Justin Landers – The Corner Store

Written by Justin Landers and Recorded & Produced by Simon Johnson at Hillbilly Hut Records, ‘The Corner Store’ is a traditional style country song about the demise of the neighborhood corner store through corporate giant greed. “The song will take you back to your childhood and have you comparing the olden days with the new” said Kaz Johnson in her totally biased fan review.

“The idea for this song came when I was cooking dinner one night” Justin recollected. “We had run out of something and I had to put everything on pause, jump in the car and head downtown to the supermarket. It was such an inconvenience for something so simple” Justin said.
“I got to thinking about the corner store we used to have in our local area, Cikaric’s was the name. It used to be just 2 blocks away, its’ closed now” Justin said. “There used to be a corner store at least every 2 to 3 blocks in Orange. Now there is lucky to be maybe 3 or 4 stores left, in the entire city”.

“This was an enjoyable song to write. As I started to thrash out ideas for the song, I found my memory drifting back to my early childhood and my time growing up in Cobar. We had a little corner store at the end of our street. It was owned and run by Mrs Rankin. She knew all the local gossip and her husband owned and operated the butcher shop next door. I reminisced about mum sending me to the shop and being able to spend the change for my efforts, and how exciting it was to decide how to get the best bang for the two bob in change, in lollies. Should I get 5 Cobber’s and 10 Freckles? Or should I get something else”? Justin recalled with a smile. “You have to ask yourself if today’s conveniences are really better than they used to be.

It’s sad that these icons of Aussie life are disappearing because they just cannot compete with the corporate giants” Justin sighed.

‘The Corner Store’ is the 5th single release from Justin’s album, Free Time And Money. The album is available now from all digital media stores and on CD from www.justinlandersmusic.com
