So why should I care if the needle skips… Song 34

What is the word I’m looking for? It’s on the tip of my tongue… it’s driving me crazy! You know, like when it’s that thing or something? You know what I’m talking about right? What is the word!??!

Today’s song was built on the bass again. It features 16 guitar parts all smooshed together into one stereo track. The vocals were doubled multiple times to make an almost “crowd” noise. There is a lot of experimentation with track building here. It sounds cool to me. More importantly, it’s something new I can explore in the future.

Song 34: “The Word”

So what if I wanna just talk to myself
I won’t live on my knees begging for help
Driving me crazy, driving me crazy
Such a wild word

Don’t understand what you’re on about
I wanna scream but you’ll only let me shout

So why should I care if the needle skips
Dreaming of words that won’t pass my lips
Driving me crazy, driving me crazy
What is the word

Don’t understand what you’re on about
I wanna scream but you’ll only let me shout

Out of the way, what should I say
Should I let you know what the magic word is

What is the word
