I tend to post here only songs that I have recorded which have higher production values (I hear you gasp), but the other night I met up for a most convivial drink with the South East UK chapter/MacJammer brethren thereof, and I rightly came in for some stick for not posting anything at all for a couple of years.
So I thought I would post this, because it explains my reticence: I am not ashamed of it as a song, but it has so many rough production edges that I hesitate to share it. (I advise you to hesitate to listen too.)
Nonetheless here it is in its full gory. Deep down I hope to have another crack at recording it properly with some better musicians than me, which is ironic as this song is all about doing nothing with your life because you assume there will be another chance - something that will be carved on my headstone. In fact I might as well order the bloody thing now….

Yes. I remember this the first time around and despite your misgivings it holds up really well.

Usual quality lyrics, melody and arrangement.

Glad we pushed you to put something new up..
This a good song.
Reminds me of Bowie in his Anthony Newley era.
It does deserve more time taken with the general arrangement.
In my mind I can hear bits of french horn or trumpet peppered here and there.
But good stuff anyway and thanks for posting

Bit of a Beatles sound (around the Eleanor Rigby period) to me. I like the story in the lyrics. Love it when the harmonies come in - that full sound is great. Good arrangement. Like that guitar solo. Much enjoyed!
