Strangely Alright ~ Little Billy Died (Single release)


“How You Make Others Feel About Themselves Says A Lot About You”.
– Unknown

Little Billy Died is the new single from Strangely Alright and was written and produced by Regan Lane and Sean Van Dommelen. It’s a hauntingly simple song with some beautiful harmonies and a story about a boy who was bullied and tormented because he was different. Little Billy Died is available at iTunes and Amazon along with SA’s previous music.

SA front man Regan Lane explains: “Little Billy Died” is taken from a true story that happened when I was in high school. And with my daughter in elementary school and the many examples of cyber bulling happening today it seems like the perfect time to revisit the feelings and story as I saw it. Today it’s now clear to see that what we all put into the universe can affect folks depending on the positive or negative bent of our words and actions and where people are at in their own lives… And because we believe that Love is more powerful than hate, the underlying thought is just be kind because the ripple effect is real.

After the release of Little Billy Died, the band will be finishing up their EP Stuff for release in the September, on a special limited-edition cassette, with the help of Ombrello Records.

Strangely Alright will be performing with Limberlost at Louie G’s for an All-Ages show on June 22nd.

Little Billy Died ~ (LYRICS)

Billy was a kid
Who lived on my block
My best friend since the second grade
His mother was a fat girl who didn’t have a job
And daddy liked to swing it either way

Bill always talked about getting hit
For not lifting up the toilet seat

Little Billy
He just wanted to be free

And all the kids in school used to laugh at him
His clothes and hair
weren’t quite right for the day
He was always getting beat up
by a bully named Dave
And David thought that Billy was a fag

Billy always talked about this special place
Where only very special people go
Little Billy
Wanted just to be alone

Little Billy Died La La La La
Little Billy Died La La La La
Little Billy Died and he taught them all

Little Billy Cried La La La La
Little Billy Cried La La La La
Little Billy Died
And he taught them all

So Billy disappeared
From school for a week
The kids said he was weird and ran away

His mother found him hanging in their bathroom
I’m sure that he found his special place

And all the kids in school said they felt so sad.
So Sad.
But nobody ever really cared.
Little Billy
Lived his private little hell

Little Billy Died La La La La
Little Billy Died La La La La
Little Billy Died and he taught them all

Little Billy Cried La La La La
Little Billy Cried La La La La
Little Billy Died
And he taught them all
