Happy New Year!

Whipped up in a hurry, a glum song for 2009. Happy New Year, MetaFilter!

Forgive the junky banjo playing. Crass electronic tone produced by Suzuki Omnichord plugged directly into laptop - with lots of gross GarageBand effects. Lyrics:

New Year's, what a waste of time
You won't show me yours,
I won't show you mine.

You say there's a party?
Well, why should I go?
There's nothing going on
That I want to be a part of.

When the champagne pops
And that big ball drops
Nothing's gonna change

New York, Los Angeles – Birmingham
Get ready ready for another year of hopeless dreams and scams

So party well, get as drunk as a lord
Crash your little Ford into another passing Ford

But don't you fool yourself
You oughta know better
The girl you want for New Year's, you're never gonna get her

Listen, children: you know we ain't livin' right
And that ain't changing 'cos of one drunken night

You're still gonna smoke,
You won't go to the gym,
The statisticians tell me
Resolutions never win...

This has a nice, durgy feel to it. Though, I don't think "durgy" is a word. And it's about my favorite holiday!

Though, I think I'm about the only person who says that.

Fixed that for ya. Happy new year!

No, this is a very cool song. The junky banjo is my favorite part! Please, more junky banjo, and lines like "crash your little ford into another passing ford." Will listen to the rest of your stuff tomorrow!
