Elliott Smith: "Suicide Machine"


photo (c) Autumn de Wilde

I have removed the contents of this post out of respect for Elliott’s family. It turns out the original person who found this song over at Sweet Addy was contacted and notified that the leak of this song had upset Elliott’s father, and that they didn’t want the song out there. He immediately removed the link, and is asking that the song spread no further, if possible.

As excited as Elliott fans are to have a “new” song, it doesn’t at all seem worth causing any discomfort or anger to his family and friends. So, if you happen to have a copy of the song, for the sake of his loved ones, please keep it to yourself.

(It should be noted, though, that despite the provocative title, the song was in no way a suicide note or endorsing/promoting suicide in any way. If anything, it was poking fun at the false public perception that Elliott was eternally sad and depressed, an upbeat screw-you song in the vein of “Everybody Cares, Everybody Understands”.) {via}

    more data about that social media network and the fans you have on it, then work on growing the page.
    You can use these social network to engage with prospective customers and convince them to buy your products.
    There are many communication ways which make life
