Which Songs Do You Like?

"Which song is the best one I have
written in the last 6 months"
Last night after I came back from listening to some local bands I wrote another song. I thought about all the songs that I have composed since my last CD. If you haven't heard "More Whatever" you can download it here.

So I started to listen to all of the songs that I made since my last CD release. And there are a lot of songs. I really have enough songs to make a new CD right now.

One way that I can tell that a song is good is when I hear it in my head or start to sing it away from my guitar. When I got up this morning, I heard one of my recent songs play in my head. And thinking back to my dreams, I heard them in my dreams too.

This is my latest song, When A Smile Isn’t What it Seems. As I sat down last night, I looked around the venue and the first line popped into my mind. When I came back home, I wrote it.

What I would like to know is what is your favorite song that I have wrote since my last CD? Which one is the most 'emo' if you think that I write emo songs? Which one is the least 'emo'? Which one do you dislike? Which one rocks the most? Is there a song you wouldn't like to heard on the new CD? Which song has to go on the new CD? You can post comments here or email me.

Here are all of the songs that I have recorded since my last CD.

Heya Herb!
I posted this over at your MySpace site but I also wanted to post this here at "homebase"-

WOW Herb!
Thats a REAL tough question! I've got my favorites narrowed down to two.

-She's Not The Girl For You!
-You Are The Best Nerd In The World

Personally I think that is because they are "emo" in a different sort of way. There's more of an aggressive emotion about them so they tend to stick in my mind more (As I write this, I'm listening to 'Why Do You Care'. That one is REALLY GOOD too and it should probably be right up there with my favorites).

I'd say that 'Time Can Heal All Wounds' is probably the most emo out of all of them and its absolutely superb! You do such a good job at emo that if I didn't know any better, I'd say you were drawing off of experience?

The Least emo is definately Classroom! It sounds like you had fun doing it though!

As far as disliking your songs, I can honestly say I don't dislike any of them! But I know you want constructive critisim so If I were to say just one thing it would be to mix it up more when you put the CD together. A sine wave of emo would really put the listener through the paces. After listening to your emo, Wolfman to Man was a Welcome pick me up! I'm not used to being that emotional!

If I were to pick just one song for the new CD(other than the must haves up top barring Classroom), it would have to be....I know its a long shot, I'm A Nerd recorded with Social Bliss!

All in all, FANTASTIC job!
Looking forward to more of
