, it's a gentle thing

Pasadena, aha
Can you hear me now?
I got your message,
somewhere, somehow

Tune into our frequency
Oh Tune, it's a gentle thing

Thanks @Dutchbeat - very nice to know you had a favourable listen
here is the song also on Soundcloud
https://soundcloud.com/pure-moon/listen-to-the-radio
with translations in Spanish & Chinese - hopefully we can attract an international audience.

the song idea started quite concidentally: Regulo had an isolated drumtrac-recorindg when he played along Honky Tonk Woman by The Rollig Stones. It propmpted me to add new guitar parts. Then we got @Pleudoniem  on board for bass and organ - we we found out that the Stones did not stick to steady BPM. So we got Regulo to record a new drumtrack, on a metronome of 120 BPM. From that we built it up - until it was time to get some lyrics. The inspiration came from Carolyn Burnnette's Kentycky barefoot Radio Station.

I enjoyed everything about this- the inspiration, sweetly nostalgic lyrics, charming melody and eclectic arrangement.
I don`t know who The Plugs are; more,please :dance: :dance:
This just might be my favourite @oorlab  song so far. Video is fun too.

Robert

Love it!!!
The idea, the build up, the performance. Goes to show that a mix is definitely a personal thing.
I like it all a lot. I'll be back for another spin. @Pleudoniem @oorlab
Kind regards< Gus

Hola @oorlab

I liked the sound of the instruments, the style, I think it suits you well, it is a very pleasant song to hear.
I really liked this
"I scan the horizon
at the edge of the earth
All things will pass
Their orbit around the curve"
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

Cheers @Mora Amaro La Loba  - glad you pointed that line out, in hindsight I also like the double meaning (coincidence) of all things must pas - must pass their orbit...
Many thanks @Mo @LePlongeur @robertkc for commenting - will pas it on to the drummer Regulo  in Venezuela.
