Description

I want to share the story behind my latest track, "The TechTimes Scam". This song was born out of a frustrating experience that many of us in the industry might relate to: falling victim to deceptive marketing practices, specifically unrequested spam emails.

It all started with an unsolicited email from TechTimes, a seemingly reputable tech news website. This email, which landed in my inbox without my consent, offered me a feature in their upcoming article about the best royalty-free stock music platforms of 2024. In Europe, such unsolicited emails are not just annoying—they're illegal. And let's be honest, they're unwelcome in almost every country.

Initially, it sounded like a fantastic opportunity. They promised high visibility, SEO-focused content, and a spot in their top 5 list. All I had to do was pay a hefty fee. The email listed different price points for different spots, with a tempting discount for the No.1 spot if I acted quickly.

As I delved deeper, something felt off. The email seemed too generic, and the promises were too grandiose. I asked for more details, hoping to validate their claims. What I found was a web of misleading information and pay-to-play tactics designed to exploit eager content creators and businesses.

Frustrated by this blatant attempt to monetize false promises, I decided to channel my energy into something creative. Thus, "The TechTimes Spam Scam" was born. This song is my way of shedding light on the deceptive practices that plague our industry. It's a catchy, yet poignant anthem that calls out the scams and encourages others to be vigilant.

I hope this song resonates with you and serves as a reminder to always question too-good-to-be-true offers. Thank you for supporting me and for being part of the journey towards a more honest and transparent creative community.


LYRICS

[Verse]
I got an email, said it’s from TechTimes,
Promising me spotlight, in their digital lines,
Top 5, they said, in royalty-free stock,
All it takes is cash, it’s quite a shock.

[Pre-Chorus]
They talked about reach, SEO dreams,
But something felt off, behind the screens,
Demographics, analytics, all seemed planned,
But the more they spoke, the less I could stand.

[Chorus]
TechTimes, you're spamming my mind,
Selling fake dreams, oh, what a grind,
Pay to play, that's your game,
But we see through, we know your name,
Scammy schemes, wrapped up neat,
TechTimes, you're dancing on deceit.

[Verse]
They offered a discount, just for today,
$4,000 dollars, that’s the price to pay,
For the number one spot, in a list they create,
But it’s all just a ruse, a money-making bait.

[Bridge]
Newsletter reach, and social media hype,
But it’s all for show, just another type,
Of trick and deceit, to pull you in,
TechTimes, your game is wearing thin.

[Chorus]
TechTimes, you're spamming my mind,
Selling fake dreams, oh, what a grind,
Pay to play, that's your game,
But we see through, we know your name,
Scammy schemes, wrapped up neat,
TechTimes, you're dancing on deceit.

[Outro]
So here’s to the spammers, and their shady ploys,
We’ll spread the word, we’ll make some noise,
TechTimes, your scam is up, we’ve seen the light,
No more tricks, we’re ready to fight.
