♫ Musical inspiration for Out of The Blue ♫

The other day while driving I hooked up my iPod to the car radio. It was on shuffle and it was playing various songs over a wide variety of genres, most songs played I had completely forgotten I had.  It wasn’t until this song came on that I remembered my misspent youth listening to anything and everything Melissa Etheridge. When I got home I quickly flicked through all the albums I have of hers – which is all of them I think – and I listened and listened. And I remembered being a lanky teenager saving all her money just to buy this album. I raced home with the cassette (yes it was that long ago) plugged in my headphones and got out my pad and paper so I could write down all the lyrics.  The things we used to do 🙂

For whatever reason, this song stayed with me and it sets the tone for the entire album.

Melissa_Etheridge_-_Yes_I_Am

If you haven’t got it, I recommend downloading it.  Good luck trying to find the cassette now 🙂
