Like a bird

Dan would get requests to use his songs for all kinds of things - commercials, movies, etc. Some he would okay, some he would refuse. He said that once a song was published, it was like sending a child of his into the world. Some of his songs sprang, fully formed, into his head. Others took days, months, or years, of intense, draining, focus and effort. Sometimes he would shake his head in amazement at the lives his "children" had led, and the unexpected opportunities that would still pop up from time to time for even the oldest of them.
