LYRICS:

 

Oh, Mr. Bluebird
What are you thinking?
We are trying so hard to sleep and
This song is so old this song is so old
What are you thinking?
Oh, Mr. Bluebird
What are you thinking?

 

Well the sun never shines when you want it
And things never occur when you want them
Oh, Mr. Bluebird
Why do you bother?

 

Oh, Mr. Bluebird, what are you thinking?
We are dying for five more minutes
This song is so old this song is so old
What are you thinking?
Oh, Mr. Bluebird, what are you thinking?

 

Oh, Mr. Bluebird, what are you thinking?
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah’s a lovely feeling
But in the morning it’s unappealing
Oh, Mr. Bluebird

 

Oh, Mr. Bluebird, what are you thinking?
I’m wide-awake while the nest is sinking
The party’s ended, the nest in sinking
Oh, Mr. Bluebird

 

Oh, Mr. Bluebird what are you thinking?
We are trying so hard to sleep and
This song is so old this song is so old
What are you thinking?
Oh, Mr. Bluebird

 

 

Tell us how you build up the tune for this song.
It’s hard to explain, but I think when you allow yourself some creative headspace you can surprise yourself.  I hummed this one out one day while walking my dog, and then took the idea to my guitar and hand recorder when I got home. 

 

Tell us how fans are reacting to your music.
This one was a favorite among my friends back when I originally wrote it (it’s more than twelve years old now), so it’s cool to see some remember it after all this time.  Of course, it’s cool to hear those who’ve never heard it, too, are enjoying it.  It seems to have aged well enough.

 

Tell us your point of view on the quality of production of today’s songs to old songs and point out what you think has changed.
Considering how much has progressed, especially home studios, there’s more potential to have higher quality production nowadays. At the end of the day though, it’s not about the DAW or preamps you use.  Quality still falls on the creatives behind the scenes, which is why the greats of yesterday are still being studied and talked about and probably always will.  

 

Tell us any interesting experience in your music career that is significant.
After over a decade of writing songs, finally releasing music this year was a huge step for me!  

 

Tell us how you come across the lyrics of this song.
Those that know me, know I’m not much of a morning person.  There was at one time, a bird built a nest outside my window, and in my frustration, I decided I was going to flesh out my frustrations in the form of song. 

 

Discuss how you plan to create a piece of timeless music that your fans can cherish forever.
That’s a lot of pressure! I just make stuff I like. I’m grateful enough just to have people listening to me in the now. 

 

Tell us what triggers your creativity.
Listening to music.  Reading.  Experiencing life.  

 

Tell us how you generate musical ideas for your composition.
I’ll usually just be playing the riff, and if I come up with an idea I’ll hit record.  If I like it after a few days then I know it isn’t garbage and I’ll try to explore it more.  

 

Tell us your greatest song and state the reason.
I don’t know about my greatest, but lyrically “Saving Grace” (my debut single) is one that holds a lot of meaning to me, which is why I chose to release it first. It sums up many of the struggles I’ve had with not feeling good enough, and gives context to why it took me this long to pursue music in a more meaningful way.  

 

Discuss how you compose this song.
I started with the melody, added some chords, and then chiseled away at the lyrics until it all felt right.  This tends to be how I write a lot of my songs.  

 

Elaborate on the song.
While it started off as this silly, whimsical song, it’s also about the difficulties of growing up and accepting things as they are.  The plan is to include it on my album to provide some additional context.  

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name.
Luke Lanzon is my birth-given name.
