Wild speculation here, but maybe it's the track for Record Store Day? (if it will be a new track)

I'm presuming that's why Bosco brought it up.

^ good to see you're really getting stuck into the detective work, Bosco!
Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to listen to every track from Mr Ellison/Soul Brothers Six from 1966 to 2008 - for Chemical research purposes. Album tracks, B-sides - the lot. I mean some of this stuff isn't even on Spotify never mind YouTube, but I'm putting my faith in you on this!

I honsetly hope your suggested track ain't it. Other than the synth bass, there is absolutely nothing on there that floats my boat.
The good news is that there's some mighty fine stuff from earlier in his career. Like this track below. Oh my god that's the funky shit.

JOHN ELLISON - You've Got To Have Rhythm
DON'T. LOOK. DOWN.

Yeah, that intro to the track you posted sounds like it has a lot of looping potential.

There really is a bunch to choose from (albeit, not all conveniently available), and I don't really know what particular bit either lyrically or sound wise they might be searching for. So I'll refrain from making any further assumptions until we have some more bread crumbs to follow.

I will say, "Some Kind of Wonderful" is quite the legacy for Willie Ellison. Although I'm more fimiliar with Grand Funk Railroad's version, I can't tell you how many times I've heard that song.

The darkness that you fear seems to have lyrics now? Weird! The track is not even out yet!

How does that happen?
This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.

Ohhhhh, these lyrics. Where did they come from? Well if they're right then it must be I'll Be Loving You.



BIG EDIT. Also one of my fellow countrymen(!) in the Netherlands has pretty much confirmed that The Darkness That You Fear (full title) is indeed this year's Chemical RSD release. TBH I'm not sure why the title is embargoed everywhere else...

CLICK.

I'm hoping that this will be available one way or another for non-vinyl-collecting folks. I'd happily buy a CD at the record store.

Well, if that is the actual lyrics and the aptly titled Soul Brothers Six track is where we presume part of the lyrics and or music was borrowed, there is still remaining lyrics and vocal contribution unaccounted for. So either Tom is unleashing the golden pipes, or something is missing, right?

This likely could be taking the WGTT route where the sample or vocal was interpolated by another vocalist.

Semi related but I wonder if this is a part of that
I can't take the hearbreak of you leaving me again
And I'm not the one I was back then, no, no, no, no
One thing I can't take is to sit home all alone
Do what you like, my dear, but I'm not staying home

Definitely. I certainly expect that.

Also, I think I found a big piece...

Spoiler


Lyrics include:

"Let your heart see the colors all around you"
"And the darkness that you fear will disappear"
"Let your heart see thе colors"

This forum is going to recreate the track from name and samples before it is even released.
Can you imagine ..... an extra-terrestrial disc jockey? Like, listening to radio waves from space? It was unbelievable!

Great spot Bosco. I'm surprised that Hal Yoergler doesn't get a writing credit though...

For the B-side (ahh, B-sides...) I would like the Chems to sample the chorus from this. [Also, they're meant to be British?]

Would love to hear the efforts of our more talented music makers here on the forum. Preferably incorporating the flutes at 1.33 in Bosco's clip (The Test's flutes are great, right?). Maybe some "real" drums like on the Noel Collabs/I'll See You There. Lots of psychedelic shit with those rising noises that Tom likes so much.
Just follow the lyrics for a rough template and go nuts!

Do you need to cite/credit if you partially use lyrics from a track but not reuse any musical elements from it?

I'm thinking like the track "Snow" here. Jackie Wilson's - [Your Love Keeps Lifting Me] Higher and Higher, but no musical elements are taken.

From what I can tell, they have used elements of the Bugaloos tune. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm refraining to listen to the preview. Does any Willie John Ellison elements appear? Can we nail that one down, too?

and great call on Peppermint Patty clip, HSTN! I'm pretty psyched for that majestic fantasy type sound.

What are you like? Go on!! Yes, it's literally the words "I'll be loving you, yes I will" from my embed in repy #46 above. As per that lyrics website. Sounds like a direct sample from Soul Brothers Six. Sounds like a recreation of the Bugaloos part.
