Song Backstory: World Trade Sinner / Patrick Brayer
I thought it might be interesting to offer up some song backstory as part of this ongoing online journal effort. I was at breakfast this morning with my daughter Eleanore. Was that the sound of bacon cooking, or the smell of ship to shore radio static? I started whistling a song, almost more in an attempt to see if I could even still whistle, than it was entertainment. I don’t know where it came from, as I tried to place its source. First I thought it was an old famous melody, and then it all came back to me, I wrote it. And then the background circumstance behind the behind began to trickle in. I can’t remember the original name of the song, as that shortsightedness is part of the circumstance itself. The song it became I re-titled, World Trade Sinner.
