Satellite Debris

hand me up those skyhooks
with an I-link I can finish the deck
so glad we saved vacation credits
for the super suction space magnet

we`ll build a lighthouse island
an island of space weapon junk
scour the Exosphere static
on our rocket renovation treasure hunt

come come with me
out past the periphery
little darling its almost free
we`ll make a mansion
a mansion from satellite debris

sitting on our Sputnik sofa
hand crank the revelation
they`re playing Memories of the Future
on Fallout Radio there`s one station

such a waste of mind
to wonder how all this crap got here
close the galaxy blind
have a beautiful Ballistic craft beer

come come with me
out past the periphery
little darling its almost free
we`ll make a mansion
a mansion from satellite debris

Fun and quirky space song and creatively quirky video. Enjoyed it.


Some favourite Waoist Adages:
#1: Play on the Way.
#17: Ask not for whom the flower blooms, it blooms for you.
#69: Bring consciousness to it.
#74: On the road to effortlessness, effort must be made.
#105: Be Love Now, the rest will come on its own.

I haven't heard anyone reference skyhooks in years! laugh

Cool write, the guitar solo fits perfectly with the quirky style.

Nice outro, too!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Scott / Robert,

Loved it! Great song. Excellent vocals, guitar and production. It has a hint of early Bowie - very cool!

Another Spirit Level winner!

Hey Ya'll

As I said on Soundcloud, cool and quirky in the best of ways! A creative and innovative lyric. Somewhere down the road, this would almost certainly be a problem.

My favorite couplet:
They're playing Memories of the Future
on Fallout Radio there`s one station

I like that Robert's vocal is a little more out front than usual - I think that gives the song more "character" and validity, noting the message.

Scott, your guitar lead is spot on! Nicely done.

Nicely done, folks! Happy New Year!\

Very cool and original as per usual, Robert and Scott!

Good lyric (love the "have a beautiful Ballistic craft beer" line wink ) and vocal, and just the perfect guitar part, Scott. Loved the outro!

Unique, quirky, unconventional, space, and above all cool. Nice upfront vocal and I especially liked the slide guitar. The outro had the extra sauce. Fun listen,Tom

Plush opening, and I like when it cleared to bring in that cool guitar and Robert's vocal. Excellent and unique lyrics. Love your mind, Robert. Scott, your taste on what to play and your ability of technique in playing it is always so professional and creative. That interlude at near 2:00 was kinda cool how it was panned for the last 2 measures. Cool AI vidz, too. "A mansion from satelite debris." Yeah, the future. Hope we get a campsite near yours to keep our spirit level high.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks Alan for the kind words. Also thanks for the thumbs up on the mix. I bumped the vocal as per the comments from the last song we did. Glad you liked the song.

A great close to the year for you two.

Happy New Year!

Only Spirit Level can create this kind of a SciFi story. All of their songs create a unique and versatile otherworldly universe.
Cool chord progression, nice melancholy mood suits the folk approach. Scott's guitar plays memorable hook. Robert's vocals and vocal range are very enjoyable.
Very interesting intro & outro take to a journey through the debris.

Thanks Mary. So glad you liked the song. Yes I was playing with automation and the panning for some of the slide guitar parts. Thought it would give a spacey signal kind of vibe.

I enjoyed this quirky song that has a serious message.
Scott, your guitar work is tasty throughout, as always, and the effects are "effective".
Cheers,
Mike

Scott and Robert, a very clever look at space debris.
Great recycling idea!
Fantastic ending
I really liked this song.

Cool opening. That guitar has an out of this world sound. Robert, this is one of your best vocals. And I have to say this is my favorite SL song. Fabulous lyrics.

out past the periphery
little darling its almost free
we`ll make a mansion
a mansion from satellite debris

Gold!

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
