I was sitting this one out, except for my fun collab with @Dutchbeat as Just Cookin'. But at the last minute I had an idea. This is kind of a collaboration with @MichaelA ....even though he doesn't know that. I wanted to do something fun so I channeled his quirky side.  ;)

This tune is another one about a relationship. It is more about a love/hate thing than a pure misunderstanding but then that, in itself, is a bit of a misunderstanding. There is no VST in here since I am not a VST studio but I offer it up anyway for your review and entertainment.  :)

This Is Why I Scream
https://soundcloud.com/leonardscaper/this-is-why-i-scream

Please go away
You're no good for me
All that sugar
And sweet cream
Wait don't go
Don't you see
It's just a misunderstanding
I need you to leave
To set me free
But here you are
Still stuck in my dreams
This is why I scream

I love you too much
I just can't stop
Two big scoops
With a cherry on top
But you make my buttons all pop
We need an understanding
Please just go
Make this end
Wait I know
We'll just do weekends
This is why
This is why
This is why I scream

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS
I wish I had more pride
Instead
I'll take a walk on the wild side
This is why I scream

I salivate
And lick my lips
Then fill my bowl
With chocolate chip
But then it goes
Right to my hips
We need an understanding
Sometimes I'm strong
But most times I slip
I need you gone
But not just yet
This is why I scream

I scream
You scream
We all scream
You scream
They scream
For ice cream
So you think you're strong
Well let's find out
Here's s nice bowl of pistachio nut
Do we have a misunderstanding

CHORUS
I wish I had more pride
Instead
I'll take a walk on the wild side
This is why I scream

 ;D

Lovely song, lovely solo half way, whatís there not to like?
Oh, now I know. The VST is sorely missed.
In about two weeks time, I Will have much more time and already I promised myself to Find out. When I fully understand it I Still canít use it. But then I understand what I canít use.

Before even starting I am already convinced: if @Leonard Scaper can make fine sounding (terrific sounding) recordings without the VST voodoo, do I want it?

Itís going to be Very dificult again to sort out the winners.
And good luck to you L., with your entry.
Kind regards, Gus

Ps and on soundcloud ???

Aha @Leonard Scaper I see you have come over to the Quirky Side, a world with so very few minor chords, lots of puns and joyful solo interludes.  ;D A big surprise, but a very nice one too as the fun you had putting this together definitely comes across in the performance.

Thing is, I started with just one quirky song once, and now I cannot escape the damn things. As all the minor chords have been kidnapped by you and the likes of @robertkc and @Zedd!

Anyway, you have done a creative and entertaining job with this, something that definitely suits the Challenge theme. Expect a call from Ben &  Jerry's ad agency any day now!  ;D  :ok:

Good on you for venturing out of the box, and succeeding !
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

@LePlongeur ....glad you like this one, Gus. If that VST had been on this tune it would have been the first VST ever for Lenny.  ;)

@MichaelA ......yes, I had fun with this one. Much of that is because I had very little time so I just went with a stream of consciousness. I was writing the lyrics as I was recording them.   :)

I'll look for that call from Ben and Jerry. They may remember me as I was one of the first in line back in 1978 when they opened in Burlington, VT.

Erm...doesn't VST stand for Vanilla, Strawberry and Tangerine flavour in Ice Cream world? So I would say you have plenty of VST in your song @Leonard Scaper:ok: You probably have tasted all the flavours too if you started in 1978, I am quite jealous!  :D

Well @Leonard Scaper  Ö I think we just found the song that we want to do for this year's annual Kitchen Cover Challenge!!!!!!  :D

Awesome!

I personally can live without ice cream but Melissa is the ultimate ice cream connoisseurs .... people wonder how she eats ice cream everyday but looks the way she does .... she skips meals, she excercises like crazy .... for the one sole purpose of ice cream consumption. The good stuff. An entire collection of high quality brands and flavors - the way some of us are with fine wine.

Right ... I guess I was supposed to comment on your song.  ::)  :D  I already forgot it. I was mesmerized by the lyrics! I'll go back and listen a few more times!  :D

Nice work! Good show!

@Marcus Nalgaber .....I appreciate that about my voice. I have never been much of a singer, which is not a good thing when you have songs to sing, right? So years ago I just decided to sing anyway.  ;)

@Bill from November Sound .....I love it!!!! Melissa will sing this song with sincere feeling!!! I have mastered my domain these days when it comes to ice cream, but there was a time when Ben and Jerry were my two best friends on the planet.

Vermont!

Ben & Jerry's Factory.

That's where we can meet for an Eastern US kitchen summit. I'll have the advantage Ö. you'll be like superman in a kryptonite museum.  :lol:
All the US kitcheners leave 50 lbs heavier Ö.  :D

btw - I love that " only on weekends" line. It's perfect!  :yes:

@Bill from November Sound ......the B&J factory is right in my old stompin' grounds. Glad you picked up on that line....I threw that whole part in during the vocal tracking session and I loved it.   ;D

@Mora Amaro La Loba .....thanks for checking this one out. I appreciate that about the instrumental.
