Within a day or two of discovering Garageband in July of 2004, my landlord tried to evict me. While I fumed over the inequity of it, I started writing songs on "that new program I just found". Clicking on that little guitar was a darn good decision.

Fast forward to today and guess what? My landlord is once again threatening eviction. She's been doing it every few months since that very first time in 2004. My apartment is rent-controlled and I pay significantly less than anyone else in this building and in this neighborhood. So she makes up reasons to evict me in an attempt to make my life miserable enough that I'll want to leave.

So it's time for cheery little eviction song, doncha think?

Very nice and I really enjoyed it. I heard that they used to make stevie wonder mad on purpose so he'd have more feelings in his songs in the 70s. I get the same joy that I get out of Nina Simone here thanks for sharing your pain smiley

Hi Joanna!

Is that a finger/cheek pop I hear? Delightfully charming!

I've never been a landlord...don't want to think how difficult it would be...Oh I suppose there's always a Snidely Whiplash in the group!!!!

Your song cheered me up! And I have a feeling it did the same for you!

Nice to have ya back!!!!!

Thank you Hiphop, Ruby, Moe, and Pharm! I really appreciate you all stopping by for a listen and a comment! Ruby - my hands were too involved playing the uke to put a finger in my cheek. I do it a weird way: I flick my tongue against my upper lip. It gives me far more control (I can "pop" a song by changing the shape of my mouth) than with a finger on the cheek and it leaves my hands free. I am so weird!

Thanks again to you all!

Tenants of the world unite and make this your marching tune! An utterly adorable and unexpected mix of GB, a Landlady and a Ukulele - great stuff! (And "Music's coming from my face" is officially my favourite lyric of the week - cheers!)

Great track, Jo. I have a similar arrangement here in the dumplex. You gotta love rent control.
