Track Review: Everyone’s Problem, No One’s Problem by Chalk

Wed, 06/10/2015 - 09:27

Another great track review from Te Hao Boon. This time it is for Chalk – Everybody’s Problem, No One’s Problem  Is This Thing On Podcast PURPLE

Ah… Good ol’ capitalism. Something so ingrained in everyone’s psyche. In 2005, an economist/psychologist duo from Yale managed to teach seven capuchin monkeys how to use money. The reason they choose capuchin monkeys is simple: They are selfish creatures. They would rather eat more than they can, puke, and eat the remaining food than give it to another monkey that might be starving.

What do you guys think the monkeys would use the money for? Food, shelter, friendship? Nope, they just use the money for sex. And why would the female monkey need money anyway, you might ask? Well, to buy themselves some grapes, of course!

With materialism taking centrestage in urban society, there are now programs created to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Programs that force you to drop everything you have: Your work, your smartphone, your laptop, even your car and just enjoy nature for a week or two (for the low price of $199.95!).

How many people can actually drop all that we have a go at a non-materialistic life? I know I can’t, I wouldn’t be able here sitting on my bum typing this review on my desktop otherwise. I am a “gutless shit” as mentioned in the song.

Brighton singer-songwriter Chalk‘s Everyone’s Problem, No One’s Problem sounds like a lovechild of Modest Mouse and The Paper Chase: Lo-fi grungy sounds with a tinge of hollowness throughout the song. The protagonist calls himself a “man of money” and he is nothing else really. He doesn’t have any hopes and dreams of his own; he just buys them from others with the money he has.

The protagonist knows he is working under the system but he is not questioning if the system could be changed since he was brought up in it. In fact, he has even started to think intangible things like dreams and hopes can be bought with paper money.

Lets all not be so materialistic for once. After all, everyone is going 6 feet under at the end of the day. Money only means so much.
