Listening to rock 101, as I usually do, this morning and Greg Kretschmar of The Morning Buzz,decided to play some music from Asia, not the country of but pop band from the 80's, you will not see me say rock band, Asia not rock and roll.In the morning show they play some old classics on occasion as a through back for good memories. Greg apparently likes Asia as when he was talking about the band before playing the song I thought to my self "there's no way he is going to play that song on the radio." (I forget the song's name and looked up Asia on YouTube for a short time to try to find the song to reference but just couldn't bare the music and stopped looking). Well he played it...that's when me and 30% of his morning listeners decided to change the channel. He made a good case for program directors no matter how popular you are on radio. Turns out I'm glad I did turn the station. I road the radio stations up until I hit a song I liked. The song wasBananas by Gwen Stafani, major league POP song but it reminded me about driving in my red 1996 Chevy Barrera, I owned when the song came out with my 3 daughter. We would turn up that song on the radio and sing as loud as we could while cruising around. Those times were some of the best times of my life, hanging with my girls. Ya know what? That song was good then and still good today. As some say "standing the test of time."

By the way Kay, in my song Better Looking Lone, Bettie Gill is you, I extracted that verse from your photo on Facebook the one where your laying on the bed with your legs spread (cloths on). "Betty Gill she such a freak, laying there and looking kind neat ya," Gill came from the stadium I live near in Manchester NH, Bettie is reference to Bettie Pagepersonally I have always admired Bettie Page because she show cased what people liked in the 1950's which was taboo at the time. In that same song are the verses, I don't know and I don't care, these are from my daughters: Jaxx and Stephanie (the princess of the family), Jaclyn is always saying "IDK" or "I don't know" on Facebook, that's all i here from her,I could ask her "what day is it?" and the reply will be "I don't know." Princess is always telling me "I don't care."( i know she does care but she likes saying that to me). In "Better looking Lone " that's where I got those lyrics from.I do my best to get my lyrics from social media or the internet in one form or another and in the future I will better explain where the lyrics come from. I believe it makes a song 10 times more interesting when you know where it came from. 2 more coming out by 2nd week in October with full explanation on where the lyrics came from. I haven't been doing it because the first 4 songs have been EP status(4 to 6 songs) and for psychological reasons I needed to exit EP status in which I will be doing in October and entering LP status.Song writing is difficult and many people don't realize it until they sit down and try to write a song. The first 9 songs that I plan to do are recent or fresh songs, I have many more that I have written but not applied guitar too and are currently only lyrics. Later, stay tuned
