Songs: Two Nights, One Pub

notes / gigs / releases

(lyrics coming soon)

Published by Wipe Out Music Publishing

This is one of those songs I wrote when I was MEANT to be finishing off some of the other ones, which always seems to be a good way to go about it. I'd recently been to the pub with Mr P Myland and, as usual, had had a lovely time without really discussing anything of IMPORT or NEWS. I'd made a note of this as a possible idea for a SONG in by Notebook, and spotted it while thumbing through to find something to fit a nice tune I had started strumming while avoiding finishing off the songs I was supposed to be doing.

The song dictated its own course as it went along. Initially it was JUST going to be about talking crap in the pub, then it decided it was going to move on to trying to solve all the problems of the world but failing, THEN I realised it would be more fun if we DID solve all the problems but were too tiddly to remember what we'd said, and FINALLY I thought that I might as well go the whole hog and have us work it all out.

My FAVOURITE thing though is that I wrote the line "on a piece of paper there were just eleven words" BEFORE I knew what they solution would actually be. Imagined my DELIGHT when "people are all right when they are given half the chance" popped into my head and I counted the words! I could hardly believe it - even as I've just typed it out again now I had to RECOUNT to be sure. That's got to be a sign, right?

UPDATE: After a couple of months of not really liked the original title of "In The Pub (Talking Crap)" we BRANESTORMED it at a Validators practice and came up with "Two Nights, One Pub" instead!
