I'm Gonna Start Writing Songs Again ... Here's a (Flaming Lips Cover) Warm Up



The Flaming Lips are a screwed up band. And I love 'em for it.

Case in point: this song. "Bad Days" features a really happy, almost Christmas-like melody, but it's about an awful day when the narrator is doing really bad things.

Despite recent surging popularity, the Lips haven't really produced a consistently great album since at least 2006's At War with the Mystics. And "Bad Days" itself hails from all the way back to 1995's Clouds Taste Metallic, which I previously listed as the band's 4th-best album.

  1. During the 50s, popular tunes were those that were vocally rich with a string accompaniment and a vocal chorus back up.

  2. Usually starting off with a mediocre sound will give you a mediocre track! Starting with the chorus can yield some amazing results though it can be long and tedious trying to find that right melody!..buyrealplays.co
