Song Number 1: "Wears The Soap"
Due to January being a pain in the arse, today is the first chance I've had to actually do some recording, so I made the most of it. Written and recorded in five hours, I present to you the first song of my Song A Week 2011 project, "Wears The Soap." Make of it what you will - I'd be interested in your comments on what you think of it, and what the hell you think it might be about!
I've done my part - now it's time for you to do yours: click on the widget in the top right to donate to Parkinson's UK!
I'm really pleased with this first track. I don't think it's a particularly good song, but one of the reasons I started this project was to get over my nasty habit of starting a song, getting upset because it's not Life On Mars or Heart Of Glass and giving up.
So here, I started writing the music; had a couple of tantrums, but kept going, finished the music and started on the words; had another tantrum, but kept going; and before I knew it I had a finished song and could start having fun with the production. Thanks must go to my wife for giving me a stern word after my second hissy fit!
