#25: You’re Beautiful September 30th, 2007
This happens all the time these days: I go back and listen to old stuff and I can’t believe how uncertain and hesitant I sounded then, or just how slow it is. Is that really how I used to play this? That’s really what people’ve been listening to all these years? Man! That’ll teach me to record stuff right after I write it. Jeez.
I’m sure that in a few years I’ll find this version just as appalling, but for now, here’s “You’re Beautiful” as it actually sounds. I’m pretty proud of this song. Not everything I wrote in 2003 I still think is worth keeping, but with this I think the songwriting has actually held up, if not the performance.
Thanks for listening!
