Kobe Time (song)

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).

Ricky Rubio Song

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!!!!!

October 27th “300th Song”

Believe it or not, today is the 300th day of the year.  Which means it’s also my 300th song.   My tendency has been to commemorate this kind of thing, although I should write about that Celtics / Heat game last night.  Not to mention the Ron Artest show afterward.   300 songs is getting on up there though, the year will be over before we know it.

May 14th’s Song “It Might Be What You’re Looking For”

Well Lebron lost, as I said  yesterday, I hope he stays.  I was going to do a song about that today but it didn’t come out the way I wanted it to, so I arrived at this one.   Maybe I’m subconsciously speaking to Lebron in the song telling him to smile and get over it.     I think that’s why they lost.  They quit having fun.  That’s something we should never do.  Always have fun, even if things aren’t so great.   I know, better said than done.   At least it’s a nice thought.

Feb 23 “Kobe and Gasol”

I can’t believe I haven’t done more songs with my Triton.   My Triton is a KORG keyboard that you can basically create anything you want with.   I’ve had mine for about eight years and the buttons are literally worn off.

I’m a big NBA basketball fan as you may have noticed and tonight Kobe and the Lakers are playing while I’m working on this song.  Great basketball is like great jazz, so I added a little jazzy guitar to the electronic sounds.

I’ll admit it, I’m a huge Kobe and Gasol fan..   And don’t even mention Ron Artest, the modern-day Rodman, one of the greatest personalities of our day and age.   Don’t worry I pull for Lebron too.   I know as a human being that I’m obligated to do that.     The Lakers in 7.

Feb 7 “Because it’s Super Bowl Sunday”

It’s that one day of the year where all life on God’s Green Earth hinges around a football game.  And it looks like it’s gonna be a good one this year.  The Vatican is even flying a Saint’s flag!!!!!!!

I figured if I’m doing a song for every day this year I’m obligated to write one about the super bowl on Super Bowl Sunday.   That’s where “Because it’s Super Bowl Sunday” came from, it’s for all the guys out there that just don’t want to do the ‘honey-do’s’ today because the game is coming on (at 6:30pm).

The song also gives a run down of some tasty treats that will be over-indulged  by us while staring at the tube today.    I actually don’t eat many of the things I’m talking about, except for maybe today, “Because it’s Super Bowl Sunday”.
