Evoking a response

fascinating... the love song got me more of a "response" than any other song I've put out there. I got more emails back from people but I also, for the first time, had several people ask to be taken off the mailing list. once again, fascinating... why would they ask now to be be taken off the email list? is it because it was a love song this month? is it because I've been doing this for four months now and don't seem to be going away?! Is it just a coincidence?

but as I said I also got more positive responses for this one than any other song. and next month I still plan on putting out a "horrible" noise piece. ;-)

The Pudge Song of the Month for June

Hello Friends,

Here are the links for the June Pudge Song Of The Month.

This month's song is a "nice" song. In fact it's a love song! "Je T'Aime"

June 16th is my 20th wedding anniversary. wow... So I felt inspired to
write a love song about my lovely wife Julia. I know love songs aren't
"cool" but the sample just inspired me. I promise that next month's song
will be more "noisy". In the meantime I hope you enjoy this month's

Remember to also check out the Pudge Song Of The Month Blog. I've been
trying to keep it updated at least once a week.

This month's song is based on a sampled loop from the classic Serge
Gainsbourg song "Je t'aime... moi non plus". If you would like a chuckle
or two check out the Wikipedia entry on Mr. Gainsbourg. He led a
fascinating life!

As always if you would like to be taken off the email list just send me a



Gotta roll ahead...

I updated all the web pages yesterday and sent out the email this morning. "Je T'Aime" is now live and on the web!

oh yeah... I should do like I did last month and put up a posting about it on the blog. I'll do that next.

It hit me this morning that I can't slack this month. I'll be going out of town for almost a week at the end of June with Julia. We're going to SF to have the honeymoon we didn't have when we got married because we couldn't afford it. (although our dream was to go to Spain when we got married)

So I've gotta get right on it, figure out what song is going to be next month's song, and do it. Part of the problem is that I've gotta figure out what song to do for next month. I had the first few months figured out. I know what I want to do in October (Halloween) and December (Christmas) but I don't have the rest of the year figured out. That's going to be my next task. Sit down and re-listen to the stuff I've got in "the can", and plot out the rest of the year.

A day or two late

So I was listening to the new song for June. There is one line in it that kind of bugs me and I thought of a better line to put in its place. So I'm going to re-record the vocals one more time to get it right. I'm considering the songs that I put out there as the final versions. That is one of the whole points of this thing. Once it's out there I don't want to make any more changes.

So tomorrow I'm going to wake up. Redo the vocal parts and put up the web pages.
