I went back and worked on this song. I kept only the original horn sections. I like it now. It is a combination of silliness and sincerity. I am really fascinated with the question of where does music come from? For me, not being a craftsman, it feels like I have an antenna that just sort of picks up different signals. I could not sit down and write this song by paper and pen. Many time it starts with a guitar strum and chord progression. Lately the arthritis in my hands, including the thumb joint, make it nearly impossible to grasp the guitar and play a chord. Got a date with a hand surgeon. We will see what he has to say. I might have to learn a different instrument (I never did learn the guitar!). Maybe it will lead to other genres of music!
I hope 2021 is year of peace and joy for you.
