my former employers asked me to write a song for their annual "chairman's circle" benefit. to be in the "chairman's circle" you have donated at least $1500 to help run the scholastic art & writing awards. the ceo of scholastic, dick robinson, was in attendance. susan sarandon was lurking in the shadows. my old co-workers were passing out raffle tickets and slurping down free booze. it was weird.
let me tell you, it's not easy to write a song about a corporation or an awards program for young artists and writers. it's actual work! i straight up spent three weeks pouring over this two minute ditty, but it ultimately went over well at the event. dick dug it, although susan was nowhere to be found.
