It’s so easy to write a losing song

Cigarettes and alcohol, but no shoes
How much does Attack in Black/Daniel, Fred & Julie songwriter Daniel Romano hate the music industry? This much: his solo debut contains not one but two anti-industry rants which are called “Workin’ for the Music Man” and “Workin’ for the Music Man Pt. 2.” Oh yeah, the album is called Workin’ for the Music Man too.

On the folk rocking single “A Losing Song,” Romano appears to be in the grips of a career crisis, asking, “Why should I even play the chords? / Why should I even make a sound?” Sorry Daniel, I don’t have an answer for you. But the pedal steel leads and falsetto chorus sure are pretty.
