This character in this song reminds me of a lot of folks in my teenage years. Not me of course. For some reason all guys have to go through a time period where tearing things up is cool. Getting away with it was always a plus.
That’s what “History of Deviant Behavior” is about. That kid you see walking down your block that you know doesn’t have the best intentions in mind. Maybe this song stems from the kid that threw a snowball at our house the other night and ran up the street.
The music has a little bit of a Curtis Mayfield vibe. Thanks for listening!!
Over a foot of nice fluffy snow and a whole weekend to be snowed in. It’s nice to look out of the studio window and see it hanging from all of the trees outside. And I think it gave me a good photo to use as the album cover for January’s songs.
I will be putting out a cd every month with all of the songs. Look for the first one in about three weeks. I can’t believe it’s been 29 days already.
Anyway I wrote and recorded music to four songs today and so far have managed to put words to just this one.I’m also doing the guitar parts for our “Follow the Feeling” album too, so I’ve been switching back in forth between the two.
“Driving in two Directions” is kind of an analogy comparing driving to healthy relationships. The character in the song seems to always drive but never actually get there. I coaxed Adair into playing the keyboard parts on this one too. Thanks for listening!!
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.
