Television and Smart-Kid Angst: Song-A-Week Project Weeks 13 + 14

A bit behind, but I'm catching up. Here are two songs for last and this week. As always, they're available at my Song-A-Week Project site on

The first song is actually the second one I wrote but the first I recorded. It was a quickly thrown together sort of affair. It's a song with a bit of angst... I can't come up with a pithy summary of the song, but it's directed at a kid who's got an ego but no real idea where's he's going...

The second song I'm releasing here I've been working on for the past couple of weeks -- it's called "Watching TV" and it's about wanting to sit and watch TV even when there are better things to be doing. That was the initial impulse -- I ended up really thinking of the song as a companion song to "Did I shave my legs for this?", which is, I think, a fabulous song. Except that in my song, the trick is to sympathize with the shlub sitting and watching TV, which is harder that sympathizing with the disappointed spouse.
