The question of who is going to pay for all this has not been asked for many years.
We already pay for it. But it's getting more and more expensive...
And it will never become cheaper. Unfortunately.
And since we (and I write consciously we, because each of us contributes its part to the destruction) continue to destroy the earth and its innumerable animals and plants with all power, nevertheless our planet will cope with it.
Because the earth has something that we are slowly running out of and will seal our end: TIME !

Ok Marty. After so much negative now the positive.
Your song is incredibly good
You sing it really great.
When you sing louder I like your voice even better.
Dave does a great job again.
His guitar solo is excellent
An impressive song with a lot of depth that should definitely make you think.
Steve is certainly as excited about the song as we all are
Thanks for this, Marty
Many greetings
Andi ;-)


Thanks, Andi. A very balanced comment. hehe. Hey, if I ever miss one of your posts here, please nudge me.

Thanks, James. I had a good time playing some of your music for friends yesterday.

Good BAND choices. Nice vocals. Well mixed.

Dave's guitars sound great (of course).

A very nice video, too...

Enjoyed.

Thank you, Floyd. Steve's birthday is the 21st of this month. We wrote and played in bands together for 6 decades. Once when we were at Scepter Records (we were 18), we stayed up all night writing 23 verses for a song. A long story.

Thanks, Janne. Sting was too expensive.

Nice one.


Thanks, jptjptjpt, and I'm getting much better at typing your moniker.

Yes, Ray, totally agree that the planet will be more or less unaffected by our selfishness. We say we're killing the planet, but that's just because we think we are the center of the universe. We're only killing ourselves.

"There's payments due. We cannot charge them" Yep. Indeed.

Ain't gonna parse it out as excellency rules with the vocals, lyric, bass and Dave's fine electric/acoustic contributions.

Thanks for reviving this ... and Sting smile

And the vid imagery was spot on.

Well produced!

Misha.

P.S. I think we can "try" all we want to be aware of the issues, strike for a lighter footprint., but nature has a final word. There is a dark joke about corona. (Corona-Latin crown)
"Man says to nature: I am the King of the world....Nature says: - Of course you are, here is a corona."


Thanks, Misha. It's unfortunate that the message is still relevant.

So, that is why I enjoyed it much,

Hi, Hans. Thanks. So glad you liked it.

Thanks, Vic. Your opinion matters a lot.

Thanks, Torrey. She was just the motivation to write the song. We didn't really think she'd pick it. Well, maybe Steve did. We played almost every song The Beatles recorded, including the pre-George Martin stuff.

Marty this is your best to date!

Sorry to hear about Steve.

You're right put a guitar in Dave's hand and he is immediately in his comfort zone. Excellent chops Dave.

Unfortunately Dave this message is more true today then it was in the early 1990s. Excellent vocal, mix, and lyrics.

Loved it.

Nice work.

I never heard it either, Herb. And, yes, it is a good thing if she was to sing on it. wink Steve and I did, however, get a cassette of some San Fran band doing this song.

Totally agree, TuneMonger. "Your DIsh" is on the same page.

Ah, thanks for mentioning that phrase, David. I always thought it was funny too. It was originally "illegal fluorocarbons" but "The outlawed" sang better.

Thanks, Dave. Have I told you lately that I really really like you? Haha. You legitimize my songs, man.
