Ah the “fall” songs are starting to pop out. Something about Autumn makes me write deliciously melancholy music. I actually put out a cassette album called “Fall” in November of 1993. It was drastically inspired by Bob Dylan’s “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid” soundtrack. What a great album that is.
Anyway, today’s song is about being mortal. It sucks, but that seems to be what we all have in common. My trip to the chiropractor inspired this along with the diagnosis that I am permanently ruining my back by doing the work I’m currently doing. I don’t know why, I’ve only lifted around 400,000 pounds in the last two and half years recycling. Thanks for listening!
What can I say, I’ve always been a dreamer. I’m in my mid-thirties and I’m still dreaming about my future. That’s kind of why I’ve been doing this song a day blog this year; so I can honestly say that I’ve put in the work to move forward with my songwriting and music career. I also wanted to test my sneaking suspicion that I had the capacity to create every day. Now if I could just create that massive fortune that I’ve been dreaming about. 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.
