Been There, Done That!


Writers: Tom Murphy/Jerry Silverstein

Story

Tom and I wrote this song, and I brought it to an NSAI Song Camp in Nashville and had it critiqued by James Dean Hicks. His suggestions were great and we did the re-write and had it demoed. When we played it again for James Dean the next year he was really impressed, even though he had totally forgotten that he had critiqued the song in an earlier incarnation. The problem is that there are a lot of songs with the hook "Been There, Done That!", and though we've gotten lots of interest, it never was recorded.  I am convinced, though, that we've written one of the best of the bunch. It's a great demo and would be perfect for a synch placement in film or television.
