Very rough demo. Particularly the vocals! I had literally 10 minutes spare to squeeze them in. Also, I think the song is wrong key for the melody I chose... it's too low to belt out, but if I go higher, it's waaaay too high. If I ever rerecord it, first thing I'll have to do is take it up from E to A or something.
It started out with the bassline. I was going to try and write something like early Simple Minds, and as you can hear, missed by a long way... ended up with something half Neil Young, half 'Bullet the Blue Sky'.
Drums: Beau Burchell Signature Series
Bass: Fender Jaguar through Amplitube
Synth: Odyssey (software)
(I'm not going to ask for opinions on this mix because lol, it's a huge mess)
waking up is no good, it just means another day
but i can't sleep forever, there's too much riding on me
if i skip out on work, nothing happens - but they say i'm essential
if i go on a bender, nothing breaks - but they say i have to work
giving up is no good, it just means nothing to do
but i can't decide what to be, there's too much riding on me
if i think about it, nothing happens - but they say i'm essential
there is nothing i do that's essential - i got by without you
mmm mmm mmm mmm mm mm mmm
