Alex Cameron, "The Comeback"

The “I lost my show” song you didn’t know you needed.

Here’s another one from Alex Cameron’s forthcoming Jumping The Shark, which I have previously praised in this spot. The album is the best collection of character songs I have heard in… gosh, I can’t even think that far back, who even writes character songs anymore? In any event, this is my absolute favorite track from the record, and while the subject matter seems an absurd thing to write a song about at first, the more you listen to it the more incredible it becomes. (It does get a little dark at the end but, without hopefully spoiling life for you, all things do.) Have a listen and enjoy.
