I want. I do not want. I want a cup of coffee, actually!! [Oct. 9th, 2004|04:13 pm]
Miss Von Trapp
[Mood |artisticartistic]
[Music |I Do Blues]

Film Studies yesterday was spent wanting to brutally murder three giggly cakey girls who kept being loud and obnoxious, and going 'aaaaaawwww!! He's soooo sweet' every time Anthony Perkins came on screen.

*grumble*

Got to the Art College at 5:30 wanting to use the darkroom, but it was closed, so went home and re-dyed my fringe a dark pinky red. Work last night was fairly non-eventful - until Ralphy came in to see us and reminded me about his gig tonight - I might do some vocals for him when The DevilRiders start a recording session...

Got very productive in the last half hour when I wrote a song in my head (and the lyrics on paper) and had to keep humming it lest I forget before I got home and recorded it...

Here's the result:

Miss Von Trapp: I Do Blues
(480k)
http://www.vampgirl.com/stuff/MissVonTrapp-IDoBlues.mp3

I'm already working on three other songs at present, but I've got my father working on Cubasis on a piano accompaniment for this one (I worked out the notation earlier today) and also might add some of me on 'cello/bass - or my sisters on flute/sax etc - or my brother-in-law on skiffly drums... Thanks liz_lowlife, I think your nickname for me is rather appropriate;)

I see Marlene Dietrich in a smoke-filled room lol...

I Do Blues

I do not want to love you but I do
I do not want to love you but I do
I do not want to love you
'cause I know I'll never have you
I do not want to love you but I do

I do not want to need you but I do
I do not want to need you but I do
I dare not ever show it
'cause I know that I would blow it
I do not want to need you but I do

I do not want to want you but I do
I do not want to want you but I do
So now I'm sad and lonely
'cause you were my one and only
I do not want to want you but I do

(hum last verse)


..........................

Going out later to meet up with Maff in the Nowhere, then off to the Phoenix to see Ralphy's band : The DevilRiders and Neil's: Remember The Alamo - which won the regional heat of 'Battle of the Bands' last week...

Then I'm off to the MDC Punk Night at Tramps. Catch you all later;)

Some melting piano notes and a bit of atmospheric sax with that, and you're away!
Lovely voice you have there.

Mmm, yep, great voice. If you wanna do a nice recording of something and turn it into a finished piece, we have a decent mic, a little sound booth & DAT here; & I know someone in PLH with a serious multitrack hard disc recorder (he recorded Neil&I in Totnes last night) if you want to get more hardcore about it...

"Marlene Von Trapp" google it

collbeans track there... *inserts to the folder labelled "Chants and Warbles" on my compy*

Oh - i got me a new amp so you can have Ross back. he's kinda jealous that Laney is a little louder than he is, anyway, but he's happier than he was when i took him off you; at least he has a plug now!

enjoy...

Ross is a bit knackered and old - methinks it's time to trade him in for a newer model;)

Cheers!

The 'whirling widdershins' phrase itself?

I made it up - has a nice sound to it. Just gives me the visual of spinning anti-clockwise in a circle, arms outstretched like a dervish and with lots of wind and flappy big skirts lol;)
