Blackout Romeo. Has two meanings. One, a guy that has no luck with the ladies until he is blackout drunk. Two, a down on his luck hero who makes an epic comeback.


Wanna die young
Just as late as I can
I want to get messed up
and go to Japan
I got the sizzle
but not the spice
Oh you got my eye girl
You got my vice

Whoa uh oh
He’s got no shot
but it’s one shot two shot
He becomes a hotshot Romeo
Blackout Blackout

I got the groove
but not the beat
I got the trick
but not the trick
I got a room
but it ain’t no sweet
when I get messed up baby
I feel so far from incomplete

Romeo Blackout
One shot two shot

I like a lot of what you do in this song. Having listened through a couple of yours, it sounds like you rely on the chorus/refrain to fill time, usually repeating it at least twice. *That* I don't enjoy as much. Single-repeats on the refrain might help there. Alternatively, introducing changes to the refrain as you progress through the song (to tell a different or more complete story?) Even just changing which words you emphasize could help a lot to keep your refrains from getting stale. I noticed you do that at 2:40, and it helped, but still a bit too much of the same refrain for my tastes. Maybe a 3rd stanza to take up the space the refrains take up.

Really liked the use of the saxophone solo to transition to different paces. I'd even suggest going a bit further there with larger shifts (in pace, intensity, etc).

It's easy to be a critic, though, and I can't exactly promise that these are even good ideas. Have a good day!

Haven't seen you guys in a while. Good work!

SpinWires responds:

Thanks! its been quite awhile since a release (although we've been playing live consistently). Will likely upload the rest of our new EP over the next month
