The Blues Don’t Discriminate
The blues they don’t discriminate
The blues don’t pick and choose
Anybody can suffer, baby
Anybody can have the blues

Anybody can feel as if
The sun will never shine
Anybody can feel like they have
Wasted all of their precious time

The blues they don’t discriminate
The blues don’t pick and choose
Anyone can suffer, baby
Anyone can have the blues

Anyone can stumble
Anyone can fall
Anyone can feel like they’re trapped
And backed up against the wall

The blues they don’t discriminate
The blues don’t pick and choose
Everybody can suffer, baby
Everybody can have the blues

The blues
The blues
I said the blues
Oh yea, the blues

Everybody can buckle under
When it all gets to be too much
Hearts are primed to burst asunder
If never they feel that loving touch

The blues they don’t discriminate
The blues don’t pick and choose
Everybody can suffer, baby
Everybody can have the blues
Everybody can suffer, oh yea
Everybody can have the blues

Peter & Leon,

"The blues they don’t discriminate
The blues don’t pick and choose
Anyone can suffer, baby
Anyone can have the blues"

HA! I like it.

The song was surprisingly upbeat sounding (for a Blues number). The horns are cool. Nice guitar work. A strong vocal.

It seem to go by quickly. So I cued it up again...

Very nice, Leon and Peter!

Enjoyed the lyrics/vocals.

Good solo work, Peter, especially liked the dual guitars at the end, and the way you brought that horn and guitar in for that last note. Nice!

"Everybody can buckle under
When it all gets to be too much
Hearts are primed to burst asunder
If never they feel that loving touch".

Superb lyrics, and that's just an example. Loved the song, I can just imagine how someone with "the blues" can relate to and enjoy this song, too. Loved the modulations into the minor, then back into major ... enjoyed the singing, too.

It feels like a pity to analyse this song too much, because it stands well on its own and analysing it feels like picking at a flower or something (wish I had a better, clearer example, but there you go). So I'm just going to say: really enjoyed it, thanks for sharing it with us!

Thanks floyd - I guess you'd call it a happy blues about the blues?

Peter & Leon,
even your sad tunes are positive and uplifting. Easy to follow lyrics / rhyme.
Horns work very well with crunchy guitar, but I think they would benefit a bit more reverb.
Nice one! Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Thenhorn section playing is cool the attack & release is very good...a little reverb boost would sit tem a little better though.
Assured vocal and solid arrangement.
Well done.

The seemingly very different real tracks work surprisingly well in this one. Nice guitar work and a good vocal. I liked my listen, Tom

This is quite the jaunty song. I was bopping my head along as I listened. Catchy chorus. And as always, the guitar work is primo.

Blues with a super vocal and some very sweet guitar leads is something that I love. You guys nailed it! Super use of the horns as they were perfectly placed. The mix was great.

“Everybody can buckle under
When it all gets to be too much
Hearts are primed to burst asunder
If never they feel that loving touch”

Great lines (of many).

And nicely delivered by Leon and that guy who
sings a little.

Like Dave we found the outro to be cool and creative (I’m pretty sure we’ve heard that guitar guy before and we do like his dueling playing).

It's all capped off with a great band (love the horns) and a mix that makes it all
sound like it was happening in the same room. Love the soundstage.

Another fine collab y’all!

J&B
