Zoe Newton – No Fun
This song begins by looking at some problems from a philosophical perspective. Zoe is trying to find a positive outlook in all the things she mentions. The sombre melody throughout this song helps to re-inforce that it is very much a reflective song. Zoe’s emotions come through really well. She explains how it is possible to find positives in each situation but the reality is that despite these statements; the irony is she cannot find any positives in her situation. This has clearly been written at a darker time in Zoe’s life. She questions when she will start to feel better, when will she reach that time when she will start to feel positive. The acoustic arrangement is ideal for this song and Zoe has beautifully reflective tones in her vocals.
