Hi chaps

Another 6 months, another song... the triple album's still some way from completion... :(

You Monster

So, Robus - last time you asked when I put the drums into the songwriting process - this one, at the very start - it's all about the drum roll. :D

I've done a bit of editing as it, as always, had a bit of mid muck build up that I can't hear until someone goes "What were you thinking?" - so this, although the first post, is the second mix - if that makes sense. Hopefully a bit clearer now.

Thanks in advance.:drunk:

And thanks to bubba po and Vomit Hat Steve for the additional "kill me" vocals.



YOU MONSTER

You use the methods of the Artful Dodger, without his excuses
I say “What the Dickens was that all about?” You say, “People have their uses”
You pick from that pocket, you steal from that line
In the Court of Love, it’d be convict time
She’s pretty unhappy, she’s a bit of a wreck
You just left her broken and you left her with the cheque
You monster

Kill me, if I’m ever like you
Kill me, it’s the kindest thing
Kill me, if I’m ever like you
Kill me, it’s the kindest thing

I don’t remember how it got like this, you’re a sorry excuse for a friend
My neck gets so sore from shaking my head, and I’m tired of having to defend you
Just between us chickens – can you give it a rest?
Can you scratch that itch, can you get it off your chest?
She’s crying, she’s angry, she’s drinking too much wine
You just turn your back and say, “Nah, she’ll be fine”
You monster

Kill me, if I’m ever like you
Kill me, it’s the kindest thing
Kill me, if I’m ever like you
Kill me, it’s the kindest thing

Everyone hates you, friends all berate you, nobody rates you at all
Still you persist, you turn and you twist, give it time mister you’ll fall
Everyone hates you – nobody rates you
Still you persist – turn and you twist

Some people should come with a warning sign, or a tattoo on their hand
A Lost in Space robot: “Danger Will Robinson!”. Look out! For the quicksand
You think that you’re charming, you think that you’re cut
You’re the master of escape, you slam the door shut
Her confidence is shot, no faith left in love
She’s not just in pain, she is the essence thereof
You monster

Kill me, if I’m ever like you
Kill me, it’s the kindest thing
Kill me, if I’m ever like you
Kill me, it’s the kindest thing
Kill me, if I’m ever like you
Nobody likes you
Nobody likes you

Background vox sound great, nice job VHS and bubba. They're blended really well and add a nice touch. Nothing much to add here, really good mix.

Balances sound good, but the mix sounds too "on top of me" in headphones. Depth issue/setup some different verbs for depth.

I think that's the lead vocal, which isn't sitting right with me - I'm going to retrack it using a different "voice" next week, methinks. I get too much echo in the room when I go loud - gives it this strange harshness, so I'll try some gobo-ing and a softer voice. Thanks for the listen.
