Which Would You Rather Be?

Just in time for Election Day! This is a nice song to sing on your way to or from your local polling place. (If you sing it at the polling place -- or at work, or really in any polite company -- you will be frowned at, at the very least.) If you've already voted, that's okay -- you can sing it while watching the returns, or simply learn it for next time. If you're not in the United States, that's okay, too -- it will probably still apply.

This is what I did on Sunday, mostly, and finished up just now.

Autoharp, vocals, "Dr. Groove" drum machine, and the Alesis Micron for bass & organ. (I'm using my Shinybox ribbon mic for vocals and I'm pretty happy with it so far.)

The words are a couple of years old but apart from a vague melodic idea this is all new as of last weekend.

Great! I definitely won't mind this being stuck in my head for a while!

Ha! Wonderful, Mr. the Jackal.

Well done, Karlos. I thought the ending was very sweet sounding. Plus the chorus line is terribly catchy. I'm glad I didn't hear this election day, or I may have accidentally sung it in line.

This is such an earworm! It's catchy and compact. I love it.

I have to admit I'm starting to feel some autoharp envy. I never thought I would ever say that in my life.
