Culture (electric version)

Story Behind The Song

I previously uploaded an acoustic version of this song, but I knew that it would translate nicely into a Rock song. Once again Broadjammer Dave Haddad has added his inimitable drums and percussion.

A song about the wastefulness of modern life and how we can take things for granted.

Vinyl records on the sidewalk
On the pavement on the street
Furniture at the junk yard
In the trash can
While we just sleep

We're throwing away our culture
Our culture, our culture
We're throwing away our culture
Our culture
As I speak

Drones fill the sky
They're keeping their eye
On you and me
Information overload
Just do as you're told
Here comes a cold front

We're throwing away our culture
Our culture, our culture
We're throwing away our culture
Our culture
As I speak, yeah

We've giving up ground
We're losing our sound
We're lost in this town
Our buildings are dust
Our motors are rust
Our temperature's way down

Rags and bones
Rollin' Stones
Hearts and homes

They're throwing away our culture
Our culture, our culture
They're throwing away our culture
Our culture
I just weep

Good song, good mix, good production,
Good idea, good mood and attitude,
Nice job

Very nice tune and it's great to hear REAL instruments as a backdrop. What a difference from some of what I hear on Broadjam. This could be listed in Americana as well. I enjoyed the listen for sure!

Good song it's catchy. Love the clean guitar in the chorus
