AVAILABLE TUESDAY, MAY 3 :: WHEREVER YOU BUY YOUR MUSIC ONLINE.

Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Randy Quaid may be best known as an acclaimed and respected actor but music has always had a place in Randy's life.

He began performing as a singer-songwriter before his acting career took off, he and wife, creative partner Evi started playing and writing music together as a way to express their love and frustration. Finding relief in telling the truth through song, Randy and Evi kept putting pen to paper, often writing down simple ideas and verses that would later become finished compositions. 
 
Mixed and mastered by award winning and producer/engineer, Mike Rogerson (Sheryl Crowe, Shelby Lynne & Green Day) the new 45 features the infamous "Star Whackers", a hard-hitting roots-rock styled number featuring smart and clever lyrics directed at those who feed the public's appetite for propaganda and drive the cult of personality and the beautifully penned Americana-Johnny Cash influenced lovers-lament "Will We Be Together Then", an open and honest love song written by Evi and Randy while traveling through troubling times.

Quaid stands alongside such peers as Bill Bob Thornton, Kevin Costner, Dan Aykroyd and Russell Crowe.  As creative people it is completely reasonable to assume that actors are moved by music as much as anyone else, but unfortunately, there's usually suspicion following those actors who become singer-songwriters. Happily Quaid has done himself and his band proud, quickly proving all naysayers wrong.

Track Name: Star Whackers

Arrest your ass on E and TMZ,
Just for being a celebrity.
Smear your name so they can sell their ads,
Make up lots of lies to drive you mad.

Create a public scandal in your name,
Tell the whole world that you’re to blame,
Spin you like a load of clothes,
To everyone, your life fully exposed.

Knock off your kids and all your heirs,
So they can spend your money like it’s theirs.
When it’s all gone and there’s no more,
You’ll wonder what the hell it was all for.

(Chorus)
I’m talkin’ about Whackers, Whackers
Those cheesy Star Whackers, Whackers,
To hell with fact checkers, Whackers,
Those sleazy Star Whackers.

If they have the need for you to die,
That will be a cinch, easy as pie.
There are lots of ways for them to kill,
Tainted drug prescriptions can be filled.

Or maybe squeeze your balls with nylon rope,
Hang you in the closet like an overcoat.
Take you and your lover for a ride,
So they can stage a murder/suicide.

(Chorus)
I’m talkin’ about Whackers, Whackers
Those cheesy Star Whackers, Whackers,
Career hijackers, Whackers,
Those sleazy Star Whackers.

When you feel your heart start to explode,
You’ll be the number one YouTube download.
With you more famous when you die,
They’ll have more ways to suck you dry.

Put your name and face on all the mags,
Lots of pictures of your body bag.
When you’re good and dead and have no say,
They’ll sell your vital organs on Ebay.

(Chorus)
I’m talkin’ about Whackers, Whackers
Those cheesy Star Whackers, Whackers,
Those dirty toe taggers, Whackers,
Those sleazy Star Whackers.

(Instrumental)

Those sleazy Star Whackers.
Track Name: Will We Be Together Then
Written by: Evi Quaid, Randy Quaid | © 2011, Evi Quaid, Randy Quaid. All Rights Reserved.

Where will we be, darlin’
When the well’s run dry?
When the land’s played out and dusty,
And the crops wither and die.

Will we still cling to each other,
Deep in love through thick and thin,
Will we be together, darlin’,
Will we be together then?

Where will we be, darlin’
When the Piper’s played his tune?
When there’s nothing left to give him,
And the fiddler wants his too?

When the banker comes a callin’,
Cause we’re overdue again?
Will we be together, darlin’,
Will we be together then?

(Chorus 2 verses)
When times are getting tougher,
When the light of hope grows dim.
And the road keeps getting rougher,
As darkness closes in.

If the sun comes up tomorrow,
If the world takes one more spin,
Will put away our sorrow,
And fall in love again?

Where will we be darlin’,
Can we come back from the dead?
Two ghosts without a home,
Haunting dreams of what we had.

If we make it through the fire,
If the well fills up again,
We will be together, darlin’,
Will we be together then?

(Chorus 2 verses)
When times are getting tougher,
When the light of hope grows dim.
And the road keeps getting rougher,
As darkness closes in,

If the sun comes up tomorrow,
If the world makes one more spin,
We will put away our sorrow,
And fall in love again.
Yes, we’ll put away our sorrow,
And fall in love again.
