For about the last six months I’ve been mostly listening to classical music when I’m working or riding in the car. I’ve heard everything else so many times that it’s refreshing to be constantly hearing new pieces of music that I rent from the library and hear on WDAV. I’ll still listen to all kinds of stuff but old Vivaldi keeps calling me back.
That’s what inspired this one. This is my keyboard classical composition.
Monday again and back on the recycling boat. Of course I made the mistake of spending my whole weekend building my massive fence, so I’m starting the week sore; which is not a good thing. Oh well, at least today I managed to work, drive 130 miles, go to the library, return my mower and get a new one, practice for my golf tournament this weekend in Georgia, mow the grass (with my new cordless mower), write this song and the song for tomorrow (because I’ll be out of town) and hang out with my lovely wife and our pets (and watch the Lakers).
For some reason money is the subject for the second day in a row. Honestly, it’s not something that’s on my mind right now for the first time in my life. This must be how I’m exorcising those demons.
Three or four days a week I drive up and down the mountain about a hundred and ten miles. I usually listen to a book on CD. Mostly biographies, but I’ve listened to every biography in the Buncombe Co. Public Library system so now I’m unfortunately into fiction. Currently I’m listening to the 26 disc Anna Karenin, book I’ve already read in my college days.
Anyway, today’s song “Favorite Song for the Moment” is about driving and getting lost listening to music (not a book on Cd). Sometime’s, even when you’re feeling really bad, a song will come on the radio and make everything okay, at least for a little while. That’s what this song is about.
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.
