Kent’s Songs A-Z – Faithlessness

This week’s song is Faithlessness. Here’s the MP3:

This is the first song I co-wrote with my friend Toby Darling. Years ago during the dawn of the “world wide web” I used to read a journal (the nineties version of a blog) by a girl named Faith. Her journal was called Faithlessness. I started thinking about that term (in the relational, not the theological sense) and this song was the result. I love the music Toby did- you can really hear the British influence. It has an English Beat sort of vibe.

All I can remember about writing the story is that the image of the guy seeing his wife’s farewell note under a beer bottle and drinking the beer while he reads it was the first thing that I came up with. A long time ago (mid-eighties), an ex-girlfriend of mine moved out of our apartment one day while I was at work, taking all of her stuff and much of my stuff with her. When I got home there was a new bottle of Jack Daniels sitting on the floor. I remember sitting on the floor and sipping that whiskey while trying to decide if I was happy or sad that she was gone. That’s where the idea came from.
