Day 1: Good ideas, a long time coming

February 2, 2017


Today's song is a cabaret tune that I started back in 2009 during my first "Song of the Day" project:  "Just Because I Ain't Been Caught Yet" (sung in the video below by the amazing Katelyn Baron at my Graduate School Thesis recital in 2013).



What finally helped me finish this song 4 years after it was first conceived, you may ask. The answer is a graduate school project in which I attempted to write theatre songs in the style of various composers.  (Shout out to Dr. Herendeen for letting me create my own final project in a class full of performance majors.) This song was my attempt at the style of Cole Porter.  :)


<sidebar> I love the movie "Music & Lyrics" (probably for obvious reasons), and one of my favorite lines is when Hugh Grant's character says, "you're like Cole Porter in panties."  </sidebar>


For publishing this song, I decided to try out another idea that's been percolating a while: the idea of selling sheet music on Etsy.  I've purchased other digital downloads on Etsy, (planner pages, stickers, etc) but I have yet to see anyone else selling original music there. I figure that this either means that it's the best idea in the world or the worst -- but I guess that's why this project is an experiment!  (And I will say that it was surprisingly easy to set up my Etsy storefront -- "Ye Olde Music Shoppe," because why not? -- with it's first digital download.)


You can buy the sheet music for "Just Because I Ain't Been Caught Yet" here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/495699594/sheet-music-cabarettheatre-solo-just
