What to make of it?

[Explicit]

Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This song was inspired by the late, great Harry Nilsson. Especially the song, "You're Breaking My Heart". If you've heard that one, who'll know what I mean.
I'm in no way trying to be outrageous on this number, but just a tad devilish.......we all have that side.

The story is not "really" based on one event, but maybe a combination of events that could have happened to a number of different people.

I got turned on to Harry Nilsson about 3 or 4 years ago,and hadn't realized what a great artist he had been. I think he was quite a writer and singer and not just his popular ones.
"Unfortunately, you sometimes fall victim to your own quirky influences. And that's what holding you back", that's what I was once told, and so be it.

Rest in peace Harry.
"All I want to do is have a good time now I'm blue."

Sorry if I offend anyone.

Lyrics
What to make of it

You broke my car and my best guitar
You kicked me out and I don't have a doubt
That you killed my cat with a baseball bat
Money's gone and you don't think it's wrong

All this fucking shit and piss
I don't know what to make of it

So, fuck you, you don't have a clue
Goddamn, you ruined my plans
Go to Hell, if that suits you well
Eat shit, you won't mind a bit

All this fucking shit and piss
I don't know what to make of it

I'm going over to your best friend
She's always been my favorite blend
A little this and a little of that
You shouldn't have killed my cat

All this fucking shit and piss
I don't know what to make of it

I'll put a note on the restroom wall
Tell the perverts to give you a call
Poison oak in your underwear
You'll call the cops, but I won't care

All this fucking shit and piss
I don't know what to make of it

So, fuck you, you don't have a clue
Goddamn, you ruined my plans
Go to Hell, if that suits you well
Eat shit, you won't mind a bit

All this fucking shit and piss
I don't know what to make of it

Hey dave - -fuck you, man!

This is ace - modern pop with a beatles/psychedelic feel, great melodies, and yeah, the chorus really works.

Shoulda been in 'Juno' - it's that kinda song!

I don't know Harry Nilsson's work. But I like the song, I'm not sure if I should have been, but I was laughing whilst I listened!

I agree with echoroom, should have been in Juno or something.

Total Satire
This song is total satire. Was uploaded on Valentine's Day. Just having fun. Writing a song for that poor guy who does everything right, but everything goes wrong. So, he seeks a little revenge.......just a little bit.

michael2 said 3388 days ago (February 15th, 2008)
yeah
i can see the Nillson influence: classic pop hooks, cool production and smart quirky lyrics. love that little guitar slide you slip in every once in awhile. it's a great hook.

this is a great song, and i'm happy it doesn't offend me at all. oh, and the solo is awesome.

BTW, thanks for digging into my back catalog.

to see if I'd faved you as an artist... hadn't so I did. Damn, man- you tend not to write sucky songs. Have to admit this is one of the better profanity laden songs I have ever heard.

Well, I'm sittin' here chuckling...
You'll have to forgive me if I don't load it into the iPod for office listening...

It has some of that Nilsson vibe, a quirky pop Beatle/Badfinger feel, but it also has a taste of the Basement Tapes, as well...

You could do worse for touchstones than that...

This is a fun track. It had to be fun to lay the vocals. I wrote a similar song once but it doesn't lay it all out like this (probably should have though).
Definitely enjoyed the listen.

Nilsson!
i used to work at a record store and I bought one of those CD's you know isn't manufactured by any legitimate outfit, but it's #3 so how can you not? Anyway, I bought a Nilsson CD because I like "Without You" and ending up loving the rest more.

ANYWAY, this song is wicked cool. Whimsical, but not Adam Sandler silly. good balance.

Well to be absolutely....
honest as a newbie I just enjoy cybercruising and trying out different things and genres that I wouldn't normally listen to.

I also have an affinity with Germany having lived there on and off and spending some great (and not so great as well )holidays especially in the Harz and Bayern..so just lucky I
picked that song I guess.I will be having a listen to more of your music in the coming weeks so rustle me up einBratwurst und ein kaltes Bier, Grosses Bier .....Wiederschauen
