My new musical theory, in progress

Trips like these afford you a lot of time to stop and think about things. I’ve been using that time to develop a new musical theory. It’s a little hard to put across in “coherent sentences,” but it boils down to the idea that all truly great songs end in “Hey!” For example: “The Dreidel Song.” Also, some versions of “The Birthday Song.”
This new idea of mine may be partly influenced by the fact that I’ve been spending a lot of time with kids on this trip. Or mebbe it’s something about the 90+ degree clime we’re experiencing here in beautiful Colmar, France (birthplace of Frédéric August Bartholdi, creator of the Statue of Liberty). Or maybe, just maybe, I’m right.
Speaking of things I may well be right about: I saw a sign in Switzerland that I’m pretty sure said “please don’t dress up like a dog and poop on my lawn.”

    got me to thinking about songs starting with hey in the title. hey jude, hey bop a re bop…i was going to list them all, but wow, there are a lot. perhaps you should hold two votes, one for favorite song ending in hey and another for favorite song title beginning with hey. and you could get sponsors, like record companies, print shirts, and finally hold a ‘save the world’ concert benefit. bono and gates could do a duet.
    it just takes vision. “or merely illusions, rainbows have nothing to hide.”
