A Relatively Morbid, but Somewhat Poignant, Birthday Song

It’s my birthday today, and decades of having to piggy back on Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, and Mardi Gras cultivated a rather peculiar attitude in me, leading to this song. Actually, the song is quite old; but, today I had a creative flash and decided to make a video, which features the Old Baby version of my visage.

Song: Making a Living

I’ve been working on this song rather than processing my open mic videos (two shows in the backlog, one of which features a misguided attempt to play my piano arrangement of Redneck Vacation. Sometimes things don’t work out, but I do plan on sharing it soon.). At any rate, here is “Making a Living,” my first song of 2019. It is written for my daughter, who is 20 and feeling angsty about being an adult.
