Liner Notes: 

This is my non traditional 5090 farewell song....

Lyrics: 

V1
pop up pastries
microwave soup
thaw and eat sandwiches
rolled gels of fruit

boil in a bag
shredded and chopped
preassembled and precooked
processed slop

C
we’re always in a hurry
a hurry to eat
no more than two minutes
two minutes to heat
we just squirt it or drink it
don’t cook or even think it
we’re always in a hurry
a hurry to eat

V2
tubes of yogurt
drinkable meals
synthetic proteins
dollar menu deals

dehydrated rice
freeze dried snacks
tear to open eat
one service packs

C
we’re always in a hurry
a hurry to eat
no more than two minutes
two minutes to heat
we just squirt it or drink it
don’t cook or even think it
we’re always in a hurry
a hurry to eat

B
it seems like this is a growing fad
but there are sometimes when it’s really bad
like when everyone is working or going to school
or when it’s writing songs...
songs with all of you

C
we’re always in a hurry
a hurry to eat
no more than two minutes
two minutes to heat
we just squirt it or drink it
don’t cook or even think it
we’re always in a hurry
a hurry to eat



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

Lots of nice details and descriptions. This is so real. People used to cook, fry and bake all ( or most ) of their own food. We've lost much when eating is made so easy and food is so fast. The bridge made me think that this fast-culture is everywhere. "Processed slop" really tells the story. Make it easy and the quality goes down too. This may be not the most typical end of the Challenge song but it's good anyway! Congratulations, Liz!

First off - CONGRATULATIONS on the very last song, LIZ!!
I can sooooo relate to your words. My wife had two major surgeries during 50/90 - one of the main reasons for my long absences - so I was doing quite a bit of laundry, cleaning, etc.
Naturally, we ate a lot more "fast food" while my wife was, and still is, recuperating.
Cheers,
John

Yeah, pre-made processed and fast food becomes a real thing for most folks when life gets busy...like during 50/90. I think it's important to enjoy your food though and eat things that make you feel good, as in, makes you feel energized and healthy, whatever that may be. Now that the songwriting frenzy is over, maybe we can all get back to that. Bon Appetit!

Congrats on getting the Very Last Song of 50/90 2019! I thought this was about FAWM--50/90 dining, but really it's about the accelerated pace of life and not having time to do anything else.

A couple of FAWMs ago @pfoo and I were eating a lot of frozen pizza. There was a bit of residue in the toaster oven and it caught on fire. "It was a small fire", we said. "That's a song title", I said.

I eat fast too so when you have this combo only the dog can eat faster than me. I like your song Liz you did a good job on it. The perfect song to end the posting songs to 5090. For awhile it looked like it was going to be some unknown who specializes in rap music. I was going to post a couple of holder songs until I noticed the traffic to the website was very heavy and changed my mind. Scrolling down the last page it's clearly there. Your bridge sums this group up "songs with all of you". I enjoyed all of your songs this year Liz
