Inspiration Escaped
Tuesday, August 22 2006 @ 07:17 AM CDT

Woke up at 2:something this morning, inspired with a Latin - samba style song in my head. I mean, I had bells, other custom percussion goin on, ziti, scorp and John on solos, craft on vocals, lyrics building, even a title for the song

Then I went downstairs for the free hotel breakfast, CNN on the tube, Credence, Momma & the Papa's, and The Judds etc. all playing over the intercom while I'm eating my pre-fabbed egg-sponges.

It's gone. All inspiration is lost for now, I can't even hear the traffic. AAAAGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!

If you've got a mobile phone you may find that it has a voice memo function (on my phone it's hidden in the 'entertainment' section). So I sing all the ideas I have into it and I can transfer them via bluetooth to my computer later. The only problem with this is that sometimes I can't detect any recognisable tune when I listen back after a few days (partlicularly if I've been trying to vocalise percussion when I did the recording!)

Aggh! I hate when that happens.
Last week I bought a digital dictaphone for about £30 that goes everywhere, in case inspiration strikes. Otherwise I ring home and leave the idea on my own answering machine (which can be pretty funny, believe me ...)
