from Chris Merritt:

Virginia Is For Hoverers (Part II) (2010)

Doo doo doo doot

Do you see me? / Do you see me or am I just waiting? / Do you think I’m gonna lose it? / Do you?

Well, I tell you what / And I know you want another one / But I’m gonna take it light / And I’ll tell you like another one / And I’ll tell you like another one / And I want to be the wit

There’s trouble when I try to remember / There’s trouble anytime I try to remember / In Spring I can’t remember December / There’s trouble anytime I try and remember

Lately I’ve been caught in a dream / But I don’t want to make you sad about it / I don’t want to make you sad about it

Well I think I want another one / I think I won / And I think I want another one / And I think I want another one / I think I one / And I think I want another one

There’s trouble when I try to remember / There’s trouble anytime I try to remember / In Spring I can’t remember December / I never really ever surrender / There’s trouble anytime I try and remember

Lately I’ve been caught in a dream / But I don’t want to make you sad about it / I don’t want to make you sad about it

There’s trouble when I try to remember / There’s trouble anytime I try to remember / In Spring I can’t remember December / There’s trouble anytime I try and remember

Lately I’ve been caught in a dream / But I don’t want to make you sad about it / (About my dream) / I don’t want to make you sad about it

Pep-Pep – a reference to the grandfathers in Tim And Eric Awesome Show Great Job and Arrested Development, although Pop-Pop is used primarily in Arrested I think. This song is about an old man dying of Alzheimer’s disease. Personally I drew from my experience with my own grandmother, who has been battered by the disease for a few years now.

I’m so proud of this track. I actually sound like I know how to play guitar, even though this is an audio illusion. I quadruple-tracked this guitar as it was sitting on my lap, like a little piano, and I’ve tuned the guitar to an open 9 chord and invented my own system of minor and major chord fingerings.

This track seems influenced by Frank Black, one of my musical heroes.
