Description
This here is a song about an unhappy person who can only react with dirty looks written in 1993. A cynic who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Lyrics
Dirty Looks

You got no brains,
You got no class,
You don’t read books
The only thing you seem to give are Dirty Looks
When we go out to eat
You pout how the chief cooks
And when the waiter leaves the bill
All you give are Dirty Looks

I know that your life has been so hard
It must take a lot of inner strength
To show so many people so much disregard

You think the butcher baker, candlestick maker
Are a bunch of crooks
The same for lawyers doctors, priests
They all get Dirty Looks

(Musical Interlude)

I know that your life has been so hard
It must take a lot of inner strength
To show so many people so much disregard

Brilliant Tim
Excellent lyrics, I love the groove and the change into the interlude. The outro isn't half bad either!

Splendid stuff.

Cheers

Dirty Looks
An instant and attractive riff which sets it all up from the beginning. So important to have an ingredient like this. I'd love to know who or what inspired this.

At first I thought the vocals should have been more to the fore but have now played it a few times and think it's just right. I like everything about it - vocals, performance and the song itself.

Thanks Woofer
Too be honest lyrically I was thinking of my mother, who wasn't as cynical of the song's subject, but certainly gave her fair share of dirty looks to me and others. Musically the source was Billy Joel although I can't say it sounds like him any way other than I wanted a keyboard driving kind of sound. The instrumental interlude in the middle, which was laughingly referred to as "musical" in the lyrics above, was kind of a McCartney kind of switch up that he sometimes does. That may be more information than you were asking for, but there it is.

Thanks as always for coming by and commenting.

Dirty Looks
Great lyrics, catchy tune, wonderful arrangement. Some fine musicianship, too. A fine brew. Enjoyed it (despite that chick looking at me funny...). Thanks, Peter.

Inner strength
Love the zany sense of circus and 60s psychedelic pop. And the song art is quite disturbing and apt. Written in 1993? There has to be a story there...

Thanks for sharing this. Love all the sonic details.
