Before You Write Today
Thanks for sharing Chuck. It sounds nice and mellow.
Nice song. Not sure I could listen to it from sunrise to sunset, but there's not a lot of songs I could do that with. In fact, I'd probably have a mental breakdown if I tried.
Mondegreens all over the plays!
P.S. Happy Birthday Ricky Lee Jones!
The moment I hear her voice, Chuck E's in Love starts playing in my mind. That song is on the soundtrack of my childhood.
Beautiful song, Chuck. This is one of mine: https://youtu.be/KtlgYxa6BMU?si=42wQEYdkdPWpmcUe
Nothing like sparkin up a one hitter of infused yesca and putting the right jam or playlist on repeat to get the writing flowing.
Spooky how I was thinking of asking you last night. What a serendipitous post :)) thank you!
What other songs do you like?
Highly recommend Moses Sumney
I have listened to songs over and over like that many times, often much older songs though
Drunk History is a great device when I need inspiration for burning the language. I love certain episodes so much. This one is my favorite. When the Roman crowd chants "You wack. You wack. You wack!" I lose it every time! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ab4rYDR0yY
“Some days, I’ll listen to the same song on repeat from sunrise to sunset.”
Ha some days I just do this anyway, just *because*😂😂
I love both the music and the story of this song and I have since I was a kid.
I'd forgotten about her. Thanks for the reminder. Such lush cool.
I alternate between Dylan & Eddie Fisher. I then attack the comments section of the NYP.
I had completely forgotten her music! I listened to her in Dublin when I was in my twenties. It’s funny, that music and writing thing. Often when I am writing on the laptop, my fingers move across the keys as though they were playing a piano, and I am playing a musical piece. But until I read ‘Priming the Pump’, it never occurred to me that the words were the music. A wonderful thought to start the day with. Thank you so much!
