Why Isn't Anyone Listening to my Song?
Is this just a transparent and somewhat pathetic plea for someone to listen to and comment on my other song (The Derelict's Song, *49986, now a four day old zong)?
Oh surely not! Totally unrelated! But, you know, inspiration where you find it and all that...
Just to be clear, big Catalytic Perverter fan here.
Cleaned it up, sounded good
Made sure the words could be understood
Then I added some notes and
Pushed it on through
I wrote some comments, checked on back
Wrote some more then got a snack
And checked again
Every hour or two
Why isn’t there anyone listening to my song?
Did the upload fail? Do my vocals flail?
what did I do wrong?
After a day or so, I start to get a bit concerned
But it’s the middle of summer, everyone’s off
When they get back my song will get its turn
But then I notice that the number of zongs
doesn’t seem to increase
Just some lyrics only, some open jams
And my poor neglected piece
Why isn’t anyone listening or commenting on my song?
Does it somehow offend? Now I can’t pretend
Something must be really wrong!
Maybe I missed a point of etiquette
I bet I made someone really upset
That’s happened before, but not today
All my other songs are getting some play
Maybe this one is just really bad
It’s out of tune or makes everyone mad
But I listen again, and nothing needs to be saved
I like it a lot, I star it as a fave!
I guess it’s impossible to justify
The ebb and flow of eyes online
Just have to accept the fact
Sometimes a song falls through the cracks
And maybe in week or so
After working through the jams of plain white toast
Someone will notice that song of mine
And they’ll listen in, and write me a line
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
