Yesterday, my wife and I walked into this place and got chatting with a dude working there.
He was telling us about and old couple who walked in cradling a baby.
Only, it wasn’t’ a baby.
It was a DOLL!
They said it was a baby, but-it t’weren’t no baby.
Another lady who worked there peaked in and said, “Oh, I thought you had a real baby there.”
Both geezers said, “It is a REAL baby.”
And they were as serious as a heart-attack this was a real baby.
Okay. I’ve heard of these human-like baby dolls they had teenagers take home and care for.
These were two seniors.
Not teenagers learning the responsibilities of bumping uglies and there’s a brand new meaning to, “Happy Father’s Day.”
The man we talked to even had pictures of the old couple coddling the doll…
They kind of creeped him out.
So, he snapped some pics just to be safe in case something weird happens to an innocent child, as he’s seen this pair around before.
Sadly, it was probably more a product of dementia than anything dangerous.
But, what’s the songwriting take away here?
Maybe you bumped uglies with your tunesmithing and your baby ain’t a baby at all.
Maybe your perspective is a little off?
Fake babies are dollies,
I’m not sure what you’d call a fake song.
Whatever it is, you don’t want to go around coochy-cooing its chin expecting smiles from everyone.
When it ain’t a living breathing song.
Get yourself ten different sources: pro writer, fellow songwriters, group feedback, audience, or anyone who will give an honest looksee.
Let them tell you if your tune is breathing or not.
Probably want to avoid fam.
Fam and friends have a hard time being objective.
Either way you can bump beauties with your songwriting and produce some cool tunes.
And Tune Booster helps you out.
Until then… keep writing from the heart.
