Still goin' down

BettySoo sings "Things are Going to Get Worse". Looking at the economic news, gotta agree...

  1. Such a rich, full voice to be coming from such a slip of a girl... Encapsulates my philosophy on life, although I top mine with a healthy dollop of "Enjoy whatever good things we've got now and be thankful, because we migh not have them a year from now."

  2. Yep, BettySoo is one heckuva singer-songwriter and does a damn fine job of capturing one of those "midnight of the soul" moments. Like you, I instantly recognized it. Unlike you, I also write songs and know that the closest I've ever come to capturing one of those moments have become very good songs ("Everything Turns To Shit" and "When I Was Younger") but nowhere near as apocalyptic as the general vision, and it takes one helluva songwriter to go there. I suppose living in Austin, where the barbarians are literally just outside the gates, helps. But there just is no substitute for talent, and BettySoo has that in spades.
