about

The Garbage Remix album was lovingly put together by Michael Huber, who financed the entire project, album and remix album, and who was my partner for the entire recording and promotion period.
He mostly chose the remixers for this album and i was, and am, pleased with the resuilt. Of course Juniors Systems of silence mix is the bomb, as far as i'm concerned. I performed it recently in New York for the first time and it was just amazing to see the reactions this mix still inspires.
more:

Track Name: 18 Carat Garbage (Junior Vasquez Remix)
I don't like your party dress
cause this ain't no party
you're falling around as if you
you know where the ground is

you've seen me a thousand times
and you know what my name is
but if you were in my shoes you'd know
what the price of fame is

so I wait outside
to see what I can see
and I follow you in through the blinds
until you're part of me

and I'm waiting
yes I'm waiting

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

I won't take a photograph cause
nothing would be on it
and there ain't a dime store novel
that I could write from it

and I don't wanna sound insane and
I don't know what your game is
I just wanna seize your brain and
see where LA is

so lock the house, burn it
but save the silver tray
but please give daddy that knife back
and please throw the gun away

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

there are hollow sounds in the hall of fame
and they're haunting me
I like people
yeah I like people when they're on tv

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage, yeah
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

because I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize me
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
Track Name: Where Fools Rush In (Matty's II Deep Mix)
it was a different face and a different smile then
in a lover's land where lovers kiss, mm
it was another place and another time then
but the same old plans and promises

somewhere I don't know where
there's a place for lost time
I know I shouldn't go there but I

I wanna be where fools rush in
I wanna fall in love again
I wanna go back to the place where I believe in lost words
I wanna lay my soul bare
knowing it leads to nowhere
and when it's over will there be a next chance, be a next chance

looking back to where the end of time ends
never knowing what was really there, mm
where every end is like a blast of silence (yes it is)
that's defeating me from there to here

sometime I don't know when
I will claim what is mine
and I won't be denied when I say

I wanna be where fools rush in
I wanna fall in love again
I wanna run back to the place where I believe in lost words
I wanna lay my soul bare
knowing it leads to nowhere
and when it's over will there be a next chance, be a next chance

though love is lonely
I'm a fool on lover's lane
though it's hurtin' me so bad, only
here will I be safe (hey)

I wanna be where fools rush in
I wanna fall in love again
I wanna go back to the place where I believe in lost words
I wanna lay my soul bare
knowing it leads to nowhere
and when it's over will there be a next chance (the next chance)
be a next chance

I wanna be where fools rush in
I wanna fall in love again
I wanna run back to the place where I believe in lost words
I wanna stand in the door there
knowing it leads to nowhere
and when it's all over will there be a next chance (the next chance)
be a next chance

mm, give me one more chance
oh yes, one more chance
mm.. give me, give me

I wanna sing a song about pride
I wanna sing a song about pride
I wanna sing a song about pride, hey
I wanna sing a song about pride
I wanna sing a song about pride
I wanna sing a song about pride
I wanna sing a song about pride, hey
I wanna sing a song about pride
I wanna sing a song about pride
Track Name: I've Never Been To Memphis (Hacienda's Sideburns Mix)
I saw my face in the paper today
it said hello to the face that i saw at home
then I read a tale of a girl with my name
it was not the one that I know, no

you shook my hand and you said you understand
and you said that you know where I'm coming from
but the only place that I've ever been
is far, far from known

what you say about me
stabs me in the heart
what you read about me is a shot in the dark

I've never been to Memphis
I've never seen my good-luck star
I've never seen Las Vegas lights
laughing at the dark
I've never dragged the train of my dress
down Elvis Presley Boulevard
I've never been to Memphis
cross my heart, hm

I want to see my name in neon lights
cause the words that you write they don't last, my friends
they only shine a day at a time
and leave stains on my hands, well
so what's the use in rolling the dice
when you already know how it's gonna fall
you think that if you play your cards right
you might deal with us all

what're gonna do
when a seven falls
will the rolling thunder scatter all of your cards

I've never been to Memphis, no
I've never seen my good-luck star
I've never seen Las Vegas lights
laughing at the dark
I've never dragged the train of my dress
down Elvis Presley Boulevard
I've never been to Memphis
cross my heart, cross my heart

ooh yes
believe me

I've never been to Memphis, no no
I've never seen my good-luck star, baby
I wanna see Las Vegas lights, yeah
laughing at the dark
I've never dragged the train of my dress
down Elvis Presley Boulevard
I've never been to Memphis
cross my heart, cross my heart

I've never been to Memphis, no no no
I've never seen my good-luck star, yeah
I've never seen Las Vegas lights, yeah
laughing at the dark
I've never dragged the train of my dress
down Elvis Presley Boulevard (yeah)
I've never been to Memphis
cross my heart, yeah

I've never been to Memphis, no no
I've never seen my good-luck star (no no)
I've never seen Las Vegas lights, yeah
laughing at the dark
I've never dragged a train of my dress
through the Nevada desert sand
I've never been to Memphis
raise my hand, raise my hand, baby, yeah

tell it how it is, c'mon on
whoo!
cross my heart
whow! that's the one - that was the one

Track Name: Systems Of Silence (Oliver Moldan's Deep And Full Radio Edit)
you sit like a shadow inside a shadow, TV kills another soul
you don't know why the phone never rings on Sundays
the walls are alive from the light outside, it's like a film inside a film
the city's gonna teach you the part one day

and you shield your weakness, hey
but they know your secret

still I feel like dancing with you in systems of silence
we turn in a secret ballet all around and between the sounds and the sights
the fears will be fading away in systems of silence
I just wanna dance all the way right down to the core of the black and the white

you live for this city, breeding its illusions with your hands against the wall
another day has coached you into surrender
you're bleeding its emotions, walking its desires like a dance you can't perform
the city's gonna teach you the steps one day, yeah

and we've lost our senses, hey
but I'll take my chances

still I feel like dancing with you in systems of silence
we turn in a secret ballet all around and between the sounds and the sights
the fears will be fading away in systems of silence
I just wanna dance all the way right down to the core of the black and the white

and you freeze like they told you
and you give yourself up
and you reel spread-eagled (hey)

still I feel like dancing with you in systems of silence
we turn in a secret ballet all around and between the sounds and the sights
the fears will be fading away in systems of silence
I just wanna dance all the way right down to the core of the black and the white

still I feel like dancing with you in systems of silence
we turn in a secret ballet all around and between the sounds and the sights

laughing at the dark
I've never dragged the train of my dress
down Elvis Presley Boulevard
I've never been to Memphis
cross my heart, cross my heart

I've never been to Memphis, no no no
I've never seen my good-luck star, yeah
I've never seen Las Vegas lights, yeah
laughing at the dark
I've never dragged the train of my dress
down Elvis Presley Boulevard (yeah)
I've never been to Memphis
cross my heart, yeah

I've never been to Memphis, no no
I've never seen my good-luck star (no no)
I've never seen Las Vegas lights, yeah
laughing at the dark
I've never dragged a train of my dress
through the Nevada desert sand
I've never been to Memphis
raise my hand, raise my hand, baby, yeah

tell it how it is, c'mon on
whoo!
cross my heart
whow! that's the one - that was the one
