Title: You Put My Love Out The Door
Post by: kralenpregn on July 01, 2010, 02:33:44 AM
You know, this whole Daniel Johnston experience that I have been
going through for over seven months now, is really mind shifting.
On an artistic level, he so fascinates me, and breathes life into every creative vessel within me.
When I first started listening to his music, going through the archives, my ears weren't used to listening to music recorded like that, except for my own, half assed attempts at it. And besides that, I didn't start out 'liking' every song. In fact, initially, I liked a very low number of them. But the ones that I did like, were my    
all-time favorites. But as time went on, and I back tracked, listening
to those songs again, I am now at a level, where I love every one of
them. And still, I am hearing new songs, as if, I had never heard it
before! And THIS is what motivated this letter. I was just now listening
to More Songs Of Pain, and heard You Put My Love Out The Door, !!!
That is such a cool song!
Is that a Daniel Johnston original or is it a cover?
I just can't believe that that one got away from me for so long !!!

I had a similar sensation, and I've been listening to Daniel for well over a decade.
When I first got the tapes, I played them over and over and over. Headphones even. I didn't know anything about Daniel. My only doorway was through his music. I wasn't sure if he was alive or when he was actually making these tapes. I became a man obsessed. That's just the magic of these songs, and believe me, it is indeed magic.

I had the same experience, only liking a small percentage of his songs initially. It's a few years later and his songs continue to win me over, sometimes because I'm in a different mood, and other times when i pay closer attention to the lyrics or songwriting. he's really unlike most other artists in this regard.
