What’s in a name?
So, I was writing a song last week (as usual), and I was really happy with it! …Until I realized it didn’t have a title yet. I reassured myself: “No biggie! I’ll just come up with one like I always do! Not a problem at all.”
Skip ahead one hour later and I’m a frustrated, teenage mess. Usually it takes less than five minutes to come up with a title, but unfortunately this song was not set up for a title at all.
…So I sat back and took a break; texted, facebooked and all that good stuff. I proceeded to tell (text) my friend Billy that I was having trouble thinking of a title for this great new song. Here’s a little re-creation of the conversation for you: (not all exact quotes)
Billy: “So what’s up?”
Me: “I just wrote a new song :)”
Billy: “Oh cools! What’s it called?”
Me: “Not sure yet actually. It’s kinda weird. I usually pick one pretty fast.”
Billy: “Huh. You should name it ‘billy named this song’”
Me: “I think yes! But what did Billy name it is the question here.”
Billy: “He named it steve.”
And so, “Steve” was born! My friends never fail to keep my life interesting. You know, interesting like telling a crowd of people that “this next song is called ‘Steve’.”
I hope you guys enjoy the video, I also have a few other videos up on YouTube if you ever want to check them out! Keep rockin’ and have a great rest of the week.
Thanks Billy for the awesome song name! I don’t know what I would have done without you, bro.
My guitar is a little bit out of tune
But that’s the way I like it
Cuz nobody’s perfect
I don’t know about you
If you’re the type of mind
That’s a little too precise
I gave up trying to be better than
I am in love with my own life again
I’ve got so many years ahead of me
So why should I worry?
Watch and you’ll see
When I’m down I just sing
I know that everything’s
Gonna be alright
I gave up trying to plan out the life
I’ll live for the day
Breathing in as things will come my way
