There wasn’t any point in the day, (though maybe there should have been), where I stopped and said to myself, “I’m making a hit song.”
But having the time to reflect and look back on it, maybe I was. Maybe Hiding will actually be as big as I want to become. Maybe not. It’ll always be a great achievement to me.
I am still feeling the after-effects of exhaustion; working myself to the limit where my calves gave out. I’d spent so long playing and practising and working up for that moment that I didn’t want to stop and rest at any point of the day. I wanted to charge on through.
Chris and I had a few inside moments where we stopped to grin at each other or I did a silent little, “Oh my freaking God!” dance behind TK’s back. I used the final vocal session as a chance to dance around in the booth to the music I’d made. I keep expecting to include someone else’s name somewhere in the liner notes, but no.
These are all mine.
A more technical rundown of the day is here.
