Meets Minimum

I needed to keep the streak alive.

15 years of RPM.

But life has been in the way. Considerably. It’s not worth getting into, but music is currently so far down the priority list it’s not even funny.

But I found time on the 28th to write and record a song in less than an hour. And it sounds like it. But, like the lyrics say, it meets the minimum for submission.

So there’s that.

Just when you thought I’d gone away
I pop back up, at least for a day
To play my song
And you can sing along
If you want to

I couldn’t let the streak end
It’s up to fifteen years
Now my friend
So here’s a simple song
And you can sing along
If you want to

Meet the minimum for submission
Meet the minimum for submission
Meet the minimum for submission
It lets me call myself
An RPM 24 musician

Even a song like this can have a bridge
But sometimes all that rhymes is a phrase like “Flying Midge”
That doesn’t sound right, it has to be wrong
But that’s what you get when you have five minutes to write a song

So here’s my song
And you can sing along
If you want to

Meet the minimum for submission
Meet the minimum for submission
This meets the minimum for submission
And it lets me call myself
An RPM 24 musician

This is brilliant. Meta, but brilliant, nevertheless. Great, clean sound too. A simple arrangement of acoustic guitar and vocal can work so well.

Well, now. This is OUTSTANDING. It seems like this was the year for "get one song done to keep the streak alive." A damn good little track. Yeah. Fifteen years. Pretty amazing, my friend.
