I’ve started a new thing on the Err Bear Music page. Each week or so I’ll pick one song, working though the alphabet from A to Z, and write about it a little bit. When someone plays me a new song, I am often curious about how the song came to be, what inspired it, is to autobiographical, etc. So we’ll take a spin through the alphabet and see what turns up.
As an aside, it amazes me how often I forget what inspired me to write a song. I’ve talked to other writers (including a few who wrote songs you hear on the radio) and it seems like I’m not the only person who has that problem. Worse case basis, I’ll have a resource to look to when I forget more.
