Lucy Dacus I Don’t Wanna Be Funny Anymore

Lucy DacusI don’t wanna be funny anymore.
Yeah, I’ll be the gossip, hear it through the grape vine.
Pass it on, she’s done with the old times.
That funny girl doesn’t wanna smile for a while.

Inevitably there will be times when everyone contemplates and sets in motion freeing themselves from expectations. Some notions are perpetual for most of us but living and learning and hoping to be perceived in your self-prescribed image is a sense of control we all hope for and to be honest rarely achieve. Hence the ongoing struggle of individuality vs. conformity.

Hear for yourself such a life’s decision in Richmond, VA’s Lucy Dacus’ new single “I Don’t Wanna Be Funny Anymore” from her forthcoming debut “No Burden” (26 Feb via Egghunt Records). The gnawing poetry in this track is heightened by unforgettable sincerity in its well laid out lackadaisical is palpable realism delivery by the storyteller. I understand the writer feels this situation as do I and so should you. We’ve all been there.
