1-31-09 Butterflies Can't Fall Very Far

The title of this song came first, and it was generated kunjabunja-style with my wife. For those of you who aren't familiar with Kunjabunja, it's a method of song generation pioneered by my friend and bandmate David, along with his friend Sadiq. It emphasizes quantity over quality - the writing process is meant to be quick and definitive, without going back to refine or judge the thing just made. A big part of what shapes the song is the title. One of the preferred methods for making up a title is to have each person in the room contribute a word to the title, which is how Sarah and I generated this title.

Kunjabunja was definitely one of the main catalysts for me to write a song every day in 2009.
