“99 Percent” By Justin Leeper

Check out this video for the song “99 Percent” by longtime RPad.tv¬†friend Justin Leeper, author of the book Still Man Fights. He wrote it in support of the “Occupy” movement sweeping the nation. After you give it a listen, please leave him some feedback on the song in the comments section.

Also, let’s have some fun with it too! I challenge you to rewrite Justin’s lyrics for thoughtful or mirthful purposes. For example, my favorite verse is around the 0:58 mark:

“Corporations,
Ruining the nation,
The greed that they spawn,
Is Armageddon.”

My version goes like this:

“Corporations,
Spicy Cajuns,
Stone Cold Steve Austin,
Cheap Lisa Munn.”

Now it’s your turn! Channel your inner Lennon/McCartney and play with the lyrics.

    1. Lol.

      If that's the case, you should hit the Donate button more often and then write it off of your way too high taxes.

  1. I have to step aside on this.

    I'm a musician of like 25 years from the East Coast. I can break it down by the syllable, but I don't want to.

    I will say I admire the inspiration and the writing is done well. The production quality…. is a little difficult for me to listen through. The vocals are too separated from the rest of the mix. Even for a demo.

    Yes, I'm a total snob when it comes to this. I completely apologize, it really is a me problem.

      1. Yeah… but the "me problem" is that I can't just smile and nod. When asked my opinion about a song, I've had to do this with musicians for so long that years ago I realized I was doing an artist a disservice by holding back negative opinions for the sake of boosting confidence.

        I have early Guns 'N Roses demos I can't bare to listen to. And they turned out to be Guns 'N Roses. I can hear and appreciate the music in those old Velvet Underground records, but I can't have them in my regular rotation or they'll drive me nuts.

        Regardless, my point is… you should produce him, Ray.

    1. Fair enough. I did this with a cheap mic and free-ish software. Wasn't doing it for production values, obviously; just wanted to express my sentiments.
      Not to disregard your analysis obviously. Just wanted you to know where I was coming from.
