This Time It's Personal
Thanks TA. I've felt ambivalent about the song because it's a little close to home for me.
For what it's worth, that's what my voice sounds like when I've been crying all night (back in January, when I recorded this) and can hardly hit a
note because my throat's so tight.
I've tried rerecording it from time to time in the ensuing months to get a smoother sound, but I either choke up worse or sound flat and
So well, there it is.
I know what you mean about comments, and of course I crave them as much as the next guy.
But I also know that sometimes listeners don't have much to say. I don't see that as either good or bad.
It's more along the lines of just maybe saying to oneself "Okay, that was pretty good," or "Meh. Once was enough for me."
Or in this case, where I have a strong emotional investment in the song, a listener just may not feel comfortable saying something -- especially of a
critical nature (even though I very much encourage it in all cases, including this one).
I don't mind it, myself. It's all good.
As a musician, I just enjoy sending out the tunes and imagining who might end up listening to them.
I've heard back from people all over the world about some of my songs, and though I may not hear from everyone who listens to them, what I do hear is
enough for me.
P.S. I need to catch up on some listening myself, and not just musicasts (including a bunch of songs from Sauron), but the "regular" ATS
podcasts. I'm thrilled at how they've taken off. Now I need to listen to them!
