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.
