"What About Me?" "Hot Sauce" "She Got Even"
(#6) (#7) (#8)





Many people have told me this is one of their all-time favorite songs I've written.  To me, it's quite unsophisticated songwriting-wise.  Very simple chords, melody, and lyrics.  Sometimes a certain combo of these just works, inexplicably.  The subject matter is appealing, I suppose.  The importance of catchy, familiar, recognizable & memorable song titles should not be underestimated.  I had written this on a scrap of notebook paper from back in the early 90s when I used to frequent various restaurant/bars that featured 10 cent wing specials on certain nights, and groups of guys would show up together and sort of compete with each other for quantity and speed before reaching for the mug of beer.  Good times.  This was way before the whole concept took off popularity-wise and you saw a majority of such establishments offer these or entire specialty chains like Hooters and Buffalo Wild Wings.  It was a new thing to me at the time, and somehow in your early 20s and bar-hopping days, it seemed like a pretty cool experience to have.  The fact that you could get a natural "high" of sorts from spicy pepper sauce on food was somewhat a novelty to people at the time.
