    Ty Richards - Merry-Go-Round

    From my brain to yours. Enjoy.

    This marks the one year anniversary since this song was premiered by the screeching zombie Stalinists at 98.9 KUTX / KUT Austin. Just months before they banned me from the station and blacklisted me across all Austin clubs. So to celebrate, here's a surprise music video. 'Merry-Go-Round' is kind of new-wave pop, kind of punk-rock and a lot of I-just-don't-give-a-damn. I heard someone call this 'Nintendo-punk.' I support that description.

    No computers were harmed in the creation of this recording. It's hot off the tape, lo-fi and 100 percent analog. This album was recorded directly to quarter-inch 8-track tape and mixed live directly from a Tascam 388.

    Video released February 20, 2019

    LYRICS:

    Hollywood laughing in your face
    Lights, camera, action, now you're lost in space
    Rose-colored glasses help you see
    You can fly up to the moony through the TV screen

    Around and round and round we go
    Dizzy as we spin the truth around again
    Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round

    Middle finger to the man
    Cuz the lizard people run the PTA yeah
    Round earth is looking kinda flat
    Like a short stack with honey and a heart attack

    Around and round and round we go
    Dizzy as we spin the truth around again
    Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round

    Around and round and round we go
    Dizzy as we spin the truth around again
    Merry-Go-Round and round and round we go
    Dizzy as we spin the truth around again
    Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round

    Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round
    Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round
    Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round
