11 O Clock Tick Tock

“11 O’Clock Tick Tock” was U2’s second single, released in 1980, prior to their debut album Boy. We really loved this song from the first time we heard it and we liked it to play live at the time of secondary school (late eighties!) with very poor gear… So we finally decided to make (with our best passion) a tribute to this song and to the U2 with this full cover. The version covered is the one on 1983 live album “Under A Blood Red Sky” and concert film “U2 Live at Red Rocks”.

For the Kemper Rig I used a Commercial Profile: VoxAC30 TAF Pack2 Profile: ‘A-Topboost Cranked’.¬† You can buy this profile here:¬†¬†¬† The Amp Factory Pack 2

Substitute only the Amp of my Rig (click below to download) with the Commercial one and use these settings (Gain 5.8 Def 5.4 Pick1.1 Clar 5.0 DirMix 0.4). The same information/settings are reported in the Rig on the various Tags of the temporary Amp inserted in the Rig (so you can easily download my Rig and read all from Rig Manager).

This one was used on the short cover I made [VoxAC30 TAF Pack2 Profile: ‘A-Topboost Cranked’ (Gain 5.8 Def 3.8 Pick1.1 Clar 5.8 DirMix 0.4)]:

11 O’Clock Tick Tock (Lyrics)

It’s cold outside¬†¬† It gets so hot in here
And the boys and girls collide To the music in my ear
Hear the children crying And I know it’s time to go
I hear the children crying Take me home

A painted face¬†¬† And I know we haven’t long
We thought that we have the answers
It was the questions we had wrong
Hear the children crying And I know it’s time to go

I hear the children crying Take me home
Say so, say so Say so, say so       Say it

Call out your name Call out each name
Call out your name Call out, you better call out
Call out, call out, call out
