February Album Writing Month

It’s February 1st, and I’m starting this year’s February Album Writing Month! Participating in the challenge to “Write 14 Songs in 28 Days” was my original plan last year, but a breakup and subsequent move required my energy and attention. I’m happy to say that I’m feeling a lot freer this year, and I’m ready to dig in.

This Week’s Songwriting Challenge: Week 1: Jobs

Write a song about the work-a-day world. One idea: express your elation (or frustration) about your own job (or perhaps lack thereof?). Another idea: write an ode to your favorite occupation or person who holds that occupation, from barista to tech support.

Examples: “9 to 5” by Dolly Parton, “Take This Job And Shove It” by David Coe, “This Place Sucks” by The Descendents, “The Old Dope Peddler” by Tom Lehrer.
