Description
If it has feathery yellow hair and a orange beak, and tweets a lot. Then it must be The Canary King

it has been quite a while since i have recorded a new song. after spending a few months on my alter ego band "Horses Undecided" album, Pulling Down The Universe, and getting it out on all music download sites i kinda suffered from ear fatigue.

Lyrics
The Canary King

a shallow kind of person and a stubborn fool
filling in holes on the surface of the moon
always says I hear things should I be afraid
nowhere was ever close to here

I have a feeling that the dominos are going to fall
one by one the dominos will fall to there fate


fearful minds see and hear conspiracy
a cult of personality is a social disease
hollowed out dreams of the canary king
grab his talons and clip his wings

I have a feeling that the dominos are going to fall
one by one the dominos will fall to there fate

a stain on the wall a stain on his face
always blame the man that disagrees
when i felt the heat wave I knew who to blame
all fingers point to the canary king

I have a feeling that the dominos are going to fall
one by one the dominos will fall to there fate

Mean Mister Mustard
is my personal favourite pet name for Canaryman.
Nice to see/hear you back at MJ Vic. I like this (although I'd obviously prefer a real bass track) - very Bowie-esque, and tangential enough in the lyrics department to avoid being too "in-yer-face".
Looking forward to more from you.
How's the CD going? I've mostly found "releasing" my collections of songs to be a little underwhelming - but what else can we do? Any sites you found especially useful?
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

thanks neil
ha, but it is a real bass.
true i didn't want to be so in your face on the lyrics in case he tried to sue me or claim it's another media conspiracy :)

some full albums and single downloads and spotify listens, but i wasn't really expecting much. but it's out there so that was my main goal

Oops :(
Instead of "real" maybe read "regular sounding". A thousand apologies Vic!

Can't get it to load and play...

Vic Holman said 307 days ago (October 16th, 2016)

i had a issue listening to a different song earlier. something about the flash player came up about enabling to play. a message did finally come up about enabling it

Cool song Vic
interesting lyrics, I like Neil's comparison to the Mustard Man. The villain and his deplorable conspirators. Canary King, an appropriate definition with the parrots who follow.

Canary in a coal mine
There's a scorching wind blowing through the country, for sure, and I think your guitar soloing exemplifies that blast of hot air. Election fatigue may be setting in. But ear fatigue? Not with this song.

Great to hear your work around here again, Vic. Fertile ground for songwriters in the US these days... Love the guitars, as always. A hypnotic, mostly disbelieving vibe permeates the song. Thanks!

is a character that bowie would have played and this would of course have been the song that he contributed to the soundtrack. As always your guitar playing is top notch. i'm consumed with jealousy just like old times.

Nice Vic
Sonic opium. A dream...

Cool lyrics.

Love the double tracking on your vocals.

Dripping wobbly lead solo is a nice touch too!

Be well friend!

Great solo
In the middle of a great song.As peter says it's certainly fertile ground in the USA for song writers at the moment. So glad i came back here after a long lay off and get the chance to hear songs like this again. cheers

good to hear a new one
Dig the lyrics and the tune. Bass is a little off. I don't know. Maybe like a smoother, fretless type of bass sound would work better, just my opinion,

Dream-like in how the music washes over. You're up to your usual high standards here Vic. Fine writing, vocals and guitar work. Did I say topical too?

Thanks for the download too!
