Song in Your Box, Week Thirty-Five

(me and my new friend Rachel-my work bff)

Week Thirty-Five, "Sexual Chocolate"

I am starting to realize what they mean when they say New York is the city that never sleeps. I feel like I'm wasting time when I sleep-I could be getting so much stuff done:)

But there is definitely an energy to this city that is both exhilarating and overwhelming. I am trying to find the sweet balance between the two.

This week is a song I wrote with my guitar teacher and friendย Tim Shipman, as an exercise. It's a very rough version which I debated putting up but I've come to the conclusion that in a project where I'm writing a song a week (and also doing a million other things), sometimes the quality will not be 100%. It's a lesson in life too. Not to wait until things are "perfect" because you'll be waiting forever. And really that was the reason I started this project. I have plans to clean it up, and get the highest of qualities so just you wait!:)

So, Tim and I wrote a song together. It was awesome because as an exercise we didn't pour over it for hours. The idea was to pick a subject, pick some chords, and write a song. Easy Peasy, no big deal.

My roommate Ambyr (shout out!:) was there that day, and so we were like "Ambyr-give us a topic". To which she replied "Sex and Chocolate". Thanks a lot Ambyr! A song about sex and chocolate. Okay, here we go!

I actually think it came out pretty well considering it was written within one lesson and is about sex and chocolate. It of course made me think of "Coming to America" and the band whose name was sexual chocolate. Anyone remember that? Bueller? Anyway, it's hilarious and so I had to name the song that.

I love doing things that are different. If any of you has an idea for a song you want me to write, shout it out! I have a few songs I'm co-writing with people that I LOVE and I can't wait to share them. Soon, my loves!:)

Here it is: Sexual Chocolate

love,
