Our country appears to be in a state of social upheaval. Oddly enough, I’ve written a relevant song. It was initially inspired by an acquaintance’s encounter with racism, and further tempered by recent events. The title is self explanatory.
Seems like an appropriate use of the word “fuck.”
I thought it was important to share sooner rather than later. Most of the lyrics were written last year (I figured they’d surface at some point), but I stumbled across the groove yesterday. The song came together quickly. I didn’t expect to post it today; figured it would need at least a week or two of woodshedding. But, I decided to give it a shot today, and you can see the result. It’s very raw, the performance isn’t perfect, and it’s possible the arrangement may need tweaking.
But I think it works.
I ran it by a friend of mine. He agreed it was appropriate for its inspiration and the state of social unrest.
I’d say enjoy it, but that doesn’t quite feel right.
I’ve decided to try and do a few more cover songs. Stay tuned for those over the coming weeks.
That’s it for now. Take care. Stay healthy and safe.
