about

The Sweet Deals Halifax, Nova Scotia

Formed on the back of a comet while the Earth was still in diapers, The Sweet Deals unite and unify once again the conflagrant sounds of Pop with it's elusive mistress, Jazz, creating a sound so unique that only in the native tongue of the tundra dwelling Inuit does a word exist that can describe it. ... more

Track Name: Radio Killed The Radio Star
I hear the same top 40 music
Played over and over again
After just a little bit of exposure, I'm impaired
I lose control of my body functions
Start singing along to the words
I don't know why but it happens, every time
Please turn it off, just make it stop
I'm trying to resist it
But the chorus is on its way
Specially formulated for my attention, now it's too late
I say please turn it off, just make it stop
Track Name: Serenity Now Etc.
Oh, serenity now, insanity later, hey
I feel good
Just like I should
Oh I tell myself everything's fine
Maybe I'll implode

Are we gonna have an event tonight?

Welcome to the event
You won't regret the fact you went
That light is shining in your eyes
If you drink, if you gamble
You'll find our services are ample
We've got everything you need
It's your addiction that we feed
Hope you're satisfied this evening
We wouldn't want to see you leaving
But we both know that's impossible
Satisfaction guaranteed tonight, every night
Track Name: Hubert Cumberdale's Big Day Out
found this needle in a haystack
That leads me down the tracks of this black tar road
I let this disease grab a hold of me
But it's a handicap that won't hold me back, for long
for long
I think I'll go down to the park and let the sun shine through my bones
I just need one last chance to dance, and then I'll close my eyes and go home
So I wander these streets bearing nothing but grief
I'm chasing down a ghost in this town tonight
As I lay my eyes on my new-found prize, I know I'll never make it through the night alive
I think I'll go down to the park and let the sun shine through my bones
I just need one last chance to dance, and then I'll close my eyes and go home
As I lay in my plot of space, this frozen face is all that speaks of me
I must go back to dust, and let the wind begin to make a whisper of me
I think I'll go down to the park and let the sun shine through my bones
I just need one last chance to dance, and then I'll close my eyes and go home
Track Name: Buyin' Tonite
You only like me when I'm buying
You don't care about me when I'm crying
That's why I'm buying tonight, you're gonna like me tonight
I guarantee it, one hundred percent
You only like me when I'm paying
Don't care about anything that I'm saying
That's why I'm buying tonight, you're gonna like me tonight

Don't reach into your pocket, reach into mine
Don't reach into your pocket, I'm buying tonight
Here's why

You only like me when I'm spending wads of cash
Then I'm broke, and you're gone in a flash
That's why I'm buying tonight, you're gonna like me tonight

Don't reach into your pocket, reach into mine
Don't reach into your pocket, I'm buying tonight
Here's why

Jingle all that change,
Jingle all the way

Track Name: Kick Me/Bob Marley
You never know what you may find
Around the corner, in the night
But I'm going back, going back to the lake
You can come and we can eat cake in the moonlight
Every time I look in your eyes
It takes me back to Junior High
Not a care in the world we share
Blasting Bob Marley in the summer air, c'mon


You never know what you may find
Around the corner, in the night
But I'm going back, going back to the lake
You can come and we can eat cake in the moonlight
Every time I look in your eyes
It takes me back to Junior High
Not a care in the world we share
Blasting Bob Marley in the summer air, c'mon
Track Name: The Shitty Blues
You know I've got some Shitty Blues
It's reached the point where I've got nothing to choose
The thralls of your perversional ways
Inciting and alighting my desire for pain
You know I've got some Shitty Blues
The clock is ticking, I just lit a fuse
Standing on the edge of abyss
Forever waiting for your poisonous kiss
My love for you is engulfed in flames
Much like the dreams that never became
Track Name: Good Luck In New York
I heard the news, just yesterday
It seems you're going away
Oh and should have seen this coming
Oh but I wish you nothing but the best
Good Luck In New York
I hope you have yourself a time
Good Luck In New York
When's your flight?
Such a shame, to see you leaving
You can bet all your money we'll be grieving
Good Luck In New York
I heard the news just yesterday
Seems you're going away
I heard the vendor call your name
He spotted you a mile away
Oh and I should've seen this coming
You've got all the makings of a star
Good Luck In New York
Track Name: Troll 2
Welcome to Nilbog, village of dreams,
deceptively quaint, not as it seems.
Vegetarian goblins, herbevoric trolls,
invading from the foliage, and grassy knolls.
Grassy knooooooooooooooooolls.

Chorus:
Troll 2, never met a troll like you.
They're eating her, they're gonna eat me.
Oh my gawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwd.

You can't piss on hospitality.
Goblins are cruel, turn you into a tree.
Into a treeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Chorus 2:
Troll 2, never met a troll quite like you.
They're eating her, they're gonna eat me.
Oh my gawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwd.
They're eating her, they're gonna eat me.
Oh my gawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwd.
Track Name: Autotune
I'm completely dependent on Autotune
To make club-banging music that will have the young ladies swoon all over me
To every tune
It's got that magical sound
And now that you've heard it, a billion times
You know you can't get it out of your mind
Now only songs with Autotune are good enough for you
This mandatory modification, of the human voice
Is sweeping the nation
Guaranteed to give a no-talent hack a number one track
It's got that magical sound
And now that you've heard it, a billion times
You know you can't get it out of your mind
Now only songs with Autotune are good enough for you
