Rob Balder Crazy Me 
Here's an introspective little number for those who like their FuMP songs like they like their coffee: short and weird. [Which if you're ordering at Starbucks is a "piccolo cafe groucho."]

This is the first Rob Balder FuMP song in almost exactly two years. Don't call it a comeback!

No, seriously, don't. There are at least five good reasons not to call it a comeback. But enjoy the song anyway, if you please.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Welcome back, sir! Funny, short and, yes, weird. Good stuff! (and it's about damn time!)

It'a about time!!! I was in need of a Balder fix!

Damn. Brilliant. Starts off odd and ends up being a heart-tugging mini-treatise on how the world (life?) grinds down our specialness. I'm a sucker for this stuff - I've tried writing songs about this but they always come out sounding pathetic or whiny. Nicely done! PS Folks: If you like this topic go find and watch the 1965 movie "A Thousand Clowns".

Nice groove. I like it. I'd love to hear a mix that's a bit heavier on the vocals. The instrumentals are a little overpowering and make it hard to understand some of the lyrics.

More Balder brilliance!! I hope we won't have to wait another 2 years for the next one. Excellent non comeback!!

Thanks, guys. @LadyO I thinned out the vocals because I was coming down with a cold when I was up against the recording deadline, and could not get a sound I was happy with. Putting a stylized treble-only filter was the best result I could get with it. I may re-record, because when I was writing it earlier in the week my voice sounded a hell of a lot better. Certainly less stuffed up and nasally. :(

I really enjoyed it, and hope that the throat is getting better.

I love the lyrics. Write more like this, please. Maybe with juuuuust a little more sex.

@seamonkey Would it help if I told you I got to third base with the swan?

Wow, this turned out great.

Stellar, Rob. This song should go on rotation at all the major radio stations in the country; it's very catchy, and the title speaks to all of us.
