Suck. Squeeze. Pop. Phooey.

In the mechanical world, the above title makes perfect sense. It’s how an engine works. 

Suck = Pull in air and fuel.

Squeeze = Compress the air and fuel.

Pop = Explode the energy.

Phooey = Dump the residual exhaust.

Most people who drive cars, though, believe all you have to do is put gas in the tank, turn the key, push a pedal, and point the car in the direction they want to go.

Car designers and mechanics know that under the hood is where the magic happens. They know without that, gas choice, key style, and pedal to the metal doesn’t matter.

What’s this got to do with being in the music business, or the book business, or any business for that matter?

I will tell you. This is the music-business version of the mechanical process described above:

Suck = Creative thought.

Squeeze = Practice.

Pop = Showtime!

Phooey = Release a song.

The only problem with the music version is that there is often a lot of effort but the career goes nowhere. The question is why.
