Hi, friends !

Have been occupied with singing covers lately
and as one or two projects are on hold
I decided to redo one of my songs from the
1992 record ! I am not particularly green, but
somehow the lyrics just popped up back then ?

SHE GOES AROUND

http://app.box.com/s/c05tpkmafx1hise1s5wb

Recorded on mixcraft 6.
Style: BEACHCAR 60:s surf shuffle rock
Instruments:
Bass 34 Finger El Bass
Piano 6 El piano
Drums Realdrums Country Shuffle
Guitar 26 AC guitar
Strings GM2 54/1 Humming
Soloist 51 Synth Strings 1

SHE GOES AROUND (by Dani)
This world could be a better place
if we only could slow down the pace
in other case the human race
will be loosin´it´s face in a shameful disgrace

we have to think about a future
though we live here today
takin´care of Mother Nature
in a much better way
we have to think about tomorrow
but we won´t be afraid
´cause the earth´s still goin´around
she´ll go anyway

she goes around
oh, she goes around
she goes around oooh, like a merry go round

She has been spinnin´´round for years
maybe millions or billions of years
but on Her travel thru the space
she has never before been so loaded with waste

we have to think about a future
though we live here today
takin´care of Mother Nature
in a much better way
we have to think about tomorrow
but we won´t be afraid
´cause the earth´s still goin´around
she´ll go anyway
She goes around
oh, she goes around
she goes around oooh, like a merry go round

solo

The human being tries to change
everything that comes up within range
It´s good to know how much we try
Mother nature keep holding her course
in the sky

we have to think about a future
though we live here today
takin´care of Mother Nature
in a much better way
we have to think about tomorrow
but we won´t be afraid
´cause the earth´s still goin´around
she´ll go anyway
She goes around
oh, she goes around
she goes around oooh, like a merry go round

Dan, I really like this. It has a blend of jazz chords in the verse and a Beach Boy style chorus. Loved it. Super job on your vocal and the harmonies. Plus the mix is really good.

Nice Dani

Very sensitive lyrics, makes you stop and think. Interesting chord progressions - not surprising from you.

The style works perfectly. Enjoyed the break also.

Great job. Thanks for sharing this with us

Cheers!

Trevor

Now that is an excellent description!! Cool chords and harmonies. Very inventive production all the way.

And we are particularly green so the lyric worked wonderfully for us. I call Janice "Earth Mama" what with her recycling, etc.

Thanks for the chance to hear this one!

Hi, Alyn

Thank you so much for your most kind
words !:)) This one was from 1992
and I do not think that the world
has improved too much since then ?
I really don´t remember what on
earth got me to write these lyrics
but something must have been driving me ?


Cheers
Dani

Hi, Janice (Earth Mama) and Bud !


You know, in a way
I think we are all green
at least to some extent !
We do not like the sensitive
nature of ours to be devastated !
Thank you both for your kind
comments and may Mama Nature
really be nice to you !:))

Cheers
Dani
