Can't Win Em All
Thought process during this day:
--I have a little extra money in my pocket, I should download some new music into my Itunes to listen to while traveling next week.
--Elliott Yamin has released a cd! I love Elliott Yamin. I voted for him on American Idol.
--I don't like the cover art. I'm hyper critical about cover art, though.
--Nice beat on this first song.
--Same sound on this second song.
--Does anyone use real drums in the recording studio anymore? Is everything electronic and synthesized? It's so sterile.
--Runs don't make a song.
--All these songs sound the same. I wish it were just Elliott and a three piece combo. Him with a piano, bass and drums would be hot.
--Some of these lyrics are pedestrian.
--Why does this sound like so many of the r&b divas and divos? He's a white boy with his own sound.
--Why's he screaming? He's already got the job.
--That's why he's screaming. All these generic, homogenized arrangements are being blared so loudly that he probably has to put his lips right on the mic while singing.
--Song FOR you. The song is called A Song FOR you. The lyric is 'But we're alone now and I'm singin this song for you.' I don't think Leon Russell would appreciate the change in that lyric; it changes to meaning, the intent of the lyric. Song FOR you, not to you.
--GOD DAMN IT.
--Ten bucks and all those gigs wasted.
--Better luck next time. I know I'll buy that cd, too. I just ...
--GOD DAMN IT
