SONG PICK: Anna Aaron – Why Not?
Anna Aaron, musician from Basel, Switzerland, is having it: “Why not suck at the most basic human decency?” In her 3:10 minutes rant, she bitterly complains about somebody’s inability to so things the right way. A mean baseline, booming drums, lots of cowbells and her deadpan vocals help to bring the point over effectively. Anna gives some background:
I wrote ‘Why Not’ very fast in the spirit of the moment. The lyrics however were challenging to write because I wanted them to be cutting but also funny; so to make it work I had to maintain a high tension between precision and delirious ranting.
