Jaguar

Filed under: Songs | Tags: , | Comments Off on Jaguar

Jaguar is a song about a car. I think the chords are B, D, E and F#. It features some fantastic guitar playing and some bleep bloop synthesizers.

I think the only words are “I love my car, it’s a Jaguar”, which I sometimes now sign at the end of “I Gotta Getaway”.


Why Do You Love Me?

Filed under: Songs | Tags: , | Comments Off on Why Do You Love Me?

Why Do You Love me is a song written in August, 2010 from the chords D, C, G and F. It’s a soul-stirring song in which the narrator tries to determine what characteristics make him favorable to his sweetheart, so he may be able to emphasize these particular traits should things take a sour turn. This song has never had a proper release, just a CDR kinda thing.

She’s Going Away Now is a song by Slushy written in March of 2011. It features the chords Bb, C, F, G and D. It does not have a guitar solo. It does have some good changes.

Shimby recorded She’s Going Away Now for the first Slushy LP, “Pastime Gardens”. It sounds great!

This song about about a young woman who is really going places.

Baby with the Big Tape Head is a pop song appearing on the Slushy Yellow EP. It was written by Max Epstein and originally performed by Boshus as “Baby with a Big Head”. The Slushy version features new lyrics and copious amounts of synthesized tape delay, earning the song its expanded title.

Baby with the Big Tape Head uses the chords E, A and D.


Seashine

Seashine was written in May, 2009, and features the chords A, F#, E and D.

Although the song is entirely instrumental, it passes through themes or serenity, longing, passion, anxiety, and sects. But mostly it’s about waves.


Down to the Beach

Down to the Beach was written in March, 2009, and features the chords B, A, E, and F#.

It’s about spending a crappy Chicago winter indoors. Then spring came and I didn’t go to the beach, I still stayed inside. Oops!

If Done (with) Fun wasn’t the first Chicago Slushy song then this one was.


Teenage Frankenstein

Teenage Frankenstein was first conceptualized in November, 2009, and finished in September, 2010. It’s comprised of the chords E, B, A, D and G.

The track is included as the penultimate track on the debut Slushy LP, “Pastime Gardens”. Brent Z shredded the shred stick from shred city.

The themes of the song are isolation, transformation, and self-empowerment. And Frankenstein.


Margot

Margot was written by Max Epstein and originally performed by Boshus (as “Margo”). It features the chords C, F, and G.

The Slushy rendition of the song features a new set of lyrics, and touches on themes of unrequited love, celebrity pop culture, and the importance of nutrition. But those lyrics stunk.

This song was later redone by The Lemons in the Key of E with an even newer set of better lyrics. It’s on “Hello We’re the Lemons”, released by Tripp Tapes (2013), Gnar Tapes (2014), Burger Tapes (2015) and Burger Records (2016).

Take Me to the Future was written in December, 2010, in the car, driving home from a hotel slumber party early in the morning. It features the chords B, E, F#, A, and D. Hey, that’s a lot of chords!

It’s about being impatient and also naive.
