Apathy

[Explicit]

Get Flash to see this player.

Description
After the last recording session we had an
idea for a song: tribute to apathy.
Strange logic, oh well.
It was our usual joking kind of song idea.
Well when we started to record it here's the result.

Lyrics
They make a killing
I can't make a living
They make a killing off me
They make a killing
I can't make a living
What's wrong with me

Fell in love long ago
Dreams fade away
And all I know
Is I'm in love with my apathy

They make a killing
I can't make a living
It's all about greed
And the only real problem
is what's wrong with me

Fell in love long ago
Dreams fade away
And all I know
Is I'm in love with my apathy

They make a killing
I can't make a living
It's all about greed
What's wrong with me

Fell in love long ago
Dreams fade away
And all I know
Is I'm in love with my apathy

Worth more exploration
The vocal harmonies give this a kind of strange quality,
like the Moody Blues or something. It has a nice flow to it,
dark, but sort of punctuated with hope by the harmonies
in the chorus. A few more lines in the lyrics would add
depth and meaning to the sentiment. As it is I think there
just isn't enough variation and after the second chorus it
begins to feel repetitive.

Production-wise its pretty good. You've got a little hiss,
but it isn't bad. I think one thing you could polish-up
easily is the vocals. A pop screen will cut out the rasp of
breath against the microphone. When you sing close,
during the verse, the low end kind of overwhelms the
shape of the words. I think a little compression might
balance out the sibilants with the vowls.

Its a good start on what could be a really good song (5-6
-6-6)

Anybody
looking for a stereophonic, hi-fi wet dream probably
wouldn't like this one. But I did, just the way it is.

Two thoughts
Like it the way it is and would like to see it expanded with
some drums, crushing guitar over the chorus. It's a good
song, good lyrics. Liked the harmonies on the vocals.
Nothing wrong with guitar and vox. Makes it more
personal. Nice.

Thanks for your time, good ideas. We may record a more polished one at
some point, or maybe just add some overdubs.

Your Best Yet!
Man, I loved this one guys! Great moody song which
worked as an artistic whole. From the beautiful apathetic
monotone vocals to the "whole lot of truth in a few words"
lyrics, this was spectacular. Doesn't need anything else. In
fact, more would probably make it less. Perfect as is.
9 9 10 9 This song reminded me so much of the kind of
stuff you could actually hear on the radio in the 60's
before that greed came along and killed creativity.

Thanks, bronco. Yeah, I know we said we might add stuff to it, but we're too
lazy, ha. Since most people like it as it is, why change it. Thanks again for
your time and comments.

I missed this one the first time around.
I'm sure glad I found it this time! Another very cool song. Your vocals sound a bit Curt Cobain like on this one!
