The Gospel Truth

I have a certain ambivalence about this tune. It is So. Freaking. Happy.

And happy can easily be trite.

I will let you, dear listener, decide if this little bonbon of a tune is happy, trite, or both. (Or neither?)

That’s the thing about creativity. You need to stay open as ideas come to you. If you don’t you’ll find yourself writing the same song over and over again. (Yes, Keith Getty and Mumford & Sons, I’m looking at you!) Certainly, there are a lot of ideas that I don’t end up using or that die on the vine. But I’d rather develop three ideas and see which one produces good fruit than cut ideas off at the root because they don’t fit a particular agenda. Play the song a few times for an audience and it will sort itself out.
