My President is a Muslim
The My president is a Muslim period of my life is a new and exciting time where I feel no need to censor myself in saying anything or stop myself from doing anything. While my songs were previously beginning to cross the line, much of the music made during this period will immediately be nonsensical, humorous, or offensive. I have quickly begun to clutch these elements like a crutch, scared that if I stray to far from any of these that I will lose interest from the listener. I have also begun to show slight signs of social awareness in a couple of the songs.
This songwriting period began while simultaneously taking a songwriting class and interning at a Rap Label and dealing with the pressures of having my own band. I quickly resorted to pre-set formulas and taboo subjects to create instantly likeable and quirky songs. Though these songs are quick to make the listener laugh, many of these songs lack the musicality found with the previous songwriting periods.
This period is embodied in the song Boner Dance. This song is simple, yet very offensive and taboo all made with a AAABBBCCC rhyme scheme. The song for which this period is named for My President is a Muslim is the sister song to the Boner Dance, using an 8 bar Verse with a punchline saved up at the end of each verse. Though I will always be funny and offensive throughout my entire life, it is obvious that this period cannot sustain itself long.
Such attempts have been made to break the mold such as Blue Skies. Perhaps, the impending second year of college will force me to change my game.
