Under Your Spell

Sinking Under Your Spell

Yesterday I was screwing around the guitar and came up with a nice little chord sequence. Problem was, while I could get it to a resolution, it started off from a point of tension.

So to fix that I came up with a beginning to the song and tried to pull it to the beginning of that chord sequence and milk it for all it was worth.

Of course then I had to have lyrics. I have been fat. I am currently running. I worry that if I get back into shape my stunted  libido will return and drive me to obsession, disappointment, and finally to depression. So because of that, and because of the way the end of the song sounds, I wrote about that. 

Hopefully this pattern is something other people can relate to! If not, then back to the drawing board.

Thanks as usual for listening.

    More workouts is more testosterone is (often) more libido. For dudes, and for the ladies too! \m/

    (also, lovely song! I like the sound on the guitar; pleasantly buzzy!)

    I like it. The first part reminds me of Ted Leo.

    You sound like Elvis in the first part. You know when I say this I mean this as a compliment.

    This definitely needs to be expanded.

  6. Kelly G

    or Roy Orbison. Works surprisingly well without percussion.

    A catchy jam. Hit material, I think. I also like the vibrato on the vocals.
