Valentine’s Day, holiday or not? Daytona 500, definite holiday for millions of people (especially in the South).
Every so often they both fall on the same way and it brings lovers closer together or really pisses one of them off. I’m lucky enough to have an average interest in Nascar. I typically watch the last ten laps of a race and passively pull for Tony Stewart and Dale Jr. Although the banter from DW and the commentators is usually pretty funny throughout the race.
And Valentine’s Day is always a good reason to go out and have fun with my wife.
Anyway, “Nascar and Valentine’s Day” is a song about a husband who wants to celebrate a romantic Valentine’s Day but his wife is too tied up with the Daytona 500 because Little E (Dale Jr.) is on the pole.
He pulls a twist at the end of the song and makes up for it.
What a day. I worked on a hilarious rap song for a new cartoon that’s going to be on Fox. My Damn! Show friends are the one’s doing the show and they ask me for some music every now and then, usually when it involves rap beats. I actually got to rap the lyrics today for the demo so that their actor can get an idea.
That’s what inspired “Glass Pack Mufflers”. I’m kind of half rapping this. My rap voice is not my forte which is why I generally refrain from it.
The chorus makes up for my raps because it is the old school funky jam. I got my drums set back up so I figured I better make with the funk. Adair lent some vocals to the mix as well.
The lyrics are about speed demons with loud mufflers and a proclivity to be the annoying guy at the light . I can make fun because I used to be a little like them in my younger days. I’m a gas conserver now because I drive a lot.
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.
