Releases New Song Named "Jim Carrey"
10 Jan 2023    

By Eva Ara˙jo (Web correspondent)

Inspirations strikes at any time and can come from anywhere. Billy Raffoul is a Canadian rock singer-songwriter and on December 30, 2022, released a new song called "Jim Carrey".

The song was inspired by the 2004 movie "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind":

"It was September of 2019 and I was visiting Bianca Rose in Rotterdam before starting my first European tour as a headliner. After a most polite noise complaint, I found a tree stump outside of her apartment and wrote "Jim Carrey" in it's entirety that afternoon. The response since it's release on Friday has been overwhelming. I can't thank you enough. The Indiana Drones mixed and produced the song with me, Marty Bak mastered it, and Travis Latam is responsible for the artwork as well as the lyric video in my bio. Eternally grateful to Joel and Clementine for the inspiration behind this song."

The song is pretty amazing.

Good to know that we aren't the only one who are inspired by Jim's work.


"Jim Carrey" Lyrics
- by Billy Raffoul

I went back to the city
The snow it was pretty
But no one was sharing the view

That Italian restaurant
Everybody's jerkin' off
I didn't care for the food

It's not about where you've been
It's who you've gone there with

Like a scene from that movie
With Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey
It's easier to believe for all these years
You were never here

I could swear that the sun doesn't shine
Quite as bright as the light
Of your name in my phone

I know that it's only the rain
But I swear that my brain
Turns it into a song

Your memory has made me feel
Like this city's a god damn minefield

Like a scene from that movie
With Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey
It's easier to believe for all these years
You were never here

Like a scene from that movie
With Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey
It's easier to believe for all these years
Like a dream so bittersweet
I don't regret a single thing
But it's easier to believe for all these years
You were never here
