Song #242 of 9999 - Breaking the Ice by Frankie Big Face

Breaking the Ice is not a terribly interesting song. I was quite happy when I came up with the hook but I recognize now that it's kind of overused throughout the song and that the structure in general could have been tightened up. I think I could have shortened the chorus here and there or perhaps tried to come up with some alternate lyrics. The subject matter is pretty near and dear to my heart as I am terrible at starting conversations with strangers. I think the second verse is especially good at illustrating that concept. For this song, I had to employ a "significant use of shouting," which was kind of fun as I was given the opportunity to try on my best screamo hat. Otherwise, a pretty inconsequential song but a solid start to Nur Ein 7.
