  4. I'm not sure if it counts as a "bio'" but i wrote some comments on my song at my blog


  5. Brian- I wasn't familiar with the original song, but now you have explained what it was about, and what your take on it was for the sequal, it is so much richer. Thank you for telling us about it. I thought it might be about something completely different, glad I know what it really talks about.

  6. Thanks, JoAnn. I was actually kind of worried about the bio. Sometimes songs as symbolically authored as mine can be interpreted personally for each listener and have a more appropriate meaning to each person. Then when explained, it only means one thing and some of that goes away. I'm glad to hear that narrowing down the meaning didn't detract from the song.
