I Don't Want To Do This Anymore

I Don't Want To Do This Anymore

Liner Notes: 

A few weeks ago, my daughter and I turned onto a downtown side street and found ourselves at a straight-edge punk show. The guy on stage was a one-man band, thrashing on his guitar and singing/shouting "I don't want to do this anymore!"

I have about a dozen organ sounds at my disposal on my keyboard, and this one is a go-to. And I still don't know what "this" is.

A fitting end-of-50/90 song, I think. I've had a great time, as usual, but I'm ready for a songwriting break.


What is this?
I don’t want this!
Enough of this!
I’m done with this!

Whatever this is I know one thing for sure
I don’t want to do this anymore

This is it!
This I quit!
This doesn’t fit!
This is bullshit!

Whatever ...

Here, take this!
Don’t leave me with this!
You deal with this!
De este no mas!

Whatever ...

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

Cute organ sound, I like it. I like that the protagonist is totally against "this" but does not specify. That's rather brilliant, actually, I love songs that leave a lot to the imagination. I mean, 50/90 is about over, it makes me think of that right away. But here we are. And a lot of us will probably be back for more...

Oh yeah, it works perfect for the end of 50/90. Seems a bit ragy, but we know it's really all for fun. I ca't do this anymore for while myself. I really pushed out a load of songs in the last three days, and I need a break, so it really speaks to me. Smile Organ is cool. Like the guitar. Cute little 7 chord on the end to punctuate. Fun tune! See you again at FAWM.

Cool strum and organ backdrop to the pointed pinky lyric! Nicely done and a lot of fun!

That organ is great. This is catchy as heck, with a snappy beat. I picked up a guitar for the first time in weeks. I thing I'm ready to start doing it again, if I could remember how. It all seems so imperative when we're in the middle of this creative frenzy...and then it doesn't. It was great "seeing" you here, as always
