about

For a brief period, my friend at the time Brett Juilly and I formed a band, which Brett named "Rogue Tortoise". It was a return to my synth-pop "roots", having grown-up listening to bands like Devo, the B-52's, Thomas Dolby and the Human League.

These songs weren't all written under the banner of Rogue Tortoise (in fact, most were not) but they all share a similar tendency towards big, 80's era, synth arrangements.

Track Name: Make Love To Me Like A Computer '89
Suzy was a girl of nineteen (nineteen)
Fresh as a muffin never spoiled my man's hand
Danny sat at home played computer space invaders
Mom and dad hoped Danny would soon be a man

And though they never met Suzy dreamed a dream of Danny
He held her in his arms Suzy said to him

(Oh won't you) make love to me like a computer?
Turn me off then on we'll do it all over again
Make love to me like a computer
Computer chips can make no sin

Friday night Suzy was an ice ice skater (ice ice)
Every night she skated if momma let her 'til half-past ten
Mom and dad took Danny out he pleaded "don't make me go!"
Dad said "don't worry, you'll know what to do I told you when"

Danny hung on the rail thinking ROM wishing that he was home
Suzy hit his skate fell on her head she had a dream of him

(Oh won't you) make love to me like a computer?
Turn me off then on we'll do it all over again
Make love to me like a computer
Computer chips can make no sin

Suzy was a girl of nineteen (nineteen)
Fresh as a muffin never spoiled my man's hand
Danny sat at home just looked at his computer
Locked inside he knew was how to be a man
Locked inside were visions of Suzy's man

(Ah) be a man (be a man)
(Ah) be a man (be a man)
I'm going to do the best I can (be a man)
"Hello?" "Hello Danny, this is Suzy"

Make love to me like a computer
Turn me off then on we'll do it all over again
Make love to me like a computer
Computer chips can make no sin, sin, sin, sin, sin, no!

Make love to me like a computer
Turn me off then on we'll do it all over again
Make love to me like a computer
Make love to me
