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 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.

I Just Wanna be a Baby Now is a song written in May of 2010, a collaboration between Max Epstein, Chris Kramer, Alex Mentzer and Ben Haley when they were the band Slushy. Max came up with most of it. Ben contributed the line “I don’t want to be so small.” Alex suggested changing the original chorus “I Don’t Want to Be a Baby” to “I Just Want to…” which really made the tune.

We recorded it once in Ira’s garage for the Enigma/Blue Pearl tape. If you come over to the house I’ll play it for ya.

The Lemons recorded a version of I Just Wanna Be A Baby Now, and released it on their first set of demos, “Fresh Squeezed”. This was limited to a run 7 of hand-dubbed tapes on the Tripp Tapes label.

The song uses the chords D, G and A.
