Y13W14 Zoom, Zoom, Zoom

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13040125

Chorus
Zoom, zoom, zoom...

The night is cold
Her lipstick and hair in place
Three hundred miles southeast of Reno

He’s full of cash
No questions asked
A lonely heart on the road

chorus

There’s blood on the road
A smile smeared across his face
She’s a hit and run love machine

The head light’s smashed
Tire tracks across his back
But no one asked where he’s been

chorus

One head light heading down the road
One head light out of control

chorus

James, at about 2:42 there's the start of a very long pause. All the way to the end. Is the recording all there? I liked what I heard.

At first I thought this was all a metaphor. Then maybe not. Then, if not, why is she a love machine and why is he smiling?

Doesn't 300 miles southwest of Reno put us in the ocean? Kidding, but in trying to picture the setting, I'm not sure if we're near a city or in an empty desert area.

Hi Renee,

Yes, I have a new plugin that automatically adjusts the volume levels of a track, but I haven't figured out why it extends the mp3 versions an extra minute or so.

Yes, it is a metaphor.

Prostitution is a dangerous joy ride.

What is "fun" short term has a negative long term impact.

Oops, my bad. :oops: It was supposed to be Southeast of Reno :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks for the listen and post :D

Works for me.
Although the last line here
The head light’s smashed
Tire tracks across his back
But no one asked where she’s been
I think

But no one asked where he’s been
feels better in this context for me.
The recording definitely has that trucker atmosphere.

cheers
Paul

Agreed...I'll make the change later today.

Thanks!
