Mr Quarantine - new Forum Monkeys song

Recommended Posts

cool job guys - love the lyrics - had a good laugh at this.

Not only are we still in some kind of lock down here in Cape Town, international travel to all the Countries I need to fly to,  to get back  home to Barbados,  are still banned!! So I really empathise with this!

Well Ed it was not apparent so it can not have been far out? I do not like to crit anyone's voice since mine is so bad.

That has been my approach too on Vocals.

Beatle-esque
Absolutely love the "I'm Mr Quarantine..."  ditty. It's been stuck in my head all day.
Daryl's vocal could maybe come up just a bit if I had to comment on anything.
Well done, gents.

I love this "little ditty"!!!  I think that a lot of us can definitely relate.  Lyrics, performance, instrumentation, mix, etc. all well done.  Great job y'all!!!!

Thanks Freddy!

Excellent lyrics and a cool song - you should post this on YouTube - maybe it will catch on there and get a bunch of listens. A fitting song for the times.

The mix sounds quite good to me.

Thanks Douglas!

I like those bass slides very much, and the Beatles come to mind with a certain Silver Hammer quality.

 

I was still humming it an hour after I heard it. What does that tell you???

 

well done gents!

Thanks Tom!

I enjoyed listening to this.  The lyrics are a little repetitive but that reflects today's reality, doesn't it, every day is the same.  Would the Forum Monkeys have the inspiration or the time to write and record this song if there was no quarantine?  Thank you for putting a smile on my face.

Another laugh thanks ... Wonder what this we sound like back in the day if John / Paul did it ..cause apart from the fade out that's a ringer ... We been locked for what seems a lifetime as the wife was in hospital for 6 months last year with AML and now it starts all over again (Not the AML thank God ... the lock-down)  ... and just because your a F/G songwriter I thought you might like to know when she came into the studio, we both had one of them pensive laughs you have one someone has nailed it !

 

Thanks Daryl

I've listened to this a few times already and I realized I hadn't popped in to tell you how much I like this one. We can all relate! Good mix but to my ears the vocals could come up (don't listen to me, I'm half-deaf already.)

Good tune, the mix sounded really nice here.

thank you kind sir!

It is one of his better vocals Daryl, I am cautious about commenting on anyone's vocals as mine are so lethal to none Wookiee life forms.

 I am also aware that Ed is not adverse to some light leg pulling so I reciprocate occasionally.   

If he as taken offence then it was not my intent, but I would ask him to return the fence when he has finished with it.  His Bass playing, was as usual, up to his excellent standards. 

no offence taken (ever) from you my friend

This is a thinking person's rock!  To make this topical and funny is no small feat.  I just keep coming up with these morose tunes that I can't even relate to.  Well done FM!

"I'm Mr Quarantine I've worn out this week's magazine"

Of course you worn out the magazine!  What else do you have to do.......

 

 Nice song.  But this can't be true,  an Ed that actually can hold a tune :D   Yes I'm digging at myself

:)

thanks Ed.
