'Summer Night Safari' - destined to be a classic of course. I found the track a very relaxing listen with great production and a very tropical feel. Highlights for me were the unexpected harmonica solo (I don't know why I wasn't expecting it, I just wasn't), the tip-tip vocals and the Jeff-alike guitar part .
N'aww, you lot - thanks! It's mightily chuffing to have such lovely feedback and especially to find out the different bits you enjoyed most.
I really don't recall thinking of Jungle with the alarm clock, it was just to underline about waking up in the real world, but now of course I shall claim all the glory.
As I did all the work impersonating the goat I rather think it should be him that's paying me. In fact I have Jeff's best lawyers working on it as we speak. Pleased it rang a bell though from one of our daft previous threads
Now, of course, you should all be braced and ready for Helmut83 to come a-looking for you for his next creation. Yes, even you wolvesgirlgonewild - if he can persuade BSJ and I out of our lair there is no hope at all for anyone else.....
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny
Glad you liked the guitar solo, BSJ. You know I'm not what you'd call a guitar player, so any good feedback on this feels like a bonus.
I've found out that many people on this forum are really talented and fun to write and record music with, even if when you first summon them they flee like crazy at the sole perspective of participating in a song. Sometimes a couple of weeks later they are coming with more and more new ideas on how to improve the song. For example, the "oohs" and "aahs" of the backing vocals were Uno's idea.
There are a few forum members which, like some Pokemons, are proving to be more elusive (ahem... queenofthehours ... )... so far... only so far... and I've already taken note that wolvesgirlgonewild said she sings...

As much as I would love to show you my musical talents Helmut83 I get very embarrassed when asked to sing in front of people but who knows? You may convince me one day, it is a little ambition of mine to record a song haha
Even though I feel so down I can't get up, I'm still holding on tight to my dreams...
elophile: OH, Yes! Will you take a little sip when no one is looking?

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

BSJ: Circlejerk is waaaaaay out there!

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
