My son gave me a beat to work with. MY SON ACTUALLY GAVE ME A BEAT TO WORK WITH!!! I have to say it like that because he makes so many and I get, "Hey Mom, check this out" all the time.
"Oh, I like that one, can I have that one?"
That's our repetitious conversation that we have -- allll the time. He creates such nice pieces and he never shares. He's always like, "I've got something planned for this one...I've got something planned for that one..."
Though I surround myself with instruments, I don't play any of them. I play "at" them and wish I could just magically develop skill and talent. Doesn't happen that way though. So, a head's up -- when you meet musicians who are really talented, can really play and move you - tip them! Understand that it takes years and years to develop the skills and the ability to do what they do. Most bands are paid very little and it's just not right....
Okay back to Ollie Ollie. So my wonderful, talented, handsome son in all of his benevolence gave me a piece of music. (Actually two pieces! I need to write to the second one still.)
I like message tunes the best and when I write, my mind gets stuck in message tunes and love songs. Thus, those are my topics. Take a listen and see if you understand the message behind in the song.
Thanks for listening. As always, I'd love your feedback. And if you want to take a look at the lyrics, they are here.
