Jan 31st “Snowy Mix of Memories”

I have made it a month!  31 songs in 31 days.   It’s interesting to see the trends I’ve had.

I wrote songs in 17 different major and minor keys

9 out of 31 of the songs were slow.   In the first few weeks I wrote a bunch of slow songs before getting into dance mode in the late part of the month.

There’s three or four stinkers in there I’ll admit, but I look at each song at least as a learning experience.

There’s actually about 8 or 9 really good ones which is encouraging.  “Snow Day”, “Sunday Afternoon Blues”, “Scratches in the Woodgrain”, “Glass Pack Mufflers & Overhead Cams” (super huge), “Heavy Metal Nice Guy”, “Hot Cold & Out of Control”, “Country Boy Funk in the City” are some of the best.

Although my personal favorite is still “The Sweetest Thing is Everything”.  What can I say, I love those french horns.

“Snowy Mix of Memories” is a reflection on January and trying to make time move a little slower.

Thanks for listening, 11 months to go!!!!

Jan 25 “My Old Soul”

I must be in a philosophical mood today or something.   I think this is two in a row that I’m waxing a little bit.

I’m told a lot that I have an old soul.  This is probably because not a lot surprises me and I’m the laid back go with the flow type.    I’ve never done a past life transgression yet, but I’ve heard awesome stories from friends who’ve done it.

Basically, the take away from this song is, not to listen to what society tells you about your body, you can feel as old or as young as you want to.  It’s up to you.
