Every find a song, within all this work, life, collabs and etc. you forgot about, see/hear it, find it, stumble across it and wonder, "damn, that's a good song, who's is it?", and it's yours?
It's happened to me, not often, but a couple of time; months later, -- it's more self validating than anything else. And, I don't mean in an ego way, more like if you ever had any doubts if you should be "making music", -- humble validation.
Also, mentioned previously, family, wife, etc., none care about music at all, -- figures, right!
---- Anyway, so my wife who doesn't get music, or particularly fond of mine hahhh... she walks in on me going through a play list, (I'll BlueTooth to a nice "stereo" sometimes to pick stuff) ... so she walks in and wants to know who "that" is, never heard it before and sounds "pretty good"... "who's that" (I play allot of music by others). So she's expecting zyx-name persons stuff she's never heard... but hahhh, no, it's me.
-- Then she says, "yeah, I always said you were good"... uh, no, she didn't -- interesting the kinds of folks who wind up together, 180 degrees in some ways, aye?!
(I play 'cause I love it, mom's not hear telling me how great I am )
