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)
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.
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.
Writing music and playing songs is a massive ‘de-stressing’ tool for me as well as being a great hobby. However watching movies is where my passion lies so I thought I would mix the two of these together and see what I could achieve.
Something which happens a lot of the time to me, especially on social media sites, is seeing spoilers about movies and television shows before I have had a chance to view them. This song is a satirical approach to this where I reveal the spoilers of famous movies and television shows which I have seen…I am not too sure if I will put up a spoiler alert before anyone views it…fuck it! I have had things spoiled too many times!! Time for a tiny bit of revenge!!
In particular I reveal a few things about:
The Running Man
Game of Thrones
I have tried my best to create a music video for the song based on the lyrics and have put in clips from associated movies. I am particularly proud of adding in footage of Bishop and Ash from the Alien franchise when I sing about my milk being all sour…movie buffs will understand the connection!!
Anyway, here it is. My ‘Spoiler’ song and associated video.
