@thelowestbitter: I made the instrumental of this song in the first week of FAWM after discovering Garageband now has a synth setting that does the tropical house dolphin squeal sound (as heard in the excellent pop song "Sorry" by Justin Bieber, and approximately 10,000 other less excellent pop songs). I was aiming for some alt-R&B vibe I think instead of tropical house? I'm not sure how well I achieved it.
Anyway, I made a couple of half-hearted attempts at vocals with some mediocre, meta lyrics about trying to write a pop song and failing, but I gave up once I realised the vocal melody I was singing was basically Temporary Secretary by Macca. I was all set to abandon this but I asked @judypie if she had any ideas for it, because last year she successfully rescued another FAWM song I was struggling with, and she's managed to work her magic again! Way to go Julie! Next year I promise we'll do a proper collab and I won't just throw my garbage at you for you to turn into diamonds (even if you're good at it!). 😀
@judypie - Jed sent me backing track and said he was feeling some FKA Twigs vibes.. Think I gave him more FCK Sticks but w/e, this was fun. I loved the opportunity to sing on something that isn’t just my bloody acoustic guitar so thank you for the sounds Jed 😁 No idea where the lyrics came from. I was just unconsciously rambling about two strangers meeting at a party and clicking and having the night of their lives and then.. well it got all heavy and turned into daterape or something.. I feel like Jed’s music got darker in the second half so my lyrics seemed to follow it down the deep dark hole.. so I just wrote all the sickening lines that people use to get you into bed with them. Batted it back to Jed so he could get his vocoder on! Thank you Jed 😀
We’ll be talking in hieroglyphics by morning
I’ll be dancing about architecture for him
We’ll make perfect sense
Watch for the click
Polyphonic monophony to end it
You’ve been waiting for me
And I’ve been waiting for you
Let’s go and get it on
I know this will last past dawn
Didn’t know I’d get so lucky tonight
Baby don’t put up a fight
Why you putting up a fight?
Do you think you can change your mind?
What about all the fun we had tonight?
Take my word for it, this will be just fine
I’ve been watching you
I saw you watching me
You know I’m feeling you
And you owe it to me
Let’s go and get it on
Baby please stop with no
You’re gonna be my bitch
Don’t say you didn’t feel the click
Don’t say you didn’t feel the click.
