about

Tick After Tock. I wanted to get back to my roots for this album. I’m still not sure how to take this one. TICK AFTER TOCK (Dance Mix) was our first single release of 2018 and is a much sparser, bass heavy version of the song you’re hearing now. I’ve always tried to make it a point of having the lead-off track to be one with energy. The backing vocals were a last minute addition to this one. Ba Ba .. I don’t know why but I picture Celine Dion singing it onstage. Pinch me. But I love the bounce and the keyboard solo. This song is also one of the three reasons why this release is as late as it is. And replaced a song I was convinced would never lose the top spot. That’s rockroll for you … And another milestone - my first keyboard solo. Ever. This one? Why, my little fabumess .. of course. Tick after tock. Oh, and I would love to drive a car on Mars. Maybe that crazy ass one that Tesla launched recently. Have I already been out oranged?

lyrics

Tick tock - tick tock
Tick tock - tick tock

So cool .. so caramel
My favourite glue ..
Sirens in my closet
You're the mess I'm sticky to ..
My kind .. hey, trouble
The crow at my door
In distress, a fabumess
Femme fatale I can't ignore

You make the time for me
You never get me wrong
I never make believe I'll stay away too long

Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick - after tick - after tock

Tick tock - tick tock

So rock .. so candy
Mackintosh toffee to go
Building cars to drive on Mars
More than afterglow ..
Be tart, out orange me
Be why they took Tang to the Moon
Luna rocks your Terry socks .. static cling was made for you ..

You make the time for me
You never get me wrong
I never make believe
I'll stay away too long

Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick - after tick - after tock

Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick -after tick - after -
Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick -after tick - after tock

A - E - I - O - U and sometimes why?
'Cause you are hot
I am tick - after tick - after tock

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. Our seventh full-length release "Piece Of Your Ghost" becomes available on June 18th, 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release or two. September sounds good. Summer's coming! Time to kick a few ghosts around ... Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
