Batphone

Acoustic version of Arctic Monkey’s Batphone. So far removed from their song but sure….

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)

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 – 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!!
