So. About my Facebook Live feed last night…
Obviously, that didn’t work out the way I’d planned. The plan was to tell you the story about how “The Na Na Song” got its title and to play it for you. The point was to let you know that you now have a place where you can download that song, and a whole lot more because I’ve just relaunched my website!
I’d love for you to visit the site and listen to all the music I have out there for you. I’ve started with three albums, STORIES FROM SAMMY LOUIS, ALWAYS SOULFUL, and the latest ADVICE FOR THE KIND HEARTED. The cool thing about this site, though, is that you can get a single, or you can pick the 12 songs you want from any album, and make your own album for the price of 10 singles.
I’ll be adding more tracks, you can sign up here to get notified when I’ve done that.
And now about the story behind the “Na Na Song.” Sometimes when you’re writing lyrics, it’s hard to find just the right words to go with the music you already have. On this song, I was singing it over and over, and when I got to the part that needed lyrics, I just filled in na, na, na na na where the words would go. Later when my son, Samiel wanted to hear it again, he asked me to play “that Na Na Song” and it just stuck!
Finally, let me say that I’m sorry about not being able to live stream for you last night. I want to make it up to you by making this song a free download for the rest of the weekend!
Go to www.shakeanderson.com and follow the menu to CATALOGUE where you’ll find “The Na Na Song.” Just press the play button to hear it, and click on the word DOWNLOAD on the player to get your free song. I hope you’ll look around the site while you’re listening to it, sign up on the mailing list and let me know what you think.
