Liner Notes: 

Sunfire...The idea of a family member making noise with her teeth after eating, really irritated me and distracted me from writing something, yet the TV on and loud enough for me to hear didn't phase me in the least. Go figure. So, the idea of little irritants or pet peeves mushroomed into a song idea. I think we all have them if we're honest.

Bill..i took liberties with some improvised lyrics, but all of surfires lyrics are intact, if somewhat strewn

Lyrics: 

lyrics by Sunfire

If you chew like a horse
If you slurp drinks with force
You'll turn my mind volcanic red
Should you bite off it's there in my way
Pet peeves, pet peeves
Yes, it's true
Heck, we've all got something
How bout you?

Do you blast your boom box?
Think you're sly as a fox?
Oh I'll try hard not to blow my top
Are you chronically late?
Do you like to tongue lick your plate?
Are you some one who will always flip flop?

I got pet peeves baby
Here what I say
It may be small to some
But it's there in my way
Pet peeves, pet peeves
Yes, it's true
Heck, we've all got something
How bout you?
your nails
Should you brag about your own tales
Then there are moments with you I will dread

I got pet peeves baby
Here what I say
It may be small to some
But
I do have a soft spot
Don't like to complain
But those things that bug me
Can drive me insane

I got pet peeves baby
Here what I say
It may be small to some
But it's there in my way
Pet peeves, pet peeves
Yes, it's true
Heck, we've all got something
How bout you?

Lol That voice is great and the sound effects in the background all work well together. I really enjoyed this.

Chewing drives me nuts and fills me with irrational rage, so I feel this song hard. The background noise adds to the chaos and emotion of the song. This is cool!

Ah, pet peeves, one of my favorite topics - lol! All that background conversation while you sing about pet peeves like a barker at a carnival doing impersonations. Ha! Love it!

Wow I read the lyrics first. Admittedly I was triggered because a lot of these are my personal pet peeves. LOVE the line “ You'll turn my mind volcanic red”
Great tune y’all!

Great descriptions of pet peeves in this. So many too! lol "You'll turn my mind volcanic red". Great rhythm in the words. And the vocal...so dramatic and it's a great approach with the effects. Puts us right there...it's like a catharsis and anyone who agrees can join in at any time!

Well done, the noises in the background create a good atmosphere, the vocal layering really works well!
