Forgotten Eyes (Indie Folk/2019)
Let’s close out April on a beautiful note. There won’t be a track tomorrow because I’ll be doing a State of the Newsletter post. The April playlist on Spotify and iTunes will be sent out as an exclusive email for our paid subscribers. Get yourself on the sender list with an upgrade to a $5 monthly subscription today.
Right from the opening drum beats you know you have a winner on your hands. The notes are warm and full of empathy.
Hollow-eyed on Eddie Street‚
No sirens to hear
Just trash and soiled needles clawing the veneer
And no crying but it is no less a tear
On the common cheek with which we smile
Hollow-eyed on Eddie‚ is it they or is it I?
Is it me who is more hollow as I'm quickly passing by?
And the poison is killing them,
But then so am I
As I turn away
Off the record
Speaking of empathy, here’s an example of copywriting gone wrong on an actual job description on LinkedIn. The person who wrote this copy and the person who signed off on it should both be fired.
