    Here it is kiddies: my hit single. This is about as radio friendly I get; after this it's back to the weird stuff.

    A Confession of Weakness

    It's not about any romantic stuff, by the way, so don't you go gettin' no crazy ideas.

    Hey, I actually like it!

    I thought you wanted Nickelback sounding songs?

    Heh... I was kidding about the Nickelback wannabe stuff. I figured since it's my only song in 4/4, it's my "sellout" song.

    Yeah, the millions will be rolling in anytime now.....

    Your stuff kicks ass, man. This song is awesome. I just wish other "commercial" attempts were this good. :bassist:

    Dude, I definitely like it. It's a good mix of radiohead style electronica with the same coloration on vocals, with droning guitar. Add a mix of trashy cymbal sounds, and it realy rocks!

    Purdy cool stuff, Mr. Strange! :bassist:

    This thread caught my eye because I titled my most recent sound clip "Confessions of a Wanker." I saw your thread title while skimming and thought, "Hey, I didn't post my clip here, did I!?!"

    :)

    Good. When not in 4/4 you sound like you're writing the theme to Deliverance.

    But without the hillbillies. Or the banjo. Or the river, or Ned Beatty. Also, no squealing. Or Burt Rynolds.

    ...come to think of it, I may have been off in my initial assesment.

    ....that was supposed to be a compliment. I like Fuel for the most part.

    What ever happened to those guys? It seems that they were around about 4 or 5 years ago, then they dissapeared?!?

    I thought the Drummer looked familiar.
