Man Writes Songs Day After Day After Day

ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 30 (UPI) — Forgive Terry Eason of St. Paul, Minn., if he skips singing “Auld Lang Syne” Saturday; if all goes as planned, he will have written a year’s worth of songs.

Eason began his New Year’s resolution on, well, Jan. 1, 2011, and after experiencing an “aha” moment attending the “Make Something Cool Everyday” exhibit in Minneapolis, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Friday.

“I don’t want it to be perceived as some kind of ego trip,” Eason said. “I see it more as a personal exercise.”

After writing and recording a new song every day in 2011, Eason posted his daily efforts online.

Topics were of-the-moment, such as having a root canal or waiting for a locksmith, the Pioneer Press said.

“There’s some really poppy, melodic songs, some atmospheric and weird ones, some electronic ones,” he said. “Either for good or bad, I think there’s some pretty cool stuff that came out of this that wouldn’t have come out otherwise.”

As for the first day of 2012, Eason said he and his daughter will go to the Minnesota Vikings game and he won’t be memorializing the outing in lyrics.
