This is a blog about the What do you think? Lyric video

Since launching Sam Paul earlier this year at some point, the joke I have made the most is something like “I’m not sure if it sounds shitty on purpose, or if it just sounds shitty.” It’s that classic self-depricating wit that people have come to expect when they go to Sam Paul to get their Sam Paul going.

What do you think? is the best example of “I’m not sure if it sounds shitty on purpose or if it just sounds shitty.” The song is not in time. It is a two part form that repeats 3 times. The third time through the form, if you listen carefully, you can hear me saying “shooka shooka shooka shooka” into a microphone.

Bianca said something to me about the mellotron choir like, “I mean maybe don’t just make it feel like you’re there pressing down a button.”

That’s what I wanted though. And ultimately, whether it sounds shitty on purpose or just sounds shitty, I am pretty happy about this EP.

I am also waiting for my 4 lyric videos to win some kind of short film award. I think this one really ties it all together. Someone notify the Oscar people for me.
