TunesDay!!: Allday x C1 – So Good

A little Aussie Hip Hop today y’all!!

I totally forgot about this song until last week when we were heading up the coast.

This song reminds me of cruising down the highway, sun shining, wind in your hair, everyone smiling and having an awesome time. The groove in this is killer and I just love it. Not only the groove, but the lyrics are quite meaningful – outlining some issues that are often overlooked.

Allday (Tom Gaynor) was discovered on Triple-J’s Unearthed website. This particular song made it to #91 in the 2012 Hottest 100. Since, he has been signed by Illy’s (another Aussie Hip Hop Artist) label and pumped out a few other songs with an album to be released soon.


So Good – Allday x C1

All the shit that you been through
I don’t ever want to see you down
And I got to say me too
Cause I’ve been where you are right now
It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through
I don’t ever want to see you down
And I got to say me too
Cause I been where you are right now

[Verse 1]
I was a bright child, wide eyed
My mind was open
Highly motivated to succeed, quite devoted
But eventually I noticed every time I tried to focus
That my mind was kinda bogus so we sought a diagnosis
I had hypersensitivity, ADD, I’m fidgety
Basically they want to medicate me ’til it fixes me
Man, I don’t really think this is the thing for me
I know I’m kind of shitty
But I’m just trying to live in peace

You wanna make me to a zombie cause you’re lazy
And it’s easier on you to say sorry, you’re crazy man
And if you don’t take this here, you’re gonna fail exams
Wait a year, your fate is that of a vagrant tramp

But this ain’t making sense, I gotta take a stand
They say I couldn’t live without it well I say I can
Cause I never took those poison pills
And I failed school bad but my choice was still

[Hook x2]
Good, I feel good
Knock on wood
Cause I wanna feel this way tomorrow
Mono, mono, mono, mono

[Verse 2]
We making bread like Helga’s while the rest die helpless
So excuse me for pursuing dreams, guess I’m selfish
Rocking hand-me-down clothes but I’m the eldest
So how the hell does that work out, mum can you tell us
And I know I roll around with some red-eyed fellas
We all wanna be king like the dead guy in Memphis,
I could be living stable but I’d rather live it fast
Cause I grew up looking shitty all the other kids would laugh,
Now I heard somebody say that I look upper-middle class
Well that’s my fucking aim, I’ll tell the gutter kiss my arse
And I don’t want to spit these bars but I don’t have shit else
So when I’m rapping you can tell that it’s my actual self
And so I brag about a girl, whatever tactic helps
To make me feel little better about the hand I’m dealt
And damn, I’m so ashamed but at the same time
I know it’s all good, I’m having a great time
It’s all good
