Donovan & David Lynch - Gimme Some A That

David Lynch And Donovan Release Second Song & Video, “Gimme Some A That”

David Lynch asked if Donovan could write a song if he just give a title. Donovan answered, “Yeah… what have you got?”

David Lynch and Donovan today released another collaboration in the form of a psychedelic rock song and trippy video called “Gimme Some Of That.” The full proceeds of this release go to teaching TM (Transcendental Meditation) to Cork Students. Their follow-up single to “I Am The Shaman” from back in May was actually recorded first and here’s how it happened according to Donovan:

I sat before the mic in David’s studio and he said…

‘ Can you just write a song right now if I give you a title?’
‘ I said yeah… what have you got? ‘
David smiled and said OK … write a song called …

GIMME SOME A THAT

I strummed a chord on Kelly and composed Extempore… looking at Linda sitting next to David

‘ You got the stuff that’s made of dreams
Gimme Some A That
You got that Million Dollar smile
Gimme Some A That
You got the kiss that’s made of bliss
Gimme Some A That
You got the moonlight on The Nile ‘

David said…
‘ OK stop stop… let’s record it now! ‘

And we did, me full acoustic with verse after verse coming naturally … a bridge section appeared

‘ All that stuff you do I don’t know how you do
It’s got magic in my eye
An ‘ I wanna be always wanna be
The one to make you sigh ‘

Next next day David brought in Drummer Gerry Brown and Bass Ian Martin
When we had The Trio recorded … David and his Engineer Dean Hurley began their Extraordinary Audio Horripilation…

Donovan says ;
‘ I can only describe it to David in these words…
You have created a Soundscape Extraordinaire
Audio Sculpting Kelly to lead into the dark underscore of T.S.Eliot’s Post Industrial Wasteland
You … Photographer Painter Film-Maker Maestro at work
I hear in the deeper textures
The emotional inner landscape of decay
That youth in America and Europe experience
And wisely … you place me singing in full flight …
… My Hope-full Melancholy .. celebrating the perennial mystery of falling in love.
Linda … dancing through it all …
Beneath the Moonlight on The Nile ‘

David did a last mix which he described as ‘ High Octane ‘ and sent it to me to sing and Linda to dance.

Gimme Some A That Lyrics (by Donovan Leitch)

You got the stuff that’s made of dreams
Gimme Some A That
You got that million-dollar smile
Gimme Some A That
You got the kiss that’s made of Bliss
Gimme Some A That
You got the Moonlight on The Nile
Gimme Some A That
You got the eyes that shine like stars
Gimme Some A That
You got the Rock for ma Roll
Gimme Some A That
You make me tingle when we touch
Gimme Some A That
You got that secret in your soul
All that stuff you do I don’t know how you do
It’s got magic in my eye
An I wanna be always wanna be
The one to make you sigh
You got the wind in your hair
Gimme Some A That
You got the sparkle in your eye
Gimme Some A That
You got the way to make me laugh
Gimme Some A That
Now I know I can fly
Oh that thing you do you do I don’t know how you do
And it makes me feel all right
An I wanna be always wanna be
With you through the night
You got that enigmatic smile
Gimme Some A That
Like that chick in the Louvre
Gimme Some A That
You got the way to make me dance
Gimme Some A That
You got that move when we groove
Gimme Some A That
You got the stuff that’s made of dreams
Gimme Some A That
You got that million-dollar smile
Gimme Some A That
You got the kiss that’s made of Bliss
Gimme Some A That
You got the Moonlight on The Nile
Gimme Some A That
