Who's the woman? Yeah, that would be me. Why's that, you ask?
Because my song is ranked #15 out of 327. I broke the top twenty!!!!!
Woo hoo!! Woo hoo!!
Particularly at times like this when all my musical efforts from the past eighteen months are beginning to look like a gigantic, unappreciated waste of my time....it's nice to know that something I did isn't just good in my book. It's nice to know that there are people out there who like what I do and are willing to say so.
I know, I know, I'm not reading too much into the acclaim of a bunch of musicians who're all out for their own glory....but just for a minute, I'm going to bask in the glory of climbing a chart, even if it isn't by Billboard.
