Songs are over-rated
« on: December 31, 2010, 12:22:17 am »

Just wanted to say it; seemed like a good place to do it.

Happy new year.

I'll rate that comment an "85" because it has a good beat and is easy to dance to.

Dan, Just so I'm clear as I move forward, where exactly do you stand on a "ditty"?  No, not P-Ditty.

I don't think a "jam" is a song, and I know a "movement" isn't one, but the ditty has me in a quandary.

Music is over rated. Most of the best stuff has been written, most of the new stuff is unadulterated crap.

There. I said it. Now, have fun recording it.

Calling things over-rated is over-rated.
