Strange Progress

So there have been a few developments since my last post.   A couple of weeks ago, I came up with three separate lyric snippets. None of them have really been developed into a fully fleshed out thing I can add to a grouping, but they all show some promise. Working titles for the three … Read more

Back In The Black

How many variations can I make on the phrase “back in black?” I think we’ll soon find out!   Been working up a new idea with Black Squirrel over the past couple of days. In working on the lyrics earlier this week, I came up with a different verse melody that I’m now attempting to … Read more

Back In Black

After working on Stranger Days so much recently, I was happy to explore a new idea tonight.   Came up with a random couple of lines this evening. Upon hashing them out a bit in my head, I also tried Frankensteining them with Black Squirrel’s chorus and pre-choruses. For those who are unaware, Black Squirrel … Read more

The work Continues

I’m living in cloud cuckoo land when it comes to lyrics these days.   An update since I haven’t posted in awhile. After scrapping the seasonal release format, picking it up and ultimately scrapping it again, I’m not firmly focused on creating a grouping of 10 lyrical ideas. It has no name in general but … Read more

Restless Days Are Here Again

Restless Days Are Here Again has gone through a few iterations since it was written in 2020.   This latest version was put under the lens of that seasonal project I’m still working on. It would go in winter and has a folksy country sound to it in my mind. I’d also call this teen … Read more

Cross Quarters

I’m at a bit of a crossroads with the seasonal release thing.   On one hand, I’m really proud of what’s been finished so far. Autumn is kind of insane and the two pieces I’ve finished for winter are my most personal¬† about going blind. As I mentioned, this whole thing would cover that year … Read more

Best Of Me

Today was a very productive day for many lyrics.   Over the last little bit, I’ve been chipping away at some stuff that was previously shared here. It’s all part of a seasonal release idea, which is something that was actually ripped off from Weezer. There are a few differences that I’ll reveal once things … Read more

Black Squirrel (second draft)

I worked on Black Squirrel pretty extensively again this morning.   In the spirit of yesterday’s post, I thought I’d continue to document my work in progress. As evidenced below, I wasn’t kidding when writing that the first draft could change quite substantially. Now verses have an entirely different structure and some chorus lyrics have … Read more

Black Squirrel

Black Squirrel is an idea I’ve been developing for awhile now.   It’s still in an extremely embryonic stage (as evidenced by the lack of a second verse) but I thought I’d post it anyway. I might remove it at some point but if I don’t, it could end up looking totally different down the … Read more

Birthday Candles

Awhile back, I talked about a group that would focus specifically on winter 2001.   While I hadn’t committed to it fully, Weezer had also inspired exploring a seasonal release of mini lyrical groupings. Although their SZNZ EPs have featured seven songs on the first day of every season, mine would consist of five pieces … Read more
