Jimmy Colored Glasses (Make It Good Mix)

from Nine Rays Of Moonshine by Tadpoles



Track 5 is Jimmy Colored Glasses. This version is an alternate, spacier mix we did with Gene Holder of the dB’s in Hoboken, and taken from The Whirlaway Sessions album. Jimmy was always an in-band euphemism that we used in a variety of ways, including using it as our faux record label manager. Just a little tune about perspective.


Never thought that you'd feel so sad

Never wanted anything you had

And its time that you learned to see

It's enough to just believe

We all will pass this way

No one makes us stay

If there's any way to make it good

I think that you should
