This song is starting to grow on me a bit. It’s about remembering old times of acting crazy growing up.
Maybe recycling in my old Oak Hill Bulldog territory brought this one out of me today. Congratulations to my classmate Leon Johnson for his Burke County Hall of Fame honors in a few weeks. He killed it at Carolina and was a great pro too. With the Jets was my favorite part of his NFL career.
Anyway, “Chalk it Up to Acting Like a Fool” can be put into any adolescent context you want (or any adult for that matter). It’s about how we always thought we were indestructible too, which led to lots of air time for our respective vehicles and landings that as long as you kept a firm grip on the wheel, you could land it with minimal damage to adjacent shrubbery. Frank Zappa cassette intact. Thanks for listening!!
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.
