Ok, I’m a little late, but so what.  52 weeks (more or less), 52 songs.  I can hear trumpet fanfares in my head.  Awesome 


There You Go

Caught rotten,

Staring out a window at nothing in particular,

With a poor man’s excuse for a horizon in front of me.

I’ve definitely been this way before,

I’m just not sure I like the scenery all that much.

But there you go.


I just don’t know what I want.

I just don’t know what I want.

I just don’t know what I want.

I just don’t know what I want.


That’s really beside the point though,

Seeing as how all my messages get returned to sender.

I’m still busy subdividing my divisions,

Into smaller pieces of insignificance.


What does it mean? Why should we care?

Is that the 4, or the 4GS, or the Desire?

In all the cities in all the world is there anyone

Who is well qualified to answer your questions?


I just don’t know what I want.

I just don’t know what I want.

I just don’t know what I want.

I just don’t know what I want.


Everybody’s trying to be so cool, so calm, so collected,

But you should not let that fool you.

If you scratch that surface, just a little bit,

You will find it,

The panic that consumes.


It’s a hard old station -

As someone might once have said before me.

Let me tell you, life is not fair,

And every chance you get you must grab it,

With BOTH HANDS.


I just don’t know what I want.

I just don’t know what I want.

I just don’t know what I want.

I just don’t know what I want.

51 times, to answer my own question.  Ho ho ho.


Merry Christmas people!


Actually, I should clarify – this isn’t a Christmas tune. We are probably a little more like to end up on our arses this time of year, what with the ice and snow and whatnot, so the “get back on your feet again” message might be appropriate there 


One more to go.  Jeeebus.

Not for the first time, I’m late.  Sorry about that.  Late last week this tune was all electric guitar and beats.  It’s changed a little.  Just a smidgen.  On another point, and somewhat shamefully, it’s only the second TS@aW tune wth a banjo on it.


Tsk tsk…


On another point, song 50 out of 52!  Woooo!

biography
Irish musician Bill Coleman is becoming known as a bit of a ringmaster of gadgets, loops, laptops and guitars.

His live show channels influences ranging from Talking Heads to Neil Young. Pumped, joyous, upbeat songs sit next to moments of "you can hear a pin drop" silence. Audiences have been approving, which bodes well for the release of Bills second album later on this year.

In the meantime, the 'Black and Red' ep will give you an idea of what to expect.

"...a seriously energetic piece that should get living people dancing like idiots." - Easy Music for Difficult Ears

Amen
