Well, this is my second attempt to write a song based on my facebook status from a few weeks back. The second request I got was “high school” which gave me a lot of creative wiggle room. So I decided to fuse it with another suggestion. One of my friends suggested that I write about the plot of a fantasy novel he’s writing, so I decided to do that only make it in the setting of a high school. It made the story reminiscent of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The result is one of the weirder songs I’ve ever written. I also decided to write the song from two different perspectives, play in two different time signatures and use my guitar case for percussion. Woohoo! Oh, and don’t ask me why I chose the name Jenny Jackson. It just seemed like a good superhero name.
