Before February, Monty and I were joking about how we joined 11 years ago. I said "we go to Eleven!".
Well, it took us all month to come back to our first song idea... but here it is. Monty on instruments via Band In A Box.. he sent it on the 27th... and I got some the lyric ideas on the last night. How many "11" references can you catch in the last two verses? 😁
Thank you so much Devin! It was a real treat to listen to this first thing this morning. Ya gotta love it. It's obviously a simple blues progression but I spent the most time farting around with the walk-up and walk-down at the end of the verses which ended up being..
A7 A7/Bb D6/B D7/C
C#m7 Cm7 Bm7 E7sus
2008. Monty and I hit this town
The vibe was so great, we just had to hang around
Raised us a few beers eh buddy?
Man laid a lotta tunes down
Thanks for saving my seat friend, looks like, we've got time, for one last round
Watching people come and go, they do as they choose
Every year's full of winners, and ya, couple lose
We raise a glass to them all when we singing these blues
May you find your pot of gold people
Or at least, may you find the muse
It's been 11 years, since they first let us in
It'll be 11 months, until this party starts again
In the meantime people, keep your sodium low
Watch that first moon landing
I got you some anniversary guitar picks
Hope you like the tin
Count Rugen on them drums, he's never dropped a stick
Nigel Trufnel on guitar, man, that amp is trick!
Monty on the keys, and I'm holding the mic
Jane Ives on that saxophone
She's playing for all the Eggos tonight
