June 1st “It’s in the Soup”

June is popping in a little funky.  I don’t know where this one came from but I kind of like it.   It kind of takes me back to my ‘Dre Days’ producing rap music in Athens, Georgia.    It’s funny I never really rapped ever even though I could have.  I actually feel kind of confident doing it now.  Probably because I can do anything to fill my song a day option and blame it on that.   I do seem to inflect a Doctor Dre type style to my raps however.    My calling card back in the day was that I always had an upright piano to add to the beat to give it a really signature sound.   This is all Korg Triton on this one though.

Thanks for listening!!

Song of the day May 15th “Super Super Super Fantastic”

Back to my fence building obsession for the weekend.  I’ve gotten 15% of my 700 foot endeavor done so far.  Only 85% to go!

As for my song a day for 2010, I’m fairing much better.  Can you believe I’m closing in on halfway already.   This is my 135th song, that’s probably as many as I wrote last decade.     Hopefully this one is worthy of it’s 135th song importance.   Actually, this one is mostly just a funky groove number (shocker).
