Science research just found out that the human brain is not fully developed until men turn 25 and it’s a little sooner for women. So basically we are clinically insane until we’re about 25.
That’s why we do so many crazy things at an early age and eventually start becoming more sensible. And it’s also why we’ll do the craziest things and feel the craziest things when we’re young and in love.
That’s what “Crazy or Crazy in Love” ponders, ‘are you really crazy or is being in love what is making you do crazy things.’
We all wish we were a super hero at some point or another in life. At least I hope so or my Dorkometer may have just gone up a bit. Dorkometry aside, at one point in my adolescence I was a master collector of comic books. My writing actually began solely because of Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns’. I remember the first serious thing I wrote one afternoon at the World of Clothing parking lot in the back of the ’79 Malibu which I later inherited, and put bull-horns on.
Anyway, “Super Hero Theme” raises the concept of a guy that thinks he’s a super hero chiefly because he has a Super Hero Theme. Whatever works I guess.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
