Seeking Submissions for Hippie Band Name.... [More:]
Some friends of mine and I are starting up a bona fide psych folk band ala Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span, Donovan, etc.

I'm inviting the 'Haidz to assist us with our name. So far the only ones I've come up with are:

The Bedclothes Horse
The Shypyarde Brigges (for locals only)
The Fuzzy Wuzzy Toilet Seat Cover Band

Have at it, kids! I've also written a song for the band if you're at all curious.

Yes. Not as a band name, since it's in use, but, yes, I'd like to hear your song for the band. As a name, I suggest The Schizo-Affectives.

Slack - those are great SONG TITLES! Can I have your permission to use them as such?

Here's the song (no music for it yet, it's barely an hour old.) Feel free to submit me mp3's for it and you're in the band.

Hello Everybody, So Glad To See You

Big Cat stretches out, one open eye
Daylight has come to greet you
put your padded feet down on the floor
and feel the floorboards creak

In this house with all its hallways
a sound to every room, for every hour
passing days like rain dripping down the pipes
and the street asks why are you still inside?
Hello everybody, so glad to see you
front door greets you as you fly by
rising off the sidewalk like smoke
with the sunshine humming in your eyes

Hello everybody, so glad to see you
the sun translates lovesound in my mind
birdsong hymns and sky lullabies
out and about, sing and shout, so glad to see you
slide guitar woman, so floppy jeans fine
sits on her front stoop, staging silly scenes
up pops the puppet, dressed to the nines
downward she climbs, and high as she shines

off to the market, to sample the wares
in pebblestone shoes of leather and twine
a dime for an apple, a quarter for wine
the sun speaks the prices, pays for our care

Repeat Chorus, fade......

Please to be naming your band: Repeat Chorus, Fade. Thank you.

LT - Glad you like them - the phrases are out for the taking! Even though I haven't written an actual song in 15+ years I still keep jotting down phrases for song titles. Occassionaly they're actually attached to a verse or chrus, but most of the time they're just phrases that sound like they could be song titles. At best all I use them for are mix disc titles, so I'd love to see somebody use one for something.
