This album is definitely my favorite so far. If you listen to it, you'll know me pretty well.
"Ode to Autumn" is a folky pop song that is easy to get lost in. It started out as a poem, but i decided i liked it too much to leave it that way. I wrote it when I noticed the ridiculous amount of leaves I had in my yard that needed raking. :P I just realized how easy it is to be inspired when you aren't trying to be inspired. A leaf fell. I wrote as fast as I could; and rhymed with no strategy. It turned out to be my favorite.
"The Train Song" and "Well Played Card": about an angry, heartbroken girl..hephmm...that let her frustration out in, not one (mind you), but TWO songs. ;)
Then there is "Song for A Valentine". This song is so sweet for one reason: it was written for an 81 year old man's wife for Valentines Day. He asked me to write his lovely wife a song, and sing it to her (February 14) in a local bookstore. So we called each other back and forth and he told me about their "courting" years. And their marriage of 58 years. "Song for A Valentine" was the result.
This album is very sarcastic, I won't lie. But not in it's entirety. It is the perfect album to listen to going into or getting out of a relationship. Or when you are simply feeling poetic. If nothing else, it will give you a chuckle and an urge to snap your fingers.
