about

“Boo” ~ You could pull the Queen of Spades on me. A song about a tricksey girl, she trickses us (thanks Gollum). Had an absolute blast experimenting with the scary guitar parts. There’s a bathroom just off the studio so I hauled a micro Orange amp in there, cranked it and put it through an SM57 and then the whole thing through an old Radio Shack reverb mixer before pumping it through the board. Oh, I’ll be using this little concoction in the future. Note to the future wife: If I start dragging Marshall amps up to the fourth-floor bathroom please call the proper authorities. Boo, I believe, is a term of affection between lovers. I can’t be sure, I wrote this one in October. Just kidding. It is a love phrase. I’ll send you an SOS because I could use clarification. Love playing this one with the backing tracks. I spent some time mulling over the lead vocal track. In the end, I decided to redo it. It’s a bit of a luxury having the rehearsal studio directly below. It surprised me at times. What the hell just came out of me? Then up to the NerveCentre to lay down the latest vocal melody. At times new parts arrive before I’ve committed the part I’m working on to tape .. lord mercy. These days the ideas are everywhere. Everywhere I turn. No matter what floor I’m on. Or whether I’m awake or sleeping. Those nasty little ideas. Why they pop up out of nowhere and say “Boo” .. xoRJ

lyrics

Boo!
Boo!

I never seem to get past ‘B’
Thinking about you
Let’s get the whole thing started

Sending you an SOS
Whenever you can get to me
Send out your rescue party

Oh - you get me started
Tongue just gets all tied
Yes, you do - you get me started

(All the time ..)

Be your boo .. be your bae
Stick to love like goo
Be your boo .. make me bae
The things I'd do for you

Boo - Boo!
Boo - Boo!

Happy with a trick or treat
Whatever you hand out
At least there’s something waiting for me

Suit each other to a ’T’
You could pull the Queen of Spades on me
I laugh - pretend you’re sorry

Oh - you get me started
Tongue just gets all tied
Yes, you do - you get me started

(All the time ..)

Be your boo .. be your bae
Stick to love like glue
Be your boo .. make me bae
The things I'd do for you

Be your boo .. be your bae
Stick to love like glue
Be your boo .. make me bae
The things I'd do for you

Be your boo .. be your bae
Stick to love like glue
Be your boo .. make me bae
The things I'd do for you

Be your boo - oh, I want to be your ...
You know I’d be your ...
Oh, I’d love to be your ...
Said I’ll be your boo
Ooh, you, your boo
Would you be my ...

Love to have you -- love to have you ...
