The Last Song

The latest song. The newest song. It's amazing to get to hear a new song for the first time...to be the first person besides the writer to hear it. If it's a good one, you know right away, and if it's a great one, you know soon after. The best songs start out great and keep getting better, as if they are being self-encouraged by each line, one after the other. They steamroll into a solo or a chorus, then explode, then build up again to a slightly less frenzied level than the peak.

My wife just played me one of those songs. I actually heard the finished record in my head as she was running it down. I now have a page of notes about how to cut it.

I can't wait.
