Pete Seeger left us on Monday at the age of 94. He led a pretty amazing life which I didn’t attempt to capture in my song. I just wanted to do a little tribute to him. There is so much falsetto in this song I probably should have named it, “Crying For Pete Seeger” (lol). But that’s what came out. I got home Tuesday from doing a show in Minnesota and decided Thursday to write this song. So… as I’m singing it I’m thinking, “Oh, is that how it goes!?”
It’s a serious song this week. I’ve been doing some stand-up comedy shows recently and I guess I tend to write more serious songs when I’m doing comedy. Ironic. Maybe I don’t need the humor outlet as much when I’m performing. I’ll probably be back to a lighter song next week.
Thanks Pete for all your thoughts and music.
