Think About Your Troubles

I’ve been playing my ukulele a lot lately, and doing some writing on it too, which is an unusual thing, as I’m pretty much a ‘sit down at the piano and plunk out chords’ kind of songwriter. So to learn chord progressions and then try to write melodies for them is a different way of going about things, and different is pretty much always a good thing for creativity. I’ll likely post an original song next week, as I think it’s polished enough to put out there. But for now I felt like laying down this Harry Nilsson song that is as lovely a bit of songwriting as I’ve ever heard. It’s simple, and heartfelt, and it circles around on itself in just the best way. See if you don’t agree.
