So I've got the house to myself. And I've got a guitar. What to do, what to do? Cover some Murray Head, of course!

This was recorded in about an hour-and-a-half, using only a single guitar and whatever I could scrounge on my outdated copy of Garageband.

LYRICS:

Bangkok, Oriental setting
And the city don't know what the city is getting
The creme de la creme of the chess world
In a show with everything but Yul Brynner

Time flies, doesn't seem a minute
Since the Tirolean Spa had the chess boys in it
All change, don't you know that when you
Play at this level, there's no ordinary venue

It's Iceland or the Philippines
Or Hastings or, or this place

One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
You'll find a God in every golden cloister
And if you're lucky then the God's a she
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

One town's very like another
When your head's down over your pieces, Brother

It's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity
To be looking at the board, not looking at the city

Whaddya mean?
Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town

Tea girls, warm and sweet, warm, sweet
Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham Suite

"Get Thai'd", you're talking to a tourist
Whose every move's among the purest
I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can't be too careful with your company
I can feel the Devil walking next to me

Siam's gonna be the witness
To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
This grips me more than would
A muddy old river or Reclining Buddha

But thank God, I'm only watching the game, controlling it

I don't see you guys rating
The kind of mate I'm contemplating
I'd let you watch, I would invite you
But the queens we use would not excite you

So you better go back to your bars, your temples
Your massage parlors

One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
You'll find a God in every golden cloister
A little flesh, a little history
I can feel an angel slidin' up to me

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can't be too careful with your company
I can feel the Devil walking next to me

Really nice acoustic guitar. I don't know the original so I can't really speak about that. Some bass guitar would really help.

1:55 - good lead

Yeah good song man. Obviously it's pretty much all about the vocals and acoustic guitar which is good enough to make the song interesting... but it could be a lot better with a bass guitar.

Hahaha the chorus is kind of like Africa's right? Fun stuff.


Ceevro responds:

Yeah...I'd really like a bass. I just don't have the fundage at the moment, so I have to rely on others to fill in the gap, sadly. Sometimes I can get a bassist, but most of the time, I just make due with the equipment I already have. My wife would kill me if I came home with ANOTHER guitar (I've got 3 acoustic/electrics, a mandolin, a uke, a digital piano, and a drum-kit that's too loud for me to use, but won't seem to sell for a decent price...)

Get a bass guitar. You got nothing going on under 200hz.

1:55 the guitar is too loud, it clips and overpowers everything. Other than that, good mixing, I am able to hear and understand the vocals at all times.

I understand the mastering, it's an acoustic track and not the latest EDM club banger so I'll let it slide that this track is quiet.
