Lyrics

'It's No Thrill' © Mark S. Ludes (MSL)
V.1
Times are getting' tough and the money's tight
And everything is costing us more.
Gas is up there, getting' so damn high
And my rent pushed me out the door.
You know money doesn't grow on trees
You can surely bank on that!
If it's truly the root of all evil,
We gotta find out where they plant!
V.2
Politicians tell us that it's ok,
Everything is gonna be fine!
Trouble is, they all think alike,
They're all out of their freakin' minds!
Every place I go, everyone I meet
Everything is so fast pace.
Pay this, pay that or don't come back.
No money - get outta my face!

Chorus:
Well I sure don't have much money, But I got me plenty of bills,
If it wasn't so sad it'd be funny, But believe me it's no thrill.
Well I sure don't have much money, But I got me plenty of bills,
Livin' in the land of milk and honey,
But believe me, but believe me, but believe me, it's no thrill.

(instr. GTR Solo)

V.3
Politicians tell us that it's ok,
Everything is gonna be fine!
Trouble is, they all think alike,
They're all out of their freakin' minds!
Every place I go, everyone I meet
Everything is so fast pace.
Pay this, pay that or don't come back.
No money - get outta my face!

Chorus:
Well I sure don't have much money, But I got me plenty of bills,
Livin' in the land of milk and honey, But believe me it's no thrill
Well I sure don't have much money, But I got me plenty of bills
If it wasn't so sad it'd be funny, But believe me....
But believe me, but believe me, but believe me, it's no thrill.

"It's No Thrill"!

really get a ZZ vibe from this.
production is very good with a punchy, warm bottom end.
Imaginative melody that's a nice contrast to the groove of the song.

strong lead guitar work throughout.

Hook is effective and nicely "different" and I liked the double panning of the vocal track as well as the subtle but effective use of backing vocals

Really meaningful tune with a good message and a solid groove. Guitar work is fantastic. Top notch arrangement.

Love the opening groove and riff - got me from the start - yeah man the vox are right in the pocket with excellent production on the vox. A massive tasty lead guitar. Ok I am in and a fan. The concept is very cool---- who is this guitarist?...and the choppy biting rhythm smokes. A really good live tune no doubt. The arrangement also adds some turns and unexpected magical moments.

Good vocal pitch and style ... has a bit of a Dire Straits vibe

Good guitar work. Enjoyed the leads. Vocal Harmony in the chorus was a nice change of pace. Lyrics had a good flow to them. Song length was good. overall it was an entertaining song that i do believe has potential with a couple changes.

From the get go, this song has power, what an intro! I love the groove and the guitar riff, very catchy and contagious. Great energy!

Great lead guitar work. Nice guitar tone. Definitely different vocally. I especially like the guitar work.

Guitars are awesome! The overlapping vocal parts are throwing me off a little bit, but that's just me. Nice work!
