Don't know what to call this exactly, but sounds really fun to me...

Thanks for your feedback in advance!

The style is

_ISLANDF.STY

This realtrack is used throughout. The only enhancement is delay and panning on guitar.

Really nice mix on this - good vocal interesting reggae funky rock feel.
Nice dynamics when drums & bass carry the song.

Thanks for listening! Thought I might have the bass too up front on the verse where the bass and drum carry it. Dusty is GREAT on vocals. Here are the lyrics:

Sunday morning, come
The coffee and the rum
The kettle and the fireplace
Noontime is a good time
The sun is a lemon-lime
The fruit tree fell from grace

Tomorrow is a Monday
Today is a fun day
Yesterday’s already passed
The months of the year
Are already here
And the weekends really don’t last

Tuesday, come to dinner
Betting on a winner
Finish first or finish third
Give the dinner roll
To the General
And make sure the butter is stirred

Wednesday, come to fasting
Eternal, everlasting
The ending is truly mine
It’s not really food
Unless it’s really good
So bring a bottle of cheap, cheap wine

Thursday, if you get here
Go out on the far pier
You’ll find a bucket of fish
The first one is the last one
Don’t let it die none
But make yourself one last wish

Friday, I’m still hoping
To win in the jump-roping
Even if I die before I do
Whisper a sweet tune
Somethin’ ‘bout a full moon
It doesn’t even have to be true

Saturday, I left you
Left-over hot stew
The seventh is always the best
Even our God
Spares His rod
For His seventh day of rest

Thanks again for the feedback! Very cool how a very basic musical idea, with great vocals AND BiaB, can sustain interest through a 3 minute song. I don't try to over-analyze this stuff though. To me, it just SOUNDS great, especially with headphones...

Never knew how badly I wanted to hear reggae and funk mixed together... "Fun" is definitely what I'd call it! The panned guitar is really good, and contrasts super nicely with that huge snare right in the middle. Great job!

Thanks again for all the kind comments. My wife starts dancing when she hears it, which is kind of fun, but not in an Elaine Benes way. smile

More than funk. A very interesting funk, complete with unique delivery. Reggae and Funk fusion.

Good one.
