about

I wrote this in October of 2017, just after the Northern California firestorms. The chorus had been swimming around in my head for a while, but it wasn't until some of the events described in the verses actually went down, that the rest of the song came to me quickly one day and I wrote it down. Made a date at Lost Monkey Studios, Mikey Stevens' place in Hayward, to knock it out. Mike played a small kit of old Ludwig drums - just kick and snare, with brushes on the snare. I played acoustic guitar and sang and we hit it together in one pass after a practice run. He overdubbed tambourine and I played an electric guitar solo and we called it! I blasted the track in my car on the way home and then recorded the remaining overdubs and vocals to the puzzlement of my cat. A few weeks later I mixed and mastered it up to share as my holiday gift to friends and fam near and far and anyone who might enjoy. Cos Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby, I Love You!

lyrics

In 1970 they said it's gettin' hot,
And we should ride our bikes and burning fossils we should stop,
Exxon Mobile said it's a liberal hoax,
And global warming was the butt of all their jokes,
Now, all these improvements are making matters worse,
Upgraded my system, and now it doesn't work,
If this is winning, then I'd prefer to lose,
If they say march and fight then I will eat my boots,

Cos baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby I love you

The sky is falling, alerts are comin' fast,
There's no water pressure and you cannot find some gas,
We must evacuate but there's nowhere to go,
747 dumpin' red upon the glow,
The roads are jammed but we gotta move,
Can't stay here, well, we can't go there,
Grab important papers, pictures of the fam,
Keys and wallets phone and we just gotta scram,

Cos baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby I love you

I know you're busy 'cos you got things to do,
But the gleaming of the moon in your eye,
Is the whole universe, shining through the multiverse,
Oh the things that come to mind,
I'd drop my job, leave my home and close the tab out at the bar where I spend way too much time,
I'd sell the car and buy a ticket to the middle of nowhere if that's a place you'd like,

Cos baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby I love you

about

Eric Din Berkeley, California

I'm a guitarist and singer-songwriter with The Uptones. These are my solo recordings. I started doing this a few years ago with the general intention of compiling an "album" over time, but lately I'm feeling more like they are stand-alone singles. They're like journal entries. They each seem to reflect where my head was at at a point in life. I enjoy making them. Hope you enjoy listening to them! ... more
