Stock Music track: 10,000 Miles Away

Funky grooving blues with humorously engaging lyrics about a guy tuning out his nagging woman. Groovy saxophone duet compliments each verse and chorus. Medium fast up-tempo feel. Driving tenor sax and piano solos. Clever snappy outro. Catchy, fun, feel-good blues with a memorable hook.

Lyrics: Your lips are moving but I don't hear a word
They're flapping and flapping like the wings of a bird
Your nostrils are flaring; you're ready to fight
Looks like a Pier Sixer tonight

But I've had a hard day; work was really a bear
You may think I'm listening but I really don't care
I'm projecting myself far from here
And I'm getting myself a beer

You might as well be 10,000 miles away
You might as well be 10,000 miles away
I'm at the top of the mountain
You're at the bottom of the sea
And you ain't even bothering me

I've heard you complain enough to already know
Every boring old line in this one woman show
I've listened to you snarl, scold, and hiss
So you might want to listen to this

You might as well be 10,000 miles away
You might as well be 10,000 miles away
I'm locking all the doors
And throwing out the key
So you ain't even bothering me

You might as well be 10,000 miles away
You might as well be 10,000 miles away
I'm at the top of the mountain
You're at the bottom of the sea
And you ain't even bothering me

You might as well be 10,000 miles away
You might as well be 10,000 miles away
You might as well be 10,000 miles away
You might as well be 9,999 miles away
About the Artist
Buddy Moncrief Buddy Moncrief

Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnny Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.

On his latest full-length release "We Can't Party Like We Used To" (2009 Acoustic SwaneeLand), Swanson pounds out 12 original vocal jazz cuts with a cool retro vibe. His bluesy vocals and tasty guitar licks remind of crooners past and present - Sinatra, Cole, John Pizzarelli come to mind - but his clever songwriting has a leaner, edgier feel to it that puts him squarely in the current century.
