July 9th “Don’t Regret the Future”

What a day to be one of those days.   Actually, it’s been a pretty decent day.  I’m at home for the entire weekend which is an extremely rare thing.   I should probably work on my massive back yard fence project but the A/C feels too good today after picking up recycling in the 100 degree heat all week.

Anyway, we’ve been thinking about the future a lot the last few days, so that’s where this song was born.   Thanks for listening!

July 8th “Magic on the Water”

Another tough day in the heat.   I wish it was winter time already (after having a horrible winter).  Anyway, we at least got to drive around Lake James on our new recycling route today.  That was nice.   That’s probably where this song came from.   I sat down when I got home tonight and wrote three different things.  This was the first one that made it to the tape.   Thanks for listening!

July 7th “Love You”

What a brutal day on the old recycling truck.   I made the mistake of not bringing water (opting for Hardee’s lemonade/tea mixture which was only desirable for the first 32 oz.’s).   Needless to say, I was not in optimal condition.   However, we got ‘r done, as we always do.    We start new territory tomorrow, Lake James awaits.   It will be sweet looking at some nice lake scenery while sorting plastic bottles and soup cans.   I’m not averse to jumping in at some point during the route either.   That was my trademark when I was a pool maintenance guy, I always had to jump in to test the product.

On a totally different note, “Love You” is a sweet love song touting the wonders of openness and frankness, two things that every relationship needs an injection of.

Thanks for listening!!

July 5th “I Never Do That”

We had a great show down in Georgia last night.  It was on the lake and it was beautiful.  Once again my song “Crazy or Crazy in Love” from this blog project was the biggest hit.   I’m pretty excited about the second half of the year.   I guess I feel that since I’ve gotten this far, I may as well use some of the things I’ve learned about myself and my commitment to making music.

Anyway, “I Never Do That” came from something I heard someone say tonight as I was out scoping conversations for song tidbits.   This is one of those songs that shows you don’t have to have a lot of different words to create a song.

July 1st “July Alibi”

I’m officially half way through with my song a day and blog about it project.  Technically, I think the actual day would  be the 3rd of July.   Which, ironically I’ll probably be posting today anyway as I’m catching up from being out of town and unable to record.
“July Alibi” is a funky number about getting things done this month despite the lack of time, excessive heat and occasional fatigue.   I’m always optimistic but sometimes I have to give myself a pep talk or two.

Thanks for listening!
