We'll be writing more songs with different subjects, genres, genders etc.......it will be very time consuming to do this, but it's been fun so far.
Sound like a lot of fun -- and hard work.
My own project was fun. The girls were all properly flattered -- even when the songs weren't, themselves, flattering. I had made it very clear that the songs were simply using their names as starting places and were not about them. Still, a couple girls said, No, that sort of rang true.
And a couple BF's acted, let's say, proprietary
for a while after that.
I'd considered a stamped CD release -- this was back in '96 when that made a little more sense -- but I'd sort of made the project my 'return to rock' after doing various outsider/mutant pop/electronica projects. By the time I had 12 songs, I was sick of rock all over again.
(In fact, the 11th was more electronic pop and the 12th was straight lounge -- hampered by a scratch sax synth track that never got filled in by the real thing when my chosen sax player's career took off
... so, basically I only finished 11 and only 10 actually sounded like they belonged on the same album. It never went much
past sneaker-distro. But it was fun.)
