Eric here. I took my songs offline. Because they’re rough and most people don’t like things that aren’t polished.
Thanks a lot for listening.
Eric here. Today’s topic was Chihuahuas. I bent the rules, but the word Chihuahua is in the song like seven times, so I think that’s fine. This is the last song by the way.
Poorly recorded (some clipping toward the end), but these things happen with demos.
Day 30 - Chihuahua
This is Eric. Everyone out there is a songwriter, and the good ones are rarely the ones who are serious about it. FYI I HATE songwriting. HATE IT. I’ve hated almost every part of this stupid exercise.
Day 29 - songwriting is the cheapest lamest %#^@& thing
Eric here. Today’s suggestion came from Patrick Day, who’s probably a better songwriter than Donavan and me put together.
Day 28 - shirts v. skins
P.S.: Tumblr was down yesterday. I know you noticed.

NOTE: We reserve the right to accidentally skip ahead as whims dictate. Thanks very much for your suggestions and understanding.
Eric here. Dave from Boulder asked for “Colorado guy in love with LA girl.” This is my version of a folk song by this girl Emily Robinson who’s crazy scary good. 100 times better than I am.
ONLY 5 MORE DAYS OF THIS!!!! HELL YES!!!
Day 25 - LA Girl
Eric here. Mark Mauldin of Denver suggested “turquoise,” which is a pretty cool word I think. If I’d had the energy to produce it out with strings and bass I think this might have been decent. But I was exhausted. Probably the worst song-a-day I’ve done.
Day 24 - turquoise
Gretchen Wagner Borders -
Its a song that uses her name frequently.
