Dang Me

June 27, 2010 9:43 AM

Woke up this morning with a sore throat and my voice about an octave lower than usual so I figured it was time to record a cover of Roger Miller's despicable novelty hit that was #1 on the country charts the day I was born. Despicable because it's a song written from the perspective of a complete cunt. So I brought some self loathing to the table, along with the sore throat and my complete inability to play blues guitar.

You've taken a jaunty little ditty and made it sound like a murder ballad. Congrats!

It sounds like you were cringing a little when you had to sing "surple." Yes?

I was trying to sound confused and drunk and unable to say my words properly. But cringing is close. What a fuckin' jackass that Miller is.

Also, I could NOT bring myself to do the do-do-doot-ba-ba-ba-bap-bap-boo part, which was a large part of why it ended up like it did.

What a fuckin' jackass that Miller is.

Yeah, sorry. Harsh. I feel like shit. King of the Road is cool. But this tune was not.
