Hey uh, emmyc I made you a birthday song.
Cause I know you like ‘em written composed and recorded in 2 hrs or less.
My dearest Emmy I’ve been told
You’re turning 25 Years Old
And your professed preference has me miffed
I know you dislike pageantry
But I feel I’d be an absentee
If I didn’t find for you the world’s most ostentatious gift
I thought about
a watering can
a sputtering van
a poster of a toaster or a catamaran
but I settled on a solid gold statue of Shania Twain
Maybe the Philosopher’s Stone
some awful cologne
a motor boat or motorola mobile phone
but no, I got for you a solid gold Statue of Shania Twain
I know you said you needed a horse
Or a lawyer for your divorce
But I realized that of course
A gilded country singer’s bust is what you meant by that
So I didn’t buy you new kicks
Or a bag of wet ticks
But it won’t be long until you’re turning twenty six
And I can give you a brass figurine of Stevie Nicks
But for now it’s a solid gold statue of Shania Twain
And a stale baguette
And a hug!
I haven’t posted any mixes in a while so here’s compensation:

GUYS WHAT’S MY TIME
"You will relish his frank lyricism." —Rolling Stone Magazine
Droppin’ it on Valentine’s Eve. So. Cover your ears if you like Ms. Spears.
I just watched one of my old favorite Steve Martin films, “All of Me,” and had to do a quick little rendition of the eponymous song.
Let’s hear it for the brass section!
I tried to include at least one thing from each month.
This coming year it’ll be 3 a month or I’m firing myself.
