March – Stop and Drop It

This is our first song for the one song a month release called “Stop and Drop It.” This song is one of four we recorded with CrashFour’s old drummer Harley Wright. Thanks to Ryan Peck, Harley and I spent one weekend at the Boise Rock School and tracked the drums for the four songs. A few months later, Rebecca Martin and I spent a lovely day recording Rob Hill on bass guitar at Rebecca Scott’s house and also had a great barbecue with grill master Rob who gave us a great burn from his habanero bacon burgers.

The most unique part of this song is the lead guitar parts come from Rio de Janeiro. Using the powers of the Internet and the website groovezoo.com, Leandro Chernicharo, who lives in Rio, graciously added his unforgettable guitar hook, leads, and rhythm.

Lyrics

You can’t be happy if you can’t be sad
You can’t move forward if you can’t look back
And accept all the answers that made you youTime will tell whether we were born to
Beg for mercy or beg for more
And find all the reasons that stopped you from walking throughBecause you have to fight for what’s yours
And you deserve much moreWhat you wanted wasn’t what you whore
And what you gave is what you gave us before
So it’s time
Just stop and drop it and start to let it go
Stop and drop it and start to let it goBecause you have to fight for what’s yours
And you deserve much moreWhat’s that that you have in your hands
Is it what you wanted before you began
If it’s not
Just stop and drop it and start to let it go
Stop and drop it and start to let it goBecause you have to fight for what’s yours
And you deserve much more
