nice atmosphere


This recording was finished on 2004 sep 12 sun. This is an old song that was brought back by request.  It never got a good recording, so I redid it.  I'm not saying this is now a good recording, but I know for sure it's better than the old ones!

history:

Written in 1997 at age 21 or 22. That might explain the themes: cars, aliens, conspiracies, petulance...

That means this version was seven years in the making. The first recording was made in 1997 dec. In addition to being a really poor recording, there were also a lot of problems with the composition. I tried off and on to fix those problems and recorded another version in 2000, but didn't like that one either. While in Gabon, I got most of the problems fixed. I decided in 2004 to re-record it, which forced me to fix all the details. Some of the lyrics are dumb, but I left them as is, like a little time capsule from 1997. The piano part is new.

lyrics:

There's my car, my Galaxie,
My blue convertible, I drive it all over.
And speaking of Galaxies, I kinda like this one,
It's milky, the stars are out, it's got a nice atmosphere,
But I'm tired of Earth, and I want to get out of here...

And it reminds me of when I lived on Venus,
It was nice there, and balmy, I lived in a space dome,
With a gorgeous Venutian, we shared all the food bills,
And the atmosphere's not as toxic as you might think...

Endless days and steamy, endless nights
Mostly it's foggy, but once in a while,
The stars come out and there's strange constellations,
I look up, and notice,
Earth is the brightest thing in the sky...

I kinda liked it, it was nice...
I'm all right, I'm doing fine...

Except for the obvious lack of people,
It's just me and Venutians, we have lots of parties,
There's bean dip, and corn chips, and plenty of Kool-Aid,
And the atmosphere's not as toxic as you've been led to believe,
By the scientists, they want it all for themselves,
As a refuge, escape from, the plague they created,

And it's awful, I hate it, I want to go back to Earth,
It's awful, I hate it, I want to go back to Earth,
It's awful, I hate it, I want to go back to Earth,
It's awful, I hate it, I want to go back,

And then I wake up, and find out, it's all been made up,
No, I wake up and I'm just back on Earth,
And I would kill for, no die for, a rocket to Venus,
And the airfare's not expensive like you might think...

And it's awful, I hate it, I want to go back to Venus,
It's awful, I hate it, I want to go back to Earth,
It's awful, I hate it, I want to go back to Venus,
It's awful, I hate it, I want to go back,


The End.
