In some of my free time, I sing in a band. I’ve been singing all of my life; in a host of different bands for about 10 years. One group (Dame Station) recorded a CD of original tunes back in 2000: although we hired musicians to fill in the sound, the core writing group was three women, including me. I say all of this to let you know that I have a deep understanding of what goes into the crafting of a song. When I happen upon brilliant lyrics, I bow to those who write them, and thank them for their genius.
Even if you only have basic cable, you can still get some booty. Just tune into Modern Family and tell yourself that you're watching it "for the jokes."
