SSG11-Week15 iLover

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=12160932

================Revised Version2===================

He orders her online
She’s home by Christmas time
With memories installed
Of childhood and fall

He speaks in euphemisms
She thinks in algorithms
He collected rocks
She was from a box

Chorus
An iLover
i-i-i Lover, Lover
iLover
i-i-i Lover, Lover
iLover

He is flesh and bone
She is silicone
He would sleep and dream
She was a machine

He works and slaves away
In a cubicle all day
She would go to sleep
Dream and count electric sleep

chorus

Now a ripe old age
A limp and head of gray
She still looks the same
The day she ran away

She says she doesn’t know
How the human lost his glow
She was not to blame
Love was just a game

chorus

An upgrade is on the way
An upgrade is on the way

================Revised Version1===================

He ordered her online

iLover

He was flesh and bone
She was silicone
He would sleep and dream
She was a machine

He worked and slaved away
In a cubicle all day
She would go to sleep
Dream and count electric sheep

chorus

Now a ripe old age
A limp and head of gray
She still looked the same
The day she ran away

She said she didn’t know
How the human lost his glow
She was not to blame
Love was just a game

He worked and slaved away
In a cubicle all day
She would sleep and dream
Of sheep electric green

Interesting concept and story. I didn't get

She would sleep and dream
Of sheep electric green

I liked the I-I-I stuttering in the chorus

Hi James,

great song, will listen tonight. I think Asimov might have had story along the same lines although I don't think she ran away.

Of course her running away implies that machines having feelings :D .

cheers

Hi John, Paul and Neil,

Thanks for the listens and feedback :D

I haven't read this book yet, but I did watch the movie Blade Runner; which is somehow tied together with
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_Androids_Dream_of_Electric_Sheep%3F
Of course her running away implies that machines having feelings :D .
That's what I was going for :wink: There is a similar idea in the movie Cloud Atlas.

Very Cool Concept!

I thought this would have some sort of electronic arrangement
but really like the simple guitar and vocal.

I will probably play around with it, but I was on a tight time schedule last night as in 20 minutes from finishing the lines to uploading a recording....but now that I have the green light that it makes sense, I can spend more time in the week playing around with it.

Thanks, John.

Great listen :D .

Now a thought has just crossed my mind, in the chorus we hear ilover which audibly doubles as "I love her" you could put a twist in there at the end where instead of the upgrade line, she runs away to him (the singer).

thanks for the mp3

cheers

Paul
