The Root Note Heaven

Download The root note heaven 2

There've been a couple instances in my life when there's been bad stuff, like, really super bad stuff. But then outta that bad stuff comes a song, and the song is sort of like God tapping me on the shoulder and saying, yes you're going through a really hard time, but I'm still here.

Damnation Alley

This song's about a bar of soap that talks and is psychic and predicts the future. It's about being damned. 'Course I totally stole the title from this movie from the 80's about nuclear war. I feel a little bad about stealing that particular catch phrase, but then again, I sort of don't care. It's funny how, as I get older, I don't care that much about plagiarism more and more.

Or no, wait, it's not plagiarism. I'm just making a reference to that movie.

The Art of Suffering

Here's another song about suffering. It's a song about life.

I can't remember if I've posted it before or not,  but I'm pretty sure this is the 1st time I've posted this version of it on here.

And They Would Never Stop

This here's a sad song about a laptop computer. It's about a year and a half old, but I didn't get the nerve to publish it till just about now. It's my attempt at techno music. Well, actually, it's my attempt at fusing techno music with regular music. All the drum sounds and stuff are things I sampled and mixed together in SoundEdit. Nifty. The song's called "And They Would Never Stop," although I had considered calling it "Sad Laptop Song."

An Oldie But An Oldie

Download 13 cant have me

I'm not sure if I spelled "oldie" properly. But anyway, that's what this song is. It's 10 years old, yeah. Or, it'll be 10 years old sometime in the fall. It's one of those post-break-up songs. Break-ups can be pretty good inspirations for songs.

Elevator To Hell

Download Elevator to hell

I initially started writing this song way, wayyy, wayyyyyyyyy back in 1993. The thing is, it sounded nothing like how it sounds now, cuz I forgot what it sounded like. At the time, I was going for that shoe-gazing variety of music that some people tended to like so much back then.

So, I re-did it, with sort of a nice, liturgical sound to it. The song's about an elevator that takes you to Hell, and it ain't very clear just how nice, or not-nice, it is to be takin' this elevator that goes to Hell. Well, actually, it doesn's seem all that bad, now that I think of it. It's sort of a Heavenly version of Hell. Really, I should stop blathering now.

Download Broken violin

This song is 13 years old, oh dear lord. 13 years, and it seems like yesterday that I wrote this here song. Actually I have no memory of writing or recording this song in its original incarnation, 13 years ago. But I randomly found it on a tape about a year and a half ago, and thought, wow, I like this song, but I don't like the vocals in the recording. So I re-recorded it today, just for kicks. I mean, I kinda like the old vocals because I sang with some conviction, but it sounded to much like I was trying to sound like David Byrne.

It's a song about a dude, who's kinda lonely, and he cain't find his violin. It's broken. It's a very sad (but upbeat) song.
