Two With One Blow

Here are my two new songs, finished and posted on the same day. Song number seven:

I Jump turned out to be very interesting, and it makes me want to be a better musician. Which, by something that is merely coincidence, I am attempting to do by taking a new Coursera course from the Berklee School of Music, Developing Your Musicianship. Berklee has done well by me so far, so I have high hopes.

And here, more within my musical skills, is the eighth song of the Challenge:

Although I don't think this lyric is as well-crafted as Bad New Always Comes In the Mail, I think it contains a lot of important ideas for the times we're living in. That sounds pretentious, and I don't mean it to be. But I like the fact that I've put some of these things out there in a way that relates to what most of us are experiencing right now.

The songs that are coming up, unless some other song sparks my imagination and jumps ahead as these did, are both comments on life, but from two very different angles. Should be interesting.
