Lyricist & Musician
Once upon a time a music teacher encouraged his students to present their favourite music to the rest of the class.
One morning, a boy from the very back row brought in a song called, "Brown Shoes Don't Make It".
The girls started giggling and fidgeting and the teacher didn't look very happy.
Right in the middle of the song, the music teacher ripped the record from the turntable.
He had this terrible bug-eyed look on his face. It was one of the greatest things I'd ever heard.
