July 20th “Can’t Stop Wanting What I Want”

I was fooled by cloudy skies this morning on the recycling route, thinking it was not going to be hot.   What a beggar’s dream that was.   That’s kind of what today’s song is about.   There’s no reason to think about being in cool weather all day long or it’s just torturing myself.  Also, it’s even worse to constantly think about how hot it is all the time (like I did today).  I used to work in Georgia though, this really isn’t that bad.   On top of that, it’s 130 degrees in Baghdad for criminey’s sake!

March 21 “Working on Working it Out”

Back on the grind.   5:30am came a little early this morning.  I’m the type that can’t make myself go to bed early, so calling it a night at 10:30pm is really a huge undertaking for me.

Especially when I have countless things to do in the studio and a work week looming that’s basically keeping me away from home until Saturday.   That’s my sob story for the night.

It snowed in Asheville today for a few hours and I laughed at Spring which is supposed to be around the corner.  Then I went and bought a new cordless mower.   I guess Spring is around the corner.

“Working on Working it Out” came from something I said in a conversation with Chris Singleton today.  It features my new keyboard once again.

March 16 “Foolin’ Around”

What can I say,  I guess I was in a silly mood this morning when I wrote this.

I’ve been shopping for mini keyboards online and was looking at demos of different one’s on YouTube.   They all tend to be called  ‘Fooling around on the..”.   I guess that’s the trend for demoing keyboards.

That’s where  I started the song from and then it slowly degenerated from there.

March 7 “Another Beaming Ray of Your Life”

Ah the joys of taking on a project like this.  I’m still a song behind and to avoid going two down, I stayed up late writing and recording a song last night.  Then I got up early this morning to write and record one before I leave Asheville to work for  a few days in a row out of town.

Luckily I seem to be just as creative at 7am as I am at 7pm.  Actually maybe more so, although I’m not as energetic as you can imagine.

Now I’ve got to decide, do I start another song to get ahead tomorrow or do I try to get a last minute appointment with my chiropractor.
