Orgiastically melodromatic Jacques Brel-inspired version of the strange little ballad I posted a couple of days ago. [more inside]
WIP, last touched at the end of 08. While I'm happy with the lyrics, and the beat-producer, antisoc, did an admirable job of piecing together 4 different artists with different flow styles, I really need to punch up the back beat a little, and I'm going to re-record the 2nd verse-- my timing gets a little off. Features 3 guest nerdcore rappers: ytcracker-- the original digital gangster--, KABUTO, and finally, The Ranger of The Downunderdogs. Careful, there's there's cussin'. [more inside]

A song for Memorial Day, posted a few days late. [more inside]
Believe it or not, this song was not written about the Iraq war. In fact, it was a reaction to something I was sensing in the air back before the first Gulf War, circa 1990. I changed the wording slightly to reflect the times, but the song still works beautifully. The recording is from my new collection 2 O's, 2 E's (a reference to how I spell my last name). You can download the entire album and lots more stuff at johnvoorhees.com.
More of the woes caused by foreign wars in this song from the woodshed tape (Sweden 1984.) "By heaven I'll make them rue the day when they took the legs from a child of mine" The Early Puritans at it again with an Irish song. Singer Dave Scott is Irish. Other singer Jim Donovan though is american [more inside]
Something I put together last year on a weekend, barricaded in at home. I was mucking about with my 505 and watching far too much of the 24 hour cable news channels. I never did get around to re-recording it: I wanted to clean up the strained bits of the vocals (I am not a vocalist), and work out a guitar track to add. But that's not going to happen anymore, so here it is in all its novice mysanthropy. Its my 1st MeFiMusix upload, so let me have it.
