I've recorded this song three times, originally as 'The Jelly Alternative', an instrumental. This was followed by an extended mix with vocals called 'Thank You', which I used as a thank you card for graduation gifts. This is the only version I've submitted on NG, the only version with personally meaningful lyrics, and the last time I'll record the song, I promise.

Lyrics are as follows, for those who might like to sing along:

What's that you're smelling?
The truth just isn't selling; it's cool,
'cause we can profit from fools.
And they said, "Everybody's waiting!
Everybody's waiting for you!"
So come on tell me
what you think I should do.
It sounds like:

(Patronizing guitar solo)

Oh, I
have been wasting all this time
calculating X and why?
<2 may well be five
and I said, "No thank you."
Truth is that I wanted to
and knew too well I could
'n' I am not leaving this room
until I put 'em together,
and that's it!

Home grown?

So, I am convinced that you played the guitars and sang yourself, but did you use a drum machine? The levels could use some work. The voice overpowers the rest of the music so it's hard for me to know exactly what you're playing especially at the end of the song when it sounds like there is a lead riff happening. Other than that, good stuff. If you get some free time, check out "From Inside" on my page. I would really appreciate your view on it.

I did play all the guitars and bass and I did the vocals as well. I charted the drums using FruityLoops, mostly standard samples. I did have a lot of difficulty making everything audible on both headphones and speakers. It sounded good on my headphones, as well as on my neighbor's speakers, but the vocals and rhythm guitar were a little much in my car stereo. For an optimal listening experience, use headphones, I'd say.

There are actually three guitar tracks going on toward the end, but the lead-y sounding ones are doing background type things.

Thanks a million for the review!
