Lyrics:
I'm Leaving the play today,
I don't want to act anymore-
The Producer is stingy,
I live on Skid Row.
The landlord is nosy,
And Lives right below

I'm leaving the play today,
I don't want to act anymore-
The Director's obtuse,
Everybody says so
The part that he gave me,
You Don't want to know...

Well, I try to ad-lib, but the man is absurd
He says I must follow the script word for word

I'm leaving the play today,
I don't want to act anymore-
The other actors complain and get by
They blame one another,but I don't know why!

No, I don't know why this play is in such dissaray,
That's why I am leaving today!

Thanks for the free download! Very cool tune-- I love the Waltz rhythm, and the unusual subject matter. Very Paris, 1880!

Thanks for the + feedback! This one has a sad back story, but I think you're right. It's basically a pretty cool tune :)

Gremlin gave feedback to WalaWalaWala for “I'm Leaving the Play”:
Really diggin' the vibe on this track. Sort of has an old tin pan alley/minstrel show feel to it which is refreshing.
The lyrics are probably my fav part though, with their lightheartedness.
Y'all seem to be a tight band, keep cranking out the good tunes. : )

Thanks! It's a free track. One of my favorite recordings of ours, esp. considering it was sort of on a whim. Thanks again. Wrote this when I was suicidal-- true story, but yeah it should be funny, sort of :D I love the old tin-pan-alley, vaudeville, style etc.

Not sure why but reminds me a bit of Decembrists, i like the style and they lyrics...harmonizing is great-verses sound a bit (empty?) but i think its just the recording quality of the drums...keep it up its really enjoyable to listen to :)

Thank dipper! It's a free download too. This recording was done live (at a band practice). I like it more than the 'final version' we got, but it is lo-fi. Thanks again. -Shoham

Michael Bond gave feedback to WalaWalaWala for “I'm Leaving the Play”:
Very nice. This is a pretty original sound (to me anyway), and I was impressed by how something seemingly simple could be so good.

Thanks-- greatly appreciate. Decide to set it for free based on your + feedback :D It's inspired by old-time vaudeville, which I like a lot.

Frowned Upon gave feedback to WalaWalaWala for “I'm Leaving the Play”:
I like the lo-fi vibe. I think a cool sound might be to close-mic the snare and bass drums (maybe an RE20 or 421 on the bass and a 57 or a 414 on the snare?), and bring those tracks up on the second or third verse.

Wow, thanks. This was actually a demo-- I like it better than the 'final version'. Great, in depth suggestions. Sounds like you really know drums/miking!

Thanks again,
