October 30th “Cool Water for a Thirsty Soul”

Saturday never felt so good.  I guess that’s why I decided to get a little funky.   The title of this song came from a Samuel Adams quote.  He was  one of the most effective writers in the history of America.  Basically because he is the reason why we started resisting the English eventually starting the revolution.  He doesn’t get any credit because he burned most of his letters.  Therefore, he didn’t leave much history behind to be discovered and immortalized.  As compared to George Washington, who actually wrote everything with history in mind.

July 4th “Freedom to Get Funky”

I guess July 4th is a day that warrants it’s own song.  I don’t feel inclined on all holidays to mark it with a song with my song a day project.   This last year however, I basically listened to every biography of every founding father.  It’s pretty interesting, they signed the declaration of independence in 1776 but it really didn’t kick in for years.  Even when Andrew Jackson came along forty years later, it was a daily struggle to keep it together.   It makes you realize how far we’ve come in just a few hundred years and how fragile it really is.

I’m heading to perform on a boat dock on beautiful Lake Rabun before the fireworks start.  Have a great day!
