Getting in the groove for Blunt Lancet. D Blog Week, Day 5

Blunt Lancet is the one of those music groups that defies the ages.

They are loved and followed by generations of Type 1 groupies and their families. I don't want you to faint from excitement, but I've heard through the grapevine that a comeback tour is in the works.

For those of you who have been blind to the stylings of said Blunt Lancet, check out this post by Kim where you can find out more "Behind the Music" of this talented group of people.

I have been fantasizing of a We Are The World-esque comeback single. This group of musicians are so inspiring, I feel like they can pull off awesomeness such as this with amazing magnitude. I mean who needs Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan and Cyndi Lauper, when you have Kelly "RawSugar", Kim "Pancreas," and Simon "Syringe?"

In hopes of getting things jump started, I have written a song...and have even done a crude demo of it.

Let me be CRYSTAL CLEAR.

I. CAN. NOT. SING.

I. DO. NOT. PRETEND. TO. BE. ABLE. TO. SING.

I. DO. NOT. SECRETLY. THINK. I. CAN. SING.

I. AM. UNDER. NO. CIRCUMSTANCES. BEING. HUMBLE. RIGHT. NOW.

YOUR. EARS. MIGHT. BLEED.

I. AM. SO. SO. SORRY. IF. THEY. DO.

I am simply a lowly parent blogger hoping that someone that CAN sing...(Blunt Lancet,) will maybe get inspired and run with it!

Nah...I don't think there will be copyright issues...

right?


Man, that last note was the worst. My condolences to your eardrums.

(This post was my day 5 submission for Diabetes Blog Week. I chose to use the wild card where we take a Diabetes Myth and let it fly!)

  1. Meri, you sound terrific!!!! I love your song and I love your singing. I too posted Blunt Lancet lyrics today, but I sing terribly so I just typed them out. I think just the fact that I pondered singing on a vlog was enough to make Blogger crash. :)

    Awesome job, my friend!! Hugs to you!
