The Big Red Rocket

A new song has been uploaded to the Elijah Wilbury page at Ukeland. This time its an original tune I wrote over the past couple days. Inspiration comes from the strangest places sometimes. This song was born from me watching Jackass Number 2 one too many times. It ocurred to me that the Big Red Rocket stunt was the perfect metaphor for a certain kind of relationship that some (all?) of us find ourselves in from time to time.

And this is a video clip of the scene that inspired the song:

Life has its ups and downs, and then there's those times that we're "straddling a rocket like a cartoon coyote". :) Love the lyrics and tune. A lot of fun! Beep-beep!

(I also thought the sound files you added for background was a nice touch.)

The background image on this page is a Hebrew translation of the verse from Bob Dylan's song  It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding), from which the title of this blog is taken. Translation courtesy of Yoram Aharon of Hod-HaSharon's page--found via YudelLine-- which has many Dylan lyrics in Hebrew.
