While I was working on a song for Colin a few days ago, I had an idea for a little ditty: “I’m Down” (MP3). It was more a way for me to work out some jazz harmonies rather than my personal issues. In fact, it was a lovely afternoon, and I was having a little fun playing at being miserable, like Berk Breathed years before me:
And the Beatles and Adrian Belew years before that:
I’m pretty sure I won’t be displacing Breathed, the Beatles, or Belew with my little paean to misery.
