song #14

So after all the stress of life lately I have been obsessing over my kicked cigarette habit. Oh, how lovely it would be to just open a new pack of cigarettes, brush the loose tobacco off the top of the 20 little friends I find waiting there for me, smiling almost, and pull out the first crisp white Marlboro Light. Why, I'd sit on a park bench on a brisk autumn morning, strike a match, and laugh with the carefree bliss of a school boy. But, I digress....


song #14 is called 20 Cigarettes

Song #13

Uh oh. 13 is supposed to be unlucky, isn't it? Never understood quite why that is, but as my luck is usually subpar 13 can't possibly rattle me.
Well, Happy (belated) Turkey. I hope you all drifted off into a sweet Tryptophan induced slumber like I did. I suppose it could have been the wine, too.
In honor of the Thanksgiving Holiday I got a U-turn ticket and it's $150 bucks! I put up a little album of four songs for only 2 BUCKS to help pay this beast. That's 4 songs for 2 bucks, what a bargain!

This song is about a girl who just can't ever seem to act right.

Song #12

Whew! This is the end of month three, and altho I haven't had a million page views like I had hoped, I still have met some great people and heard some very encouraging words. I must admit, when I have days of 2 page views I feel like giving up, but alas...
This weeks song came together after several strong images stuck in my mind:
1) The imprint of lipstick on the rim of a wine glass
2) Black spike heels, and the girl who wore them, and
3) the various hearts those heels impaled


Again, please consider purchasing any of the songs from the little store below. The money goes to me and my 'Feed-a-hungry-musician-who-has-a-job-but-lives-in-LA-and-so-is-
really-really-poor'
fund. Oh...you hadn't heard of that one 'eh? Well...now you have.

Song #11

Well, I'm not sure where this one came from. It's a little out of the norm for me, perhaps. I was thinking about building things--specifically in terms of 'building a life' or 'building a future' or 'building something from nothing'. Then I got this idea of a brick man who is sort of taking himself apart to build a wall to keep everything out--but vanishing in the process. (Don't steal that idea--its copyrighted!)
Wait! There's more...
Then I thought about the bricks as a metaphor for years, and the more you lay them down the more you are diminishing; like our little brick man, see. Then this song came out.
That's all.

God, I need to get out of the house more.

Song #10

Serious bouts of melancholy this week gave rise to this song about giving up. This song was one of those mysterious events that just kind of come thru you, because before I knew it--it was finished. Nice when that happens, isn't it? I started out intending to make it a slow morose hide-in-your-bedroom type Brian Wilson thing, but it just didn't want to go that way, and I'm happy with it.

A bit of cool news, too--the .blogspot. was dropped from the address--so now it's just www.onesongperweek.com Much better! And AND! I got a great write up by the folks at Puddlegum so go and check it out, and add them to your blogroll and to your list of people to tell other people about!
