The Wishing – So Over You

This is The Wishing’s first ever performance to a handful of people at Fete De La Musique 2010 in KL. So Over You is the working title of the song, we still haven’t got a proper title yet 😛 and it’s the second song we wrote. Lyrics are basically self-explanatory (really), and I hope you guys enjoy it!

The Wishing – So Over You

I woke up this morning and I realized I didn’t care if you dreamt of me last night
We can both be such pricks
But that’s alright
Couldn’t care less if you’re seeing him or if he completes you
Have a nice life and stay away
Can’t say I miss your taste (or face)

Here’s the final nail in the coffin
That I buried so long ago
And I really hope you hear this song
Because I want to let you know
That I’m, so over you (so over you)
That I’m, so over you (so over you)

It’s been two years since we ended things, you told me you were migrating
Last time I checked you were still around
But that’s alright
Couldn’t care less if I bumped into you, in the backseat making out to
The sounds of Death Cab For Cutie
‘Cos I’ve been there, done that (I was first)

A Million Different Weddings EP

The delay for my album release has been too long. Way too long. The songs I’ve recorded are like a year old now, and they haven’t seen the light of day. Everybody has been asking me for my EP. And I’ve been telling them, “it’s not done yet, it’s not done yet”. Well the truth is, it has been completed and been sitting on my desk for the past few months. But I really wasn’t happy with the vocals for But It Was Nice To Meet You and wanted to rerecord it. But because of commitments to work, and partying, I haven’t had the time to hit the studios.

Then just now in the shower I had a crazy idea. I seem to be having quite a lot of these nowadays, maybe I’ve been showering with cold water for too long (my heater blew up a few months back haha). I was thinking of recording some new demos for new songs I’ve written. Then I thought about my current EP and how nobody has listened to it yet. So I thought to myself, “why not release my EP now? Record an additional 6 songs, redo/improve the old ones and re-master/remix them for a full length release later this year or next?”

And so, that’s what I’m going to do. I’m releasing my EP, A Million Different Weddings, for absolutely no cost today. All I ask is for you to drop me a message or comment on this post if you’ve downloaded it. Let me know what you think about it! Spread it to all your friends, spam their walls! Pirate it! Burn it, put it in your car and let everyone who sits in your car to listen to it! Link everyone to this post! Let everyone know about my music! Come to my shows, and sing along! You finally have material to practice with!

In the coming week, I will release the album artwork/lyrics so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the music.
