Description
Sorry I said the "S" word, therefore the explicit content is flagged.

I am making real breakthroughs on just about everything. I still have a long way to go but at the same time I have come a long way too.

I had a little time to work on some songs so this song is being released shortly after the last. I know that here on MJ that will surely get people burned out on your music.


Equipment list:
PRS Mira Guitar
Mesa Boogie Express 5/50 amp
American Deluxe Fender P Bass
Reasons drum generator for programming drums. (No loops)

Lyrics
Kicked in the Teeth

So you think that nothing’s going to happen that’ll take your life of ease
You’ll sit around just thinking that everything’s a breeze
You’ll find yourself awakened to
The fact that that aint true
Everything will change on you
You won’t know what to do
It won’t be just the way you please
Because life’s just a kick in the teeth

First you’ll lose your job and then you’ll probably lose your house
Say good bye to the BMW and your leather couch
Your nightmare starts right now
It’ll only get much worse
Next thing you’re on food stamps
Got to tighten up the purse
It won’t be just the way you please
Because life’s just a kick in the teeth

Yeah a kick in the teeth… yeah
Yeah a kick in the teeth… Yeah


So you put your happiness on all those material things
Then you base your status on the vision that it brings
Your only worry about
What the neighbors think
That life is golden and
Your shit doesn’t stink
It won’t be just the way you please
Because life’s just a kick in the teeth

Well
As you tagged it explicit I can get away with saying this fucking rocks...
The intro is brilliant and i love when the bass takes over. Also dig the space you put the drums in.
Your voice is great but when it's in harmony it's really great.
Super chorus and another highlight before the solo..... Which is also a highlight.
This is a song full of highlights. Just thought I'd highlight that.

Fucking A
Thanks Ed! You are too kind. I think that the song has really low lows and semi low lows. Therefore the semi lows seem like highlights. Thanks always for your encouragement.

Hey, are you going to post Angie here?

The track is killer, I listened via my iPhone & it sounded awesome. Now listening through headphones and wow, this rocks man! Life can be a kick in the a$$ too, but teeth work!

Dig the lyrics & your singing is great. Excellent tune, rarrrrrrr!

Thanks Dani you sweetie!
What's funny is that life is pretty good for me right now. I'm having to work too much, but other than that all is really good. Why am I writing so many incredibly negative songs?

You rock!!!

i love the chorus. "Life's just a kick in the teeth". Oh yeah it is. At least part of the time. Reconcile yourself to that and you're half way to happiness. Guitar/bass riffing sounds great man. You're really dialing in the sound. I went out and threw megadeath into pandora to hear some of that good old 80's metal and you're sounding pretty close dude. The solo in this one is especially good. My one recommendation is to add another rhythm track, played just a little different, mixed to the opposite ear, maybe at a lower volume. Spreads the sound out.

Thanks man!
Are you saying that I should add an additional rythm riff during the solo to offset the held on chords?

I really appreciate your suggestions. Thanks man! It helps a lot.

A Kick in the Teeth
Awesome job man! Bass sounds great, great shreddage on the guitar, drums sound very realistic. And it is a kick in the teeth especially lately.

Thanks dave
the one fear I have is if I start making the drums too over the top. If I do you'll have to say so.

Change is stellar; you guys killed it on that one.

Yes
As they used to say in the big band era, this is a "killer-diller!" The opening certainly set the stage for what followed---this is a knockout Mike!!!

kick in the teeth
yeah mike. but where's the happy ending? what about self-actualisation and awareness. your songs are so bleak and existential, bereft of hope and the utopian idyll. downer. perfect production as always....if you like that motorhead sound. you had to go back there didn't you....back to the motorhead sound...just to show everyone what a tough free-climber you are. well i don't buy it...you dipped your toe in the water and there's no going back....you're a folk hero waiting to be realised. get your acoustic guitar out man and give the world what it really wants. bruce springsteen...look what you've done to america.

Julian! ROFL!
Utopian Idyll? I couldn't find that term on the internet... When I google it all that comes up are condom ads for the Chinese.

You got me pegged man! Tonight I'm going to sit right down, strum on the acoustic and write my first folk song super hit. It'll be awesome!

You are right about the depressing topics of late. Hell, I'm not even depressed. I think that stems from playing in minor major major progressions all the time. It sets a sad mood.

Damn this rocks! Doing what you do best brother... Blowing the rest of us away. Ha ha...

Love it all, but I especially dig that change-up midway followed by the git soloing. SMOKIN"!!!

I'm too damned sloppy to be blowing any of you guys away. You're all way to pro for that to happen. I'm mostly just a raving lunatic with a loud amp.

Thanks for the listen. Let's rock one out sometime!

Lighten up dude!
No ... don't lighten up. Just keep comin up with good music. Say what you feel.
In some small way the lyrics get in their own way at the beginning of the first verse. I wonder if they would work pared down a bit.
"You think nothin' will happen to take your life of ease
You sit around thinkin' ... life's a breeze"

Just a suggestion..

fasteddie said 2667 days ago (July 3rd, 2010)
Thanks for the
suggestion. I am guilty of getting ahead of the meter of the song a lot. When in doubt I should have fewer words and hold on them rather than trying to pack too many into a little space.

WAR! is great man!
