I'm never really sure what to write when releasing a new song into the wild... maybe a haiku?
This is my new song
I think it has potential
But is it finished?
Wow, that should totally be my new track release haiku every time! Thanks ancient Japanese lyrical forms!
Haiku stated then, here it is:
Your Eyes Sparkle When You Cry
I've been sitting on a mostly-finished version of this for quite some time now, and I decided today that it had stagnated long enough and that I'd better get the damn thing out into the world. A few tweaks and some rewrites and bam! I think it's close to finished, though I feel like it still has a lot of really nice melodic opportunities that I haven't explored yet. Maybe they'll see the light of day on a rare 7" of B-sides once I'm famous and need a few extra bucks to polish the Maserati riding mower or something. Until then though, I think this initial version is a nice exercise in ebb and flow, with some good melodies thrown in to boot. Not to mention that chest pounding 808 bass drum! The 80's never died!
As usual, comments and criticism would be very much appreciated. Enjoy!
