From the Vault: The First Song I Ever Sold

or how I made $5000 with TWO words 🙂

I wrote “The Girl I Love” with Bill Short in Sacramento, CA.

We shopped it around and a major food chain was interested. They didn’t like our singing and asked if we’d hire session singers – which is the version on this mp3

There’s a line in the song “Part of Me”

They changed it to “Part of Your Life”… and that was the whole commercial.

So Bill and I each received $5000 for two original words… “Part of” 🙂 🙂

Odd business we’re in!
