This song has been called the Indy artist anthem by some. It was actually an attempt at self promotion back in 1999 at MP3.com. I thought maybe I was finally in the right place at the right time. What do you think? Was I?
I Want My Mp3 as protest song... Ted ranks on The Man. Sure, he could whine and bellyache like I would singing a protest song. BUT NOOOOO... Ted has to get ironic and humorous. And toss in all that compelling instrumental stuff that hallmarks his arrangements. Harmonica, deadcenter percussion, and badboy fuzzbox on the guitar to highlight his now-stylized approach to producing his vocals. I kept thinking movie soundtrack. If two campy fat boys can cop an Oscar for doing Flintstone music, then I shudder to think what Ted's track would do mated to some decent video. Most of you already know all about the track. But for those of you who haven't bothered to check it out,... you really should. It's the ultimate diss on the music industry. He doesn't bitch about it - he damn well thumbs his nose at it. This is clearly a role model for all of us... Strong songwriting and lyrics as well. I can't wait to take my annual road trip to Nowhere, Arizona with the spouse. I already told her I lined up some music for the highway. And the cool thing is that she already digs Ted, too! No more Dead - I'm listening to Ted! That woman hates protest music. But this one she'll dig. I like the part where his guitar basically farts at A&R reps. I'm with ya, dude! So give yourself a break from taking it all too seriously. Go listen to Ted Lehman diss the mufuhs again. And maybe you'll be inspired to fart at an A&R rep too! Billy Shaw
