Great song. I like the jazzy feel. It's like a fusion of jazz and blues. The arrangement is really good. The bass is has a nice tone. The guitar lead is really sweet. The backup vocals sound really nice.

    - Signal 30

Down low little blues / jazz with shades of Mose Allison and maybe Michael Frank, very nice changes and solid playing.

    - Jeff Maguire

TURTLENECK

Music and Lyrics by: Bill Dake
Copyright 2014: billdakemusic ASCAP


Just doin' nothin'
Kinda hangin' out
Ensconced on the couch
With a bag of Cheetos and a glass of stout
Punched in the numbers
Got my big screen to light
That's when it happened
That's when I first caught sight

of that

Honey-haired honey
Movin' slow and lookin' quick
I mean, this girl was packin'
All the proper arithmetic
Sure got my attention
All hands on deck
To check out the chick in the Turtleneck

I'm usually calm in most situations
Not one to get lost in a fantasy
But, in that sweet vision, seemed an invitation
To lose some dignity

It was just an ad
On the T 'n' V
What they were sellin'
Has eluded me
Might'a been somethin'
High brow or high tech
All I remember is that Turtleneck

Instrumental

I'm usually calm in most situations
Not one to get lost in a fantasy
But, in that sweet vision, seemed an invitation
To lose some dignity

Tryin' to seduce me
With all their glamorous noise
Get me to part with some of my green
For some of their toys
Wouldn't be a problem
I'd gladly mail 'em a check
If they'd just
Send me that chick in the Turtleneck
