People keep count? 5 albums of songs published/released, plus a few non-album songs on my Bandcamp page. Plus dozens of songs either 1) not recorded, or 2) not released, or 3) not completed.

Been playing since I provided musical accompaniment for the Red Sea Crossing. The one sponsored by some cat named Moses.

Have no idea how many songs I've written but plenty for sure. One of my first and most un-lauded attempts at that was called "Paramecium blues...and mine." I thought it was pretty nifty though, from the bacterial point of view: "Is that God lookin' down on me, or is just a great big eye?" 8)

Lost a lot of songs and stories in the "Catastrophe of '94" where I got drunk, decided I was a failure and burned everything I could find. I got over it. Sadly i can remember just snippet of one of my favorites from the Hollywood adventure called "Risen.'" It was based on a homeless drug addict I encountered:

"She always has her makeup on, though her lipstick's smeared some times...
She's keepin' up appearances for no one, sleepin' on the ground.
but a hunchback's not a very good pillow..."

I'm a drum player who thinks he can play guitar but I only play piano

I've been playing a long time, and the amount of songs I've wrote, a bunch

Songs written? Probably a couple dozen, mostly forgettable. I am no poet and my contribution has always been more musical. We did have a handful of songs recorded back in the 80s that would probably still stand up today. That was the "record deal missed". Young musicians in our 20s who each brought a lot of talent but couldn't get our act together.

C'est la vie.

C-Daddy. I'm like you. I've written some (very weak) lyrics but primarily I'm a "music" guy.

LOL....always love reading your writing Mike....you have as they say...a way w words! Paramecium Blues, GREAT concept, I love it. You need to find an old recording or do up a new one.

Yeah - that really hits home: "Dozens of songs not recorded."
