about

influenced by the Babies song, "Alligator"
kinda funny, sort of. i've aimed not to copy other people's exact songs, er, like their melody phrasing, and chords. I think that's kinda part of why I started writing songs. To say what I wanted to say, in my own way. And so I started writing songs, for years..and tried to learn how. But I'd learn from other people, even if I was being stubborn about not copying. I would copy, to varying extents. And I would get up, and down about my songs, and my tries at performing/recording them. And then I hear "Alligator" and I loved it, and I realized the phrasing seemed so simple. Like, wow, maybe I could do that, and do it confidently. maybe that's my way..er, our way..so, i borrowed the verse structure, and wrote some lyrics. And the lyrics have some hope and confidence in them, which, I suppose I needed. So Thank you to the Babies, for that song. And while I continue to learn, and get down, and up, this song is kinda like a little milestone for me. I posted it, and then took it off, cuz i got to thinking, maybe it's not good of me to sell a song that borrows so much of it's structure from someone else's..I dunno. I guess I wanna share it. maybe i'll just put it up for free, or donation if u like. Check out the Babies song, "Alligator." It's a great song.
