You're Evil

Midnight’s gone and left us and I’m sneaking around

I really got no kind of business being on this side of town

On Off on with the bedroom light

The signal that your man is gone

You’re Evil Gonna make a fool outa me

Pure Evil won’t you set me free


Waiting by the front door as i step inside

I must be some kind of crazy to be messin with another man’s wife

It’s just so overwhelming

The way that you pull me in

You’re Evil Gonna make a fool outa me

Pure Evil won’t you set me free

Chorus

My sense of guilt is going to eat me up
I know what I’ve done aint right

it just doesn’t seem to bother you much

Sneaking round every night


The sun goes down as i race uptown

I can’t get you off of my mind

Once again I’m lyin to myself

Sayin this is gonna be the last time

So give me one last kiss
make it simple as that

You’re Evil Gonna make a fool outa me

Pure Evil won’t you set me free

Hi Tom,

That's a good old heavy rock song. Professionally arranged.
We were wondering.... did you happen to use any distortion-like plug ins on your vocal(nice rough edge on the vocal) or was it recorded clean?

Regards,
R & AM

+1 that ascending riff. Yeah. And the repeated riff/theme interjected in the choruses. Great guitar work that is up front and really supports the tune well.

Tom,

PHENONMENAL opening! The combination of the drums with the signature lick just hit ya smack in the face and say "Listen up! Sometime cool is happening here!"

And those drums!!! THE BEST I've ever heard on the forum. Exactly what a pop/rock/country song needs. Never thought to use that drums set (since I don't do blues), but it is EXACTLY the sound I've been looking for. That leathery snare and a kick to match and the hi-hats staying in the background where they belong (IMO). Did you process those with Alloy? Anything else. Gotta know!

An excellent rock/pop lyric.
"On Off on with the bedroom light
The signal that your man is gone". NICE!!! (especially the "on off on"). great rhyming throughout.

And the lyric has a tremendous cadence to it. Something that many songwriters neglect - or don't get... again... Nice!

The lead grabs your attention...then settles in and carries you on..

The vocal is well done, too (I was wondering were the chick singers where at one point, though...)

You just keep moving that bar higher with each song.

This is so very good!

floyd

Tommy,

I've been out for some while, and boy I'm sure glad I was able to get back and hear this! Great production, and your guitar playing and vocals just really work on this one! Really enjoyed it.

What can I say Tom-it`s another great tune, performed beautifully done!! I really like the bluesy lyrical vibe and the vocal is masterfully delivered (starting to rival your guitar work). The lyrical theme reminds me a bit of the tune HOMEWRECKER by Nick Lowe. Great stuff, as always! Take care. Greg

Good country rock!

Requires some sound balancing to remove some of the distortion or maybe that was intentional.

R& AM, I am impressed that you were able to pick out the effect. It was recorded clean but probably a little hot and I used a Nectar2 plug in preset Tight Soul. It has compression and Saturation which is like distortion. Thanks for the kind words. Tom

Alyn, Steal away. The guys in my former band were split on that lick. Half of them would say what the hell is wrong with you! Don't ever play that again! The other half would say that was the coolest thing I ever heard. Thanks for bringing attention to it. Tom

Patrick, Those were my two favorite parts of this song. I must have been thinking of Jimmy Page on the chorus riff. Thanks for the comments. I appreciate your input. Tom

Herb, I love Fogarty. Thanks to you and Richard for bringing that to my attention. I never thought of it. But now that you mention it...... Tom

floyd, I always look forward to your comments. That snare is the Yogi Berra catcher's mitt sound. Then when you add the Alloy preset Roomy Drums it becomes - in Yankee Stadium. Thanks for all the nice things you've said about this one. Now my Yankees cap might be a tight fit. Tom

Man, I wait just two days to offer some comments and everybody has already exhausted the superlatives. So, to heck with it, I'll just be redundant!

- cool write and vocal (floyd pointed out the very cool line)
- stellar rock mix -- pro all the way to my ears
- you are the Izotope poster boy

The song is full of "great grit" from the vocals to the guitars. Just enough to put that edge on it yet still allow everything in the mix to still shine. Hard to do -- I know cause, lordy know, I try to understand the techniques behind it. Easy to take for granted and listen to. Putting it all together is another thing.

Masterful!

I assume you got my meaning despite all the typos...

You can't kid me - that ain't no Yankees cap!
