How do you know if you have a good song title and the song has good lyrics? Well isn’t that the fifty five thousand dollar question?
Working on this new album in which all the songs are finish (with names I must say) I have not yet come up with a name for the album. So let me go into how I name songs as I write them. Believe it or not, all of the songs I write I first throw a random name on my DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) as a placeholder, a thought, an object just a random name. Sometimes that random name sticks and it becomes the name and the muse for the lyric’s yet to be written. Sometimes I have the lyric’s and one line or word in the lyric’s becomes the songs name and then sometimes it’s just a feel of the song and that becomes the name.
The name for the album on the other hand is a greater bigger picture. It has to encompass the whole album and what it stands for or the vibe and feel of what it needs to convey. Take the first album I put out a few years back, “TEST DRIVE RAW”, as it was my first solo album and published music in a long while, I felt it was a test drive to see where I was at musically and the raw feel of the album fit the way the music was on the album. Raw and basically uncut with minimal production quality, thus Test Drive Raw.
The second album, “Eclectic Collaborations” was a collection of music collaborated with other musicians. So I wanted to convey that it didn’t have a common theme and each song had a different feel.
The third album was more about experiences in my life thus the album name, “This is My Life” Welcome to it. Many musicians have different ways to come up with names of songs and titles, lyric’s come from many different sources as do names and titles.
To the end of it all within the next few months you will find out what the name of the new album will be named!
Look for it and hear it, a new Aldo Buzzi single release.
The story of this song, as you listen to the lyric’s is about a selfish girl getting what she wants with no regard for the other person. She’s gonna do what she wants any time and any way. It’s a true rock and roll song with straight forward drums, bass guitar and guitar, nothing more. Strong vocals with some saucy lyric’s. Tied all together in the mid section by a hot guitar lead, Rock N’ Roll Baby!!! Just what the summer needs for a summer fling, She’s such a Bitch, let me lay it on the line.

With its 2 bar cowbell intro ‘Sex & Trainwrecks’ might have gone in a different direction but, true to form, it quickly becomes familiar Aldo Buzzi fare. The tune takes a melancholy theme and punctuates it rhythmically with a post-punk architecture and a Caribbean undertone. As regards the lyrics the listener asks who are the victims? The rule of ‘poetic license’ is applied heavily and as always in Aldo’s material there may not be any ‘straight line’ lyrical commentary – whereas one might associate the sound of a train wreck with a cacophony of screeching, crushing and twisting metal this track maintains a steady rhythmic 4/4 beat -train wrecks are probably not agreeable to rhythmic consonance.
The intertwining instrumental layering is familiar and against the cadence of the lyrics we are met with an Edgar Allen Poe-esque tapestry of the dead possibly dreaming and the question answers itself by asking if the dead still dream. It’s an interesting set-up of superpositions as our subjects appear (at least in the words) to be both dead and alive. Thus a moderately tempered tune has more depth than the main thematic material implies. This listener found it a little trancy and ‘retro’ – I hear ‘post punker’ ghosts responding and the outro of this tune is in lock-step with the very movement that gave it life. – Joezworld June 2019
Sex an Trainwrecks
When you’re in the coffin of life. What do you dream when you’re feet under?
A straightforward tune that might be
its own anthem asserting: “this is your moment”
and fortifying its message with a strong double-
tracked main vocal. There appears to be some
beat anomalies though one never knows if these
are intentionally placed or artifacts from a rebellious
effect plug or two.
The instrumental break is sparse and somewhat disembodied
and the lyrics perhaps a bit redundant. The sound is more
’neo-garage’ then it is ‘recording studio’ polished but allowances
should always be made as this is part of the ‘appeal’ of Buzzi’s
One wonders if the author was up against a deadline (self-imposed or otherwise)to complete it – There’s ‘more to this life’ than we are given here both thematically and stylistically. Perhaps the entertainment adage to ‘always leave the audience wanting more’ has been employed here with skilled hands (and ears) and for those die-hard fans of Buzzi’s music out there ‘This Is My Life’ might be the sonnet they’ve been waiting for. – JoeZworld
