Episode #34: (There’ll Always Be) Another Day - (Song at 9:10)
Hi there, welcome! How would you like to sit back and have a listen to a songwriter speak? Now's your opportunity. I'm sitting at my piano - which I noodle away on - sometimes a little absently, as I speak. I also use the piano to demonstrate aspects of what I'm talking about.
And what I'm talking about this week Is song #584: Another day.. Where did it come from? Neil the lead guitarist in our band suggested it: “Pete, there's so many songs about winning... What about one about ...losing. I think it'd be a winner!" Ha. He's got a dry sense of humour, has Neil.
I also talk about the idea of participation being the important thing. Success is.. what it is.. along the way.
I like to turn things around to the positive, best I can, so I couldn't help myself: I gave it an uplifting twist at the end. Perhaps I failed at writing a song about failure!
The demo itself has a good feeling about it. The band have had a dabble with this song here. It hasn't made it on an album yet, but I think it will not far away.
It's been another episode of exploration, opening up... As an artist, you can come across as sounding a bit .. Vulnerable. And I think that's important. You're honest about your feelings, you're inviting the listener in.
Which is precisely what I'm doing here. Tune in now, hear some new music... ( I’m loving sharing my music this way and talking about it ).
I hope you enjoy this week's episode... And if you do, there's another 30 odd episodes here..that means 30 odd new songs.. Please leave a favourable comment / tell your friends / share this far and wide - thank you in advance!
