A lot of people all like to talk about being free. How many really are doing it? I remember a couple of years ago I wrote a song with a co-writer called What Owns Me. That song was about how chasing your dream can end up owning you and you become a slave. What a weird concept right. It happens every day in America – the land of the free. We’re not so free any more, though that’s beside the point.
I think the price of freedom is the ability to make a choice. To me I’m finding a lot of people don’t like to make a choice. Then they leave things to the last second and feel they’re pressured to make a choice. Even if they don’t make a choice, they’ve made one.
Today’s song by AudioBodies came to my attention recently and I’m in the midst of a very freeing time for myself. Shedding a lot of ‘dead weight’ in my life so to speak. Which means I’m feeling quite free. I really like the slightly out of tune mandolin riff. It’s got a very vibey feel that I’m diggin. It doesn’t hurt that the vocals are really relaxed and smooth in their delivery. Then slowly things get added to be spice inside the arrangement. Plus I really like the name of the group, Audiobodies.
It’s got a simplistic nature to it and I’m really enjoying it. I can easily envision this as a tune to be played around at a BBQ or a campfire or any old group of good friends.
Go get the song and have a free day for yourself!
