Goodnight Mary-Ellen

My 13th song in a little under twelve months….very nearly an album’s worth (one more short track to go). This is a piano written and indeed based track so maybe a little different.
For those who remember The Waltons, this song isn’t Waltons related….the title/line just came into my head while I was writing. For those who don’t remember The Waltons….well either your memory is poor or you’re too young….curse you and your youth!

The song will be on Spotify and the other streaming services in a few days but I choose the BandCamp link as it means I can embed a player that lets anyone listen without needing to add anything extra.

Share, enjoy and stay safe folks.

Isn’t Bill Gates Great?

So, ever since my first Covid jab on Saturday I have been installing Windows for Workgroups on all of the electronic devices at Planarchy Acres…can’t think why?

So glad I kept the diskettes though!

fondly remembered trains

This was the working title of this latest song but then, as it neared release, it changed to “The World Turns”. Then I had a discussion with a few fellow home recordists and songwriters about the importance of song titles in these days of streaming ways, so called liberated days. Once people started saying they preferred the train version of the title I suddenly realised I was more attached to it too. There are, by the way, two different trains in the song…they’re not the same train. This may be important.

Anyway this is the BandCamp link but it’s also on Spotify and Apple Muzac etc, etc……

Lost at Sea

is the time of the month when I release some more music. This one is coming out on Bandcamp first just because I remembered about it this month and Bandcamp is instantaneous. And here it is: Lost at Sea

60!

Somehow, thepassage of time I guess, I got to be sixty years old. Today. Well later this evening technically. Here’s my present to the world….
Have a safe day folks.

Some more Space That’s In Between….

The Space That’s In Between me being born and last Thursday was 21,898 days. On the same day for elder daughter it was 10,949 days…or exactly half as much. So on that day I was exactly twice as old as she was.

A song related to this in some nebulous way…….funny you should ask.
