How sad is it when you make a plan to stop taking work beyond a certain time frame in a day so you can be a bit more human and then you end up continuing to work anyway? That’s exactly the spot I’ve put myself in. I wonder. I know I was talking to a couple of other friends who were talking about the exact same thing prior to the New Year, and now that it’s here some of them are doing the same thing. Odd.
I really want to make a concerted effort to interact more with the people I know, and do so away from a work environment. Why is it so hard to get away from it? How did I become so engrained in the work-a-holic mess? Anyone that thinks a musician doesn’t work their ass off to be a full-time musician is sorely mistaken.
Thus in an effort to get back to other needed things I will leave you with today’s tune and a couple of points of good news for the music industry in general…
First 2008 saw an increase in music sales! Woo hoo. That’s a great thing. 2nd, iTunes surpassed WalMart to become the top music retailer in America. That’s pretty darn amazing as well. Along with Apple’s announcement of getting rid of DRM, and some flexible pricing, that should help the idea of digital music sales take off. Don’t ya think.
Come Tomorrow by Luke Jackson is what you’re hearing right now. It’s got a straight away white bread from the heartland type of feel. Not venturing to far out of the box. It’s carrying the sentiment that I have right now in the title. I’m pushing to get a lot of stuff done, and then I’ll get even more done tomorrow.
I can say that I’d likely hear this song as part of a montage in some sort of movie that might star someone like Owen and/or Luke Wilson. One of those quirky type movies where the characters are going thru something that changes their lives. That’s a great use for a song like this. A positive type of message with a driving force on it. Not a lot of subtle feel here, more of BAM here we are, take or leave it.
Enjoy your day, get something accomplished! I know I finished all the Dutch lessons I had yesterday. I feel like I’ve got to go find a few more. Come tomorrow I’ll get to the library and ask if they have the other half.
