Not quite about sploshing.

I've started writing a lyric stemming from this idea. The music I have (already done the chords, rhythm and melody or guitar) is fast but fluid and the tune is good, so I'm not going to write about sploshing itself as that would work better as a direct comedy song, with more abrupt music. I'm going for the more general theme of eating food off of somebody. Trying to get in some cannibalist undercurrents too :D , but put across with the right subtlety, so that people might think they're imagining the cannibalistic bit...

I'm working backwards from the chorus, so I have the bridge and chorus, but no verse and will wait until I try it with the band to write a mid-section.

---------------------------

I'm hungry for your touch
I can't wait another minute
We know what's going down

My tongue upon your flesh
Upon your mouth, I want to be in it
Want to feel the flavour that abounds

Midnight meetings taste so good
When you’re covered in food
Maybe its undignified
But I just want to be stir-fried

Midnight meetings taste so good
When you're covered in food
Don’t let hunger madden us
I’m ravenous tonight

Should I lick?
Or should I bite?
I feel ravenous tonight

Should I wear a napkin
Just to be polite?
I feel ravenous tonight

--------------------------

Maybe...
My own apple of discord
Should I taste aphrodite?
I feel ravenous tonight

(Is this reference too obscure and will anybody get peeved by pronouncing it 'Aphro-dyt', rather than 'Aphro-dit-ee?)
OR
To douse you in syrup?
Angel delight?
I feel ravenous tonight

OR
I'm a vegatarian
But carry on in spite
I feel ravenous tonight

OR
I'm gonna wear a napkin
Just to be polite
I feel ravenous tonight

OR
At root I'm just a carnivore
Though I may seem erudite
I feel ravenous tonight



---------------------------

What do you think so far? I'll update it as I'm writing it.

Please let me know what you think though! You can influence my song while its being written!!

so is this supposed to be a comedy song or not? If you're going for a more serious, darker feel (which would support any kind of canabalistic undercurrents you want to go with) I'd suggest reworking the bridge. The first line "when you're covered in food" is definitely comical. You could almost go with it as more of an allegory throughout the entire song, kind of allude to the whole food thing but not actually say "i want to stir fry you and slather syrup on you".

I want it to be semi-comedic, so not a nose-honking, nudge-in-the-ribs kind of comedy, but more a kind of fun lyric, but with a slightly disturbing tinge.

I'm not even sure if its possible, but I'll try and will be prepared to fail totally.

EDIT: I'm not sure how clear my intentions for the song are, its to be...

1. The DEFINITE THEME for the song is about eating food OFF OF ANOTHER PERSONS BODY. Not eating them, or bits of them, but eating foodstuffs off of their skin.
2. The undercurrent to it is that its giving you the idea of carrying on beyond the foodstuffs and actually biting into their flesh, and eating them, or having them eating you. I only want to allude to this gently though, so that I can easily say the song is entirely about eating food off of a person and nothing to do with actually eating them.

For me, point 1 is included in seriousness as I do think eating food off other people is a good thing (ahem)... point 2 is just put in as a disruptive joke. But I want to make it sound like their both considered fun things...

Pretty complicated for a short song and I don't really have the talent to pull it off, but you've got to have dreams.

hmm, well in that case i'd say you're on the right track. maybe try to throw in some more graphic imagery, because generally, unless the disturbing part is pretty pronounced, it'll just take on the comedic feel that the rest of the song has.

I think it'll be fine if it comes across as all being comedic, because then the audience should be simultaneously tickled by the thought of eating food off another person and the thought of eating another person. The fact that they're were temporarily thinking of two very different things as being so similar should be disturbing enough to them, if they think back to it.

aha, good point. well make sure to post it up, because it should be funny as hell / disturbing / interesting to see how it turns out.

Cheers, remember to check the edits!

EDIT: I was doing a little Wiki searching on food-fetishes and cannibalism, to get ideas (for the song, right!) and I found this. EXTREMELY INTERESTING.

A well-documented case occurred in Chichi Jima 1945, when the Japanese soldiers killed, rationed and ate eight downed American airmen. (Ninth downed, Lt.JG George H. Bush, was picked by submarine USS Finback, and avoided the fate.)

In other words, the now ex-president was very nearly eaten by cannibalistic Japanese soldiers. Fascinating, eh?

Should I include this part too?

I'm hungry for your touch
I can't wait another minute
We know what's going down

My tongue upon your flesh
Upon your mouth, I want to be in it
Want to feel the flavour that abounds


Which I put in another thread... Too cannibal, maybe. Perhaps at the end of the song, with repetitive Tarzan-like drumming! Yessss!

Legendary lyrics. This would be legendary if it was performed.
