Sudden Death Getting Old Sucks 
Some time ago I bent over to tie my shoe and somehow I hurt my back in the process. Rather than take my mother's advice and tell people I hurt myself doing a triple back flip on some really tough ski slope somewhere I decided to turn this little episode into a song. A big thank you to Thom for the music. I owe you big time for this one. And if you're going to be by the Jersey Shore next Saturday I'm performing at the Internet Cafe in Red Bank, NJ. http://www.suddendeath.org for details.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Back in my day, we made sure to mention who did the voices of the old men in our songs in the song descriptions, you little whippersnapper! :P Back in my day, Sudden Death did songs on cassette players about being bored and rubber chickens. They didn't do the best damn rap dementia ever consistently month after month, like they do today at the FuMP! MAAAATLOOOOCK!!!

No, it cannot be!! Being able to recall watching the Snorks and MacGyver does not makes us old- say it isn't so!! What was this comment for again? Oh yes, the next awesome hit by Sudden Death- it rocks and then some!! Now if I could only recall where I put my mp-whatsit thingy.....

sigh. I remember the Snorks, watched MacGuyver, and used to play video games when they were a quarter. Thank you for making this old man laugh, you whippersnapper.

I haven't even LISTENED to this yet and I know it's going to be my new theme song. -- Yep, I was right. :)

Ok. There is really nothing left to say. But you know I'm gonna anyway!
Tom Sudden Devo FIDIM Death Spice Rockwell, LLC is hands down brilliant. Tom, from concept to performance to production to product, you always know you're getting quality.
CONSISTENTLY funny, consistently entertaining and consistently well produced = THE HOTTEST DEMENTIA ARTIST ON THE FUMP!!! Hell, wanna go planetary with that statement? Try and challenge! A-friggin' + on this song! (not to go all eBay on ya...)
Luke, your old man can shake his fist at me anytime! (ooh, don't like the way that came out) Thom, I LOVED that swing/bebop track! Brilliant all around!!!

And I just celebrated a birthday this month. How appropriate is this song? LOL

Once again, you created a great song that expresses my opinions.

Another great SD track. I don't know why, but "... Yoda was a puppet" had me in stitches. Games for a quarter indeed.

Finally signed up. I guess this is what I'll have to look forward to in a few years. Somehow I try to envision the future, and then envision myself saying things like "Back in my day, there actually existed buildings that didn't say 'Starbucks' on them!" :p

Yeah, pretty much what yoyogod said.

I sign up to support this site and this is the thanks I get. Tom mocks my pain. I listened to this song going "Yep, that's me, yep, that's me, what'd he say?" Giggling all the way, of course. Next time I should remember to listen at home instead of work. My office mate can't decide whether I have senile dementia or I'm just plain nuts.

Great song. What was the name of it again? ;-)

Yea, getting old does indeed suck. Thanks for the song.

Awesome song Tom. Exactly when did being 30-something cause us (myself included) to be dirty old men? And I agree with ecocd, I still crack up at the back in my day Yoda was a puppet line LOL

Back in my day (late Eighties-Early Nineties) there was no Fump and I had nothing to live for! Great work, you guys. I hope Sudden Death tunes accumulate here like candles each year on a cake.
