I created this compilation to showcase different "pop" vocal & lyrical styles I can deliver. According to my definition of POP anyway! If you are a producer looking for guest vocals, here are some examples of top lines and melodies written to existing instrumentals.

about

Diana Rosalind Trimble New Orleans, Louisiana

After being discovered by Bobby McFerrin as a young vocal improviser in San Francisco, I continued to sing and write in experimental performance ensembles that remain important in the history of the 80s & 90s Bay Area arts scene, followed by one decade of tangling with the music biz in LA & NYC (read Little Tiger on here), then another in Europe, always making records of collabs along the way! ... more

Track Name: Youth feat. Dianimal - Fast Forward
my mamma told me
there'd be people just like you
my mamma tried to teach me
what good humans do

she said

"never tell a lie -
not if you think you'll get found out -
but always do back down
unless you're right without a doubt.
though you must try to tell the truth
always try to quell its hurt
and you must always wash your hands and face
when you been playin' in the dirt..."

fast forward
fast forward

Track Name: Julius Aitken feat. Dianimal - 1982
I remember you
In 1982
*
Do you remember ditching school on Fridays?
Standing by the freeway thumbing for a ride
With your camouflage shoes and polka dot bag
Flirting with teenage suicide...teenage suicide
*
Scratch our names in the pavement
Wet concrete equals
LOVE FOREVER!!!!
cross my heart and hope to die
cross this sidewalk to tomorrow
wondered then
would you be on the other...
*
Got Kraftwerk playing on ma Walkman stereo
Just a coupla months ago
Ya got it in Japan
Always the first to be in the know
From Eno to the Jam....Eno to the Jam
*
Scratch our names in the pavement
Wet concrete equals
LOVE FOREVER!!!!
cross my heart and hope to die
cross this sidewalk to tomorrow
wondered then
would you be on the other side

would you be on the other side?

Oh I remember you!

Track Name: Tycho (Chachi Jones Remix) feat. Dianimal - Send & Receive (Song of the Sea)
Oh Mermen oh whisper to me
Oh Mermen swim across the moonlit midnight sea
Oh Mermen whisper in the wind across the wa-ha-ha ha -aves
Oh Mermen sing my name I’ll be your su-su-su-su-sla-ave
Oh Mermen I stand here upon the lonely shore
Oh Mermen your arrival is what I am waiting for

Oh Mermen won’t you whisper in the wind a song for me?
Oh Mermen swim across the sea

Sea-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Sea-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


Oh Mermen how the waters roil and seethe
And how I wish beneath them I could breathe
To dive beside the dolphin with a pounding in my chest
Then to your castle in the sand to take watery rest
Oh Mermen won’t you change me
Like the vampire seals his love?
For one sea kiss from your salt lips
I’d gladly leave above

(to the)

Sea-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Sea-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Send and Receive
Are you reading me?
Cuz I'm sure I can hear your

Track Name: Craig Walker, Joules and Dianimal - Paris Snow (Mix Electronique)
From the Notre Dame
To the Seine
From the Notre Dame
In the rain
You said you'd be there
By the station
And I hung around
For far too long

And the dead bells sound
Like the sound of the rain
And I keep running away

Paris in the snow makes me feel
Alive again
Alive again

To the Gare du Nord
For a train
To the Gare du Nord
Leave again

Said you'd be there
At the station
But you disappeared
Like a song

And the dead bells sound
Like the sound of the train
And I keep running away

Paris in the snow makes me feel
Alive again
Alive again

And Paris in the snow
Is the greatest feeling I know
Paris in the winter
Brings me back to you

My eyes had fingers
That touched your face
That my eyes had fingers
To touch your grace

Minutes pass, hopes fade
Never thought I'd feel this way
After only a moment
Or two

Paris in the snow makes me feel
Alive again

After only a moment
Or two
Track Name: Julius Aitken feat. Dianimal - Final Notice
Half a lemon in the fridge and just a crust of bread
If I keep on this diet gonna wind up dead
Nothin’ tastes as bad as starvin’ fills
Take a deep breath and open up my bills

(Chorus)
I Got my final notice
They’re gonna cut me off!
Got my final notice
Gotta find a way to cough
It up
Gotta find a way to cough, cough, cough...

7 days to pay or my lights go out
Turn on the tap – you’d think we’re havin’ a drought
Tried to call for help, but I could have predicted
Incoming calls only cuz my line is restricted


Oh oh oh they never told me at college
Aint no market for my kind of knowledge
And nunna my skills got a fee to match
Don't wanna resort to the grab and snatch!

Reduced to smoking rollies, had to give up the drink
Can’t afford to get high, I better sit down and think
Playin’s too expensive, but workin’ doesn’t pay
And I’ll be sittin’ in the dark exactly one week from today

I got my final notice
They’re gonna cut me off!
Got my final notice
Gotta find a way to cough cough, cough,
It up
Gotta find a way to cough, cough, cough...

7 days to pay or my lights go out
Turn on the tap – you’d think we’re havin’ a drought
Tried to call for help, but I could have predicted
Incoming calls only cuz my line is restricted

Now I'm reduced to smoking rollies, had to give up the drink
Can’t afford to get high, I better sit down and think
Playin’s too expensive, but workin’ doesn’t pay
And I’ll be sittin’ in the dark exactly one week from today

I got my final notice
They’re gonna cut me off!
Got my final notice
Gotta find a way to cough cough, cough,
It up
Gotta find a way to cough, cough, cough, it up
Gotta find a way to cough, cough, cough
Track Name: Gold Lounge feat. Dianimal - "New Friend" (Aegean Summer - Cyclades Mix)
I got this new friend
she’s such a cool friend
like i always knew friend
there when i’m blue friend
true thru and thru friend
until the end friend
know how to flow and give and take
and sometimes bend friend

Not like those old friends
Always borrow never spend friends
Whose friendship seems to depend
On me as a means to an end

They sure know how to pretend
Those phony fair weather friends
But when the squeeze comes on
they ninja gone
with sudden matters to attend!

I’ve had to fight to defend
My piece of truth, my friend
But I’ve also had to learn
to lighten up lissen up
SHUT UP
and stop making sense

At times I’ve made amends
For when I’ve tended to blend
Factual with fictional features
that spin the version I wanna send

I’ve got this new friend

I’ve gone against the trends
Picked a side of the fence
Yet contend I intend rarely to offend
or truly get you to defend
I extend
the hand of friendship to you
again
my friend
If you could just suspend
Your judgement
Til the weekend
I recommend you
to bend it
to this tune that I penned

I got this new friend
she’s such a cool friend

true blue
to the end

know how to flow
and sometimes

bend
