  1. Eagle Center

    This is my attempt at a protest song. There are plans to establish a wind farm just to the west of where we live. The closest 300-450 ft tall windmill will be 2,000 ft from our front door. To the west have you, so every evening our beautiful sunsets will be ruined by ugliness and the pulsating shadows cast by the blades as they pass in front of the sun. that's the why Song-wise - I paid attention to the distance of the microphone, shaka distance from my mouth for the vocal, about 3 ft back for the guitar. I paid attention to the level setting before and during adding the eq, compression and reverb to try and keep it level and not over blown. So this is first posted take, there were others while trying to develop the idea. The few strums at the beginning were only thought of this morning. If you comment that I need to add drums or bass or violin, I'll kick your ass. Eagle Center Was a place locals called Eagle Center A place tourists called "where is that" Where a father would lift up his young'n So the young'n would know where he's at Was a horse that kicked nails out of fences A dog prowled 'round like a cat Was a young lady high on her honey But her honey didn't mind much of that Good-bye sunset Good-bye evening breeze Good-bye beautiful wonder Good-bye home of my dreams The sheriff did never come 'round there 'cause the people would tend to themselves Good folk who worked for their money But the money wasn't part of their wealth Was a place in Black Hawk county Northeast up Iowa way The fields there always lay sunny 'Til the wind came and blew them away Good-bye sunset Good-bye evening breeze Good-bye beautiful wonder Good-bye home of my dreams With an acre of greed And a landowners deed And a spade full of fanciful lies The blade of the mill Kept spinning until Eagle Center died Good-bye sunset Good-bye evening breeze Good-bye beautiful wonder Good-bye home of my dreams Was a place locals called Eagle Center A place tourists called "where is that" Where a father would lift up his young'n So the young'n would know where he's at Good-bye sunset Good-bye breeze Good-bye wonder Good-bye dream
