The foundation of the Hey! A Hit Record! collaboration. Listen with your ears, preferably, even though the eyes may have it, the nose may know it and the tongue may lash it.

Hi! I'm Spaceship. Everyone say, "Hi, Spaceship!" ...Or not.
I recorded a upbeat, 1960s-influenced song many ages ago and never got around to putting words to it. It has acoustic guitars, organ, piano, drums, tambourine, timpani, and hand claps. Here's hoping someone will have an idea of what to do with it.
So...download it now! Hurry! Listen to it, then proceed to either a. fall asleep, or b. fall down this rabbit hole of a collaboration.
Some background info: when I thought of the tune, I was on the EL train in Chicago, listening to a lady talking about all of the layoffs at the steel mills in the 1980s, and how she had been there with the picket lines. I kept looking out the window of the train as she talked. I wasn't ignoring her, but as it was such a beautiful day, all I could think was, "Today is as nice a day as any to get laid off." And thus, a song was born.
Anyway, I'm picturing a short music video, of sorts, as the final result. Perhaps an entire story told in the span of three and a half minutes. Whatever you can think of, do it and send it, if the spirit moves you. Inject a bit of yourself into the mix and see what happens.
So! If you feel inspired, send any and all lyrical, musical and visual ideas this way. Let's do this thing!
