My Best Friend

Click: My Best Friend

You can never have too many best friends. This demo from a couple years ago has lyrics by Michael Feldman, he’s definitely one of mine. If this lyric was the only thing I ever got from him, he would still qualify. There is a sense of mystery to this song that I enjoy—just who are we singing about? Answering that question would be a mistake. Songs are not poetry, they’re not even journalism, they’re just things we sing, whether we get them or not. Me knowing the back story of a tune is not terribly relevant—how it sounds is. Do the words roll off the tongue? Do they seem intriguing in some way? On the musical side, I put a funny little figure, slightly dissonant, between verses in this song. It’s me trying to be Randy Newman. If he ever moves up to being the Boss, I’m ready.
