about

"One of those songs that are born “classic", which irreversibly snatches us through their first hearing, is one of the greatest releases of the year!" - Roadie Music

"‘Too Many Songs‘ itself is beautiful, not only for the catchy melody but also for his always gorgeous vocals, the now almost prerequisite guitar solo I love in his songs so much, and his ability to write about a complex and frustrating subject in a way that makes you actually care." - Leo Sigh Magazine

"Musically, the piece unfolds with melancholic piano, stunning vocal lines and haunting string arrangements...this track feels like an instant classic." - RGM

"The lyrics of Parkinson are as complicated (in a beautiful way) and as vibrant like the paintings of Abstract artist Jackson Pollock. He is different because whenever you listen to his lyrics you quickly realise that he is not happy with putting out music just for the sake of putting out music." - Allen Richards (Toxic Music Blog)

"Exquisite and powerful indie poprock, Too Many Songs is strong, has lyrics that hit us like a bullet, and James' voice is impressive, the chorus is so impactful it reminds us of 80s classics, a romantic ballad to take to everywhere on our headphones, a song that stands out among so many releases." - Indieoclock

"Parkinson’s music is increasingly attaining a near-anthemic status among generations." - Sinusoidal Music

lyrics

Too Many Songs Written by James Parkinson

We've heard, those notes too many times
The blood the sweat, we’re all so tired

There are, too many songs for you
You don’t, you don’t have the time in you
I hear the human race is done
But you still, you still, you wanna carry on
There are too many songs, to take all in

They’re saying no, so why do we care?
So you live in your room, with nothing to share

There are too many songs for you
It’s so sad, the time isn’t right for you
I hear the cold sighs of everyone
But you still, you still, you wanna carry on

Solo

There are, too many songs for you
You don’t, you don’t have the time in you
I hear the human race is done
But you still, you still, you wanna carry on
There are too many songs for you
It’s so sad, the time isn’t right for you
There are too many songs, to take all in
