Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Just a working demo, needs another verse and some different lyrics, but just got it out anyway. It's what it is.

Lyrics: 

What are friends, but people who make you angry
What are friends, but people who make you realize when you are crazy

You drive me insane, but you're my best buds of all time
The good people remain, and my mood flips on a dime
I get mad at you, and then I don't care anymore
I hope you'll always be, here with uptight me

What are friends, but people who make you angry
What are friends, but people who are more okay than the rest

You drive me insane, but you're my best buds of all time
The good people remain, and my mood flips on a dime
I get mad at you, and then I don't care anymore
I hope you'll always be, here with uptight me



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

A surprising but interesting take on the friends theme. Makes it more realistic and it's also about the narrator who takes a hit with "uptight me". The music sounds great! I like how the music starts...a lot of anticipation there...and "what are friends" is memorable, catchy.

Yup often the way it is! The old saying i don't like you enough to dislike you comes to mind! Nicely done

The way the chorus picks up is excellent. Good combination of sounds, too. Smile

Looking at the lyrics...the opening part says friends will let you know when you are being crazy. The second part is a perfect example of a guy who has really good friends and knows he's been uptight and acknowledged it. The next part a slight variation people who are more okay than the rest...that works. Chorus finish. Yeah, this is a good idea. I'm ready for the audio now...hold. Nice opening...love the scratch on the guitiar...drums now...very cool...vocals now...sounds good....crunch guitar kicking in now...all your guitars sound great. I hear electric clean now...great message in this song...definitely got my head moving...uptight me...changeup or key change not sure...sounds really good....awesome sound....nice ending. Excellent, I like it a lot.

This is a corker and on the strength of what you are coming up with this year i don't know why you aren't lionised and feted.
You are the only artist I know who is doing anything worthwhile with that old dinosaur called rock music.
You're voice has got stronger this year and your songwriting is constantly great.
That intro with the string noises is cool, but wasn't sure about the jazzy bit at 2 mins.
If there's a next level from this, then take it there, and surely no one can ignore you.
