A Sexy Man: About the Remix
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.
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
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.
