Description
My newest song, this was originally going to be a huge musical number, but wound up becoming an acoustic song. It's about the nightly news. Let me know what you think.

Lyrics
Todays top story on the headline news, more than I can ber to see, close my eyes but I can hear it too, another blood soaked page of history.

But I don't want to turn it off, it compels me.

I sit and watch as all the horror unfolds, through the smiles of the nightly newscast team, Mrs. Blonde and Mr. blue eyes, don't even care what they show me.

Oh, stay tuned film at 11.

Life is pointless from the anchors view, tragedy is just a rating point, as long as the story not the truth shines through, no one will care what they say or do.

Oh stay tuned, film at 11.

great peice of songwriting....
hey man...u remind me of the poet Pablo Neruda...he
would look at any object(a vase,a can,etc..) and compose a
poem about it(character,value,beauty or
not,virtue...etc)...this piece really communicated..

Sorry about that
I exceeded my data transfer allocation at a temporary site, so the song couldn't stream. It should work now I hope. Sorry to everyone who was trying to listen, my new site should be up hopefully Sunday, and there won't be anymore problems!

Well put...
Makes more sense as an acoustic piece. Over production might have buried the message. Worth the wait!

Outstanding
Your vocals are really clean and the use of the acoustic guitar is perfect. Thanks for this one.

Jack Johnson, anyone?
This song is amazing.....however, does remind me a lot of jack johnson's "on the news tonight"....kind of the same story line.....whatever the case...good song....

Reflecting on it
I would say 'inflection' , vocally . . . but it's there, only it
could mesh more with the tempo.

I work for a newspaper , and many years ago I heard the
story of a top editor who used to tell the crew "Give me 40
dead, and we'll go to the Top!"

- "the Media that we see, isn't meant to replace our life.
sometimes we just insist that it does, the change in return
comes from what we paid for it, which was our valuable
time." - juedm

I don't see any influences, so I'd suggest more of, how
would You say "Put the Instruments into the voice" -
more getting the vocal to match the key of the chorsd in
some places.

This is not to say I did not like this piece, it is very
infectuous, and has quite a bit of promis.

Way good stuff
Your stuff is quite good! I felt that this song was
reminiscent of some Bruce Springsteen & Bon Jovi styles.
Keep up the good work!

Sounds good
Over all I liked it alot but what really struck me is that
your voice is very reminiscent of the late great blues
guitarist Rory Gallagher.
