I WROTE THIS SONG: over Skype. I got the idea while driving home from work one night so I went straight to my guitar and figured out the chords to “Auld Lang Syne.” Then everything just started coming out. I called John Flanagan (who lives in LA) and we hashed out the rest over a couple Skype dates.
