Hank Would Be An Angry Man
© MBJ Aug 13/07

Well it's just like a little jungle
This head space that we're in
We're rollin' for a goal line fumble
A patriotic life of sin

The music that we used to dance to
Has gone and got a little bit strange
There ain't no words to describe this jam
But old Hank would be an angry man

Well old Hank must've seen it comin'
He was one step ahead of the game
So he just up and kicked it
To save the whole family from shame

Well America's next idol
Could be livin' in the Holy Land
Lookin' for a rhyme in the bible
Playin' in a military band

But the music that they're playin'
Don't sound that good no more
There ain't no words to describe this jam
But old Hank would be an angry man

Well old Hank must've seen it comin'
He was one step ahead of the game
So he just up and kicked it
To save the whole family from shame

You're bitter and you're sad
You're naked and you're proud
Down on your knees in pain
Ballin' like a little child

(Reapeat 1st Verse and Chorus)

It aint bad but and correct me I may be wrong, it needs to be tightened up alot I don´t know if you have used a metronome in recording but at places in the song the elements are running away, and into each other but not playing together which makes it confusing.
I´m not writing this to be a smartass
Good luck with the project

Well it's a good song. Plenty catchy. The individual instruments sound good and the balance is pretty good.

But everybody seems to be feeling the rhythm differently. The way the guitars are panned - one left and one right - makes this discrepency in rhythmic feel very apparent. They aren't strumming together. They're hitting the accents slightly off from one another. i think that's what is largely keeping this recording from sounding cohesive. The whole thing just sounds a little unglued.

My guess is that you're looking for a way to groove around the programmed drums a little. My suggestion would be to figure out which guitar track is better locked in with the bass and then re-record the other guitar paying special attention to where the first guitar is accenting it's strums.

Vocals are sounding good.

Great song...well great lyrics....I like songs that tell a story and have a point of view but there is alot of work to be done on the instrumentation.....def worth persevering with though....are you a writer or performer?

For me the vocals sound veiled. Maybe not loud enough. And is that some chorus or doubling of some sort on the voc ? And I agree track could be tighter.

Good thing to give us the lyrics. Songwriters should do it more often.

Bad thing I don't have a clue.

Exactly what are you (or the song) complaining about?

I'm not Jewish. Not American. Not Hank. Your point?

I'm not trying to be an asshole. Let's have a discussion about the lyrics. If you please.
