Vibrate


 

 

After an impromptu performance the other night, a friend of mine asked me about the song “vibrate“, so I figured today’s post would be about that song. I wrote it back in 2003 but I didn’t actually put it out until 2007 on the experimental album “60mhz“. A lot of my songs, and this one possibly most of all, bear metaphorical ties to other parts of my life. Vibrate is the metaphoric comparison of music to a woman. Lines like “…the way your bass is naturally round,” ” I’d like to know your crescendos,” and “plenty of soul coursing through your tablature” are all paeans to both my love and passion of music and my love ( and sometimes lust) for women. I’m fascinated by music, the body of work, what goes through the mind of the writers, musicians and producers, and the soul of a piece. Likewise I’m fascinated by women, their complicated imaginative minds, their various, soft, supple and  appealing forms, and their warm, strong, loving souls. What can I say… I love (ahem) metaphors,

Follow the light…
