Cyndi Lauper – when she sings

I hit a brick wall with my writing yesterday…a couple of decision points in the story just didn’t ring true enough, so I am pondering how this is fixed. I think I know what I can do, but this morning I have let my subconscious work away on the problem while I tried to get vocals somewhere near right on a song or two that I’m working on. So here is the link to When She Sings…a musical version of a poem I wrote after a 2011 gig she did here in Perth…yeah, it’s taken almost 6 years…hope the novel is quicker. I am going to see here again in a couple of months. It will be awesome. The link to my Soundcloud site is below.

When She Sings

A song for all those people who want their groove back! #iwantmygrooveback

This is a simple song – possibly for Malcolm Turnbull (I think he needs his groove back)

That Monday Feeling

I think we all get that Monday feeling every now and then

 

 

White beaches, blue ocean, palm trees & rum

That’s what I was thinking of when this came to me

 

Freelancer – Just muckin’ About

An instrumental – for now

Freelancer – On the Underground

Another one – On the Underground

 

Vacant staring into space, I’ve been waiting here so long

Worrying about the morning train, the one already gone

Still thinking of that warm bed, and the girl I kissed goodbye

Before heading out once more, under a dull grey sky

 

His steam-pressed pin-stripe suit, on top of dull scuffed shoes

Staring at the black windows, reflections of commuter blues

Trying not to bump anyone, look no one in the eye

In this still and silent herd, as dull and grey as London’s sky

 

Packed in tight

they’re clutching dreams,

Reality –

it’s not what it seems,

they’re nowhere-bound

on the Underground

 

She’s wearing that mini  skirt and boots, they’re sexy, right up her knees

She’s staring at her reflection, I wonder what it is she sees

A meaning to the tedium, of climbing up the corporate steps

Just one within a faceless crowd, adrift within the city’s depths

Freelancer – The Beach

This is a song for all of you who have a bad day at work. Once again the H6 recorder was used.
