Sweetest Perfection, #1073


I had so much fun the other  night with two music buddies.  They’re in the middle of a recording project and asked if I could come record some backup vocals for a couple of their songs.  I’ve spent some limited time in the recording studio over the years, but it’s been a really long time.  It sounded like fun, so I left the kids with my hubby for a night and rolled up my sleeves to lend my voice to their song.

What a blast – but also hard work.  The thing about recording is that your game needs to be on.  You can’t screw up – at all, or the microphone will pick it up.  I am the queen of imperfection, and when you typically sing with kids, you don’t need to be perfect.

Studio work is a challenge, and I have to say that I really love and welcome it.  It’s nice to be challenged from time to time, and artistically, it was good for my soul.

Just saying – so nice to have a breath of fresh air.  So, my song of the day is from Depeche Mode, because recording music is really the “Sweetest Perfection.”

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
