Clearly our most played song, and one of my faves, too. Funny that it took about 20 minutes to write, and I have like 2 verses that are good but that I had cut out. Thanks, kashworth. Always happy when we hit someone's spot.
Some people think I ripped off "Hedwig", but actually I hadn't even seen it when I wrote the lyrics for this. (though it's one of my favorites now)

I think I was probably drunk listening to folk music when I wrote it, so that's perfect, boygenius.

Oh, and slowpram, you would think the rolys I've been smoking since high school would've done the trick. You should've heard me before- I was lead soprano in the Vienna Boys Choir. Maybe it's time to switch brands. Or just take my consumption up a couple of notches. Give a few more decades of self-abuse and I'll have my Leonard Cohen voice down pat (I read he said something about "thousands of cigarettes and many swimming pools worth of whiskey").

"Every town has its ups and downs... sometimes ups outnumber the downs... but not in Nottingham," This song reminded me of that rooster's song from Disney's Robin Hood for no reason I can explain. I enjoyed the references to the 'peach on the tree' and the 'got any sugar mama, then save a lump or two for me.' Also about her being a cup of tea... are you sure you guys aren't just hungry? Somebody buy these guys something to eat. I like the mood this evokes but personally, I'm not sure this is centerpiece music in the sense that I wouldn't listen just for the sake of listening. I'd enjoy hearing this band in a country-ish restaurant while I sat and enjoyed a nice meal. I'd even buy the band something to eat. They look hungry.

This song is definitely haunting as someone earlier put it. Love the lyrics and the voice. I liked the dreamy feel of the slide and didn't find it twangy but rather thought it set the mood for the voice and words. Overall, good listening and I would keep this track to play again and again.

Minus a producer, a million dollar studio I really think this song has some strong possibilities. Over all the song needs to be shortened by keeping the slide solo at a minimum of 4 to 6 bars. Conversation songs are hard to pull off so you need to keep the lyrics going to retain audience attention. Take out the drum at the beginning. The song does have that rehearsed feel to it. Listen to the Rolling Stones song, “Far away eyes” just for giggles. Or “Sin City” by the Burrito Brothers. I think all will become clear. Just a few suggestions.

That's what we're talking about now- some serious discussion about why the song works or doesn't work based on it's own merits. This tune has kind of been our favorite piece of clay for a while now, and it's been molded and remolded into many different visages. We like the FEEL of this one a lot, but yes, in retrospect- we may have been leaning this way, sort of, but hadn't quite put our fingers on it- a guitar hook may be exactly what this particular version is lacking. Also, the rude beer bottle solo- although we'd probably just use the slide- is a great idea, maybe to end it with a little more gusto. Definitely needs to be a little more, um, "live". Thanks again for the feedback, gents.

I dig the tune. Maybe it could use a guitar hook in the in the intro (starting where the drums come in). You have a great voice, and interesting lyrics. I'm not sure if you're seriously coming on to the girl or just playing around being kinda cheesy or both. Overall, it sounds a bit rehearsed. Some parts sound obviously overdubbed, which makes it hard to imagine what the band looks like while playing the song.

While it's difficult to ignore other quote successful unquote music you like when listening to this stuff comma I think it's pretty fair (and possible) to judge it based purely on its own intentions and merits; how successful the song is at doing what it seems to be trying to do to you, and how valuable that intention is in the first place. I know you're not suggesting that music was bad before producers and giant music companies. I mean, really; it's just someone making noise at you, after all.

Also, I offer the artist hearty praise for being objective enough to take the comments here in the spirit in which they were given, and for meeting reasonable criticism reasonably. Well carried.

I think litcube brings up an excellent point., that I was thinking about last night listening to some of the rejects. I think some of these critics need to realize these are local type bands with no money for the most part. And the types of things they are commenting on are things that the BIG BUDGET record companies can fix easy. And minus a producer this is HARD to do. We compare stuff here to what we buy at the local music store. We rate it based on what we hear on the radio? I am not sure that is what everyone is doing, but that is a hard line man....

The Song: I think it's pretty good. A little on the low side as far as catchy. The guitar needs a little more something for me. The Vocals have some interesting melodies, needs a little more variation within the verse. I agree with one of the comments earlier that as I listened I found myself drifting off the song and paying attention to something else. But... overall pretty cool man...

Hey, dude. I like your song. I have a hard time saying that anyone's lyrics "suck". I am getting the impression after the past week that because you or anyone else’s submitted music doesn’t have any credibility with any of us – that is, you’re new – some of us are going to shred the lyrics (among other song aspects). I mean, do you hear other critics leaning into the lyrics of Nirvana? Pearl Jam? Maybe infrequently, but it sure as hell didn’t affect their record sales.

