New Song: Get on that gospel ship (come on, come on)

Get on that gospel ship (come on, come on)

Here’s a tune I wrote…last week? On the 24th of…July? Whenever that was. Was 2 weeks ago. I just checked.

So the weeks fly by.

And, this isn’t a one line or one verse song like I said I was gonna stick to. (I also said I was gonna do one a day. Oh well.)

Anyway, I wrote this one in a minute. And then, after playing it through to some guitar music, I realized it’s actually probably part of this song from last year (which, actually doesn’t sound much like this old version, but there’s no recording of the newer version to my knowledge). Weird that the song from last year was from late July too. Maybe I was unconsciously trying to rewrite that one.

Either way, this is a second part to it, which I’m always looking to add into my songs since a lot of the time they only have one or two different parts in them. Mainly because I write them and then don’t work on them at all. Then I get bored with them and just throw them away.

And because I’m lazy.

Anyway, this new song has some good elements. I’m particularly drawn to the very end. The whispering-singing-type part. That’s interesting to me.

Now, I’m going to probably not post any new songs for a while. I need to go back and do some relearning. I haven’t done it in so long and I think it’s part of the reason I’ve gotten so lost. I stopped trying to teach myself anything. (Remember, I’m lazy by nature, so it’s easy to just sit back on my haunches and relax and say, “Ahh, I’ve done it….”)

But I’m done with that. My hands have been on fire for 2 or 3 years and I never knew why. Maybe this’ll help.

That being said (and making no sense), I’ll probably still post a bunch of new songs and new ideas and new diagrams of things that will help to become something again.

I’ll keep doing the Talkin’ Headline songs too. Those are funny to me. Plus, if I don’t, then I just don’t read any news at all and can’t fool as many people into thinking that I have any brains.
