Hippies Don't Wear Plaid ~ original ~ R24

Post by Lungfruit » Wed Apr 12, 2017 1:10 pm

DW and I were out listening to the local Grateful Dead cover band when it dawned on me that hippies don't wear plaid. :mrgreen: And I thought what an odd title for a song.

https://soundcloud.com/strayed-from-the ... wear-plaid

For some reason it cuts off a moment before it should at the end. I don't know why and I couldn't fix it.

CHORUS
Hippies don't wear plaid. They prefer earth tones.
Hippies don't wear plaid. Hippies don't wear plaid

Wrote this song about hippies. Never thought I'd do.
Turns out hippies are just like you. 'Cept hippies don't wear plaid

Here's another thing, you might like to know;
hippies don't work at Taco Bell or Domino's
They want to make coffee at your shop.
Hippies won't make tacos, ( or) bring you pizza.
Sit out by the river reading Nietzche

CHORUS

How do tell a hippy from a hipster?
A hippy won't wear those chunky glasses either.
Plus a hippy won't wear plaid.
Never saw a hippy in Izod-Lacoste. Never saw a hippy in Chanel.
But you'll never see one in the checker flannel.
Because hippies don't wear plaid.

CHORUS

Really nice sound you captured here. Bouncy! You nailed the sound to go with the subject matter. Drums fit perfectly. Great lyrics and vocals.

I like it!

Drums fit perfectly.
Thanks Sean. I'm working hard on my drums. That's the hardest part for me. I'm not a drum-programming talent like John is. Thanks Dick for giving it a whirl.
