She's a Psychic Vampire - new original song

Recommended Posts

Hi fine forum folk

Here's a new song that I wrote and recorded. Lyrics below link. There is a pretty tasty guitar solo by James (jamesg1213) Griffiths at around 1:56 if you want to fast forward past the singing :)

Nits and crits welcome

She's a Psychic Vampire
Written and performed by Staypress
Guitar solo by James Griffiths
V1
It was an ordinary night
The usual crew
At the disco looking for a fight
'Cos there was nothing else to do
Prechorus 1
She walked in the building
Cold and pale and smouldering
But despite her splendour
She'll talk 'til you surrender
Chorus
She's a psychic vampire
V2
The atmosphere had changed in the place
He turned and spoke to her
'I like your cold unsmiling face....
....your cape goes nicely with your hair'
Prechorus 2
She hypnotised her victim
She talked and talked and drained him
She made an empty vessel
Their love was extra special
Chorus
Middle bit
So they bonded forever
She turned him to the night
Now they reap energy together
They give everyone a freaking fright
Chorus to end

I like your demo mate. It's the demo to beat all demos. If I had a demo this good I'd demo it all over town in every demo spot around. 🙂

Another terrific song, lyrics, and vocal from Staypress!  That was a tasty guitar solo, btw.  I once was acquainted with a real psychic vampire, and she truly sucked the life out of the room, so I can relate to this very well.  Gee, it's too bad we're relegated to making only demos here because this raises the bar.

I like it, fun, kinda made me think of Steely Dan somehow. Everything sounds good over here clear and well balanced.

What's not to like.  I echo the comments above ---- for a demo this raises the bar very high.  I would say it is definitely halloween ready for play.  Excellent work  by all.  Excellent vocals  and those are indeed some  tasty guitar sounds.

Nice song.  I like the effects on the vocals - it is a nice change in the sound at that point. Very nice horns.  I never did a horn piece. Nice accents with them.
