STINGING EYES
This one has a SLIGHTLY louder main vocal and some oohs n ahhs care of BIAB
Stinging Eyes feat Katya vC
Here's a little ditty, purest country or, perhaps, Cow Punk!
Hopefully it's a bit of fun in a sad way. I can't tell you it will be - you're the one to judge.

Katya of Xabarovskiy Krai did the lead vocals...THANK YOU!!!!...while Kim n Lauren did the gang vocals.
Bandhi Nahbox provided the drums.

Guitars are a 2017 Squire Mustang and a 2019 Harley Benton 12 string Ricky clone both through a Marshall and mic'd with a Sennheizer e609 + a Shure 57.
The Mustang was juiced by a boost from a Boss DS1 pedal - no drive - just level increase.
Bass is a 1981 Vantage through a Behringer BDI21

BIAB details...
WARRIOR.STY
ev8 4/4 F#m 140 bpm.
RealDrums SouthernPopFast 8ths02.

I used the BIAB Melody maker to work out a vocal melody. Sadly it was far too complex and with too wide a range for my croak to sing, or anyone else . I sliced, diced, reworked closer to chord tones and FAR fewer notes. Katya grappled with my heavily edited/reduced/changed result.

LYRICS:
STINGING EYES
verse
You light up the room
And a cigarette too
You just blow
Smoke rings

chorus
You blow your smoke in
My stinging eyes
You don't care
You don't care
Don't care
Who it is cries through
My stinging eyes

verse
You light the city
The stockmarket too
You just blow
Smoke rings

chorus
You blow your smoke in
My stinging eyes
You don't care
You don't care
Don't care
Who it is cries through
Their stinging eyes

Now you heat the globe
For profit too
You just blow
Smoke rings

solo

chorus
You blow your smoke in
Our stinging eyes
You don't care
You don't care
Don't care
Who it is cries through
Our stinging eyes

outro
You just blow
Smoke rings
