My Friend by foothilltribe published on 2012/05/19 03:04:04 +0000 A quirky alternative rock/pop song. This recording of My Friend is an unfinished version, but it is an honest showing. Perhaps the minimalist and demo nature of the production captures the emotion of the song and hopefully that honesty will come through. NOTE: The production quality for many of the songs on our Conspiracy No. 9 release was more "demo" in nature than the previous Stone Fly album. This is because when we were writing Conspiracy we had a lot of record label and industry people interested in Fly With Me and the Stone Fly record and we were being asked to record more and more songs. Thus, we would put the songs down on tape, get a decent demo mix, and send the demo tracks to various producers, labels, and other people. Interesting Side Note: Well known rock producer John Kurzweg got a copy of Stone Fly and became a huge fan of the Stone Fly album and the band's eclectic sound and the overall style, nature, and writing of the band. We became good friends with John and he re-edited a couple of the more alternative-rock type songs off Conspiracy No. 9 ("Sun on My Thumb" and "Crash"), tweaked the knobs a little in his studio, and circulated the stuff to the label guys. We will be uploading those songs and John’s edits/mixes to our cloud in the future. LYRICS: Do you want to be my friend... Times are hard, like bricks are heavy And things are pretty heavy now I need to know, Are you ready Are you ready right now I want you to be my friend Do you want to be my friend .... You like Ford, I like Chevy Is that too heavy to ignore If you know which way to turn now You better learn now, Which way to go I want you to be my friend.. Do you want to be my friend..
