Liner Notes: 

Jerry here: Jimmy sent me this song a couple days ago. We have one more song to go after this one to fill up the CD. This one is guaranteed to give you a headache. I can't help it and I actually had a real headache myself the entire time I was working on this demo. That did not sleep well last night at all and even after a nap I still have a headache. I wanted rock music for this track and I think I got that. Thanks for listening.

Production notes: Band in a Box for the drums. Took me 4 hours to make this demo.


Still Fighting A Headache

Still Fighting A Headache
It was a bad one today, he put on his shades
Still Fighting A Headache
They are on his head if it is too late

He was hurting too bad to eat
His gaze dropped to the evening feast
He's using this time to relax
He reclined and then leaned back


The pain is dancing in his eyes
By The first touch of sunlight
He was rubbing the back of his neck
He cancelled his schedule to get some rest

All that night he didn't sleep
He moved in his bed and seat
It was becoming annoying
He hoped it would wear off by morning

He was so very tired
He thinks he broke the record
Still Fighting A Headache
But it's pretty standard
Still Fighting A Headache

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

i think this is the single from the album. you describe the feeling of a headache so well that i have one now too. you could work for bayer aspirin, boost their sales. really good vocals on this one in addition to the stellar guitars.

This is a fantastic song! I have to admit it gave me a little headache-but that's what it's supposed to do. Excellent!

I really love that heavy buzz on the bass and the sweet sizzle of the guitar shreds! This is really a great rock song as the guitars never just take it easy - it just gets better. No headache when I listened... LOVED the sound! And agree that lyrics could be taken very literally or more metaphorically. Kudos on a winning collaboration!

As someone is prone to migraines and entering into migraine season... I'll admit that this one was a little uncomfortable. The distortion captures the feeling well. The solo guitar is pretty awesome and the repetition in the lyrics... that's exactly what I do. "It's not so bad. I'm just going to take it a little easy. It's not so bad. It's not so bad." This is definitely a headache song, but in a good way.
