New Song: Why you gotta do me like that?

Okay. Well, this song turned out completely not how I intended it.

First, the music isn’t what I had in my head when I was writing the song last week on Tuesday and Wednesday, but I just couldn’t get that particular melody out when I sat down Sunday to work it up. Then, after getting something together Sunday afternoon I let it sit and forgot what I did, so I had to come up with something else last night.

I don’t think this version is too far off what I originally put together, but it is different. That’s not saying that I don’t like it, though. I think it works pretty well. The song moves. Doesn’t seem to boring or repetitive or anything.

So it eventually worked out, I guess.

Now, onto those lyrics. It may sound like this song is definitely about one thing, but it’s not. I wrote it after a very specific interaction I had with a very specific person last Tuesday.

Or, maybe it is about that one thing. That’s all I’m hearing now, anyway, even though I know what it’s actually about.

What do you hear, huh?

Also, remember that I’m performing on Wednesday the 10th at Honky Tonk BBQ down in Pilsen.

And, because the 10th is the one-year anniversary of when I released my 2 albums last year, I’ll have some copies that I’ll be giving away and some copies on special discount sale for anyone who comes to the show. Just come up at the set break or after we’re done to claim your copy.
