This is Your Life

Denny Carleton

Satirical social concious pop songs in a progressive style with roots in the 60's

THIS IS YOUR LIFE

This Is Your Life is nothing but a TV show With people you used to know but can't forget This is your life throw in joy and regret But Oh what a night when this is your life

The price is right for the prize behind the door Not one cent more than it's worth Count the cost there's no gain without the hurt The burdens light when the price is right

Survey says that there's a family feud between me and you and us and them Survey says there's no art in being rude so what can we do let's try again

This is your life see your love when your 4 feet tall And your teacher made you stand in the hall This is your life throw in joy and regret But oh what a night when this is your life

Survey says that the world may be ending soon Or we may go circle the moon Survey says it don't mean anything So they play the game and try to win

Who wants to be a millionaire Survey Says if the Price is right If there's no family feud and the burdens light Your final answer is this is your life The final answer is this is your life

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Denny Carleton

Folk home tape.

Between A Rock and a Hard Place REVIEW REVIEW-BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE Ritchie Unterberger All Music Guide

---There's nothing trendy about Carleton's home tapes, even in the lo-fi world. This not lo-fi in a sense that makes it hard to listen to.The music is tuneful, personal, folky rock, with a likably grainy, yearning quality to the vocals.

Lyrics have a plaintive, hopeful quality, and are slightly eccentric: what is one to make, for instance, of the line "Some men do it in churches, some men do it by tearing butterflies in half"?

Denny's idiosyncratic pop has a consistent warmth and sincerity, and his vocals have a quavering direct quality that one finds in Roger Mcguinn and a young David Bowie.

This tape could benefit from better production, but maybe not; in the climate of 1987, it's hard to imagine a record label getting hold of this material without trying to sand it down to normal pop, instead of concentrating on making the performances and arrangements a little tighter. -- ,
