It's amazing what you can get away with when you know the recording is gonna sound like crap anyway.
Written and performed by Todd Leiter-Weintraub
Recorded on the cheapest of equipment, we KNEW it was gonna sound bad. So we thought we'd see what we could get away with!
Lead vocals were recorded with a mic that came with an old phonograph, plugged into a Boss distortion pedal. We tuned the stereo in to a station of static and cranked it in the background, too. Since we didn't have a bass with us that day, I did the "bom-bom" bassline.
So awfully recorded, it's perfect.
Having originally appeared on Lo-Fi Is Better Than No-Fi At All, I also stuck it on the end of As Drawn By Ethan... as a "hidden" track.
Why do I feel so good today?
Nothing’s gone right
For just one moment in my life
I’m not feeling uptight
As if there’s nothing left to say
Don’t hand me speeches
As if there’s consequence to pay
I don’t care how far it reaches
And if my actions
Cause you dismay (Q)
I don’t care
What can I say?
Why do you look so glum tonight?
Can’t you smile like I do?
Isn’t everything allright?
Don’t worry you’ll get through
In just one moment I’d swap lives
And we’d both be happy
This one last thing you’d do for me
I’d remember you fondly
