about

3/25 ~ Body stalking, bawdy stockings, bodystockings, bodies talking? Or (E) none of the above. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think this song would have taken on this flavour when I was building it. The intro riff got it all started. First written on the 12-string, the intro pattern reminded me of a cross between something from “Crime Of The Century” and “Led Zeppelin III”. Very airy. And then I buried it in the mix. Any acoustic parts have yet to be laid down. Later, babies. When it comes time to revisit this one I’m pretty sure I’ll have a blast with it. It’s quirky, off the beaten path for me. I believe I’ve finally gotten comfortable here in the studio. It’s cozy here. A bit of a sanctuary, really. So yes, there’s still a ton of work to be done on this one. The cover is a bit morbid but the song itself is a bit out there. The original line in the song was “life gets better when the truth comes out.” Truth became troops. Idea being the fans showing up. I guess in terms of “Body Stalking” it takes on an entirely different meaning. It hit me much later (you have a dirty mind) .. well .. xoRJ

lyrics

(Body stalking - body stalking)

Aw yeah .. you’re on my mind
Early in the mornin’ ’til the sun don’t shine
Aw yeah .. live in sin
No one needs to know what the cat dragged in
Aw yeah .. there’s no doubt
Life gets better when the troops come out
Aw yeah .. preach to me
But this I gotta see -

Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me
Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me

Aw yeah .. dangerous curves
Come around the corner and I lose my nerve
Aw yeah .. mind the store
Gonna let you know what the key is for
Aw yeah .. knock me out
TKO in the seventh round
Aw yeah .. remedy me
‘Cause this I gotta see -

Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me
Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me
Where I wanna go .. close my eyes tonight .. (body stalking)
What I wanna hear .. silence in the night .. (bodies talking)

Body stalking - body stalking - body stalking

Aw yeah .. the restless kind
Soul gets happy when the heart’s online
Aw yeah .. nameless street
Can’t get to heaven if the roads don’t meet
Aw yeah .. down to time
Wait too long and you lose your ride
Aw yeah .. if it’s destiny
Well .. this I gotta see -

Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me
Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me
Where I wanna go .. close my eyes tonight .. (body stalking)
What I wanna hear .. silence in the night .. (bodies talking)

Aw yeah .. you’re on my mind
Early in the mornin’ ’til the sun don’t shine
Bawdy stockings
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me

Aw yeah .. live in sin
No one needs to know what the cat dragged in
Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me

Aw yeah .. there’s no doubt
Life gets better when the troops come out
Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me

Aw yeah .. dangerous curves
Come around the corner and I lose my nerve
Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me

Aw yeah .. knock me out
TKO in the seventh round
Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me
Body stalking -
Baby come ‘a’ share your body with me

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more
