same 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.
