Im thinking of new songs to write about. I thought of the Black Sox Scandal as a topic. any more suggestions?
That is a cool topic, I was thinking maybe like since it was never proven and commonly agreed that Shoeless Joe had nothing to do with it, maybe the song could be from his perspective, like maybe what the loss of the game meant to him or the conspiracy involoved in accusing him. Something more more defined than just a song about the broad topic.
Sounds like a cool idea for me. The world needs more baseball songs. Think you can top "Centerfield?"
either way though, lyrically i would not overly talk about or use the words black sox or baseball, try to make it more abstract and open to interpretation while having that as the overall topic that way it isnt exclusive to people who know about that, however for the people that do it would have a deeper meaning.
be metaphoric bro. u a white sox fan. if so than im glad to know im not alone around here.
