Song Assignment No. 5: Pick a newspaper article at random, write a song

This week we all chose an article at random and wrote a song based on that. I landed on what seemed like the most depressing and colourless story in the whole paper, but which actually turned out to hold some poetic gems. I used these without hesitation and combined them with a simple bassline to produce…quite a depressing song actually, but what else did I expect? As always, you can listen and cast your vote here:
