Better Left Unsaid
I was only planning on posting one new song today, but as I walked out the door and left my house I saw my neighbor beating his wife. He had charged up the stairs of his porch and slammed her into the wall and then began choking her. I called to him to stop and he turned toward me with a blank look on his face. I could see his rage begin to shift towards me and then he started to come towards me. I quickly told him I saw everything and that I was going to call the police. He stopped and turned towards his wife who had her hand on her throat and was grasping for air. I reached for my phone and realized I left it in the house charging so I ran inside and grabbed it and quickly dialed 911. He fled while I was in the house, but I called the police anyway. I was late for work so I don't know how things worked out, but I'll risk an angry neighbor or two to prevent a catastrophe. I like to listen to the universe and so I am going to post a song I wrote about domestic violence called Better Left Unsaid. Its a story about a broken family. I think its a great song, however It is only in a demo state at this point One day I hope I can revisit it and give it the proper care it deserves, but it is now here for your enjoyment.
The song I originally wanted to post is called Run Devil Run and it is about a man selling his soul to the devil. I had just bought a program called Ableton and had sat down and began playing with the sounds. This song came about after 3 hours of playing around. None of the words or music existed before I sat down and I went to bed with the finished piece you hear now. All the music was generated on a typewriter keyboard, and as I got a feel for the song I wrote down some words and then sang them.
When I woke I listened to what I had created but had no clue at all as to what the notes were or how I could play the song live for anyone and so I rewrote it. It became The Devil's Kitchen or The Devil's Jamboree. I rewrote the song on a Sunday morning in a matter of 2-3 hours. Both songs are as different as can be. It's just me and a guitar, and I can't say I like one more than the other, but I hope you enjoy listening to both versions. Again thanks for subscribing. I hope you enjoy the stories and insights and don't be shy. If you have something to say please do
till next time
