about

A funk workout from the rhythm track of a mistLY song recorded in 2007. Done in the reggae style of re-using backing tracks. Elements of this track came from "I like To be Haunted" from the 2007 classic album WE WUZ CURIOUS. New arrangement , instruments and vocal. New song!

A meditation on memory and popular culture. Be Bop giant Charlie Parker had a track called "drifitng on a reed". Dave Graney thought one day, "drifting donna reed" - why not? Donna Reed, an unrelated artist, she starred famously in "It's a Wonderful life" and her own 60s tv show. How to bring people together around shared imagery drifitng through their minds?

lyrics

yeah - Donna Reed
drifting - Donna Reed
aah don't worry
I'm before your time - don't worry! don't worry!
you don't wanna know you don't have to
I know

I'm not here
you're not either
you weren't there
neither was I
we're never gonna be on the same page

different time zones
we'll never mesh
not unless a bomb goes off or somethin'
maybe a fire
we're never gonna be on the same page
I'm before your time - its cool
I'm before your time - its cool
I'm before your time - its cool
I'm before your time - its cool

you weren't there!
wow! you missed quite a show!
never mind
you don't wanna know I got here late and I'm also old
what have we missed
drifting Donna Reed
drifting Donna Reed
what could that even mean?

drifitng Donna Reed
drifting Donna Reed
I'm puttin' BIRD in here
the heavy hitters
puttin' 'em to work

he was in the ground before I leapt into this world
BIRD
my father moaned my mother wept
BIRD blew

I'm before your time
its cool
dont worry
you don't wann know
you don't have to
I know
I'm before your time
its cool
drifitng Donna Reed
way way way way way back
way before my time
drifitng Donna Reed.
oh!
