I’m heartened by all of today’s B-day wishes. I appreciate it very much! Today’s song is what I recorded last year on this day and it rocks pretty good. “Another year older/ another year wiser / another entrée / another appetizer”, pure poetry right?
It’s crunch time for the Lakers today. I hope they can pull it out, I’m not ready to see Phil retire. One thing I know, is Kobe will come to play. This is the song I wrote last year when they were about to win the finals when Kobe wouldn’t let them lose. It’s also one of my favorite songs I’ve done (even though it’s very silly).
I saw an article from Spain where they talk about this song ( and even translate it ). I recorded it on November 14th for this blog last year and have gotten an outpouring of support from Spanish basketball fans. I’m a big Rubio fan, but I also like Gasol, Navarro and a few more up and coming players from there.
Whats’ really cool is that now that it’s gotten this much attention, maybe Ricky Rubio himself has listened to it. If so, holla at me Ricky. I’d love to come to a FC Barcelona game!!!!!
This song makes me laugh every time. Coda Baerfider (Rico Davenport) is brilliant in this impromptu, pseudo-spiritual/funk interlude. Gary Hartle (aka G the Nefarious) provides the tenor sax, recorded in the bathtub of our delapidated house in Athens at the time. For those of you who didn’t go to church today, maybe you’ll get some religion out of this. Or at least a laugh.
I had to do a cheesy Christmas song right? Happy holidays!!!
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
