churches and summer camps and clubs and schools people dragged me around wanting me to play whatever and I never knew the names of songs.
let me hear the song and i’ll play it for you if I must but I won’t know the name of it.
sometimes i’d get harassed and teased when I didn’t know the name of a song.
“I don’t like playing other peoples music”
became my childhood phrase.
it didn’t stop anybody from trying.
sometimes I would say “sing it to me and maybe I can figure it out”.
that would stop them.
