By the way, I’m still screaming… Song 348

Today’s song was another one of those that was literally the first thing I played when I picked up my guitar. The chord progression/riff for the verses (most plainly heard on the left speaker) is what started this whole song off. I deconstructed the whole thing and assigned the different parts of the chords I was playing to different instruments. The root is being played by the piano and bass, the individual notes of the riff are being played by a couple different synths. With a couple guitars over the top, it sounds loose and airy to me, but still an obvious chord progression defined. And, I added a tambourine, because, why not?

Song 348: “Electric Cold”

I’m going out of my mind
I watch all my time
Go by the wayside, by the wayside
By the way, I’m still screaming

Gimmie all the gold I can carry
And I’ll show you how it’s done
Cuz I’ve got nothing but time on my hands

I’m electric cold
Headstrong and bold
By the way now, by the way now
By the way, I’m still dreaming

Gimmie all the love you can handle
And I’ll show you how it’s done
Cuz I’ve got nothing but love on my mind

Flowing like endless time
A fire like this never hides
Cuz you’re on my mind

Gimmie all the love you can handle
And I’ll show you how it’s done
Cuz I’ve got nothing but love on my mind

I go out of my mind
I go out of my mind
When I have your love
