Salamiguy -thanks for the info bout the van Zandt site!

Nice little tune from a norwegian band that sums up what I feel of most of the bands out there.

Whopper -This Is Not A Song
This is not a song.
It’s not a rebel hit,
another white hype
from the girls that we like
and respect.
Oh man,
there’s a new shiny band
and they’re playing this song.
We all sing along,
how long.

There’s a song on the playlist,
but the words don’t mean a thing.
But the words don’t mean a thing.

If you don’t have the man,
you don’t have a band.
And if you don’t have a hit,
well then that’s pretty much it.
Come on, you’ve been
making these songs,
but if you don’t keep it simple
you’re not gonna stay.
And away.

There’s a beat on the billboard.
I think I’ve heard that beat before.
There’s a beat on the billboard.
I think I’ve heard that beat before.

There’s a band full of boys
and everyone sings.
They’re 29,
but they do different things.
One of them is tough
and another is sweet.
And they all shout their songs
as they walk down the streets.
There’s a girl on TV,
she plays the guitar,
she makes her own songs.
They say she’s gonna get far.
She really likes jazz,
but she’s playing this pop.
And her singles go,
dum dum dum di dum.

Somewhere, someone make a love song,
play it to the one you love.
No more Sting covers,
no soul funk lovers
and the bands on MTV.
They don’t do anything for me.
This is not a song.
This is not a song.
This is not a song.
This is not a song.
This is not a song.
