Ask Charles Locke anything...

Submit Question
Q: Charles Locke! How many songs have you written?!
A: Ha - Hey Martin; that's a good question. It would be like asking you how many TV shows and movies have you worked on. When I was 13 years old I remember when I wrote my 50th song on the piano and I thought that it was quite an accomplishment. Then in the mid-80s it took me one whole year, 8 hours a day, to go through my 1000s and 1000s of cassette tapes and catalog every original song I could find which came to over 3000 and that doesn't include all the songs that I only recorded on reel to reel tapes. Then I went through all my notebooks and cataloged the lyrics to over 20,000 songs which, of course, I didn't have the time to put a melody to them all so most of my words are just poems waiting for a singer. And then about 25 years later, in 2009, I sent another 900 songs to the Library of Congress, Copyright Office. And I don't have an exact figure, but I usually just tell people I wrote over 4000 songs which basically means that I could sing you a different original song every 4 minutes, 24 hours a day for 11 days straight. Another cup of Starbucks Martin? haha - Somebody once told me that if I stopped writing songs Staples would go out of business. ----------------------------- "This is Dan Random reporting to you live from the desk top of Charles Locke; and now back to Connie Chunking who's in the studio with the ever amazing Martin Olson... Connie." ---------------------------- "Yes, thank you Dan. And tell me Martin; do you ever worry about getting carpal tunnel syndrome from autographing so many of your books?"
