The spirit of collaboration has been strong here lately, and I thought I'd jump in and see how this goes.

I have a piece I've been working on that is nearly finished, but it needs some sort of vocal treatment. The working title is "Robot Love". Not very original, I know, but I had to call it something and "Number Q" didn't seem appropriate. The title can be changed, but the story cannot.

If you're up to the task, write some lyrics about sexy robot love. My initial thought was something in the realm of Barry White or Beck's "Debra", but I'm open for ideas. You can use my guitar melody lines (or not). I can possibly picture vocoder work, too. The song can be rearranged.

I hope this generates some positive response, but please realize that there can be only one final product so don't be offended if I don't choose your work.

Here is the link to an mp3. http://www.mediafire.com/listen/7744s79488xz9x6/Robot_Love.mp3 I know, I know. Mp3? This is just a sketch to represent an idea - just karaoke. We can work out the mix later.

Anyone interested?

"Love Robot" is an option as it's more personal. "Oooh, yah, I got a lurv robot". "Love Robot" is more generic. "Oh, yes, I'm well into some of that robot love". "Love Robot Number Q" scans well.

Here is what I came up with. As a start.

It's late
been down to the bar and back home
call that a date
a sad syndrome
walk the street where I live like a mouse
empty house
a catacomb.

Only one thing to do now
go back to square one
do what I know how
what I have always done
talk to the talking machine
it's a clean sexy scene
If you know what I mean
and I mean what I say
when I am led astray.

Well i just got in from New York City

Been thinking about how much have missed you,how much ive missed your love
And my feelings are just escalating yeah theyre on the up and up,
cant wait to see you Darling cant wait to feel your love.

Ive tried so hard to be without you and your early morning spark
Tried so hard being without you in the silence of the dark
Cant help thinking bout you and the light you shine my way
My feelings are programmed for you baby, to be with you every day
I gotta Robot love for you baby
and it just wont go away,
I gotta Robot Love for you baby
and i just wanna stay.

(would you like extra cheese with that?)ha Cheers John.

As i while away the hours just a staring at the clock

I'll Recharge you baby i'll do all i can
I'll be your Grease Monkey babe ill be your Iron Man

Like a plug in a socket
Like a caveman in a cave
We fit together baby
Like a Sausage in a microwave.

This is more what I had in mind. More cheese for sure - it should be amusing. Anything about grinding gears, antennas rising, charged batteries, discharging or hot oil, data banks overloaded, etc. would be alright.

I got Robot love for you baby and i just wanna stay.

This is beautiful. Is that the chorus? How is all of this translated melodically? Got a voice for it or just the words?

(Dr Who) I would avoid the word Exterminate unless you want to call it Darlek love. I wouldnt be sure on the melody, maybe a slow rap with a bit of a melodic chorus. Your music should be the guide not really sure.
Had another listen, I think at 1.36 maybe the Darlek voice for a verse.

@johnteddy: Just saw the additions to your lyrics. Marvelous.

Anybody with a smooth, deep voice want to try and help out with this? Mine is too squeeky.

In every project, there are a hundred others lurking, eh?
