Selena Sherwood This album makes me feel like a side character in an 80s horror flick with a bomb ass sound track Favorite track: The Squeeze*.

Shared Systems 有限 An absolute banger of an album, made even stronger by the bonus tracks and my personal favourite from the LP. So glad this got a reissue and on such a perfectly coloured vinyl. Favorite track: The Squeeze*.

randochi Retention/repeatability is quite high for this album. I love the upbeat, 80s, new wave vibe. Bad Dreams doesn't feel like any vaporwave album I've experienced before. Favorite track: Sleeping in the Hallway.

Proud 03:16
You know, the party's over but you've never found yourself alone walking home... not even when you're sober- and I know that you're a cowgirl like everybody else in town has said, in a stranger's bed you're everybody's girl. so how come I miss every time you call? (I can't get service) I can't be a part of this at all (I get so nervous) and if you don't believe me that I told you so, I'm a man, understand you don't belong inside this world I COULDN'T BE PROUDER WITHOUT YOU TONIGHT OH OH OH my only girl to hold. you thought you'd own me and never get caught and never get old but if you don't believe me well I-- I couldn't tell you no. understand, I'm a man that doesn't need another pet I COULDN'T BE PROUDER WITHOUT YOU TONIGHT OH OH OH

She's Gone 03:08
it feels like the same day as yesterday but I know that everything has changed I can't wrap my mind around what's ailing me I guess that I can't win at your own game I waited til she's gone forever til she's gone forever and ever alone stuck in the back with her accessories stuck back where no one else can claim I'm sure there's something everybody thinks of me but I don't think that I'm the one to blame I waited til she's gone forever til she's gone forever and ever how should I know if I'll keep going? (you're turning away) why should I care right now? (and my heart into stone) always known this day's been coming forever so, so long and I am waiting for you to call oh, I am waiting for you to call.

Call Me Now 03:36
call me now god that would be so cool call me now god that would be so cruel no just make it up just make it up for me cuz I don't care at all lead me on god that would be so fun put me down I'm just pleasure bound no just pack it up just pack it up and leave cuz I don't care at all care at all

Team Follow 04:21
we're getting lost tonight we're gonna lose our way seek out a guiding light to find a place to stay talk to the people we pass I won't remember a thing that they've said I don't know why I ask I heard a party exploding ahead so let's not wait at all we'll just ignore the girls it took them forever to call so we won't wait for them at all let's find some other girls and tell them we're lost tonight I'm getting lost tonight won't help you find your way instead I'm losing sight of all you tried to say follow the youthful hordes I can't remember the places I've been pile in through open doors I see a stranger is waving us in so let's not wait at all we'll just ignore the girls it took them forever to call so let's not wait for them at all we'll just ignore the girls forever-- ever.

Takeover 02:29
I took a look into your heart. I didn't see a thing I wanted there. Why do we wait so long, When we're just growing older? Why would you twist my arm? I shouldn't have ever told you You're taking me over. Impressed, I don't believe it You'll enslave me now. My best is not completed, but you'll wear me out. Why do we wait so long, when we're just growing older? Why would you twist my arm? I shouldn't have ever told you You're taking me over. Taking me over. So long...

Haunt Me 03:25
don't-- don't you give up on me this is all just a big bad dream you told me you want to celebrate so how come I feel this is all just a big bad dream? come back to haunt me it's not that easy to say goodbye come back to haunt me come here and break my heart one last time don't-- don't beg to question simple answers don't deserve a cause I loved you, but now I have to hate everything you did to earn applause come back to haunt me it's not that easy to say goodbye come back to haunt me come here and break by heart one last time one last time

I'm sorry I didn't mean to freak you out but its not my intention to do without don't worry I can make it up to you just want some sexual tension to get me through the day and how does it make her feel to have someone to name? and how does it make her feel to look at me again? again... (no) bring up the letter I wrote (no) not since the last time we spoke (yeah) and if its such a pain (oh yeah) then I can make it up to you (oh yeah) just need some attention to get me through okay and how does it make her feel to have someone to name? and how does it make her feel to look at me again? (look at me) again

love grows like tendrils for someone to spray but we float like missiles, we blow them away and I won't look back, don't want someone to say "he stole her heart just to throw it away" come to my window, I'll open the gate so many people with nothing to say but you make me smile and tears they dissipate I never meant to break your heart, but I did it anyway now that you've told me you love me it feels like I'm sleeping in the hallway now that you've told me you love me it feels like I'm sleeping in the hallway the hallway... and we're lonely now and we were born to fight and we're lonely now I feel it in my heart tonight cuz you make me cry, but tears they dissipate I never meant to break your heart but I did it anyway now that you've told me you love me it feels like I'm sleeping in the hallway now that you've told me you love me it feels like I'm sleeping in the hallway

The Squeeze* 02:31
living on the dark side I'm not your ordinary man I get the squeeze when you push me through I get so sick that I can't stand what did I do? what did I say to you? it's coming true.. all my nightmares why can't we just be without you dissecting me and to what degree should I pretend I care? taking it all in stride you keep these feelings turning on and on and on inside me show me what your walls can't hide I want to see what's going on and on and on behind them

about

Before George Clanton, before 100% Electronica, there was "Mirror Kisses." Mirror Kisses was a name I held onto for many years because I was afraid if I started going by my real name, I would lose all of my fan base. Imagine that!

"Bad Dreams" isn't technically the first "Mirror Kisses" release, but with my power to revise history, let's start here as the first *listenable* album.

This album was originally released in 2012, and has been available at mirrorkisses.bandcamp.com since that date. But, I've been surprised at how many people had never heard this music. So, if you are looking for "more music like George Clanton," this is pretty darn close.

Originally released in 2012, "Bad Dreams" was been remastered for 100% Electronica in 2016. Tracks 1-8 are the original tracklisting, ending with "Sleeping in the Hallway." After that the rest of the songs are bonus tracks, added to the 2016 remastered vinyl release, and available for streaming/download here.
