As yet another friend back at school asked what graduating is like, the idea dawned upon me to capture the sounds of this fascinating postgrad summer in the form of a 14-track album! I can’t currently fund the recording and production myself for these songs I’d like to write (see: first sentence), but you can!
The clear voice-of-a-generation-like potential is obvious from the following rough outline of the album, which I assume will open your wallets so hard they’ll pull a… something wallets have.
This upbeat, pop-y opener is about fresh-faced optimism and also how a bachelor’s degree doesn’t necessarily qualify you to take someone’s phone messages.
2. I Never Learned To Feed Myself feat. Pasta, Mostly
This upbeat, pop-y second track is about fresh-faced optimism about the nutritional value in Pop-Tarts and beer.
3. Moving Back Home
I feel like this is far enough along to get a little personal.
Sample Lyric: Maybe I’d mope less if I didn’t have to live / On the couch / On the couch / On the couch / Shut up, Mom
4. Entry Level Unpaid
Sample Lyric: 3+ yrs. / Exp. / Req. (Like techno-y? Something that’d communicate the repetitive, infuriating nature of this phrase, and also techno.)
5. How Do You Meet People Now feat. All Of My Exes (Remix)
I envision this as a “Mambo No. 5” for the generation that isn’t afraid to admit desperation. Eventually someone will find it endearing. Keep reading.
