Do You Love Me or Should I Let You Go? -- Yes, you love to show me off to your friends, but do you really love me? As my Wife notes, not all my songs are autobiographical. I wrote this song and enjoyed singing it, but then had a studio in Nashville do a full production cover, including vocals, of it and released it as a single. This is a re-master to match my current music and work process and with my own vocals.
Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes - Sometimes a couple gets passionate before they get to be an every-day couple. This song was actually based on a running gag at the Cafe Bohemia acoustic jam one evening. One player had a slice of pie as a Zoom background, and another player kept making a running joke of wanting meatloaf & mashed potatoes instead of pie. I turned it into a love song metaphor and sang it the next week.
Some Days, This is All You Get - Songwriter blues -- some days the Muse won't inspire and you just get a blank sheet of paper. This song was actually based on an Instagram post by songwriter Terry Klein. I really thought and offered for him to make a song of it, or to co-write, but he graciously told me to run with it. His post was of a blank sheet of paper and a pen with the title "Some days, this is all you get".
