Everything Is Awesome (Mandatory Productivity Version)

by Unwoman

subscriber exclusive


This was a special request from Tom Steiger from my kickstarter in 2021. He paid me big $$$ to pick a song I wouldn’t be allowed to veto, lest I not feel good about charging my Patreon backers for it. Well, his request bounced around my head for months before inspiration hit, but it hit hard. He’d requested “Everything Is Awesome” (from the Lego Movie) but in minor. I did such an AWESOME job with it that I did charge my Patreon backers for it, and offered Tom another chance to pick a song that I think you’ll all hate for no extra charge. We're all constantly borrowing from tomorrow, aren't we?

This is the Garfunkel & Oates lyrics, with rhythm parts distantly inspired by “Reptile” by Nine Inch Nails. My goal was to depict a large structure of organic mechanisms and force. Coerced socialization, compelled productivity, optimistic self-talk that rings hollow.

This song will appear again on a public release this Friday.
