Lyrics
YOU WOKE UP ON THE WRONG SIDE OF YOUR BED
YOU WOKE UP WITH A BIG KINK IN YOUR NECK
IT'S RAINING HARD OUTSIDE AND YOU FORGOT YOUR UMBRELLA
AND YOU THINK THAT YOU'VE GOT H1N1

HEY YOU
GET OVER IT
BECAUSE IT COULD BE WORSE
I KNOW YOU'RE FEELING LIKE YOU LOOK
SO DON'T STARE AT THE GROUND
AND KEEP YOUR CHIN UP

YOU'RE GIRLFRIEND TELLS YOU IT'S NOT YOU IT'S HER
SHE'D LOVE TO STAY YOUR FRIEND BUT NOT LOVER
YOU SAY OKAY CUZ THAT'S THE WAY IT GOES SOMETIMES
BUT INSIDE YOU ARE BUSTED APART

HEY YOU
GET OVER IT
BECAUSE IT COULD BE WORSE
I KNOW YOU'RE FEELING LIKE YOU LOOK
SO DON'T STARE AT THE GROUND

YOU'VE GOT TO TRY
TO SEE THE BRIGHTER SIDE

HOO HOO!

Keep Your Chin Up
Catchy. Good hook. And we need a song like this. Terrific vocals, especially like the harmonies in the chorus. Thumpy bass drives the song right along. Nice guitar work, good mix of tones.

Awesome solo man. Builds and ends the song perfectly. I always love the tone of your guitar solos too.
This is a supremely catchy number.

Jubilant doldrum-beater
Tough day on the Deathstar, eh?! (re: art.) Everything is in full-force here. That drum presence in the mix hits the spot. The chorus is hooky with deadly force. Your voice is full of power in that register. That great lead guitar playing is classic.Nice bass harmony notes -- and yeah, everyhting's audible, so the mastering's great, too. What a great tune to shake anyone (or at least any guy!) out of the navel-gazing doldrums. In a word: jubilant.

How much do I like this? I actually rated this song -- something I do at best 1 in 200 songs. And I gave you all 10s. Exceptional. To be critical: Is it really "groundbreaking" on the "originality/creativity" scale? Damned if I know. But I know what I like.

Excellent song Ridd
I really like this one - very Green Day. Probably a little hot in the mix department for me though, although it suits the genre I guess. Top solo and vocals.

I had friends on that Deathstar
Bouncy fun. This has a very Rivers Cuomo feel. You both rock the socks off the jocks. The last line in each verse is has a really loose, unexpected melody. Love that.

Friends On The Deathstar!!!
Eric,

Since I've known you, you've gotten funnier and funnier and funnier!

I'd have an easier time breathing if I were hit by a speeding Greyhound loaded with the next set of candidates for America's Biggest Losers!!

You kill me.

Credit
I can't take credit for the "I had friends on that Deathstar". I've seen that pic before with that as the caption. So whoever wrote that caption initially is actually getting funnier and funnier and funnier and should look out for that bus. BUT I am getting better looking. That's ALL me.
