Blues Lyrics...

by Chris Randall
 

Are there any blues-format lyrics that haven't been already written like 71,255 times? I've got this song that has been kicking my ass for like 6 months. It's fully produced and done, but it doesn't have any vocals, because I haven't been able to think of something that isn't derivative of, like, every song ever.


This is especially annoying because it's the very last song for this album, and as soon as I get the vocals recorded, I can move my studio in to the house. (It's cold out here!) Fuck! Shit! Fuck!


UPDATE: Hey, look! The world's most useless web page! I knew I'd find it eventually.

You could write some blues lyrics about being stuck in a cold studio while failing to come up with original blues lyrics....

Anti-war blues? We need some new ones.

No we don't. There's nothing more obnoxious than whiny protest folk songs. (Unless they somehow manage to be really really funny, which is rare.)

I'm in agreement with space_monkey in that regard. Joan Baez can choke on my left nut.

Well I think Nick Cave's "No Pussy Blues" is quite poignant although most y'all are married it seems to maybe it wouldn't be 'real' haha.

I said Blues, not folk, you fucktard.

well, "road to peace" ain't bad!

screamin' jay & howlin' wolf wrote some pretty surreal shit.... I don't think the well's run dry.

I heard a Howlin' Wolf song on the radio in New Orleans (on their absolutely phenomenal community radio station) and I thought it was Tom Waits. Once I got past the disconnect, I went out and bought 3 Howlin' Wolf records.

So, you've got a point there. I don't care for Screamin' Jay, though. Just personal preference.

This is why I hate the blues. There is exactly one blues song, and I think we all get it.
