Talk About It

Oct 29, 2023 | Music, Songs | 1 comment

This is a song about six words. “I don’t talk about it much.” Those words occurred to me one day, along with something similar to the melody and rhythm that define the chorus, and I recorded them onto my phone. That happened well over two years ago.
Over the last couple of years I’d consider what to do with those words. What didn’t I talk about much? Why didn’t I talk about it? What’s interesting about not taking about it?

The song itself took shape over the last 3 months. It went a number of different directions, both musically and lyrically, but ended with what you can hear here.
It’s me singing and I’m also playing guitar. The guitar isn’t dominant (I’m not a fabulous player) but is the driver of the rhythm – perhaps even more than the bass and drums.

    Those 6 words make me remember Dad…he didn’t talk about the war much.
