Junior Chills – The Auld Triangle (Cover)

The Auld Triangle

Knowing that I could never replicate Luke Kelly’s unreal rendition of The Auld Triangle, I tried to cover the song as best as I could. It is pretty far removed from Luke Kelly’s version, hopefully in a good way. I threw a few chords together and sang the lyrics as best as I could…I didn’t even attempt to sing it like Luke Kelly!!

Brendan Behan, the Irish poet,¬†wrote The Auld Triangle. I think other than this song, the best thing I have heard about / from Behan was that apparently when asked what he was doing in Canada he said that he saw a sign saying ‘Drink Canada Dry’ and wanted to give it a go. Fuckin’ love that story!

Anyway…Here is my version of The Auld Triangle.

I hope you like it.

Junior Chills – Far From The Road

Far From The Road (original)

This is a song I wrote several months ago in an attempt to compose a simplistic song. Very basic chord progressions and lyrics seemed to fit together well so I thought it was a good time to put it online.

Bit of a stretch vocally but sure if you don’t try, you won’t know…

I suppose, looking at it, Far From The Road is a bit of a romantic number. It discusses how places link memories, how affection can make everything else seem irrelevant…quite like Blanche I suppose with her quote ‘ There are things that happen between a man and woman in the dark that sort of make everything else seem unimportant’.

Just a thought. Just a song.

I hope you like it.

Smokers’ Eye

Junior Chills – Smokers’ Eye (original)

I haven’t been as active as I have wanted to be in the last few weeks due to on-going work within my home but as this work is now in the final stages I do have that extra bit of time (and quiet) to put songs back up.

This is a new song which I wrote two¬† nights ago…

I like to think of it as a song about people who like to fix things which are never broke and in the process break things which didn’t need fixed. I suppose it is also a reflection of drinking and smoking habits especially the ever lurking smokers’ eye which burns the retina out of your head…the next time you’re in a smoking area in a bar look out for the poor son-of-a-bitch that’s just been served a dose of smokers’ eye. Brutal!

The song also features a card game which I know of as ‘Jack Change It’. Laziness has got the better of me here so I will link you to Wikipedia to read about how the game is played if you are interested: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Change_It

Anyway. Here it is. I hope you like it!!
