Today’s episode is a song from my “50 songs in 50 weeks” series.
This is one of my first songs I ever wrote, written back when I was 14. It's about a time when I went to a school dance and the girl I went with pretty much ignored me the whole time so I was pretty bummed. They said, write what you know, don't they. Come I was I was 14.
I tried to copy a little bit the style of Dave Matthews Band, particularly the song, "Jimi Thing."
I decided to just keep the production sparse and just do an acoustic guitar and a single vocal. Honestly, I'm a little embarrass by this one because it's kind of corny song but I felt like sharing something the represented my early songwriting.
