Yes, I noticed this morning as there were several Facebook posts about it. Quite cool but .... will his song/songs make it to the album? Trust me, I'm not trying to throw a monkey wrench (no pun intended) into this but lets not forget the James And The Giant Peach disaster. Hopefully things won't end up like that.
Pretending I'm a pleasant person all day is exhausting
This is pretty nifty. I’m especially intrigued by the old songs being made new.
Reading about the potential Harry Nilsson/Mickey Dolenz duet is exciting, as I have the utmost respect for the talent of Mr. Nilsson (as a person he has been portrayed as being a bit of an ass). A new Michael Nesmith tune sounds promising as well (I’m a fan of his solo work - check it out if you are unfamiliar), as does a renewed Neil Diamond song. It will be interesting to hear what the musicians and producer do with the ‘Andy Partridge sound’.
I'm vaguely familiar with Weezer and Death Cab. Those of you who know, how do you think these bands sound will translate to adult pop?
I have heard two songs from the album; Andy's, 'You Bring the Summer' and Rivers Cuomo's, 'She Makes Me Laugh'. Both are fine examples of bubblegum pop but I guess I was expecting more 'grownup' lyrics. Jeez, these guys are in their 70s for Pete's sake! Whatever... Mickey Dolenz's voice is spectacular!
While I enjoy and appreciate both songs, She Makes Me Laugh is the winner with its killer! chorus.
Mare: sticksman1...Hey Terry! Thank you so much for sharing! Thanks to The Fossil Fools and all who helped get the show off the ground with a thoroughly enjoyable performance! I'm excitedly awaiting the release of your set after post winds up!
