about

“Teaser (She)” ~ Devil’s on her shoulder … whispers in her ear. That sounds about right. But the shoulder is mine. And that Devil is actually a ring of angels giving me lyrical suggestions. The music itself was quite straight forward and that road was paved pretty quickly. That didn’t happen with the lyrics. Not so much. At least five re-writes. Sadly, there were plenty of great verse lyrics unused. I decided not to write my version of War & Peace. Kept the song at a respectable length. All in all, I hope I managed to tell a good story. The title itself was inspired by the great Tommy Bolin album, “Teaser”. Such great groove on so many tracks. Playful. And that’s the spirit I was after. The vault offered an idea nugget or two and I was off to the races. The Vault. Like having a permanent ace up your sleeve. Blesses. We had a bit of work to do on this one. But not much. A few small messes in aisle number three. I like to think of this as my little Britpop number. Although I’m not entirely sure what elements Britpop contains. No matter. It sounds foreign to my catalog. In much the same fashion that a song like “Body Stalking” does. So it’s Britpop until you inform me otherwise. I had visions of adding a Reggae number. Well, that's how it started off. I swear there are ghosts in this room. Always changing the song's parameters while I'm asleep. Mr. Bert and the muse, I guess. It’s a sassy little number live. Playful. There’s that word again. Or like we used to say onstage .. we’ve got a toe-tapper for you. Your little toe-tapper. I was secretly hoping you’d pick this one. A chance to finish that one section. Saturn. Get busy. Keeping the faith and wishing you plenty of summer shine … xoRJ

lyrics

She doesn’t answer when I place another video call
Feeling disconnected .. more or less expected
Flag down a taxi - “cabbie, take me to the Crown”
Heart starts racing .. she knows I’m chasing her

She - teaser, yeah .. she tease me so
She - teaser, yeah .. she tease me so

To the cabbie she is golden .. surely gets around
Uptown, downtown .. keeps the fleet a’rollin’
Devil’s on her shoulder .. whispers in her ear
“Keep him waiting .. you love it when he’s chasing you ..”

She - teaser, yeah .. she tease me so
She - teaser, yeah .. she tease me so
Teaser .. yeah .. she tease me so

(The electronic angel sings now)

Outside looking in .. can’t seem to break the glass
See her everywhere .. nowhere in particular
Reads her daily horoscope .. says I’m not her type
Says she’s an Aquarius - or maybe Sagittarius ...

She - teaser, yeah .. she tease me so
She - teaser, yeah .. she tease me so
She - teaser, yeah .. she tease me so
She - teaser, yeah .. she tease me so
Teaser .. yeah .. she tease me so

(The electronic angel sings once again .. akin to a redo dream .. )

She - teaser, yeah .. she tease me so
She - teaser, yeah .. she tease me so
Teaser .. yeah .. she tease me so
Teaser .. yeah .. she tease me so
Teaser .. yeah .. she tease me so
SHE A

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
