It's "A Joyful Noise"

Got a little more done on "Dance with the Devil". It's really coming a long. I've got the entire structure of the song laid out, and the electric and acoustic rhythm parts recorded. They feel like keepers.

I changed the key to A. Normally, A is a bad key for me to sing in, but this time the melody is fitting nicely in my range. It feels a lot better on the guitar, too. John will be surprised to read that... :-)

The lyrics are still troubling me, though. And I've finally figured out why. The first two verses are in past tense. "The devil CAME whispering in my ear...", "The music PLAYED, and we DANCED some more..." Then the chorus is in present tense: "I don't wanna dance with the devil anymore..."

The third verse is also in present tense, and then the outro choruses are the same.

The problem is that the first two verses feel like they should be in the past, and the reset should be in the present, but the transition is really really clumsy.

The harmonies that I've laid down for the chorus rock. I've got some pretty decent scratch vocals for the guide track, too. It'll all be re-recorded because there's some pitch problems, but it'll blend very nicely.
