Gecko - Safest Bet

I’m sure you’ve seen me praise these guys before but I just have to do it one more time because this bunch is just the best! Earlier this year I was in the studio with Gecko recording a few songs for their debut album and this is the second single which the band have decided to give out for FREE as a download on 19th of September!

I’ve been lucky to have been chosen to record and mix this single.¬†Full credits below.

This is a really cool video shot in hi-def. Make sure you watch it in 720p and don’t forget to click the Like button!!!

Lyrics

Who needs reasoning, just dance through the scenery
Turn your back on logic face-plant into greenery
Never met a dance move I haven’t kept in touch with
Met up with, occasionally in public in London
So you’re a tortoise it’s your first day at school
Understandably you wanna make friends
But you’ve gotta come out of your shell
Else you might be mistaken for an ornament

I realise that I’m not your safest bet
If you make a list, then I’ll see what I can get
You can take your pick
‘Til there’s noone left around
I prefer the rhythm we’ve found
We’ve found

I realise that I’m probably not your safest bet
Like a tigers not the safest pet
It’s arrival caused panic
An unsuitable animal for housing
Unfit for its surroundings
Accounting for this altogether unsuccessful outing
Especially when he started growling
But I’d proudly
Outrun a cheetah for your undivided attention
Can’t promise that I’d beat her but I’d lack no intention
So lets dance beneath the sunset
Drive away the upset
I’m not your safest ticket but the scenic routes astounding

I realise that I’m not your safest bet
If you make a list, then I’ll see what I can get
You can take your pick
‘Til there’s noone left around
I prefer the rhythm we’ve found
We’ve found
