A little drinking sing-a-long for anyone who's ever had a mate fall for the one person who is totally wrong for them. It's happened to us all, but you can never see until afterwards that that Angel from Heaven was actually an Orc from Mordor. Hope you enjoy!


PS There's a companion piece to this song called "Lie, Steal and Cheat"

Lovely performance, nice lively loose production - the vocal mix and all over atmosphere are just incredible. I can almost smell the drink and tobacco smoke.

Oh, lordy! Have I known more than one person who could have used someone singing this song to them. Needless to say, I loved this! Great tune, love the vox -- and I suppose it goes without saying that I love the lyrics. This one merits 5 stars and two big thumbs up!

NowNows, now I know why you are my worst enemy at iComp. I could never beat you in a fare fight.... So look out... I'm taking the gloves off. I'm going to play dirty next time I am up against you. This song is simply perfect. the subject, the music, the vocals, the lyrics, the mix. You just wrote a timeless classic.


Hat off, head bowed, humble.

Cheers friend

On so many levels this song is great. It isn't only about a girl..... it's about drugs and alcohol and smokes.... it's about addiction. It's about.... so many things. My god these words speak to me. OK.... no more comments from me....

I tried to edit the first one but it wouldn't let me.

GD it, Martin. You are too good! Aren't you embarrassed by the fact that you're so good? Seriously, this is awesome. Simply awesome. You have the best voice (and singing personality) I've heard in a really long time. I can definitely see this being on an album. So, what are the individual tracks? An accordian, strings, and rhythm guitar plus vocals. Perfectly mixed, great arrangement, wonderful lyrics and vocals, nice rhythm guitar part, which is almost not noticeable but still adds body to the song (it's always a good sign to me when a mix is so tight that an audible part is nevertheless not noticeable; sort of like not noticing special effects in movies, if that makes sense). I have nothing I can add as far as suggestions. Really, really great. You need to go get a recording contract...and now.

Very original... It's funny very funny...
Cause I ran into one of them today....
And my Friend who she belongs too,
is in a world of hurt....
She's got a big ring in his nose and
he'll never see the light until she gives
him the old left, right combo and she'll
kick him to the curb with nothing but
bad memories....
You hit the nail on the head with this one....
By the way... Real Cool Vocals...

I............LIKE IT......... but not her....

How often does a song change your life? Maybe more than one thinks... maybe not. This one... reaches deep down inside of me and tries and tries... My God it tries... Thank you. I can hear it even when I'm not listening... as well as when I do.
