  • Alan ODay - Undercover Angel

    3:31

    Cryin' on my pillow, lonely in my bed
    Then I heard a voice beside me, and she softly said
    Wonder is your night light, magic is your dream
    And as I held her, she said, see what I mean

    I said what? she said oo-oo-oo wee
    I said alright? she said, love me, love me love me

    Undercover angel, midnight fantasy
    I've never had a dream that made sweet love to me
    Undercover angel, answer to my prayer
    You made me know that there's a love for me
    Out there, somewhere
    Yeah somewhere

    Heavenly surrender, sweet afterglow
    Given up my heart to you, now angel don't go
    She said, go find the right one, love her and then
    When you look into her eyes, you'll see me again

    I said what? she said oo-oo-oo wee
    I said alright? she said, love me, love me love me

    Undercover angel, midnight fantasy
    I've never had a dream that made sweet love to me
    Undercover angel, answer to my prayer
    You made me know that there's a love for me
    Out there, somewhere
    Woh Somewhere

    Now you know my story, and girl if it's right
    I'm gonna take you in my arms and love you tonight
    Underneath the covers, the answer lies
    I'm lookin' for my angel in your sweet lovin' eyes

    She said what? I said oo-oo-oo wee
    She Said alright? I said, lay next to me
    She said what? I said oo-oo-oo wee
    She said alright? she said, love me, love me love me

    Undercover angel, midnight fantasy
    I've never had a dream that made sweet love to me
    Undercover angel, answer to my prayer
    You made me know that there's a love for me

    Love Me, love me love me

    Undercover angel, midnight fantasy
    I've never had a dream that made sweet love to me
    Undercover angel, answer to my prayer
    You made me know that there's a love for me
    Out there

    Out there

    Out there

    Out out there

    Woohh

    Out there

    Yeah out there

    Out there

  • ALAN ODAY - LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT

    3:59

    from album OH JOHNNY! (1979)

  • Alan ODay ~ Undercover Angel 1977 Disco Purrfection Version

    7:22

    Alan O'Day was born October 3, 1940 in Hollywood, California and was the only child of Earle and Jeannette O'Day. His parents both worked for the Pasadena Star News, his father as a photographer and his mother wrote articles in addition to being a school teacher. He became enamored of the xylophone at the age of six and idolized musician Spike Jones who specialized in novelty tunes. His grandmother bought him a piano when he was nine and Alan remembers it as being the most important gift anybody ever gave him. He learned to play the ukulele, began working with his own band, then moved on to rock and roll covers of Fats Domino, Elvis, Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis. A side project saw him experimenting with latin rhythms and soon he began writing his own music. In 1962 he worked with director and old high school buddy Arch Hall Jr and worked as musical director on Hall's Eegah which gained notoriety as one of the 50 Worst Films of All Time by film critic Michael Medved (and it is deliciously bad!) . Forming another band in 1965, Alan & Bob & Denny they appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show and became the backup band for Virginia O'Brien. Check out her video at Signed to Warner Bros in 1971 as a writer, he scored hits with Bobby Sherman (The Drum, #29 1971), Cher (Train Of Thought, #27, 1974), The Righteous Brothers (Rock & Roll Heaven, #3 1974) and Helen Reddy (Angie Baby, #1 1974) before turning his attentions to his own career with Undercover Angel, (#1 1977). His first solo LP issued in 1973, Caress Me Pretty Music did not deliver any hits and he focused on songwriting. His second LP became a reality when Warner Bros Records decided to sign him as the first recording artist on a new label imprint called Pacific that was to specialize in singer/songwriters. The first verse of the song that became to be known as Undercover Angel had been written when Alan remembered a song by Patti Dahlquist (Keep Our Love Alive, 1975) called He Did Me Wrong, But He Did Me Right that used the word undercover in a sly double entendre that fascinated him. Blending the reality with some fantasy like he did with Helen Reddy's Angie Baby was a genius move and he set about recording the song with legendary producer Tom Dowd. O'Day had a flare up of allergic reactions during the sessions due to his affliction with bronchial pneumonia when he was a child and the album was put on hold as Dowd departed after completing the basic tracks. Enter producer Steve Barri, who was then hot with the Theme From S.W.A.T. a #1 hit for Rhythm Heritage in February of 1976. Barri proclaimed the song a smash and kept the finished tracks as close to Alan's demo as possible. The spaced out echo was improvised in the studio when Alan manually ran the taped echo by hand speeding up and slowing it down a bit that gave the song its unique distorted sound. If you listen closely, you can hear Dolly Parton singing background vocals during the chorus. NOT!! its actually Carol Parks, according to Alan O'Day. My mistake! The single was released April 2, 1977 and hit #1 July 9 for one week. The official follow up Started Out Dancing, Ended Up Making Love stalled at #73 and became his last charting hit. His Skinny Girls single of 1980 became a regional hit in Australia, and then in 1983 co-wrote Your Eyes with Japanese artist Tatsuro Yamashita that was big in Japan. Building on his overseas success, he co-wrote six songs for Yamashita's follow up LP Big Wave and won Gold Disc Award for it. He was never able to duplicate his US pop success and turned his attentions to songwriting and in 1985 attached himself to the Muppet Babies animated telecast on Saturday mornings. He released one more album in 2013, Make Me Believe that contained Uh-Oh (What She Wants) and an unofficial NASCAR theme called NASCAR Crazy where he stepped into the producers chair. O'Day suffered from brain cancer that was diagnosed in late 2012 and he passed into the eternal on May 17, 2013.

