Goner Message Board / ???? / DEMO MY DEMO--fun for the whole family
Posted: Aug 23, 2008 5:28 pm
 
in my spare time i invented what could become a colossal goner game.

many of us have a few embarrassments buried deep that could have been classics. i say, demo my demo--let a goner give your song the chance at life you could not.

Rules, as i'd write them:

1. song's got to be BAD--this isn't a stab at stardom!
2. song can not have been released
3. it can't be rocket science to figure it out (arman, that means nothing from your Bastro phase!)
4. lyrics must be provided
5. you've got to make it better, not worse

someone has to put up an mp3 link and someone else has to take it and remake it. and post it back up.

looking hard for laughs, i mined my charred battlefields and found a gem. RIP OFF! I was thinking Loverboy, Lizzy--men who wear sequins, tousled hair, tasseled headbands, chins jut out, looking you right in the eye. and they come together at the microphone for the backups! but, alas, the reality of the recorded song was much different.


anyway, i can't go first. anyone have the guts to put up?

DAMN! My shoebox of 4-track-masters horribleness is 8,000 miles away.

horribleness = assured fun times.

why do i feel like i just read about this same thing on terminal boredom?

TB? no way, who took my idea? did they post the before and after? i've got something brewing behind the scenes and it will be up.

i'm pretty sure i read almost the exact same thing about a week ago over there from some dude. i was looking for the thread but i can't find it now.

The Barbaras covered a Conner Sewer / Staags gem that we never released.

They did it sooooooo much better.

Come to think of it, they might have done that song when Karl was originally in the band; I'll have to ask.

Was it that song "Gay"?

That song is pretty great.

"Only One".

But "Gay" is great.

You'd have to have HUGE balls to do this. Not the cover thing... but the initial post.

I'll post something... only if Hubble Bubble will cover.

If I can find the wav I recorded sitting in my car with an acoustic guitar, singing like I thought I had the blues, outside a warehouse somewhere near Raines and Mendenhall in 2000 then you're welcome to it.

D A C G, heartfelt song about drag racing, dying before your kid is born

RULE #4: lyrics must be provided.

and, stands, you might have to provide a strum chart for yours!



let the healing begin...RIP OFF!

(verse)
On the phone you said I was a prophet
You said Jackie's #1
I found my wings, my picks and strings
I'm on the run, headed for the bridge

(chorus)
It's such a rip off, such a rip off, baby
It's such a rip off, such a rip off, baby
It's such a rip off, such a rip off
That you go out for coffee, and I go out for tea
That's what's wrong with you and me
That's what's wrong with you and me
Rip off, yeah!

(verse)
I got your number
You got my number, baby
I found my wings, my picks and strings
I'm on the run, headed for the bridge

(chorus)
It's such a rip off, such a rip off, baby
It's such a rip off, such a rip off, baby
It's such a rip off, such a rip off
That you go out for coffee, and I go out for tea
That's what's wrong with you and me
That's what's wrong with you and me
Rip off, yeah!

(coda)
(repeat)
(fade out)
