crooning engineer Martin Rowe introduced his
latest ode to the underappreciated and overworked members of society
known as engineers. "'Red
' is a song for the engineers and technicians who have spent
weekends on the road fixing problems. All too often, these trips come
up at the last minute, ruining weekend plans. The inspiration for the
song came from when I worked for a company that made measurement-and-control
systems. One Friday afternoon, a call came in from an ice cream company
that used one of your systems to monitor freezer temperature. The customer
said in a voice kind of like Darth Vader, 'This factory must run.' ...
The 'red eye' part of the song comes from the fact that I have flown
many a red-eye flight from California to Boston over the years.
