So, what are your plans for this one? Anything?
Thanks.

yes, posted it there too, but as you guys had offered some good advice, wanted to post here too.

Well, I've uploaded it to the BBC Introducing site, so hoping it gets played. I have had 2 out of 4 played on a couple of BBc stations so far. As it's about depression and it's mental Health Awareness Week in two weeks, I'm hoping it will.

Other than that, just hope someone hears it and likes it and asks me to write something for them for a bit of cash. But, i know this is s slim possibility. I will contact a few publishers again soon, once I have another track finished.

8th track from my upcoming CD "Bananas Crackers And Nuts"

I'm beginning to think I can write just about anything. From boogie to bugs to a tear jerker.

He Loved Me

The night has come
And there's no one around
He was some one
But he's not to be found

He loved me
He loved me
But he left me alone
He loved me
He loved me
But I lie here a stone

I don't know why
That it ended this way
Now I just cry
It's the same everyday

Repeat Chorus

What can I say
He's just some guy
I'll love again someday
But for now I'll just cry

Repeat Chorus

He loved me
He loved me
He left me
Alone

9th and title track from my upcoming CD "Bananas Crackers And Nuts"

I was going to go hog wild on this one but decided to pull the reigns in just a little bit. It's still out there.

Bananas Crackers And Nuts

It isn't real I know it
If it's alive I'll grow it
Hallucinations haunt me
The crazy people taunt me

My mind is going crazy
It's not because I'm lazy
It's just that there's a reason
It goes beyond the season

Bananas crackers and nuts
Bananas crackers and nuts

Soon they will send me packing
Though common sense I'm lacking
It doesn't matter really
I'm not all touchy feely

Bananas crackers and nuts
Bananas crackers and nuts

Lines in the Sand


Verse 1
Hello, goodbye my old friend
So good to see you...and talk again.
Years have passed and our old lives have gone away.
Cafe closed/ stories told/ but I want to stay. I want to stay

Chorus
Would you tell me the truth
If i opened up to you and let you see
Would you trust my twisted ways
Even on your darkest days, you'll see

Verse 2
Hear the tale of a lonely weary soul
Changed from fact to fiction better left untold
LINES IN THE SAND tell us more than I should know
Trust in fate and let the worry be...just let it go.

Chorus
Would you tell me the truth
If i opened up to you and let you see
Would you trust my twisted ways
Even on your darkest days, you'll see

Cool song, BeerHunter. The lyrics are cryptic. It's like there's so much more to the story that's not being said. I like it.

I don't post a whole lot, but a few months ago you helped me over in the Newbie Engineering forum regarding an old 16 track tape that I wanted to get transferred to digital. Got that done! Thanks.

So, here's my latest. "I'm Nuts About You." Not so cryptic. Just fun. Critiques welcomed!

This one really got my foot tapping. Reminds me of the 60s. Almost like early Beatles or even 70s Ruttles.

Like it. Great job!

10th track from my upcoming CD "Bananas Crackers And Nuts"

This is one of those rare songs that I do once in a while where I actually write the song completely in my head before I ever sit in front of the keyboard. Of course, when I do that, getting Vocaloid to sing it just right is a total PITA.

Turned this into an epic production for the finale. It's about as over the top country/rock/pop as you can get.

The Cornfield

Mama used to sing me the sweetest songs
But mama didn't hang around too long
Daddy took her away
To the cornfield the other day

She never came back and daddy disappeared
I always thought that seemed just a little weird
But I never said a word
Twas the last thing I ever heard

Until late one night
When the moon was shining bright
And mama walked into the room
Drinking whiskey and riding her broom and she said

Hide this gun before the law does come
Cause they're never gonna find your daddy son
I planted him in the cornfield with the scarecrows
He tried to do me in but I took that grin
And wiped it off his face with a fifth of gin
Yeah that's the way the story goes
Planted him in the cornfield with the scarecrows

Repeat Pre-Chorus and Chorus To Fade

11th track from my upcoming CD "Bananas Crackers And Nuts"

This one is my own concoction.

Electronic Drums
Synth Bass
Bansuri
Sitar
30 Piece Persian Strings
70 Piece American String Section

I call it Ethnic Electronic Folk. But I honestly have no idea what it is.

One of the strangest pieces on this CD.

New Moon Old Sky

New moon old sky
Cold truth men lie
Dark souls they cry
Black holes will die

New moon old sky
Real soon fly by
My crime ask why
Your time to die

12th track from my upcoming CD "Bananas Crackers And Nuts"

I went minimalist country rock on this one.

Drums
Bass
Double Track Rhythm Guitar
Lead Guitar
Vocal

And that's it. Really bare bones on this one.

Another Notch On My Gun

Big Jim came into town
Bad blood was bout to go down
Six guns at dawn with the crows
We know how that story goes

And now the duel it is done
I'd like to say it was fun
To watch the skunk try to run
Another notch on my gun

More came to test my nerve
I guess that they hadn't heard
Some guys they'll just never learn
And so another one burns

Repeat Chorus 2x
