Contract work for NASA. Expected to be part of the first manned trip to Mars.
Tried to rework a year or two later with a band, didn’t work. Too moody. This song wants to be a happy one. So smile already.
Around this time I’d started recording some music with a band, and I had found myself unemployed, so I took advantage of all that free time to make an album. It was a concept album only in the sense that I made the whole thing in a short period of time, so it kind of all fit together.
Figured it would be a good album opener. Basically making up the lyrics as I went. This was my “Hey Bulldog.”
