TUNE James Deacon - Mr Misery
I try to be a positive guy for the most part, but sometimes I have trouble with the cynical, negative Debbie-Downer side of myself. This song came about at around 4:00am, as I stumbled to the kitchen to get some water, the melody and chanted delivery of the opening line for the song came to me and it kinda developed from there. It’s basically the dark side to my debut track “Not Givin’ Up”, because as much as I believe that persistence and positivity are the keys to success, I think a healthy tolerance and understanding of the undesirable aspects of ones mind is just as important. Mr Misery is a metaphor for my bad side, and the song itself is a kind of resilient juxtaposition to my debut track.
