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.

Junior Chills – Father Told Me

Father Told Me

‘Father Told Me’ was wrote following the birth of my first child in June 2016. At the time I was completely overwhelmed by the birth and wanted to reflect on my own father’s role with the birth of me. So, with that in mind, it is both a song about my father and what I hope to achieve in my new role as a father…

The song looks at different scenarios a person could face in their life such as remembering the first time they counted to ten, riding their bicycle, going to mass, and growing up. I don’t think I have posted lyrics to my song online before but here they are in case you want to take a wee read:

V. Can I get Amen if I’m not from this place? Blessed myself on Tuesday, on Friday I rest. Of all these things remember, my father told me so. Do the best you can son, in the boat you have to row.

V2. Counted one time to ten, thought I had it sussed. Remember feeling proud when my teacher did cuss. One night in mid December, my father told me so. Do the best you can son, in the boat you have to row.

V3. One day I rode my bike farther than I saw. The way my mum reacted I must have broke the law. When you’re young and tender, my father told me so. Do the best you can son, now in the boat you go.

V4. Wife she then gave birth. Family now to raise. Took like duck to water it never did feel strange. Their rock and their defender, my father told me so. Do the best you can son, in the boat you have to row.

V5. Now i’m reaching 80. Children have left home. Only got one fear son, and that’s to die alone. I’m old I’ll not surrender, my father told me so. Do the best you can son, in the boat you have to row.

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 SoundCloud

 

Junior Chills SoundCloud Page

I had set up a SoundCloud page for Junior Chills a few months ago in order to register for the Battle of the Bands competition we entered. Unfortunately this fell by the wayside as I wanted to concentrate on creating our own blog page where we could upload our songs along with a blurb about the thought process behind the songs. Fortunately I have just been reminded by a very kind blogger about the power of using SoundCloud for people to hear our songs…it’s all well and good creating a wee music video to go along with the song but people may never get the chance to view it and simply want to hear the song. As such I have updated our SoundCloud page with our music and intend to upload both a YouTube and SoundCloud link to relevant posts in the future…

I think the most frustrating thing about SoundCloud is the inability to upload songs straight from the mobile app. It takes a bit more time sending the song through to my email address or saving it onto the cloud and then uploading them all via a laptop computer – it would be great if SoundCloud could sort this one out…if they’re listening!! Haha

Nevertheless it is an excellent site which hopefully will allow me to reach more listeners who may appreciate the songs which we create. Here is a few of our songs….please visit our SoundCloud page to hear more: https://soundcloud.com/junior-chills-official
