The Tender Zone

Click: The Tender Zone

Not all posts are created equal. Take tonight’s song for instance. I can assure you that the amount effort that went into creating this little soul workout, which appeared on my first solo CD Quiver, was much greater than the amount spent writing today’s post and hurriedly scribbling the toon that goes with it. Time constraints. But I have made this commitment 253 days in a row now and I sure ain’t gonna let you down… yet. The song reflects my life-long obsession with soul music and has a sequence of chords that I think are quite unique. It is in the key of A Major and uses eight different dominant seventh chords in a pretty original sequence. (Sorry, got off on a tangent there, you can come back now.) It also features Mike Sieger singing the high part with his usual panache and a little rhythm hook for the lyric stolen directly from Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s classic, Wishin’ and Hopin’. There’s nothing new under the sun, but there sure are a lot of ways to combine the old stuff!
