The other day I started what I thought could be a series called Songs about writing, which, yes, is exactly what it says. The first, Jets to Brazil’s I Typed for Miles, was the obvious choice. But when I tried to think of others I realized this series might not work out too well. This morning I woke up with Tim Kasher’s song Strays in my head – sure it’s not completely about writing, but he’s a wonderful storyteller and it has the great line:
Writers are selfish
Writers are egotists
I’m afraid I’m as bad as it gets
Have any suggestions for songs about writing? Please let me know!
