a song about laundry

1 year, 7 months, and 26 days ago I mentioned Teresa giving me a song idea about laundry. Back then I would try to get her to give me ideas for songs by ambushing her with request along the lines of “Song idea! Go! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1!” The results were middling at best. So one time, longer than 1 year, 7 months, and 26 days ago, we said “baby…I’m doing the laundry.” From there, I wrote this. It took me 1 year, and about 6 months to record it. Then another couple months to post it, just due to laziness. Please, whatever you do, don’t mistake the time spent on this as an equivalent to the effort put into it. Time=!quality.

So, here you go.

A Song About Laundry by toekneebullard

(You’ll also notice I’m giving “Soundcloud” a try. Hopefully it will get more people to hear my music.)

I had mentioned in the previous post that I’ve been on a Frankie Valli kick. Consider that precedent.

Since high school I’ve had the idea to make a punk rock cover band that only plays pop songs from the 50’s and 60’s. The idea behind it was, Punk Rock is fun music, and people love hearing songs they know. So I always figured a room full of people could really enjoy singing along to their mom’s and dad’s favorite songs whilst dancing around like themselves.

I never set it up because I realized most people my age didn’t have as close a tie to their parent’s music as I did. Oh well.

So I said all that as an excuse for this. Not that there needed to be one. So anyway, here’s a ‘new’ song for you.

an oldie…but a goody?

Wrote this song back in 2005, around the time Tree and I had just gotten married. Not that that has anything to do with the song, but if you’re not used to pointless rambling at this point, well then you must be a new reader. WELCOME!

Anyway…

Wrote it back in 2005. Not sure why i never posted it, but a few months ago I accidentally deleted the only finished version I had. So I dug up the old Pro Tools session and gave it a little refresh mix and decided I might as well share it with the world.

I’m particularly fond of the lyrics. I’m happiest with my writing when it’s at it’s most sarcastic.

So less talk, more rock. Here’s “Mindless.”

Lyrics:
I’m mindless, I’m moldable
I’m watching MTV, so I can pick my clothes
So won’t you tell me how to live?

I cannot think for myself
I cannot think of anything else
I cannot think of what my life could be

I’d give anything to be your friend
I just want to be Paris Hilton
I’d give anything to be her friend

I cannot think for myself
I cannot think of anything else
I cannot. Please, oh wont you tell me what to believe?

I guess the downside of not releasing a song for 5 years is that the pop culture references might come off a little dated.
