May 26 “You’re Falling in Love”

The tire exploded on the recycling truck yesterday afternoon, so it’s been an interesting week.  We still managed to get to 220 houses in Hildebran today and pull in about 6000 pounds of stuff.   The perfect background for me to come home and write an ambient love song right?  This song is more of a mood piece than a normal vocal song.   It’s meant to capture that feeling when you first fall in love.

Song for May 13th “Hitch Hiking in Mississippi”

A lovely Thursday with a million things to do.   That’s how it always is when you’re out of town all of the time.  I’m just biding my time until the Cavs/Celtics game tonight.   Lebron has to win if he’s gonna stay in Cleveland.   I hope he stays.

Today’s song started out about something much different but somehow it ended up on this ghost theme.  Maybe it’s from article I recently read.   I have no ghostly idea.

April 13th “Nothing is a Strong Foundation for Nothing”

I’m obviously still on my ‘Einstein’ kick.   He was definitely a remarkable man and an incredible violinist to boot.   To be able to mathematically map out the Universe is pretty sharp.     He was a nice guy with a very funny dry wit (when he wasn’t working).

Anyway, that’s probably where this song got it’s start.   I sat down in front of the computer after a big day recycling down the mountain and once again something popped out  (musically that is).   Thanks for listening!!

Jan. 6th “Love Your Girl”

Well, this is my first late post.  After an exciting day recycling in the big city of Hildebran and a near death experience, I got home late.   Which left me only a little time to hang out with Adair before I left for my bi-annual poker game with my golfing buddies.    Long story short, I should have stay home and saved the money.  Oh well, I had a good time though.

I got home a little after midnight and started working on a tune but after getting up at 5:30am that morning I didn’t get something recorded before I started to crash.

Anyway, this is what came from those efforts last night and my efforts (and choppy drumming) from this morning.

It’s called “Love Your Girl” and it’s a story song about not forgetting to remember that sweet love in your life.
