Description
There are many newspapers that exist in the UK catering for different people and the Daily Mail and Daily Express are 2 papers that seem to be read by people who live in the leafy suburbs of this country and really don't have much to complain about in life. Yet they buy these papers with their out of stride front page headlines ( when most papers are reporting what's going on in the world, they seem obsessed with house prices, a cure for alzheimers, mutant african bees or the example in the photo) and seem to be addicted to ranting and shouting at the world when really they are a 'nation of little worries'
Hope that explains it.
This also has a 'reprise' at the end so hold your horses.
Hope you like it

Lyrics
Well you can't see the wood for the trees
Is there comfort found in your dis-ease
Are you safe inside your shelter
when you can't see the wood for the trees?

Nation of little worries
Deep in your little forest
Nation of little worries
Deep in your little forest

The headlines today fill you with dread
Take root and branch out inside your head
Are you safe inside your kingdom
from the danger that waits overseas?

Nation of little worries
Deep in your little forest
Nation of little worries
Deep in your little forest

A flood, a drought, then a plague on your houses
The value of life is in property
Are you safe in your shelter
when you can't see the wood for the trees

Nation of little worries
Deep in your little forest
Nation of little worries
Deep in your little forest

Definitely like it. Like the 6/4 grind on the song. Acoustic guitar work is exactly the right choice. I like the line, 'nation of little worries.... can relate as the sandwich nazis are running rampant over here as well. Seems like an entrepreneur could market Personal Salt Storage pocket bins to combat this attack on the Chip Shop world. Like the reprise as well....

Nation of little worries
The timing gives the song an insistent, engaging vibe. The sardonic lyrics are applicable to all "first world" countries and their "first world" problems. Fine arrangement and nicely balanced mix. The reprise adds time for reflection at the end and drives the absurdity home. Pro post. Thanks, Peter.

first world
You got it right there. I think that was part of what I was feeling was there are people in other parts of the world with live and death situations and the fine people of upstanding Tunbridge Wells are going mental and having their blood pressure raised because the EU wants people to have straight bananas.
Anyway, I digress, Thanks for dropping in and glad you liked it. Cheers

Incisive folk pop
Good track...a nice rounded production, good acoustic sound. Reminds a little of some XTC stuff. Catchy tune too!
Cheers

good song Brendan, really like the chorus section with the backing vocals and an all round catchy number with a great groove. Lovely tones on the acoustic.
Good to get a reprise too and I like the clear production, very nicely mixed.
Enjoyed!

Cool track
nicely put together. Good choices all the way - and I love the reprise - though the radio friendly version would need a crossing bridge of some sort to keep it from getting cut.

Nice one Mr B!
A touch 80s with that rhythm and the synth.

You certainly caught the zeitgeist with this.

I liked the idea of the reprise and it works really well. Has the sense of a post apocalyptic landscape where the man with no name stalks the surviving politicians and multi-national business leaders to exact revenge.

You have something to say and say it well. I like the driving beat. The reprise adds a different dimension, too. I like what you've done here.

the opening melody
reminded me of back when the decemberists were good, which can only be a good thing. the vocals remind me of pink floyd. also a good thing.

Overpowering band...
This is a solid rock number (whatever that means), but the message of the lyrics are buried by the excessive volume of the backup band. To my thinking, the words are the most important part of this song, so why not be sure they are as far upfront and clear as possible. (Or maybe it's just my rapidly failing hearing that is having such difficulty in understanding the lyrics.) Not much of a tune here: just repeating the same four bars and chords over and over again. Maybe that was the point: to drive the whole thing home without any thought of further development.
