Contradiction is Part of the Creative Process

To call myself out right away, yes, I am posting about a new song when my previous entry was about how I’ve been writing too many new songs, but its not what you think! I finished this song right before that last post, and then realized it was time to sit and get a better feel for what I want to do with all these songs. So this song is the last straw of sorts. For now. I swear, I can stop writing songs whenever I want to. I just don’t want to.

Anyway, the new song. I decided to try something more pop sounding, either because I’d been on a Beatles kick for a little while or just because it had been awhile since I tried it, I’m not sure which.  Tried to hit all (or most) of the bases with it. It’s upbeat in its rhythm, asking for help in a state of vague emotional upheaval in which life has gotten the better of the singer. That is what most pop songs are about, right?

I’m not sure if it’s catchy enough though… like, pop song catchy. That will show overtime, I suppose. And more importantly, if it should need it, it can be fine tuned and worked on, because I am NOT going to work on making more new things for a little while, so that I can concentrate on getting all these other things you haven’t heard to a presentable state.

Yes, that is wishful thinking. So fingers crossed.
