Joshua Radin Turns Lemons Into Lemonade

Joshua Radin says when he was living in a small apartment, he had a problem with his next door neighbor.  Apparently she was a little old lady who complained often about his loud guitar playing and singing.

So to work around it, he began playing and singing softer.  Singing softer became a habit so even when he left the apartment he still produced softer music.

So with this style, he cut one hell of a CD with songs featured on Greys Anatomy, Scrubs and the movie The Last Kiss.

We might wonder if he would have made it as far if some music-hater hadn’t given him a hard time…

It’s true, all the times something forces you to detour or go right instead of left, all the little things that happen to give you new ideas or change old ones… I have found this to be how life seems to go.

I think that’s why a lot of us become blog addicts, there is always something that could change the course of our personal history.
