This bouncy little groove brings the 2020 50/90 Challenge to a close. I end with 51 songs written in 88(?) days. I’ve only finished this challenge once before, in 2014. That year I stopped at 50 songs but I got there with a lot more time to spare.

I would say that I was planning on taking a break for a few days before figuring out what the next Covid-19 music project was going to be but I actually started Quarantine Tunes Vol. 2 this morning, so on to the next thing it is!

The guitars are all Gibson ES-335 into a Klon KTR into a Malaise Forever Black Lives Matter into both a Vox AC15 and a Fender Bassbreaker 15. The rhythm guitar threw in an MXR Phase 90 for good measure.

there is no rational point to it
one final thought before you submit
now raise your glass as you recommit
guilty as charged but you still acquit

Verse 1 & 3
I heard you say it
I know you think it
I know you feel it
I know you

Bridge 1
I saw your face in that moment
and there was so much hate
I’d ask you kindly to comment
but you megotiate

Verse 2
Those wheels are turning
I smell them burning
the mental churning
It must hurt

Bridge 2
you’re like a bug on a whindshield
you’re smashed to smithereens
you cannot break through the forcefield
we’re stuck with you for good.
