Here’s a song for you lucky folks that are going out on a lake this weekend. “Magic on the Water” is a song trying to convey the feeling of being out on the water in the evening taking it all in. The water can be very meditative. Something unfortunately, I don’t get to experience that often.
Oh well, at least I’ve got a song about it. Thanks for listening!
2nd song from Getaway Plans remix featuring the great Jason Fuller on piano. This is by far my most popular song in Morganton, my home town, because it is about a true story of what we saw one night at the 3 Way Supply up at Lake James. It’s a funny song without a chorus, just a good old americana instrumental breakdown. Thanks for listening!
Another tough day in the heat. I wish it was winter time already (after having a horrible winter). Anyway, we at least got to drive around Lake James on our new recycling route today. That was nice. That’s probably where this song came from. I sat down when I got home tonight and wrote three different things. This was the first one that made it to the tape. Thanks for listening!
What a brutal day on the old recycling truck. I made the mistake of not bringing water (opting for Hardee’s lemonade/tea mixture which was only desirable for the first 32 oz.’s). Needless to say, I was not in optimal condition. However, we got ‘r done, as we always do. We start new territory tomorrow, Lake James awaits. It will be sweet looking at some nice lake scenery while sorting plastic bottles and soup cans. I’m not averse to jumping in at some point during the route either. That was my trademark when I was a pool maintenance guy, I always had to jump in to test the product.
On a totally different note, “Love You” is a sweet love song touting the wonders of openness and frankness, two things that every relationship needs an injection of.
Thanks for listening!!
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.
