Mike Kotulka – Selfish Avenue

A fun song about returning home, “don’t you mourn for me, it’s where I belong.” We don’t always return home because we want to. Circumstances sometimes spin us out of control, and we need to face those demons. With a fun beat the narrator continues on about “the child that I outgrew on a selfish avenue.” Would that we could all outgrow that child. One never knows how much of a song is autobiographical, but I can assure you that Mike and his band are not selfish, but are totally giving of their creative abilities and very open to sharing. Thanks, because I certainly enjoy the song, as well as two shoutouts – a harmonica led Born To Try, and the rock and roll pop treasure Mike calls Gimme Love. Good fun. Mike Kotulka
