I think I've just topped my previous record by emailing NASA to ask how often a perigree moon occurs on a Christmas Eve - to my astonishment (& massive respect & appreciation) THEY REPLIED!
I did about 3 days research for a song about the Titanic once and several hours looking into the USS Indianapolis recently.
The most effort is 1 year (so far) on a massive 70 song concept album which I'm keeping fairly quiet about for now (14 songs written, 56 to go ) 😜😜😜😜
What do you guys do? Am I normal?

Wow! I'm impressed. I can offer no similar story. My songs are much more simple and don't tend to go for large themes. So far at least!!!

well  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D, normal...normal.....mhhh......you are exceptional at least, GTB  ;D ;D ;D
you seem to like numbers, and facts, and strange time signatures...

and if understand correctly ;D ;D ;D, for your 70's concept album, you only have to finish 70 - 14 = 56 songs

you don't sound completely normal, but you do sound like a very obsessional songwriter who could fit very easily on a songwriting forum
with a name like..

songwriters on planet Alpha

or even worse:

songwriters in the kitchen

or something like that  ::) ::) ::) ::)

i hope that helped and if not you can take all kinds of psychological tests on this thread for further diagnosis and evaluation  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D:

Yep, 56 to go and I haven't written one for 2 days (must be writers block 😉
