Worked with a couple of college interns last year who'd never heard of any band I like. I felt like an asshole bragging about going to shows that happened 20 years before they were born. Lyrics: Oldie Bear was there at woodstock Dancin…read more

Like the bass line on this one especially. Really fun album, Dave. I like hearing you do different things with your voice. I'd like to hear some more vocal experimentation from you! Excellent RPM!

I wrote this song for my brother, who'd recently had surgery. Yes, I know it's long. I cut something close to three minutes out of it...FWIW it's supposed to butt right up against the next track "Oldie Bear" but you can't really do that in an…read more

Dave, I think this is one of your best songs & best vocals, love the effect on the guitar break too.

A post on the Facebook RPM group featured a quote from an aging Dave Grohl complaining about Kids These Days and Their Terrible Music, pointing out that the current number-one song was about someone's butt. So, I wrote a song about my butt…read more

I wrote this from the point of an old person, such as myself, but my vocals came out so bad that I had to get Olivia to sing it for me. Lyrics: Looking over a modern meme It's the worst that I've ever seen Everything looks a little strange…read more

Dude I can totally hear this as a Go-go's song. Another excellent vocal by Olivia!

There is actually a LOT of goose poop at my office park, but I opted to use the joke title referring to my favorite Beach Boys song. FWIW, the drum loops came from https://www.organicdrumloops.com/

Woah, this is a woozy little number.... maybe it's the goose poop vapors going to my head. Very Weenish, especially when the vocals come in!! Nice one.

This one is the only track that I am a little disappointed in. I thought it would be a banger and a lead-off track, but I had trouble getting it to exactly where I thought it would be. I think the problem is that I am nowhere near as good a singer…read more

More excellent lyrics, and I actually like the vocal blend. Only halfway though this album, and I'd say it's your best ever!

This song features my first attempt at recording myself playing a drumkit. I only did four takes, sorry. Lyrics: They’re gonna say I stole this song And I knew it all along They own the copyright on C, G, C, G, D They’re gonna sue the…read more

I asked Olivia to name something (in three or four syllables) that causes her consternation. Her answer, "Society". Sometimes she follows my scratch vocal line when I record a demo for her, this time she just let it rip, and it is probably the…read more

The best track on RET, in my opinion. The vox effects complement the wheedling synth very nicely.
