your thoughts about my songs

Well, this one might scramble some of your brains.
  Last week I announced I was starting a new song.  Then after I thought about it, I decided to do something kind of weird.  My 1st. song out there,'' Main Streets U.S. of A'', I received a lot of feedback by close friends -- most of them excellent local musicians --AND THEY LIKED IT!  However, they also had different reasons.  Some thought the lyric was great -some liked the overall arrangement and production-and a lot of them  thought the narrative  (about the different cities) at the end of the song was cool and very creative.
  NOW, since I have begun my 2nd. piece, it occurred to me that those of you out there that I really don't know --what did you like about ''Mn.St.U.S.ofA.''?   Now I don't need tons of lengthy thoughts, I wouldn't be able to read them all.  So maybe a short note from some of you out there would be great!
 I would like to know so I could maybe get a solid feel on how I can proceed with my second and forthcoming other songs.  It's always good to know what your audience likes and wants!
  Keep on crusin'                                                                                                                                                          
                             My best, Charlie

Well, Gadzooks!
   I've finally started on my next song--ok-ok , hold down the cheers and salutations!
I wasn't in the frame of mind to create anything--  I  even tried to draw a stick horse but I couldn't get the tail to look quite right. so I quit that too.  I was in pretty bad shape there for about 3 months, but now I feel I can start with my music again-Whew!
I would like to tell all of you that I recorded in the ''Garage Band'' format several of my songs in the last 2 years.  I did what I considered rough drafts of these 8 songs so I could think about what I really wanted each one of them to sound like and be comfortable about releasing them for your enjoyment and my amazement.  I have 5 more that were recorded several years before and that I intend to include in the forthcoming album.
  As stated before I lost about 3 months of work--it is now the time to get going.  However, with the upcoming holidays, it probably won't proceed as fast as I would like.  Oh well, that's showbiz!
  Keep on cruisin' kiddos --be safe
                My best,Charlie
