Original Songs

A new song called Never Been Told and an edit of my tribute to Ireland called Ireland Bound:

 

Gold (original)

Gold

I wrote this at the time when Lance Armstrong’s doping incidents all came to light and the subsequent many others who have been exposed. I think the song is sort of  a reflection on that, looking at the person who actually wins the gold despite knowing that they are not worthy of it.

Again a random one.

I hope you like it.

Dusting Off The Guitar

More Music

I got a bit of time to upload some new songs and other ones which I have had the chance to edit. Been a while since I have had the time to do so and it feels good to revisit songs which I haven’t listened to since I recorded them.

So here they are. Ranging from original songs (and an original song / story about the Irish Famine) and a few cover songs too.

I hope you like them.

Rumours (original song about the Irish Famine)

Last Night (acoustic cover of The Strokes song)

 

I’ll Meet You There One Day (original song for Palestine)

 

There Won’t Be Many Coming Home (Roy Orbison cover)

Hello (Adele Cover)

Rust (original)

Rivers Run Clear (original)

Creativity Sensitivity

 

Exam procrastination has drove me to record and put up a few songs that have been neglected. Here is another one…

Probably going to regret not doing more…but here’s an xray of a skull so you know my head is in the right place.

Enjoy.

On The Lonesome Road (original album)

Junior Chills – On The Lonesome Road (original album)

With the onset of fatherhood and a return to education I haven’t had the time I once had to regularly update my WordPress page. However I have been endlessly writing new songs to keep ‘stress’ at bay. I find that writing my songs are the easiest part but finding time to record them is quite tedious. Nevertheless I got a few hours today to upload not just one song but a handful which I have put into a wee album.

The songs explore a lot of different topics well the usual ones that I explore anyway. Although I love playing all the songs I write, I particularly enjoy Daydreaming, Stress and Ireland Bound.

So check it out. Give it a listen to. Find out a song which sticks out for you and let me know. Any and all feedback is greatly received and appreciated.

Hope you enjoy it.

Junior Chills – Salmons’ Dream

Salmons’ Dream

Very random title. Very random song. I think I have always been fascinated with the bullshit theory that fish have only a three second memory…I think this could have been spawned from a fishing trip where I caught a fish with a hook in the eye, took it off, threw it back in and then caught the same dumb ass mutilated fish again…which I then brought home because being Irish I thought there was an old proverb somewhere that said ‘Catch a fish and give it to the sea, catch it again and you’ll get cash money moneeeeee’…I made that up…

I don’t think that they do have three second memories. But do they dream? What if they did dream? Would a salmon dream about walking down the road…this reminds me of Billy Connolly’s joke about how Wildebeast don’t know that they’re wildebeasts because there are no mirrors in the Serengeti Plain…this salmon in the story doesn’t think he’s a fish…he thinks he’s one of those walking things dandering about on the shore line!!

Again it is just a wee song that I put together…I have never dreamt that I have been a salmon so it’s unrealistic that the salmon would dream of being us…why would they? Christ, it’s just a song!!

I hope you like it.

Update – Remember, you’ll be in the ground long enough!!

Junior Chills – Spoiler

Although I think that the video lends a lot of weight to the song, I have uploaded the mp3 of ‘Spoiler’ to SoundCloud for everyone to listen to.

I have put 19 songs online since February which is a lot more than I had anticipated doing. I wanted to have a routine of putting a song online every week but that quickly went by the way side as different events cropped up which some of my songs related to and I wanted to take advantage of this. Who wants to listen to a song about Lent at Halloween time anyway? Haha

I suppose I will just keep on putting up songs until I have no more original ones left to put online. Maybe mix it up with a few more cover songs. Hopefully get the bass and electric incorporated into songs as I go along.

I’ll keep on going.

Sure I will be in the ground long enough.

Junior Chills – The Thief

Junior Chills – The Thief

‘The Thief’ is a song I wrote a few years ago and one which I always wanted people to hear. I had it lined up as one of my set list songs for a busking competition in Belfast and literally, as I went to play it, I was told that my time was up…no more songs for me!!

To be honest I had sort of forgotten about the song since then and came across it today as I was flicking through my song book. I know the previous few songs I have put up have been historically based (and linked maybe) but now I will return to playing just my normal songs…for a while at least.

‘The Thief’ is a song a person who not only steals objects but other peoples’ feelings too.

I hope you like it.
