To be completely honest I haven't watched the greatest hits dualdisc yet.. I know I suck! Blasphemy bla bla bla... the reason I'm writing this is because it would've come up, and I thought I'd get this out of the way

ANYWAY.. I had heard about All I want having been written for a Bad Religion song writing contest before but I never thought the lyrics and tempo would've been different - I'm retarded, shoot me, I don't care it just never crossed my mind. It never occurred to me that there was a whole other song in there, and I was thinking after having heard the chorus in this video
(ff to 2:00)

That it's fucking awesome! It is like a bad religion song, and actually a good bad religion song! Wouldn't it be awesome if we could get the "original lyric sheet" if the whole song exists like that, and maybe do like a BBS project, kinda acoustic like Dexter and Noodles are doing it in the video (so as to sound OK in some respects), and like a bunch of doing one line each and passing it around and doing the whole song? Obviously someone doing the acoustic guitar recording.. but it shouldn't be too difficult I don't think.

That's protocol

I think All I want is one of the best songs ever written EVAR EVARRR!!! The whole thing has followed me throughout my entire life, and the same lyrics and song applied and helped me through tough times in high school, at the university, in my rock n roll band, at work etc.

And I think this take on it is fucking brilliant.. it boggles the mind =)

What do you think?

This is a great idea, but the easiest part would be performing the song. Getting the original lyrics seems nearly impossible. My fear is that they have been destroyed. Then again, a good songwriter should never throw away lyrics, so I'm sure it's floating out there somewhere.

you know we could also have a competition, we kinda know what the songs about and know a part of the chorus so we could have a contest
"How would Dexter write Bad Religion lyrics" contest.. and try to use the reoccurring pictures, images, phrases like staring into the sun, rising and falling, and the mental imags and feelings he likes to mix in there.. =)

It would be fun

OMG, that is so similar to a contest I had been thinking of for another song! It's a very interesting concept, man. I can't write lyrics anywhere near as good as Dexter or Bad Religion, but I'd be up for this. :D

I can't write concept lyrics.. I think I've churned one or two (at least one) which I think is pretty impressive.. the hopeless song you heard on the bbs mix tape. But I've never tried to write like someone else. Like a satire or parody.. let alone write like someone else would be writing like someone else :)

If you know what I mean.. it gets confusing

I like this idea very much. I could grab a dictionary and show up with some BR-like lyrics, but that is not kinda the point, is it? :D But I am in for this project :)

Hey guys, ive got some recording equipment that gives fairly good audio quality. I could record some guitar/bass parts? Ive also got some drum software that makes convincing drum beats, could easlily make one to replicate the all i want drums. Thats if you wanted to make it a full band song or just leave it acoustic.

Let me know what you guys think :)

I think Bad Religion wouldn't play the same temp I think the temp should be as it is in the vid. Maybe we should ask Dexter :)

Yeah that sounds cool man :) Whenever you have time really, i can wait as long as it takes, see what these guys think?

What kinda recording software/hardware have you got?

Ha ha yeah we should ask Dexter! He'll probably say " Please don't ruin my songs n00bz!"
