Pop song with lyrics sung by me. The song is about my life philosophy: Live your life while you still have it and do not let anyone tell you that they know better than you, how to live your life.

The title sounds dramatic but the song is actually upbeat and should bring a smile to the faces of most people.

I would say this is more disco than pop. Nicely done but completely not my genre.

@livelargemusic - I am glad you got a good laugh. That was the whole idea

@pinkyrv - cheers - picture is from a vacation trip in South Africa. Enjoying the time until I die in the small village Franschhoek in a nice wine and food area.

@chryssalid - thanks for taking your time to comment. This song will not take any prices for the technical or compositional merits. Once I had written the lyrics for the first verse and the chorus and presented them to my wife in a rock fashion she looked a bit terrified. She found it dark and depressing. So I decided that to get the humour message of the song had to be given with a plain and simple pop or disco tune with a naive happy melody in the chorus. And I will say it works. When I played the current version for my wife she laughed and found it funny and cheerful. And that is how I am as a person.

The funny thing is that yesterday she texted me in the middle of the day writing: "It is a ***** ear hanger".

Unfortunately I don't know the ear hanger phrase. Do you mean that once listened it still sits in your head? If that so, it's kind of characteristic for this genre, known in my country as "disco polo". Some people love it, the rest of the others hate it. There's no one in the middle smiley. In spite of all still respect for the nicely done piece of music.

Hi Kenneth, I don't know what I'm more shocked by - the appearance of the "Explicit" tag in a song by you, your wife swearing in her text, or the dark subject matter! And funnily enough, the overall effect has been to make me smile - I laughed out loud when you said about your wife looking a bit terrified when you first presented this to her as a rock song! Great piece, and nice to hear your voice again, too.

Life is stuffing myself with steaks and fries
And I close my ears to the fanatic lies
Life is not religion or status or gold
Life is sex, and beer, and rock 'n' roll

where do i sign up for the Church of Kenneth?

This is GREAT, Ken! just the kind of self-affirmation i need (sometimes i think it's just me!)

You were born with nothing in a hospital bed
You are taking nothing with you when you're dead

Worth the listen, hope it's alright but but I laughed at some of these clever lyrics which amused me...

To my ipod as a reminder that to often I'm to serious

Pumping bass hooks me straight off. I like how the keys and vox come in ... reminds me of the Cars smiley Great pop song! Loads of intelligence, tight and fun. Excellent hook with the keys in the chorus.

@chryssalid - you are right. Ear hanger is Danish translated directly to English. In English the expression is an Earworm. But you guessed the meaning right


@ihussain - Diane actually sent a clean text. It is my memory that polluted it with my own thoughts smiley
Glad you laughed at the song. That was the idea

@thsantac - you bet I love wine

@MikeBrooks @PaulWilkins @sprkymrt @Deebeesea @RichardJohn @ShadowofNine @ant - happy the song made you smile

@pharmakeus - The Cars. Yes. A bit. I love that group. Maybe I should make a track in that style soon.

@brewchugger - you just transfer 1000 dollars to my account no 46352638365 and you will die happy and poor smiley

@zallaz - the purpose was to make people smile and laugh. And a little personal message to remember to enjoy life while you still have it

@pharmakeus & @KennethLavrsen - this totally has a classic Cars feel to it! That's exactly where I went when I heard this. Ken - you have a knack for really capturing whatever particular sound you are going for in your production.

You're Martin Heidegger with a pop beat. smiley
Very delightful in spite of its topic without being maudlin or naff. It is what it is with good reason. Lovely stuff!

I'm laughing at the Heidegger comment above but the frank realism you toss off with such smirky casualism is what we need in this world! Ian Hunteresque.
