52 Songs in 52 Weeks
"52 Songs in 52 Weeks" was about being a songwriter again. It was about being accountable to anyone who would follow my attempt to write and offer up a weekly song. It became more than I expected, like a real-time record of things in and around me. It became a way of feeling purpose in every song. No one was between the listener and me, like a tiny concert with one song each week. When it was finished, people submitted their 'top 10s' and these are the 16 songs most mentioned. I think of '52 Songs' as a song cycle now; all 52 songs with shades of the seasons and connected to each other. I had the year I wanted doing "52 Songs" and it gave me what I needed. I was a songwriter again. James.
