Music: Michael W. Dean.
Words and voice: Phil Wormuth

This song is not microtonal, except that some of the note bends are intentionally not always 12-EDO intervals.


LYRICS:
“That Unfortunate Man”
Unphased by Elly’s rejection,
condescending “patrons,”
curbside critics,
and tourists on vacation,
his latest instillation
“That Unfortunate Man”
was not the hit he predicted.
The clown posters and nudes
are a ruse

too busy fidgeting in his chair,
slouching in a stone pose
(the essence of apathy)
rigorously held for hours
to actually make a sale.
Perfectly suited for this strange business –
untucked paisley shirt,
sitting on his cigarettes…

head bowed to the occasional, passing stranger
characteristically gawking in wonder and disgust.
Soon, he will be ready for an encore
(that’s when the rigor really sets in.)
Such a strange vocation…
there are times when it truthfully unhinges him.

When it really comes down to it, what is art for
…and why him?

When it really comes down to it, what is art?
When it really comes down to it, what is art?
When it really comes down to it, what is art?
When it really comes down to it, what is art?

  1. I really like this one Michael! I initially thought the duration was going to be a bit too much.
    I was erroneous.

    1. Thanks man!

      Yeah, I felt the same making it, and the last bit of making it convinced me otherwise.

      Oh, did you think there was a knock at your door? That’s the Easter egg in this song.
