A Valentine’s Day Song

So I’ve been working on a song for Valentine’s Day. This is a pretty big Valentine’s Day this year. It doesn’t often fall on a Saturday, plus with the whole Fifty Shades phenomenon going on should be lots of fun for couples.

It’s called “On Valentine’s Day You Don’t Get No Say”.

I think it’s pretty good, kind of a love song, country western kind of tune, you know, from the guy’s perspective.  This is just a draft. Let me know what you think!

I have to give some credit to Ross Murray at Drinking Tips for Teens for a little inspiration on this whole topic with his recent, very funny post about Valentine’s Day and Fifty Shades.

You can and should go read it here!

Mama’s Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Bloggers

Everyone’s favorite blogger, Darla of She’s a Maineiac wrote this piece recently:

Read it here:  Mama’s Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Bloggers

It inspired me and I thought maybe the lyrics to this song needed to be written… you know… ’cause I’m a blogger… so here it is:

If you’d like to sing along…

Mama’s, don’t let your babies grow up to be bloggers
Don’t let ‘em write stories for virtual friends
Help ‘em to realize that blog never ends

Mama’s, don’t let your babies grow up to be bloggers
Their always alone, always on their I-Phone
Even with people they love

Bloggers ain’t easy to love ‘cause they’re never around
Locked in their office pretendin’ to be so profound
But their mostly on Facebook and checking their stats page
For hours and hours every day
And if you don’t understand ‘em, well you don’t need to worry
Because most of ‘em just fade away

Mama’s, don’t let your babies grow up to be bloggers
Don’t let ‘em write stories for virtual friends
Help ‘em to realize that blog never ends

Mama’s, don’t let your babies grow up to be bloggers
They’re always alone, always on their I-Phone
Even with people they love

Bloggers like posting their recipes and old family photos
Stories ‘bout children and travelin’ and psycho ex-boyfriends
And them that don’t understand the blogger’s obsession
to write when you got nothin’ to say
They ain’t wrong, they’re just needy and they’re pride won’t let ‘em
stop writing those words every day

Mama’s, don’t let your babies grow up to be bloggers
Don’t let ‘em write stories for virtual friends
Help ‘em to realize that blog never ends

Mama’s, don’t let your babies grow up to be bloggers
They’re always alone, always on their I-Phone
Even with people they love

They’re always alone, always on that I-Phone
Even with people they love

As Long As You’re With Me v.3.0

Sorry to bombard you with yet another version of this song, but I’ve been fiddling around with some very cool home recording software, recorded the song, added some harmonies and this is what I came up with:

It’s not ready for iTunes,  but I think it sounds pretty good.  It’s hosted on a website called Groove Shark so hopefully the link works.

Anyway, thanks for listening!  One of these days I’ll get back to serious blogging.
