Chicago Voice Exchange Original Songs

CVX has written a number of original songs. You can find some of these original songs on our albums; here's a list of some of the original songs that we've put together (at least the ones we'll admit to)...

The Beat Goes On
Lyrics: Peter Harlan & CVX
Music: Peter Harlan & CVX
Album: Inner Child Proof

Description: The Beat Goes On is a whimsical song of life and growing up. The lyrics make most of us sick, but the music is pretty engaging.

Sample: .WAV format

 

Crocodile Tears
Lyrics: John Milne
Music: John Milne
Album: Live From Paris

Description: Crocodile Tears is smoooov.  With many o's.  Check out the flugelhorn solo by Joe, and the "bum-bum's" by John.

High And Lonesome
Lyrics: John Milne
Music: John Milne
Album: Inner Child Proof

Description: High and Lonesome is a song about the cruelties of alcohol and despair. Enjoy!

 

I Hear The Fat Lady Singing
Lyrics: John Milne
Music: John Milne
Album: Live From Paris

Description: This song is a visual spectacular, a cross between country and opera.

The IHOP Song
Lyrics: Andrew Blendermann
Music: Andrew Blendermann
Album: Live From Paris

Description: This song is a Middle Eastern / Big Band Jazz song about food.

Sample: Real Audio format

 

Inertiaville
Lyrics: Joe Dennis & CVX
Music: Ted Schillinger & Joe Dennis
Album: Inner Child Proof

Description: Inertiaville is a song about nothing.

It's Only Life
Lyrics: Tim Eaton & CVX
Music: Tim Eaton & CVX
Album: Inner Child Proof

Description: This song is about not taking yourself too seriously -- a must-hear if you aspire to higher levels of zen.

 

Jane And Me
Lyrics: Joe Dennis & CVX
Music: Joe Dennis & CVX
Album: (unrecorded)

Description: Jane and Me is a relatively new song that we haven't fully learnt yet. We may not, if we write some better songs.

Mexican Polka
Lyrics: Ted Schillinger, Joe Dennis, & CVX
Music: Ted Schillinger
Album: Inner Child Proof

Description: This is a wild one.

Sample: .WAV format

 

Raccoon
Lyrics:
Joe Dennis & CVX
Music: Joe Dennis & CVX
Album:
Live From Paris

Description: Raccoon has a latin feel, and is about smacking small mammals and lawyers with cleaning equipment.  We suspect a late-night burrito at the Dennis household is to blame.

Rochambeau
Lyrics: Ted Schillinger, Joe Dennis, & CVX
Music: Ted Schillinger
Album: Inner Child Proof

Description: Tim and Joe haven't finished the song yet, so it really shouldn't be listed here. Oh what the heck, we'll probably learn it. It is about that Rock-Paper-Scissors game.

 

Rooftop Dancing
Lyrics:
Ted Schillinger & CVX
Music: Ted Schillinger
Album:
Inner Child Proof

Description: This is a very sweet song about jumping off of buildings.

Sample: .WAV format

So Far
Lyrics: John Milne
Music: John Milne
Album: Live From Paris

Description: A Beach Boys "tribute" - Brian Wilson is turning over in his sandbox.  So Far actually won Best Original Song at both the Regional and National levels of the Harmony Sweepstakes.

 

World's Drunkest Man
Lyrics: John Milne
Music: John Milne
Album: (Unrecorded)

Description: This is another John Milne song. It is about his vacation last year. Considering the subject matter (setting "a new world's record for drinking"), you may never hear it except in a bar.

Yuppie Refugee
Lyrics:
Peter Harlan & CVX
Music: Peter Harlan & CVX
Album: Inner Child Proof

Description: This song has a good sound, but we don't do it much any more because the lyrics are getting dated ("I suffered through the eighties...").
