Ain’t No Good To Me

I’m starting of 2015 with a song I wrote in January of 2013 but never recorded. It’s a bit of a tribute to Oscar Wilde, and unrequited love. Or is it lust? It’s so hard to tell sometimes.

Oscar Wilde said it best
Get your love off your chest
Donovan said it too
Wear your love all over you

It ain’t no good to me, oh yeah
It ain’t no good to me, oh no
It ain’t no good to me, oh yeah

Elegant as a man
Living in a garbage can
There’s no hope without shame
For the love that dare not speak its name

It ain’t no good to me, oh yeah
It ain’t no good to me, oh no
It ain’t no good to me, oh yeah

Julia, Stephanie,
Maria, Emily
Might as well pay someone
Or just take it with a gun

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
