While having my morning coffee I was thinking of a unpublished/not signed singer/songwriter who I will call Joe.
Joe has been contacting me for over 12 years via telephone. And every conversation is exactly the same. I could even tell Joe what he is going to say ( word for word ) next time he calls.
He mentions how great his songs are...how they are all #1 hit records...how everyone loves them....he will sing over the telephone...and the list goes on and on.
What Joe doesn't realize, and sadly I don't think he ever will, is that what he is saying is no different than 99% of those in the same position and for that reason Joe does not stand out in a positive way.
It would be a breath of fresh air to hear Joe say "Good Morning, my name is Joe and I wrote a Really Bad Song and I am calling to request permission to send it to you".
Gotta go..The phone is ringing...it's Joe. So I have to tell Joe what he's gonna say.
