It’s out! Another, brand new, Throwing Toasters song! It’s called UNFRIEND and it is available on iTunes, Bandcamp, CDBaby, Amazon.com and just about everywhere else that singles are available.
This song was written a year or so ago, right around the time I was just getting completely frustrated with Facebook and being on it. I absolutely love how this song turned out and the magic Steve Goodie did with the instrumentation and the background vocals. I think it is some of the most fun rock ‘n’ roll from Throwing Toasters in a long time.
When I wrote this song, I was pretty done with facebook. If you know me, or have looked for me on the social media site you know I don’t have an account. After several years, I began to realize that the social media service was just not my thing. The examples given in this song are pretty close to reasons why I left.
While recording this, Steve made the comment that he thought it was funny that at the end I say it’s my mom, making the whole song about her. That made the baby in the second verse me. Or a sibling. I thought this was pretty funny. I’d never thought of it that way. In my mind the song is about three separate people.
For the record, I was still friends with my mom when I left Facebook. The final verse is not about her. Honest.
So give UNFRIEND a listen. Rock out to it and let me know what you think. If you like it, consider requesting it on the Dr. Demento show by following the following link: http://www.drdemento.com/request/
