If I had the stones to do it, I would write "amateur songwriter" on my income tax filing. But I don't have the stones - which probably explains why my songwriter status is "amateur" instead of "professional" or "stupid rich". So in an attempt to find a twist on my regular creativity outlet I came up with the idea to ask my friends which song they'd like to hear covered. From their list I will pick 1-2 songs a month (depending on how busy/lazy I am). By asking friends, I'd be grabbing from a pool of songs I wouldn't normally think of covering. There would be no rules. TV Show theme song? Sure. Cornball ballad in Spanish? Bring it. But the trade-off is that I do it however I want to. There is a very real possibility that it comes out unrecognizable. Know that before you get too excited. Or maybe that's what excites you and you just crapped your pants because you're so excited. Me too. Let's do this.
Suggest a song. Use my email at the top of the page or suggest one in the comments section. Selections are announced on the first of each month.
