Some time in 2007, we booked 1 day in the studio to record this song. We arrived around noon & left the next day around 7am with this track. It never got a final mix & most likely never will, which is why we never released it until now. It's a fun song & since we're playing shows again once in a while, we might as well play it live.
This is a rough mix, unmastered. Here it is for free. This is the last song ever recorded by this band.
Dan Cole: Bass/Back vocals
Jo Vallee: Drums
I NEED A HUG
What can I do about this?
Once again I set off the alarm
I'm not smiling I'm not grinning
I'm not here to end up in your arms
You keep saying I need to cheer up
You keep saying I should lighten up
"Johnny's no fun to be around
JonH's a drag he brings the party down"
You want to know
What are you doing wrong
Why can't we get along
You need to know
Why won't I take your drugs
"That guy just needs a hug"
Johnny needs a hug
I know sometimes I'm kind of clumsy
My hands just slipped & now they're on your tits
This is Johnny trying to be friendly
Even though I don't like to admit
I probably need a hug
