Liner Notes: 

Inspired by the song skirmish prompt "My Greatest Fear", which got me thinking about Talking Heads' "Fear of Music". One of my coworkers has been playing a lot of LCD Soundsystem, and as this song was coming together I realized how direct the line between those two bands is. All it took was a 909 clone and suddenly I have the urge to tell people that Daft Punk are playing a show at my house Wink Enjoy!

Lyrics: 

I don't know why I even got out of bed today
I don't know why I even left the house
I don't want anybody talking to me today
Don't talk to me, don't talk to me, don't tell me what you're thinking, no

I see it in your eyes, you're looking me over
Trying you're very best to figure me out
But boy, there's more to me than you can imagine, I've been through
shit you can't fathom, so baby shut your mouth, yeah

I don't know you
Don't talk to me, yeah
I don't know you
Don't talk to me now

When I walk down the street I look straight ahead, yeah
I keep my focus about half a block down
Lost in my headphones, yeah I'm doin' my own thing
Don't talk to me, don't talk to me, I don't care what you're selling, no

I know you probably think you've got a good reason
I know you felt the need to single me out
But I got somewhere to be, yeah I got shit to do
Don't pester me, don't waste my time, don't bring me down, no

I don't know you
Don't talk to me now
I don't know you
Don't talk to me, yeah
I don't know you
Don't talk to me,
Don't talk to me, don't talk to me,
Don't talk to me, don't talk to me,

Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't tell me what you're
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't tell me what you're
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't tell me what you're
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't tell me what you're
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't tell me what you're
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't talk, don't talk,
Don't talk, don't talk, don't tell me what you're

Lots of great energy to this track! Rock guitar plus looping synth stuff... fun effect over all!

Totally dig this, spot on with the Talking Heads feel mixed in with a harder edge.

This is great, decent production. I like the weird rubbery falling bass thing in the chorus.

This should get 'em on the dance floor. I really like the groove with the guitar, synth and bass--but it's the vocal that sells this thing

This is very groovy and danceable rock. I love the mick jagger quality to your voice! You carry this very very well!

"...I look straight ahead...lost in my headphones..." Yeah...
I used to consider myself a pretty friendly person out in public...introverted as heck but still liked to be friendly to folks. As the years go by, I'm more likely to be screaming along with you during the vamp instead. I even get tired of hearing myself talk...not that I do much of that anyway.
Butt-kicking sound here. LOVE the mesh of the synth with the guitar...all the instrumentation is simply tasty!
Just a great drive in that second half, was literally movin' it as I was working.
Great stuff
