Monaco Music Mondays

Hey, lookie here.  I set a goal and followed through.  How 'bout that!

As you know, I was pet sitting at Cheryl's all week.  I spent that time researching and preparing.  How?  I found a simple drum machine simulator online.  Well, simple to most musician-folk.  Not-so-simple for this musician-folk.  What took a week to compile, should've taken less than an hour.  No worries.  Just learning.

I found out I need to update some sound card thingy because when I record over tracks and play them back, they are off sync.  I have to manually line them up with the other tracks.  So, that took more time than necessary.

I'm also beginning to understand the need for a vocal compressor.  In time.

But hey, this is kinda fun.

You'll see I've added information for donations on my sidebar.  One reader and music supporter made the suggestion.  Since I'm offering up demos of my music for free download, he thought there should be an option to make a donation.  That way, those who want to donate something, can.  Brilliant.  Makes sense to me.  But don't feel obligated.  You are welcome to download my music for free.  Just remember to play it loud, and tell everyone where you got it. ;)

Okay, on with it...

This week's installment of Monaco Music Mondays comes to us circa 1998.  A song of angst and a cycle of unrequited lust.  Timing may be off, but do the feelings really go away?

 

THE MATTER [click to listen]

There once was a time I could rely on me
Without you living inside all my secret fantasies
I wonder what happened to harmless fornication
I'm not alone, am I alone in this situation
 
What do you suggest I do in this thunder and lightening storm
Is it my fault timing's off and now I'm ready to perform
You're the one who put the bug in my ear to begin with
You're too busy now, and there's no one left to sin with
 
Don't tell me
I don't wanna hear it
Save it
For when we get
Down to the heart of The Matter
Nothing you can hide
Down at the heart of The Matter
So what's The Matter
 
What gives you the right to dominate my nights
Standing naked at my doorstep as we passionately fight
I wake up drowning in a pool of my own sweat
With a pillow in my arms but I refuse to give up yet
 
Don't tell me
I don't wanna hear it
Save it
For when we get
Down to the heart of The Matter
Nothing you can hide
Down at the heart of The Matter
So what's The Matter
 
Don't tell me you can't feel it
You can't deny it anymore
I see it in your eyes, I saw it in your eyes
When you came crashing through my door, my door
 
Nothing you can hide
Down at the heart of The Matter
So what's The Matter
What's The Matter
Oh, what does it Matter

Hey, I'm ALL about angst and unrequited lust! Love that stuff. And as you already know, I love what you're doing here ... you're putting lots of hard work into making this happen, you're learning, you're sharing. It's all good. Better than good. I'm just thrilled for you!

I love being able to read the words as the song goes along. It's especially neat when the words are deepish like yours are. Magical!

You can save a lot of Drum Machine money by going to Compton and hiring one of those Human Beat Box guys- unless Bush quadruples the price of a 40 oz. malt liqour, too.
