about

“I’m in love with writing and recording at the same time. I just step up to the mic and keep singing until the song is done, then I record immediately.

Killjoy is a snarky little number. The song brings punchy guitars and biting pop lyrics that dance over a relentless 808 beat. And all of it was recorded entirely to 8-track tape with no computers and no editing. I’ve grown to hate working with computers, so this was a nice change.

The song came together so fast too! In one single night I had the beat, the bass line, guitar tracks and the vocals written and recorded. This entire record came together in just a few months start to finish and this was the final song I layed down.

Everyone has that special person in their life that is out to destroy all fun. This song is dedicated to them. If you don’t know a person like that, then it’s probably you ;)”

— Ty Richards

lyrics

Why you gotta go wreck everything
Who dropped dead and made you the queen
I see you freak out at every joke
Take your Xanax honey and leave me alone

You are the killjoy
You are the killjoy
Yes you are

You got your fire and brimstone smoking gun
Like the holiest witch-hunt Puritan
And you tell me what to say, tell me what to be
Honey look into the mirror tell me what you see

You are the killjoy
K-k-k-killjoy
Yes you are

You are the killjoy
K-k-k-killjoy
Yes you are

What you fear is in your mirror
What you hate is what you are

You are the killjoy
K-k-k-killjoy
Yes you are

You are the killjoy
K-k-k-killjoy
Darling, yes you are

You are the killjoy
K-k-k-killjoy
Yes you are

You are the killjoy
K-k-k-killjoy
Honey, yes you are

You are the killjoy