  • ALAN ODAYS EASY EVIL ORIGINAL DEMO

    3:07

    I created this video in order to more easily share my original (audio) home demo of this song, that got a surprising number of cuts back in the day!

    The lyrics for Easy Evil were carefully crafted, but the
    inspiration was not subtle: a sexy little seductress who played
    me like a violin. I suffered later on for my addiction when
    the drug was no longer available, but man... I got some great
    song ideas out of the adventure!

    The tracks were recorded on a Sony reel-to-reel 1/4 4 track
    recorder, in my apartment bedroom at 323 3/4 N. Alexandria Ave
    in Los Angeles. Mic was a Shure PE54. A Wurlitzer Electric Piano,
    and a borrowed drum box called the Rhythm Ace, went direct. I
    think it was a predecessor to Roland. It had clunky punch buttons
    for the various rhythm pattern choices, and a start/stop foot-switch. [ see
    ]

    If memory serves me, this was my recording procedure: I first played
    the keyboard & drum box live direct on separate mono tracks, then
    physically reversed the tape reels so the drums would play backwards.
    I played the reversed drum track out of a speaker, while adding a
    live cymbal and the backward Wurlitzer in spots, miked & recorded
    the sounds from across the room. Then I reversed the tape reels
    back to normal & mixed the drums with their reverse room pre-verb
    tracks, along with the electric piano track, all to one new track.
    This left me three tracks to erase & use for lead & harmony vocals.
    The sucking reverse sound effect on the drums was kind of a turn on to
    me. Maybe it reminded me of... her?

    The money for my home studio equipment had come from Sidney Goldstein
    at E.H. Morris Music, the first publisher to sign me. He was a real
    song man, and taught me valuable lessons about lyrics, structure, &
    melody. I was the first writer he ever signed in some twenty years
    running the L.A. office, God bless him. Sidney treated me somewhat
    like a son. He agreed to split his publishing portion with Viva Music,
    circa 1970, so I'd be in a better position to get a recording deal.
    With Viva & E.H. Morris both plugging this demo, there were
    eventually around 50 releases on Easy Evil. You'll see some of the artists in this video. I thank them all!
    Alan

    Aside from a little brightening, the track remains as is, warts
    and all. Hope you enjoy it!
