The Time Has Come...

The Event has released a demo of its first song, "Boys". Myspace seems to be taking its sweet time in granting us our 'featured artist' page. In the meantime, you can download the song by clicking here: The Event - Boys. Lyrics are below.

Boys

I see you dancing
Out on the floor
I see you dancing
Why don't you give me some more?
When we tire of everyday affairs,
This is the place that we go

Boys, you know they have all the fun
They've got tight blue jeans and mascara on
Can we go dancing to my favourite songs
'Cause I, I'd like to see them dancing

I want to go dancing
Out on the floor
Being at home is no fun anymore
Watching the boys, you know I just don’t care
So come on now, I want to see you there

Girls, is it worth your while?
They don’t want your number or your pretty smile
But some boys make you feel so good inside
That it’s fine, just to see them

Boys, you know they have all the fun
They’ve got tight blue jeans and mascara on
Can we go dancing to my favourite songs
‘Cause I, I’d like to see them dancing

You are the object
You’re the only one
Who’s having any fun
Without pretension
Or reason to care
For those who watch on

I really like the chorus - the harmonies are great and it's still in my head. But I didn't really like the melody of the verse.

My overall impression is you were trying out different instruments and effects in different parts of the song, whereas I wanted consistent rhythm instrumentation and maybe three motifs that could be layered, added and taken away in different ways. I think it's a great song if it's simpler, pared down.

Thanks for the feedback - yes, I realised that it is rather all over the shop, production-wise, once I uploaded it. There will be another more consistent version made of it after some time. I thought it needed some exposure first of all.

(The chorus is quietly my favourite bit too.)
