Did It For Nothing

Album: Translucent (2020)


  • This soulful track from pop/rock singer-songwriter Betty Moon first appeared on her 2020 EP, Translucent. "It's really one of those songs that tells a story about trying your best to save a situation, but it doesn't work and you feel like it was all for nothing," she explained in a 2020 Songfacts interview. "You had the best of intentions but that somehow backfired on you. Even if you believe 110% that you're right, sometimes when it doesn't work out it can be really disheartening. Especially when people twist it into some other dark place that you never want to revisit."
  • This also showed up on Moon's album Little Miss Hollywood, which was released just a couple months after Translucent.
