One Hundred Flowers

whew.. after drinking late last night with jill and wes and julia and jeff, we went to work landscaping again this morning. ugh..

anyhow, i love this new song. One Hundred Flowers blooming at the same time. i started it last night, just playing the drums as a kind of joke experiment.. back in college i was real into south african drum ensembles and such. so it started off vaguely traditional.

then i put banjo and slide guitar.. bass, things like that. and started to figure out some lyrics..

but the real magic started today, after work.. i was kinda tired and cranky, but the song just kept getting better and better. the poppy la la la sections, then the big sung outro.. i was falling in love, love love. then i had this hole in the middle, and i couldn't figure out what to do with it. stupid g major solos.. but once i figured out what the hole lacked, i was smitten all over.. little frustrations, big rewards. it was awesome.

i actually jumped around and danced when it was finished i was so happy.
