The tire exploded on the recycling truck yesterday afternoon, so it’s been an interesting week. We still managed to get to 220 houses in Hildebran today and pull in about 6000 pounds of stuff. The perfect background for me to come home and write an ambient love song right? This song is more of a mood piece than a normal vocal song. It’s meant to capture that feeling when you first fall in love.
Over a foot of nice fluffy snow and a whole weekend to be snowed in. It’s nice to look out of the studio window and see it hanging from all of the trees outside. And I think it gave me a good photo to use as the album cover for January’s songs.
I will be putting out a cd every month with all of the songs. Look for the first one in about three weeks. I can’t believe it’s been 29 days already.
Anyway I wrote and recorded music to four songs today and so far have managed to put words to just this one.I’m also doing the guitar parts for our “Follow the Feeling” album too, so I’ve been switching back in forth between the two.
“Driving in two Directions” is kind of an analogy comparing driving to healthy relationships. The character in the song seems to always drive but never actually get there. I coaxed Adair into playing the keyboard parts on this one too. Thanks for listening!!
