Oh dear...seems we have opened an unlikely pandora's box of songs and they seem to keep coming. It's not a bad problem to have...too many songs to write....but it's kind of a funny conundrum of sorts for right now. See, we're just about to release our album 'Odd Angled Love Songs for Humans'. I love this collection of songs and we're really getting excited to plan and sort out the album release party and all those other details that go with an album release.
It is not really the time for creative pursuits. It's more the time for nose to the grindstone, let's get things done sort of pursuits. Yet don't you find invariably when there is a task at hand you find that you can't leave your sock drawer another second without organizing it? Or you find yourself writing three songs at once that are hard to even keep track of. Yep, that's what's kind of happening for us too.
I'm not really complaining. It's just kind of funny. I like the songs and I love when we think of interesting ideas and melodies. There is one about love songs, there is one about getting lost, and there is one that kind of remembers a particularly magical day of a time when I was young. Interestingly, none of them are seriously depressing, which is a real shift from the last couple. I wonder if I tracked the songs we write by seasons if I would find a pattern....I suspect I might. There's that statistics training looking for trends...damn science.
Anyway, I'm sure we'll get the real work done, it's not something to be upset about. And it's a lovely thing for a cool temperature Spring Sunday. Unless it warms up. Then we'll have to take it outside. Oh please.
