Description
This is the first song in a concept series I'm calling "Stereo Instructions". Whenever you buy a new appliance, or in this case a stereo, the first page of the manual congratulates you on your decision to purchase this product. Why? I have no idea. Maybe to assuage your "buyer's remorse" so you'll continue to spend money. I think of this tune like an Eric Idle / Pythonesque number. Enjoy.

Lyrics
VERSE/CHORUS 1

D                                         E
Congratulations on your purchase!
D                                                        E
We think you've made an excellent choice
D                                      E
You're a sophisticated consumer
         G                        A
with a monetary voice (alt: with
reason to rejoice)

                     D                             E
Your friends and family will enjoy this
                     D                  E
You'll be the envy of your set
                     D                            E
You can be sure you spent your money well
            G                    A
there's nothing to regret


BRIDGE:

       Bm                   A
But if you have concerns about
         Bm                    A
your product you can call
                Bm                A
our representatives are standing by
    D                         E
to meet your every need


VERSE/CHORUS 2

                D                      E
Congratulations on your purchase!
                D                   E
It's of the highest quality
                      D                   E
In fact it was certifiably perfect
               G                A
when it left our factory



BRIDGE:

       Bm                   A
But now it's up to you to keep
         Bm                    A
your purchase problem free
                     Bm                        A
up blocks of time to read your man -
               
 D                       E
-ual need to read your warranty


                D                      E

Soundtrack for Consumerism
Very clever social satire for the consumer age. The soundtrack nicely reinforces the upbeat message.

Looking forward to when you get to the "Troubleshooting" pages!

Thanks for listening!
I hope I can get there. I'm stuck on the second song of the series, "Getting Started" - kind of a metaphor for losing your virginity, but I'm having problems making it work. May change the time signature and see if that works. Thanks again.

This reminds me of a band called "They Might be Giants" - sounds just like something they'd do. They were super quirky and I loved their music - this was short but fun - thanks!

A great compliment!
Thanks. I've loved TMBG since "Flood" came out. And as far as shortness goes, I consider my own fleeting attention span whenever I create anything new, ya know? Thanks for listening, man. Really.

I've been writing music for over three decades but I never recorded most of it - mostly because of laziness. But the technology makes it a lot easier now so I can enjoy the process if not the result! I'm looking to get some feedback so I can learn ... [see more]
