Sunday Afternoon Blues

This is the second song I wrote last year out of 365. It reflects these lazy Sunday afternoon’s like today where you wish you had one more day of weekend before it’s back on the grind on Monday morning. Thanks for listening!

Jan 18th “Daytime Worker Honky Tonk Nighttime Singer”

Big day on the recycling boat today and a trip to the dentist to boot.   Dad and I had a good time stuffing cardboard into every crevasse of the truck.

Today’s song is the first thing that popped out when I sat down in the studio today.   I broke my good acoustic back out after confining it to a dark place to get some moisture back in it’s wood.

“Daytime Worker” is also the first blues style song I’ve done in this endeavor.  I’ve purposely not written much blues for this because it can be perceived as the easy way out.  Mainly, however, I prefer to jump around musical genres to keep things interesting.

You never know, like the song says “one of these days, I’m gonna be an overnight sensation”.
