On this reggae-ish/funk tune written by John Martinez in 1994, I decided to put my trademark sounds/lines/vocal hooks. John commented that my vocals sounded Euro-pop ala Basia, so I finished it in that vein.

I re-purposed some lyrics about prime numbers I had written awhile ago. Prime numbers are natural numbers with only two distinct
divisors. The idea of such a phenomenon has influenced artists French composer Messiaen and films such as The Mirror Has Two Faces”. To pun on the idea of one’s main squeeze the lyrics say “Baby you’re my prime number”.

My idea of my voice is as an instrument, hence the arrangement.

 

Written & produced by John Martinez / Shueh-li Ong. Lyrics by Shueh-li Ong. Boo Massey on guitar.

There is no law of attraction [Over]
Division impossible, But itself [Over and over]
It's not simply what you see
It's not always what you find [Over and over, again]
