Hey, I'm On You Tube!

Updated: Aug 31, 2021

Every so often, I get a suprise from my favorite website, YouTube. Little did I know when I registered my CD, Bait & Switch, with Deezer that they'd do these little videos of my songs with the CD cover shown.

So you could image my surprise when I opened up my YouTube account and found I gave them authorization to proliferate my music out on the web. Cool!

If you've not heard, "Like I Du", now is your chance. But let me explain.

I wrote the tune many years ago, while I was still with "regular JOE 2.0". At the time, I was really struggling with my vocals. Not only did I hate my voice, but I didn't really know how to write a song, either. I put many versions of the track down. And being dissatisfied with every version, I gave up on the song, and sent it over to Stu Epps to produce and sing.

When I got the song back, I thought he did a good job. While I still wasn't happy, Stu did teach me by way of demonstration what I was looking for. So, I re-wrote the tune to speak more towards that voodoo intuition thing (I Put A Spell On You), rather than the addiction thing (Hooked On A Feeling). And it worked. I also re-wrote the title, put in a little breakdown, a bass and drums only part, and re-registered the track under new copyright.

But other than that, it's the same song you'll find in my old archives. The only difference is I now consider the song completed.

Music Industry Professionals who've heard it give it mixed reviews. Some find it driving and addictive others find it derivative and repetitive. Really, I don't write for MIP's. If I did, I'm sure I'd just copy the latest trends and make off with the goods. Instead, I prefer to do my own thing with the hope that you, my fans, will like where I'm taking you.

Thanks for reading my blog.

Love & Rockets,

Big aspirations don't start from nothing. They are born on the wings of frustration. And those wings, if you trust why they sprouted, can propel you to change the world. But it won't happen over night

I knew I didn't have enough money to finish the whole album. In fact, I was crushed when I looked at my finances and realized Hook, Line & Sinker wouldn't get completed in one fell swoop. Not knowing