Anyway, I enjoy the groove here. Excellent production, great voice. I would agree with Qualcomm somewhat regarding the guitar. I found myself not trusting the guitarist to keep his rhythm, and would enjoy hearing other takes on that track.

Curious, it seems like nearly every other feature, has received 2.5 stars, with the exception of the "Pink Flamingoes”…. We appreciate those who have something specific to say, good or bad. Too long, too "soporific”...alright, we can buy that, that’s legitimate. Recorded again, we'd probably take it a few shades faster- also do it more live, assuming we find the personnel (anyone who's ever attempted to put together a band knows how that goes). But "the lyrics suck" gives us nothing and is a feeble attempt at criticism. If you dislike them so strongly, tear them apart and shove ‘em back in our faces. Massacre ‘em! We're surprised anyone would take this song as anything other than a slightly sleazy come-on in the “Baby the world’s gone wrong so make sweet love to me” blues tradition, as interpreted by a bunch of white kids from Seattle- with some not-exactly-joking-but-not-exactly-serious lyrics. Love hearing the feedback from those who bothered to put some effort into it- thanks, guys- can't take seriously, or take anything away from, any review that’s one sentence long and contains the word “sucks”. Doc Watson says, “If you don’t like my peaches, don’t shake my tree.” Admittedly, our line is a little weird- maybe bad- but peaches can most definitely shake.

I liked it more when i left my house this morning. Decided its just too cheesy. I like the idea of younger singer/songwriters trying to pull off country except this seems like someone who hasn't had enough bad luck and doesn't have enough hatred and disdain for the world yet. Also seems a bit too much like early Dylan but without the soul (or bad luck maybe). Its a good listen though and the song is actually pretty good, and I will keep it in my party shuffle probably.

I like this song. I think it's been the best of the singer/songwriter guy hanging out on the dusty road strumming his guitar offerings by far. But I think it would benefit from a heavy dose of menace. I don't have the technical vocabulary to explain what it is I think it needs, so I will proceed to invent words. If you were to re-record this with the kind of Gedämpften Gitarrenklang für gespenstisch beeinflusst we find in The Breeders' Mad Lucas, I think it would add to the overall feel of this song. But I do find it a a solid outing, just a bit too predictable. And again lacking in Gedämpften Gitarrenklang für gespenstisch beeinflusst.

Since I'm inherently an unhappy person, I have a trouble relating to anything close to an honest emotion. That said, I'll save it for the head doctor. I dug the vibe, it's got a whole road trip thing going on. I agree about the opening guitar stroke, but dig the rest. I'm giving 2.5 stars. Not because the song's not good, but more just because I'm a sad sad man and it's not really my style.

The music vibe feels pretty consistently melancholy, but the lyrics become more and more hopeless. I guess I wish there was either more self loathing, ala The Weight by The Band, or that music shifted a little darker the changed vibe along with the lyrics. Still, tight solid prof sound.

torn between 2.5 and 3. it's pleasant enough, the type of song one might listen to while driving along at 2.25AM. some errors: the opening drag strum (or slow strum or whatevs) is kinda cheese, "shake like a peach" is a jarringly inapt simile, and it drags on a bit long. hello.
HEAVILY INFLUENCED BY RICHARD "RABBIT" BROWN'S "JAMES ALLEY BLUES". I MAY HAVE ALSO STOLEN A LINE FROM THE MEMPHIS JUG BAND . SORT OF A BLUES IN THE "WORLD'S GONE WRONG, COME EASE MY WORRIED MIND" MODE....


Are you lonesome and blue? Could you use a little company?
And if you don't want me here could you tell me where you want me to be?
'Cause you bend like a flower, you shake like a peach
I'm dyin' to taste you but my lips can't quite reach
So slide over here and be my little cup of tea
And if you got any sugar, momma, save a lump or two for me

The world was hot on my heels and I needed a place to hide
And I hope you don't mind but I nailed the door from inside
But if you wanna leave I know a way outta here
You work the pedals and I'm gonna steer
So slide over here and be my little cup of tea
And if you got any sugar, momma, save a lump or two for me

Well, times ain't now nothing like they used to be
I seen it myself- I watched it happen on TV
And my head is on fire, my brain is all bent
I'd buy me some water but I ain't got a cent
So slide over here and be my little cup of tea
And if you got any sugar, momma, save a lump or two for me

I can't sleep for dreamin', I can't stay awake for cryin'
I'd sell my soul for some peace and some quiet but nobody's buyin'
But I won't talk off your ear, I won't put on a show
And if you don't want me here say the word and I'll go
So slide over here and be my little cup of tea
And if you got any sugar, momma, save a lump or two for me
