A Sexy Man: About the Remix

Updated on November 6, 2015

A Sexy Man ( Remix of "Suits - Hardman Returns" by Chris Tyng)

"A Sexy Man" is a music video remix of a Chris Tyng instrumental.I will start with a description of the remix,followed by the song lyrics and the video.

After repeated listening to the original track, I had no desire to change the arrangement. I love the hypnotic nature of the composition, and the restraint that was used in the orchestration. My first decision was to compose a spoken word to add to Tyng's beautiful instrumental. Since I often use an anarchistic approach to lyrical and musical composition,I simply "allowed" the lyric to compose itself,rather than first deciding upon a storyline, and then using various literary devices to put it all together.

Of course,I do use a more structured approach at times,but overall,unless there is a particular theoretical aspect of the musical or literary form that I want to explore,I often find it to be a cumbersome approach. I liken it to a man who is trying to paint a picture of a running brook while sitting beside it with his eyes closed.

Once we have learned how to "open our eyes" and connect with the anarchistic matrix that surrounds us,it is simply a matter of filtering out what we don't want to use. Rather than tax our creative mind with the burden of always starting from scratch,we simply use our imagination and creativity to copy, and then structure what we are actually looking at.

Audio Remix

Here is a list of what I added to the original audio track:

• lyrics and vocal performance

• Added background vocal chorus_______________ 1:51

• Added short reverse guitar solo ________________1:43

• Added sample of woman saying:"Oh My God" _____1:56

• added short dissonant synth texture near end ______3:42

Video Remix

The original video consists of a single picture of two men standing in suits throughout the video.I decided to leave it this way, and then simply weave video clips around it. The Iggy Pop clips and the pretty model (Sexy Car Wash) clips are the most frequently used.I use two short clips of snowstorms which adds a nice bridge to the video, which then moves briefly into a lighthouse scene. I also have included a short video loop of a fight scene from the 1945 classic:"Fog Island".

A Sexy Man: The Lyrics

If a man sleeps with 5 different women; each on more than one occasion, and after the first occasion:

• 2 of the women decide that they truly love the man
• two decide that they truly hate him
• and one is decidedly undecided

You might ask yourself: What does this mean?
And so, I will tell you:


The fact that all of the women slept with this man; in spite of their different feelings toward him; each on more than one occasion,means that this man was an occasionally very sexy man, a man with sufficient masculine capabilities; with no apparent lack of machismo, or motivation.

But most importantly,the behavior of the women provides us with empirical evidence that there are two kinds of men. One kind is a provider of material things, and he is very important.But there is another kind of man, and he is just as important, because he a provider of the soul.

Oh! Oh! Oh!

She wanna Sexy Man

Oh! Oh! Oh!

She wanna Sexy Man

Oh! Oh! Oh!

Talkin' 'bout the Sexy Man

Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!

But life is not so easy for the sexy man.The sexy man is like the little squirrel, he must learn to run very very fast,and he must become accustomed to rapid eye and head movements.And he must be like the Ram,for he must be able to withstand a heavy blow and still continue on, up the mountain.

Many women will say that in one man they have found both the provider of material things, and the provider of the soul. But this is only fantasy and wishful thinking.The provider of material things,cannot defy the Law of Gravity.The very nature of his purpose requires that he must become ...too familar.

But the sexy man is the one that she will always miss; he is the one that will never become too familiar, or too accessible; Thus, he will always be ... a sexy man.

      I love that outlook. And it is so true.... Why do we all find it so easy to forget that perspective when reaching for "success"...

      Amie,

      Lol,I think you just accused me of being fat! But seriously, if you gave me a million dollars today, I would happily spend it.But it is inevitable, that one day all the money would be gone and forgotten.But it will not be so easy to forget the stranger who said,"The sun never stopped shining ... it just went behind a cloud".

      wrenchbiscuit - this is so creative, I don't even know what to say. I can't imagine having so much creative energy and such pointed convictions to carry around all the time. It was really original - like literary and musical artistry all in one...

      lovemychris,

      Yes,it is peculiar that humans like storytelling so much.I can't imagine any other species that does this, unless they do it telepathically.We can only wonder what a higher life form might do to entertain itself.Perhaps create an entire world,wind it up,and then watch it go.

      Thoughts set to music....not necessarily poetry. Lou Reed also does this....and hip hop built on clever word play.

      New version of an ancient art: storytelling

      Satisfying the soul IS incompatible with satisfying a bank account.That is what Buddha discovered, and what Jesus taught. "Where your heart is, there shall your treasure be" And women do yearn for a soul mate. Thats why the church tells you to marry Christ. Jesus becomes your secret lover.....the perfect man.

      The sexy man who is always unattainable in the flesh.

      Nice work wrench.....poetry set to music. Haiku, American style.

      lovemychris,

      Thank you for the great compliment! " ... Crazy River" is just one of many great works Robertson has delivered.It is one of my all time favorites.His artistry has always shined, whether in a group, or a solo context.
