You'll Always Be Sid Vicious To Me ~ original ~ R24

Post by Lungfruit » Wed Dec 14, 2016 7:45 pm

I had the lyrics to this song banging around in my brain for at least 15 years and finally something clicked this week.

As a young man of 20 my GF (now DW) and I loved "Sid & Nancy" and we used to rent a VCR ($500 deposit) and watch it on tape over and over. We loved that movie. When I watch it now it reminds of those times.

I wanted it to be a simple song; just a guitar and my voice. I may be off a note or two, but I like how that fits.

production notes:
guitar ~ Taylor 110ce -> Samson CO2 -> R24
Vocals ~ Sennheiser e822S -> R24

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!

Nice, simple, ballad and well recorded.

I thought for sure it was going to be a rip-roaring electric tune ala' the Sex Pistols. I was very surprised to hear a rather quiet song dedicated to the actor who played Sid in the movie. The song works. Nicely played and nicely sung.

Poor Sid. He was basically just a stupid young kid who looked like a rock star and only had to act like the part, ala' Keith Richards, and it killed him. I was surprised to learn that Sid was originally a drummer in another band before joining the Sex Pistols. I'm not sure how good a drummer he was though. I know he was not a real bass player. He was all image. Sad tale.

Thanks Sean for the listening. That is a sad tale. He seemed like a child caught up in adult world.

I remember renting "Sid & Nancy". It was a good movie, even though it was disgusting at times. I'm sure the girl who played Nancy was a great actress. The character was really annoying, but if that's how she was in real life I guess the actress did her job well. Did you ever read the book that Nancy's mother put out a few years after her death? Fascinating. That girl really had big time problems. Oh well........

Your song is great. The simpler tunes are the best at capturing real feelings. What you seem to be saying is that you are a fan of Gary Oldman. He's a good actor. Very versatile in his ability to play all different types. My fav was Dr. Smith. ("The PAIN!!") :lol:

When I first read your post title I thought the song was from Nancy's point of view, a tale of love and death or something :) . Nice simple acoustic song. Merry Xmas by the way!

Nice simplistic approach, Lungy. Good you finally layed it down. Wrong notes are part of the big picture. Nice tones you're getting on that acoustic.

You certainly have a fresh approach to titles and songs.

I'll have to come back to listen though as Soundcloud and my old Mac do not mix and I'll need my studio Mac.
