Lovely song, really!
This collaboration worked really good. Your voices sounds awesome together and the sounds Taka did were great. And that violin is amazing.
This was pretty pretty good. Liked it a lot!

wowow, lovely it is indeed! those instrumentals are very well done... I love how it starts out with that analog drum machine and plain acoustic guitar, and then evolves into a complex texture of sounds and flavors and... very world-music like, with the violin and the spanish-type guitar.

great vocals... care to post the lyrics? I can't really decypher everything that well

but... as for voting... I guess it ends up being rather high

ah yes... listening now after taking a break from it for a bit...

heh.. I was having tech problems... one of them being my left and right speakers playing backwards during mixing.... so it all sounds backwards to me

anyway... getting on with it... I really like the song.

and now I must critique myself... the only big problem I think I should mention is my guitar... solo... thingy... it's out of tune.. a lot... but there wasn't really much I could do. it was my $15 silvertone tenor... I'm surprised it lasted through the entire 8 measures without disintegrating completely.

heh.. as for the rest... good work spoon!! it was a blast!!

...and here are the lyrics Puppet:

Verse 1

I often think about strange things
The twist that innovation brings
Itís a phase you say Iím going through
But a phase is change Iím warning you    mm mm mm

Sometimes we think our thoughts are just a drop in the bucket
But Liza says just mend it dear just mend it dear, just mend it dear   mm mm mm

Verse 2
I often contemplate the rain
And how it makes people complain
And it seems a hassle getting wet
But who says dry is paying off our debt    mm mm mm

Chorus 2
Sometimes we think it all pours out and we can never mend it
But Liza says with a stone my dear, with a stone my dear, just get a stone my dear   mm mm mm

Verse 3
I often analyze the truth
And how the listenerís needing proof
Itís a game of words thatís often played
But a gameís not real itís only what weíve made   mm mm mm

okay....I love this! It is inventive, energetic, and absolutely unique. Love the lyric content, the vocal delivery. The instrumentation is excellent (I'm crazy about that acoustic guitar in the beginning and threaded throughout the song...whoever is playing that is doing a really fine job). Taka's influence is clearly seen in this piece (which is a delight) with the rich textures of sounds, the intricate counter-melodies...the "ebb and flow" qualities...pure Taka.  My only criticism would have something to do with the mix. In my opinion, the instruments may be a little too far up in the mix and competing with the vocals somewhat, and like Max said, Taka's voice could use a little tweaking in the mix (maybe a little compression....I'm not sure) as well. Also, I would be tempted to saturate that percussive sound at 2:45 (...when it's just the guitar and some percussive effect..) with reverb. This song makes me want to dance (like Greek people do at weddings, you know?)

Well, this is one to download for sure.
A very well thought out, intelligent piece of music.
Well played, well recorded, beautifully sung.

I especially like the instrumental blending that you use - and yes that violin is extremely nice in there (but perhaps a little too loud )

Great song.

Well done SpoonTaka.

(Spoon, spoon, taka taka, spoon, spoon, taka taka, spoon, spoon, taka taka, .... CRASH cymbal )

To answer how we did this, well here it is...

I emailed Tak a wma file which included the bosa nova drums that start and finish the song, my vox, my acoustic guitar playing the part that starts the song (and continues on) and my acoustic rhythm guitar (that you hear come in near the beginning) - all mixed on a traditional soundboard.  And I emailed him a copy of the lyrics and guitar chords.

From there...he added his vox, violin, bass, the acoustic spanish lead guitar part in the bridge, a bunch of other stuff, and he mixed it all.  He didn't really have much choice as to how my vox were mixed against the guitar...because I sent him a premixed trak...but I think he did an amazing job with what I sent him!!

Thanks everyone for your warm replies (and thanks for the cookies little paper doll)
