I wrote this as an exercise so I’m not going to claim all the psychological baggage that gets automatically added. I wanted to go back and forth from D minor and D major and use the major to add a bit of a happier feeling to a song about being glad that someone is out of my life. I have to say that it wasn’t really about anyone, specifically, but there’s always some underlying, subliminal stuff that we can’t help but add.
I recorded a few songs on a park bench in Buenos Aires and this was one good take save for the dog barking but that’s good stuff; I brought it back from the archive to help me get a good sense of my music again and get back in the groove and write and perform more. I don’t know that I’ll be performing anywhere in public, but I do plan to record some songs and sets of songs and post them.
Hope you enjoy!
