The tire exploded on the recycling truck yesterday afternoon, so it’s been an interesting week. We still managed to get to 220 houses in Hildebran today and pull in about 6000 pounds of stuff. The perfect background for me to come home and write an ambient love song right? This song is more of a mood piece than a normal vocal song. It’s meant to capture that feeling when you first fall in love.
I was feeling a bit rough today after staying up to watch the Lakers then getting up at 5. We had to pick up recycling from 220 houses in Hildebran which didn’t help my situation much, but alas I persevered and made it through another work week once again.
I haven’t done a spiritual type song in a while, the idea comes from a quote that Wayne Dyer says a lot “we are spiritual beings living in human form.
Honestly, I had an uneventful day recycling for the big city of Hildebran (no wrecks this week) and a pleasant evening tonight in Asheville. I even got to hear a decent band doing “All Blues” from Miles Davis’s transcendent ‘Kind of Blue’ album.
Yet somehow, I sat down in my studio tonight and wrote my first horror song. It’s not blood and guts and all that. But it’s got a little suspense, a little confusion and a trick ending.
I don’t think Rob Zombie will be calling anytime soon though.
