It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

Friday, April 16, 2004

Thursday's normally the night when John comes over and we work on my songs. But last night, he was at one of the final rehearsals for "Bye Bye Birdie". He's playing trumpet in the pit orchestra for a community theatre production of it out in Tooele.

So, last night, I actually ended up working on other people's songs. First off, an old friend named LaDena had sent me a song to collaborate/arrange/record and we worked it through, figured out the chord progressions. There were some trickynesses with the form and the timing which we might have worked out, too. But it's going to be a fun tune. It's called "The Crack of the Wind".

She lives in Nevada, so we were actually doing that by phone!

Then, Andy came over with a song idea based on that "the least of these, my brethren" verse. He'd basically created it with the melody to another song in mind. So, we had to rework the melody. But other than that, it's a hot song. We worked up a chorus. Then he took me through the other songs he'd written recently. Just a fun time.

It was a kind of relaxing night.
