Liner Notes: 

Playing the skirmish game. I kinda think this song is more like mishaps than accidents, but I was having fun and I think that's all that matters. My voice has not been right for the past few days. Not sure if I'm coming down with something, but for now it will do.

How I did it:
Recorded and mixed using Studio One Professional
Bass: Ibanez 5 string
Clavi: Looped
Drum Programming: Random one shots
Mic: Shure SM7B


Funny how life take a turn sometimes
Next thing u know there's an accident
Spilled milk on the floor
Someone runs a red light
Now your Honda Accord has a dent

U fall down the stairs
U called your ex by mistake
U picked the wrong pair of shoes 4 a date
U used the wrong debit card
And now u tripped an alarm
By accident and now it's much 2 late

Accidents happen
Anytime, any place
It doesn't mean u have 2 lose face

U're having a dream
And as real as it seems
U're underwater but really U R not
Check your bed sheets
Yup, they're wet, yes indeed
Accidents will never stop

U called a dude, Miss
U ordered oatmeal, not grits
And your barber took 2 much off the top
Oops is the word U know U don't want 2 hear
When your Faberge egg got dropped

Accidents happen
Anytime, any place
It doesn't mean u have 2 lose face

2019 The Jelly Factory!

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I dig this. This is like some bionic Yacht Rock. Right up my alley. Dig the clav. Call back to the Sugar Plum song? BTW, the ol' swimming/peein' the bed thing. Too close to home man. Too close. haha!

Fine old school R&B groove supports witty lyrics covering a universe of accidental situations. A fun listen, great skirmishing.

Love it! Nice groove and vocals - reminds me of somebody I can’t remember who. Probably from the 70s - lol!

Too funny, your list of accidents. I love the sound you produce, it's yours but pays tribute to the greats in your way--I'm thinking Stevie Wonder on this one. The way you present all these misfortunes makes me want to laugh, a guilty pleasure like watching those accidents on home video tv shows.

Nice light feel for those "oops" moments. The mood of the music highlighted the thoughts in the chorus. The lyric made me smile. Fun tune.

"U called a dude, Miss"
"And your barber took 2 much off the top"
"U used the wrong debit card"
More times than what would seem normal...
I love this track! Hilarious, relatable, and sounds great.
Digging the vibe, good ol' r&b.
Voice sounds fine to me and the laughs here and there give off such a playful and light-hearted feel; like we've all been in the same boat at some point.
But forreal tho...I've wanted to fight some barbers in the past! lol

I really like the light touch on this: it's funky in an upbeat, poppy way, the lyrics are just pure fun, and you sound like you're having an absolute blast singing this, which absolutely is conveyed to me as the listener and puts a big grin on my face. Bravo!

Funky and funny as hell.

I can hear you laughing all the way through this, Craig. I was too - I don't think I could have sung this one without giggling!

Fun lyrics! Vocals sound good (a bit like Lenny Kravitz). I also appreciate the uplifting message (I'll remind that next time I stumble off the stairs).
