Liner Notes: 

BROMINE!

I didn't realize how nasty an element bromine was till I did some reading up on it.

Anyway.

This really needs a proper electric-guitars-and-drums-and-harmonies recording but it's not getting that today.

guitar, 'singing' - me

Lyrics: 

BROMINE
BROMINE
You're awful mean
BROMINE

No known helpfulness to life
Used largely in insecticides
A deep oily red in hue
It's best for me to avoid you

BROMINE
BROMINE
You're awful mean
BROMINE

Irritating to the eyes and throat
Can produce sores when it hits skin
Formerly used in medical compunds
But it can cause cancer consumed within

BROMINE
BROMINE
You're awful mean
BROMINE

Hey there 35
I'm gonna stay away
brominated vegetable oil
no longer part of my day
(farewell, Mountain Dew)

BROMINE
BROMINE
You're awful mean
BROMINE



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

A catchy tune about a horrible element. Every day is educational. I learned something new. It's amazing what they add to everyday stuff.

I like this acoustic, that's some great riffing....... if adding/redoing with electric later my opinion would only be sparingly maybe in that last verse when there's some palm muting going on, but then of course full out fuzzed punky rocker for Bromine's sake is also really fitting........ just thoughts, another great periodic one!
