The Bus Song

Would you believe I wrote this song while I was on a bus????

This song was written on May 3rd 1999 on a bus from boston to providence, or the other way around. I don't remember. I am very patient and really have no trouble sitting on a bus for many hours. The boston/providence bus ride is just an hour, and i had no trouble at all. The only trouble I had was writing songs. Of the 5 songs I wrote on that bus ride, The Bus Song was the only one that ever got off the page and onto tape. It was really just a song I wrote for the sake of writing a song, and was just inspired by the place i was at the time: on a bus.

This song is a great example of how profanity can really help improve things.

I recorded the drums and bass first not intended for this song, but just arranged to have lyrics added. I didn't like it when i recorded it and almost discarded it, but rediscovered a little while later and liked it and decided to add the lyrics from The Bus Song, which as the time was called Bussing, before it became The Bussing Song and finely The Bus Song, the perfect song to sing while your on a bus.

The small back up high pitch vocals at the end were also origionaly placed after the first chorus but I took that out cause I didn't like it there.
