Song Description

TV Characters and Movie Roles can illustrate the perfect people or perfect life. Can we only hope to live up to it???

Story Behind the Song

After a taco lunch on 4th and South Street (Philly), While getting ready to put on the helmet and ride off to other things. I over heard a conversation on the sidewalk about how TV is so this was a quicky demo right at the next moment.

I love that flute!!!! It absolutely made the song. And the acoustic steely sounding guitar went very well with it. It almost sounded like an electric guitar that was not plugged in. The edgy singing style and lyrics gave the punk rock flavor to the song. I have never heard flute used in punk before but it sure was great!! It sounded like a real flute and not a synthesized one. I could hear the blow variances in the instrument which you don't get with the fake stuff. Very rare even to hear flute in rock (Jethro Tull, Moody Blues) but I have NEVER heard it in punk rock-brilliant!

Really cool song!! Very interesting use of the melodic flute with the punkish sentiment!! Works very well!! Love the arrangement and the whole vibe of the song! Great flute player!!

TV is Perfect (1:57)

Everybody's talking bout nothing at all
Talking bout something that they did or saw
Talking bout Somewhere that they been
Talking bout someone they done

TV is so perfect
People on the tube are perfect too
Aren't you?

Everybody's always working at a
Working at a shitty job
Working for someone that don't even care
Telling them pull up a chair
Life is never always fair
People are always broke, what a joke

People on the tube are so perfect
TV is perfect too...Aren't you?

TV is my God

TV is so perfect
People on the tube are perfect too
Aren't you?
Tv's so perfect...
Why aren't you?
