I listen to a book on CD every day driving up and down the mountain from Asheville to Morganton and back. I was thinking today about all the biographies I’ve heard (at least 50). I retain the information so well when I first hear it but after time I start to forget all the intricate stories and details. That’s very sad to me, but yet at the same time, it makes it so I can go back and listen to the books again and enjoy it all over. Hello “The Life of Marco Polo”! That’s my favorite book that I’ve listened to that I’ve already forgotten.
This song is more about someone who goes through school and life who doesn’t quite figure it out until he gets a life education. Thanks for listening!
I need to listen to my song from yesterday more and feel like I have more time in my day. I had a late gig last night and slept a little late which cut into my studio time today. As did that 18 holes at Reem’s Creek Golf Course where I fired a mid winter 73, maybe my best score in February to date.
Anyway, “I Like the Way it Looks But I Hate the Way it Shows” is a silly almost heavy metal number. I honestly meant to spend more time on the song but that’s just the way it goes I guess.
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.
