The Simple Life

The Simple Life

(Morgan)

The anti-John Denver song. The lyrics get a bit...rude, so not for the easily offended.

Al: Peace & Love

Since I can only post and not actually listen to your song while here at work, is this the same song as that one on your old cassette? I think it was called "The Simple Things" and you go over how all the simple things in life are free...

No, a different song, though come to think of it it does perform the same function of using a musical format to subvert expectations. And stuff.

Ha ha ha! I laugh, but then again I'm a cynical bastard.

This reminds me of Tom Lehrer, actually. Also puts me in the mind of that wimpy version of "Boys in the Hood" that was on KROQ a few years ago. What was the name of that group again?

Dude, you should put some of these out a podcast.

The name of that group was/is "Dynamite Hack"...I love that cover! The whole "words don't fit with the tone of the music" idea is classic, and I'm happy to exploit it whenever I can.

A podcst is a good idea, but I'm trying hard just to keep up with making/posting the songs themselves and have fallen behind on the companion website...so maybe after the semester ends.

Love it! Manson was into the Beach Boys, this is the equivalent... John Denver the ax murderer
