Thing a Week 36 – Not About You
Ah, denial. Sometimes it’s the only thing that keeps you going. This one cried out for hand claps from start to finish, but I resisted – the first step is admitting you have a problem.
Funny story: while I was recording this, I got a call from the Gin Blossoms. They want their pre-chorus back.

Sweet first coment! As usual great work JC (Although this reply is not about you) great work!
Hey, the Gin Blossoms called ME last week, too! They want all the stuff I took out of their van back.
I love it and I clapped throughout. Sorry.
Oh my god, so awesome, this kicks "your so vain" in the ass with a steel toed boot.
With all of these not-taking-the-breakup-well-and-being-kind-of-obsessive-and-dysfunctional songs, I can't imagine what your lady might be thinking. I wish her well.
Yeah, Ian has a point there, i was incredibly surprised that you had a wife, we need to have a song about marriage for a thing a week one day.
Eric Ginsberg says
GREAT work! I love the song (especially the chorus). LOVE the synth in the chorus. My only ciritcism is that it seems unfinished. After the third chorus, I was hoping for a bridge, maybe a solo, and then the chorus one more time, with a repetition of "Yeah, shove it up your big fat ass. This one is not about you." Your thoughts?
Is it just me or does the beginning of the song sound a lot like That Spells DNA?
Yeah, I once broke up with a girl because she stopped returning my phone calls, too...
I love it lve it love it! Damn you and your songs that stick in my head forever.
He already wrote a song about marriage, Alex - it's called "Shop Vac". Wonder what his wife thinks of that one. :|
I happen to think it's awesome.
Very nice, catchy song; another excellent TAW. I agree with Eric, however, that it is somewhat unsatisfying in the way it ends. An extra chorus or something would really meaten out the finish.
Hey, have you ever considered hand claps? I know, it sounds crazy...but just hear me out on this one. You could use hand clapping as a rhythmic device! I'm certain this has never been done before, so I'm not sure how it would turn out, but I bet it would be totally sweet.
This is an awesome song! And Zaiem if you read the Origional post JoCo said he had a urge to ad hand claps.
JOCO IS AWESOME! although that was apparent. One of my friends said if it weren't for JOCO his life wouldn' have meaning.

This is really about me, isn't it?
I'm looking forward to the Sci-Fi Zone. Megan seems pretty cool, but I'm a little concerned about her romantic pursuits. This new guy seems like trouble.
wow. awesome. Perfect timing for me unfortunately. I am going to rock out to this while not thinking of my ex-girlfriend now.

Very nice, Jonathan. This no doubt will get played over and over and over and over.. and over and over..
