I was going to post a rain song on this grey day in Atlanta but I saw this song and decided funny was better than gloomy today. Thanks for listening!
I’ll keep it super old school again today. This one was recorded in Jeramy’s trailor in Swannanoa maybe in 1994? John Crowe is also involved and if you listen closely you can hear my Dad overdubbed in the background. My Mom has been trying to get me to revive this song for a long time. Thanks for listening!
I think I’ll get a little country today on this hot Atlanta day. Wouldn’t it be great if we all could live like we have a free milkshake waiting for us at the next drive through? Thanks for listening!
Since I’m sitting in McDonald’s (aka my office away from home), I think this song is appropriate. No cheeseburger for me today though. Maybe tomorrow.
Only in Atlanta. I thought I’d take a chance and go to my neighborhood convenience store for some hot sauce. Not only did they have my favorite brand (Lousiana One Shot hot sauce) they also had at least 10 other brands of hot sauces in large and small sizes! As I said before, only in Atlanta!
My song tribute to my favorite food. Sugar!
It was only a matter of time before I wrote a song about sugar. Food tends to be a recurring theme in my song a day’s.. Probably because it’s a constant thing that we have to think about. Sugar is definitely one of my favorite foods. I realize that it’s also an epidemic that is killing people everywhere daily. I’ve even heard from many sources that by cutting out sugar you can conquer cancer. Undoubtedly it feeds on sugar as well.
By the way I’m writing this while drinking extremely sweet tea.
It’s funny when I’m at home in Asheville or even going out up here, I eat ultra healthy. Everything organic, mostly salads, moderate meat and wheat. But when I’m on the recycling path working in Morganton, I basically eat fast food at least once a day. I try to limit myself to one burger a week but that usually turns into at least two. Not to mention all of the other $1 items there is these days. I’ve gotten so brainwashed into thinking everything should be a dollar that I get mad when lunch is more than $3.
The dollar menu is one of the greatest economic mutations of the down turn the last few years.
Anyway, that’s kind of what “Value Meal Sonata” is about and it’s zero calories!
I can’t believe this is the first song I’ve written about barbeque since I’ve been doing this song a day thing (or anytime for that matter). On my recycling route and generally driving everywhere in the South, you see a barbeque place every few miles. When I lived in Athens, Georgia I was quite the connoisseur, that is until I got debilitating ulcers. But I’m over that now and eat BBQ a few times month and I’ve tasted hundreds of different kinds, even what they call BBQ in remote places like Germany and Amsterdam.
After all my travels, Hursey’s BBQ in Morganton is still my favorite. I used to convince Amy to eat there every day when I worked at Schoenen Pool and Spa about twelve years ago. That’s what I thought of when I wrote this song.
