Bobby Baritone – “Shaving Private Ryan”

You know a track is worth a listen when its title is a pun and Bobby Baritone’s “Shaving Private Ryan” is no exception. Angsty lyrics are offset by a chilled out guitar propelled progression, complete with a strong drive toward the track’s finale. Captivating and emotive vocals guide you through a ballad you’ll want to sing along with. Bobby Baritone’s distinct “scum rock” genre is the ’90s alternative rock reboot we all deserve.

Bobby Baritone’s full album, Scum Rock, is set to release on April 27th.

Listen if you like: Weezer, Pavement

Shaving Private Ryan

By Bobby Baritone

I cut my hair,
I shaved my chin,
Looked in the mirror
I’m happy with my skin
For the first time in a while.

I strut my stuff,
Yeah I was bold,
A heart on a sleeve,
Could not grow cold,
Until you froze it my ice queen

And I’m not trying to be a mess,
I tend to obsess,
And I’m so clingy, yes, I know
If you wanna let me go,
And I just can’t take any more lies
You’re saving nothing but my time,
My heart was dumb, my friends were right,
At least my hair looks good tonight…

ooooooooooooohh

I lie in bed.
It’s four PM.
Pathetic mess,
Self-condemned.
A petty fool who never learns.
(He just never learns.)

I called my Mom,
Yeah I was low.
She says, “It takes time,
Just take it slow,
A lifetime of waiting lies ahead.”
(Tick tock tick tock tick)

And now I’m trying to get mad,
You gave me nothing to work with,
And everything you said was probably right,
How I longed to hold you tight.
A war I’m only fit to lose,
Use some nice words other people chose,
And now I feel dead inside,
Using lies to cover lies.

And I’m not trying to be a mess,
I tend to obsess,
And I’m so clingy, yes, I know
If you wanna let me go,
And I just can’t take any more lies
You’re saving nothing but my time,
My heart was dumb, my friends were right,
At least my hair looks good to-

Bah Buh Bah Buh Baaaaah
Bah Buh Bah Buh Baaaaah
Bah Buh Bah Buh Baaaaah
Bah Buh Bah Buh Baaaaah
