Just Keep Creating

Sooooo….Love the movie Finding Nemo… ‘just keep swimming’, ‘just keep swimming’!!!! This popped into my head today, after a 2-hour long songwriting session, with the infamous lyricist/vocalist Ed Legal.

Here are three video highlights. Please only watch if you want to see raw creativity at inception! This is the raw beginning of the creative process …

Please don’t watch if you are expecting Top 40…

Pull The Pin happened last  10 minutes of session:

Mason Jar  (was a song I wrote called Slept In Days… Ed has come up with something I never could have imagined).

Turn  (a song the Ed magically had lyrics for :))

Was a productive 2 hours 🙂

Cheers,

Wish Upon A Shooting Star

Here is an acoustic original, called Wish Upon a Shooting Star, I have been dabbling with for some time. Started writing this one a few years back, and is based upon the cliche of the wishing we all do; wishing wells, shooting stars, coin ponds, etc. I have the Lyrics posted below the video 🙂 Hope you enjoy!

Wish Upon a Shooting Star Lyrics

Wished upon a shooting star. Hope to make my life better.

Realized it was a plane. 747 feel so lame.

Threw a coin in that pond, bounced right back like a billabong.

Cross my fingers, hope to die, poke a needle in my eye.

Dreams do come true. Just not for me & you.

Dreams do come true. Just not for me, not for me and you.

Threw a dollar in that wishing well, prayed to God there is no hell.

God damn, now I’m broke, little birdie whispered I’m the joke.

Held my breath & wished again for little birdie to be my friend.

Forgot to breathe, and I passed out, right down that wishing well.

Dreams do come true. Just not for me & you.

Dreams do come true. Just not for me, not for me and you.

Dreams do come true. Just not for me & you.

Dreams do come true. Just not for me, not for me and you.

Not The Only One

Was able to get together last week for a 2nd writing session with Ed, from The Midnight Move. After a long hiatus, feels pretty amazing to get back to writing. I’ve always enjoyed just being the rhythm guitarist at times, and especially finding the right groove for a song. Having said that, I feel some wicked back up vocals coming up soon. (Save that for later 🙂

Ed has written some wicked lyrics here. Hope you enjoy & stay tuned…
