    Default New Okkervil River. Track #1.

    This life is not a movie, or maybe.

    Can we discuss this, please?

    go.

    lyrics:

    It's just a bad movie
    Where there's no crying
    Hand in the keys to me in this Red Lion
    Where the lock that you locked in the suite says there's no prying
    When the breath that you breathed in the street screams there's no science
    When you look how you looked then to me then i cease lying
    And fall into silence

    It's just a life story
    So theres no climax
    No more new territory
    So pull away the imax
    In the slot that you sliced through the scene there was no shyness
    In the plot that you passed through your teeth there was no pity
    No fade-in, film begins on a kid in the big city
    And no cut to a costly parade that's for him only
    No dissolve to a sliver of gray that's his new lady
    Where she flows just like grain on the flickering pane of some great movie
    Hey, I'd watch it!
    (hoo hoo!)
    (hoo hoo!)
    (hoo hoo!)
    (hoo hoo!)

    It's just a house burning
    But its not haunted
    It was your heart hurting
    But not for too long, kid
    In the socket you spin from with ease there is no sticking
    From the speakers your fake masterpiece comes serenely dribbling
    And when the air round your chair fills with heat that's the flames licking
    Beneath the clock on the clean mantlepiece its got a cold clicking

    Like a pro at his editing suite takes two weeks stitching
    Up some bad movie (hoo hoo!)
    (hoo hoo!)
    (hoo hoo!)
    (hoo hoo!)

    1. That link didn't work
    2. Hype Machine turned up the Music Slut mp3 blog which had that song
    3. Which means: Listening now

    Oh I get it. You click the link and it'll take you to the place. I didn't think of that. And I can never navigate around Pitchy's site. And they left the Boris off their search function.

    It's a fucking good song.

    For me this doesn't bode too well for the album. The lyrics are really bad, who in the world can think rhymes like that are OK... The song itself is OK, the breakdown in the middle is cool, but the rest of the song is kind of uninteresting. not bad, but not very good.

    hahaha. ironically enough I've been listening to Black Sheep Boy pretty regularly this week. In anticipation of some leaks. I downloaded this last night and have listened to it three times... just not doing it for me.

    i'm serious about the lyrics though.... awful.

    our relationship will overcome this tragedy (tragedy being the lyrics in this song), we will persevere.

    Music scene is crazy, bands start up each and every day
    I saw another one just the other day
    A special new band
    I remember lying
    I dont remember lies
    I dont remember what
    But I dont care, I care, I really dont care
    Did you see the drummers hair?

    I was just listening to Black Sheep Boy. It has a total of two (2) good songs on it. The rest were obviously written before any musical accompaniment and then shoehorned into a tepid melody.

    it's clear i went horribly wrong when naming this thread. should have stuck to "the ________ appreciation thread" formula.
