Songwriting Days 23 & 24: Two in One (Again)

YESTERDAY’S PROMPT, which I didn’t have a chance to write, was to learn any song you want again.  Simple enough.

TODAY’S PROMPT: Learn a song you don’t actually like that much.

Who knows? Maybe you’ll like it after you will learn it?  The real challenge would be to improve the song with arrangement choices, but you could just learn it because it’s nice to have something harmless to make fun of (as long as you don’t mock it in front of it’s writer, you should be okay…)

TODAY’S SONG: Apple Blossom

This is my favorite White Stripes song, found on my favorite of their albums: De Stijl.  One thing I love about the White Stripes is how simple their songs are, especially the early ones, and this is a good example of that.  I also love how coy their lyrics are in contrast to their enormous sound.

Two people making a lot of noise: yes.

Two people from DETROIT making a lot of noise: yessss.
