If I had to pick one song to call the best song created in the last 20 years, I'd have to pick the song I cover here, Steady as she Goes by the Raconteurs. I write about their origins in the YT desc., but I'll repeat what I concluded there: I didn't do it justice. I don't think I ever could. That said, I am pleased I finally learned how to play it.
I'm way behind on what's happening here - been struggling with bad allergies much of this week and not uking much. I'm making up for it today!
Here's an original "thank you" song, written for a long-ago Seasons theme. The title "Thank You for Flying with Us" is a diversion - the song isn't really about thanks or gratitude - but it still counts, right?
This used to always get laughs, but it didn't at all today, nor did my other original (to be posted shortly on 615). Some days the audience is with you ... other days, you just pretend that they are and give 'em what you got regardless. It's all in good fun.
A Sunday contribution from your humble host. All were another southern California punk band formed by three members of the Descendents, when the Descendents lead singer Milo Ackerman left the band to pursue a graduate degree in biochemistry. This was a minor hit off the groups second album.
I don’t love the way I sound here, I’ve been battling a head cold or allergies or something all week, but I wanted to play something and it occurred to me that this song, which I worked on for a different recent season, also fit this theme.
Thanks to Ralf and Sabine for their late run contributions but alas, as the cockerel crows on Monday morning here in central California, the time has come for this Season to break up and go its separate ways in search of new creative endeavors. Like Joo’s Season 615, which is going strong.
No prizes this week, other than the gratitude of your Season 614 host. Thanks to all of you - without your seemingly collective bottomless well of creativity, energy, and generosity, there would be no more Seasons.
Now I am off to puzzle through Joo’s thought experiment and come up with a song that fits. Thanks again for a wonderful season.
