Here is a musical reaction to all the dirty little secrets oozing out of the crevices in recent years...
If you are not guilty...
I hope you enjoy this throwaway song from 2018 FAWM.

Technical Info:
Song: MeToo.Mgu
Style: NG004x.Sty (Changed to Real Tracks but that information has been lost blush )

Jim you are very good at using simple little musical phrases and singing on top of them with a memorable lyric! You have once again produced something that really works! Thanks, Torrey

Yep, the video is fun but the sentiment is powerful and the movement is long overdue.

Torrey pretty much nailed our thoughts about the write and production.

Throwaway? We are glad you didn't and shared it with us!

Fun and to the point.
The FAWM deadline seems to work well to get the ideas flowing.

love it Jim

well done, video is excellent

catchy, timely, to the point

we've become a super paranoid and butt-hurt society

there's legitimate problems and then there's college students

needing a time out because words and reality offends.

good vocals, love it

Jim,
Ha ha! funny! I agree 100% with Kenny's comments above.
I guess it is one of the most effective and smart ways to show flaws in society - through satire.
Nicely put together and performed! I wish you well & not to be eaten by hypocrites.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Cute song and video Jim!! Yes, the me too movement has taken out a lot of people....and the vast majority (at least) seem to be deserving of that. Fun stuff!! Take care. Greg

Jim,

Love the sound of this one—very catchy, some really great instrumentation. And married with that “me too” refrain, it borders on ear worm territory. Well done!

All the best,

Deej

Nice!

I find it interesting that people are giving it diametrically opposed interpretations.

It reminds me that sometimes, saying less is actually saying more, because it allows people to read their own ideas into lyrics.

In any event, I enjoyed the listen. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks Robert...
Your support & comments are always appreciated...
I agree with you about the value of FAWM deadline...
However with Biab 14 songs ideas in 28 days is pretty easy to reach...
If the participant doesn't mind giving up some sleep.
