Up On The Hill

from 20 Minute Loop by 20 Minute Loop



I love Joe Ostrowski's guitar part that opens this dead simple song. I believe this is the only song we have that doesn't have a change, in terms of chord arrangements. Just back and forth, back and forth. But Joe's part is deceptively simple, thoughtful, evocative, and unexpected. One of my favorite things he's done. This, along with "Cora May," is one of the early collaborative efforts of 20ML, musically speaking. Everyone pitched in, and I still like this tune. 20ML powers activate! Form of diseased lemur! Shape of decorative ice swan!


You're on your own now
You wanna fight about it?
You're next to nothing now
It's all they write about

And forgive, forget
Which one you askin'
Forgive, forget
Which one you askin' for?

Up on the hill
You wanna fight about it?
You wanna watch me now?
