Unheard Songs

Google unheard songs and pages come up promising a glimpse from the vaults of the greats: Hendrix, Prince, Led Zeppelin.  How many unheard songs are written for every song that flies? What happens to the ones left behind? We all want to hear those songs.

The Song Phenomenon

The Muse.  She’s here. Just let herself in the front door and plopped down in the chair across from me. She hands a word to me, like it’s a cigarette or a martini or a star.  I place it on a note, imbed it in a chord and play it back to her tentatively, eyebrows raised in a silent ask, “Like this?  Is this okay?”  She scoffs.  Throws a hand to the ceiling and rolls her eyes.
