Jutze 52 #45 – On Request

This is a bluesy rock and roll tune about ordinary things. And just in case you’re new here: This year I’m (once again) making a new 52-second song every week. The songs are often quick ideas, sketched out and recorded at the eleventh hour. The project forces me to be creative. It also keeps me playing and recording. I’m looking forward to the end of this ordeal at the end of December. This year’s run has been rather, well, forced, and I didn’t have as much time to dwell on detail, good lyrics, or strong melodies. Anyway, here’s the 12-bar blues mentioned at the beginning of this post a.k.a. a little experiment with slightly distorted vocals.

#45 On Request

Don’t talk
Don’t tell
Don’t even try to scream and yell
Don’t speak
Until you hear the beep
The answering machine ain’t ready yet

Don’t walk
Don’t run
Don’t move your feet until it’s done
Don’t go
Until the green light tells you so
The red light means you better stay where you are
