Intoxicatie

Yet another dream song... I had a dream where my colleagues were sitting at the table, drinking, tapping the table and singing a song - I remembered the first words and the chorus melody when I woke up, although I had to modify the melody a little because it sounded bit too much like Paloma Blanca, a hit in Europe in the 70's. Hopefully the resemblance is not that obvious anymore. Originally the lyrics were in Finnish, but when translating, I came up with that funny song title when I couldn't rhyme 'lady' properly. And then I realized I could use 'strong' female names in the verses smile I'm sure I could develop the story even further but it is time to give it a rest now and showcase it to you. I hope you enjoy my humor smile All comments welcome!

Naturally, BIAB provided excellent rock instruments for the backing band. The band is based on the style _FURIOUS.STY:

Lyrics:

Sinking booze with cheerful feeling
with both hands, surely isn't bland
no lady like Intoxicatie
will ever be my thrill.

I had heard enough
all her nagging all her cheating
no mental uplifting
no gratitude no greeting
Sherry was a savage
no balm after beating
luckily a timeless potion
gracefully treating.

Sinking booze...

Margarita left me
she had no sense of humor
came autumn then winter
her comeback still a rumor
longing is too painful
a tearshedding tumor
but I have found a healer, I'm a
homebrew consumer.

I can feel a tender kissing on my lips
my heart beats fast for the drought ending sips.

Sinking booze...

I have missed a touch
for too long I've been impatient
but Brandy won't tell when
she grants the next sensation
mutual and intimate
brush in her basement
sentiment is scorching but a
shot's the replacement.

I can feel the warmness gushing in my blood
the fire of love in the overwhelming flood.

I can feel the spirits tingle in my loins
the elixir of gods seeks the stream of life to join.

----------------

Man, you should keep pen, paper and BiaB ready while you sleep, Janne.
"Sherry was a savage

This is so much fun. And so much funny. Love your sense of humor and the way you bring it in to play. Right from the intoxicating rhythm to the development of the melody and instrumentation. Then you add all the special touches including the "bottle emptying sound." Very creative!

Thanks Marty for your kind and fun comment smile I'm really glad you had also sense of humor to understand my ideas laugh I hope the next BIAB feature will be recognizing chords directly from brain signals, so that the chord sequence has already been recorded when I wake up wink

Janne,
First of all, very cool and positive tune! Secondly, I do not know what you changed, but your vocals are very clear! Remember whatever the settings you used smile Brave choice of instruments + FX and clever composition. Love the title. Listens well.
Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Love it, Janne!

Your title reminded me of the title of an album by Polish jazz vocalist Anna Maria Jopek "Upojenie". Wikipedia translated it as "rapture", but I had a Polish woman translate it for me as "intoxicated with you". BTW, Upojenie was the album she made with Pat Metheny.

Two words come to mind:

FUN and CLEVER

Your vocals and the talkbox guitar nailed the fun vibe.

The mix is excellent...great soundstage on the monitors.

Regarding that BiaB wish you have ... well, we already have Moderna vax RNA crawling around our brains so we might as well have a chord creator also smile

Enjoyed it!

Hi Janne,

A very good one!
I had to read the lyrics a couple of times and then the dime dropped.
Very funny story, in spite of the experience with Margarita...

The rhythmic section is very good and sounds bright and addictive.
And you made good use of that swampy vocal box.

also, as misha and Ray wrote; the vocals are much brighter than in yur previous songs.
Although they were very nice too.

Cheers,
Hans

Thanks Mario for your very uplifting words and the thumbs smile I considered using vocoder in my vocal track, but I thought it would just make my vocals more difficult to understand. But it was fun to find that talkbox RT guitar, it fit nicely with the not-so-sober mood of the song smile

You have some of the most clever mixes around... Great song - love the tracks and the creative way you used that loop.

Nicely done!

Thanks Misha for your kind and positive comment smile Glad you liked the title also smile Actually, I didn't change anything in my vocal effecting (I use the vocal strip effect of Cakewalk, except my previous song where I used Nectar). But maybe I sang louder and fixed problems with Melodyne better, so I didn't have to bury my mistakes in the mix. I also used less reverb on the whole song, that could have had an impact.

Very clever and interesting song.

Excellent use of effects and sounds to go along with your always interesting chord progressions.

Very well done all round.

Janne,

excellent job building that backtrack! The drums sound extra good on this (I've used that same set myself before). Overall sound is great. The chord structure and melody are super! Great job! Thanks, Torrey
