I would like to do this one in a studio with other instruments, a vocal isolation booth, an engineer, nice mics, etc. That will cost between $500 and $1000 depending on what kind of deal I can wangle with the studio and engineer. Please contribute two measly dollars ($2) if you'd like to hear this and other songs done right.
No words yet, but this one's not about me at all -- it's about showcasing Joe Bird's drumming. If you listen carefully, you'll hear wings. If you turn it way up in the fattest speakers you can find, you might get 1/10th the ribcage-rattling volume we had as we played it. It was fun.

This is one of only a handful of songs that I wrote as a teenager that I still remember by heart. I wish I had taken my own advice more often! It's a lot more meaningful to me now. Thanks, 18-year-old CharlieHipHop! Read it all
This was a total mess-up (last time I released one of these, "Free Key Stylin'," it got downloaded thousands of times -- go figure) so I threw it in the free bin. Some wires got crossed somewhere. The tracks all bled into each other. It's supposed to have this totally funky beat that ended up sounding like the drummer needed to go to the emergency room to have his stomach pumped. The guitar tracks got all syncopated and the effects didn't come out the way they sounded in the mixer.
Not sure if I love it or hate it. This should be called "Don't get too fancy 'cause you'll ruin something that's totally straightforward," but it's actually an instrumental version of the song "Rocker."
