Staying home is not an optional challenge.

I'm not sure if I'll be in for this one with a Phlebia entry, as now I'm trying to juggle both springtime gardening stuff, kids being home, AND working on my Gift of Music entry -- but I think I said that last week and pulled something together so we'll see.

I wrote and recorded mine on the day it came out. I'm in education and was technically on spring break last week. My plan before all of this craziness started was to use spring break to work on a project that I hatched on a long run several weeks ago. I was not going to do this Songfight but the title spoke to me and quickly I was able to merge the title and my project with one song. I've played a recurring fictional character over my entire musical career and this song is an homage to that character. I wrote a couple of other tunes over the week that have not been recorded... I also got distracted by "Love In the Time Of"... so yah, Songfight seems to be in control. ha.

be well, cool people!!

Brown Word is in, trying something a bit new. I think this is somewhat more upbeat than last fight, but I dunno...

Brown Word and the Big Whine has an EP out:

That makes two of us. Phlebia: 3.33x faster and shorter than last time in a major key.

Plenty of time on my hands for once, so I'm in for this one (like a lot of others I'm guessing)

I'm fine-tuning my entry as best I can. I can't decide if the backup vocals are incongruously goofy, or the main vocal is incongruously responsible. Anyway there it is. This morning I have to fix the drums -- as best I can.
