My Chemical Brain

May 19, 2009 5:05 PM

I don’t know crap about this topic but it hasn’t stopped me from having my interest piqued. Specifically, I’m talking about brain chemistry. Both the mechanics of it and the way we manipulate what those mechanics do these days are super interesting. Even more amazing to me is how people’s emotions (usually negative emotions) can be a simple result of a chemical imbalance in their brain. Wow. I realize the drugs we have today are both amazing relative to nothing and very blunt instruments relative to what we’ll have down the road. And while I haven’t tried any of them, I sometimes wonder what people did before they existed. Mostly suffered I suppose. :|

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a track here. That’s not because I haven’t been writing music. There are several songs in the queue and this song has been mostly written and recorded for months. I think it’s just that I’m getting pickier with each song I put out so it’s harder to get it right. (Well, harder to get it as right as I am capable of getting it.) This song isn’t quite happy enough, but it reminds me of something I’d hear in an Apple commercial. So… hey, Apple, how about licensing this. I’ll rewrite the lyrics. Seriously. Whatever you want. I have no shame. Back to the song though… not to pat myself on the back, but I am particularly fond of the way the bridge/intro makes a surprise cameo appearance in the last rendition of the chorus at the end of the song. It makes me happy when I hear it.

Beautiful vocal and very clear production. Nice warm poppy feel to the piano. And super-catchy. Well done!
