I had the guitar part for this song mostly written when I learned that one of my best friends had recently broken up with his boyfriend. I kept thinking of them at a bar called Red House and the imagery became the lyrics.
Inspired by a man who puts his concept of marriage ahead of individual's rights and takes the idea of love out of the equation. Also inspired by the passage of Prop 8 in California.
Inspired by an e-mail we received at work. No one I know knows what it means.
Somewhat inspired by Lunches with Brian. I want salt at Asian restaurants, and my friend Brian suggests soy sauce. Soy sauce is not salt. That was the beginning.
This song was inspired by my former supervisor, Gary, who thought the emphasized syllable in aspartame was the second one. That made it sound like a superhero name instead of a sweet chemical. So I made four sweeteners into people and sang about them. I invite other songwriters to listen and finish the story. I lost steam at the end.
This song came to me the first day of National Solo Album Month when I was supposed to be writing and recording music, but all I wanted to do was nap (like most Saturdays). Watch for a behind the scenes video to be released sometime during this millenium.
Inspired by a trip to Spring Lake Park in Texarkana, TX. Based on true stories. Except for the evil scientist part.
This is a tribute to the movie Fandango that I wrote during National Solo Album Month.The song started as a guitar riff, and as I was listening to that and trying to find lyrical inspiration, the words "the look on his face" came to mind. That made me think of the look on Kevin Costner's face at the end of Fandango, and that's when I decided to do a tribute song. I actually ordered the DVD with overnight shipping so I could get the details right.
