Try Again The Best You Can

The lyrics to this song are from a postcard dated 1965-1966, where John Lennon wrote lyrics to a song that he never recorded. I read about it a couple of years ago and wrote music to go with the lyrics. This is how it turned out. [more inside]

There Goes The Sun

Here Comes the Suck--The sun is gone and nothing good will ever happen again. Everything has diminished, but DMelanogaster and I are up for the challenge.

Eleanor Rigby

I've was in a bit of a Beatles mood last weekend, and recorded this as well as my previous post of "And Your Bird Can Sing". It's been fun to redo the songs with my arsenal of sampled orchestra, etc. I'm not the greatest singer, but I've learned a lot listening to the original, and working with my own voice.

I Don't Want To Spoil The Party

When my daughter was 6 we had fun recording a Beatles tune. 6 years later I have a 6 year son who also loves the Beatles.

I'm Looking Through You (Beatles cover)

So scody had a medical adventure today, which got me thinking about how awesome scody is and how much I enjoyed hanging out with her and being music dorks in LA last fall, and this is one of the songs I remember really enjoying during our drunken singalongery. [more inside]

Norwegian Wood

When I'm in a prolonged songwriting funk - which I am now - it can sometime take a cover of a favorite tune to snap me out of it. Let's hope this does. [more inside]

Goodnight, Dear

I started writing songs on ukulele about a year ago after giving up on the banjo. This is the sort of quaint, happy vibe that I like hearing with the uke. And yes, Paul was my favorite Beatle. [more inside]

If I Fell

Beatles cover recorded with my 6 year old daughter a few years back. Voice is a bit pitchy throughout but give me a break, I was only 40 at the time.

Twist and Shout [The Beatles]

Continuing with the theme from yesterday, (and as promised), here's my version of "Twist and Shout." Is it any good? That's for you to decide. I hope it is. Perhaps "I'll Get You" is next?

Hold Me Tight [The Beatles]

In hono(u)r of the anniversary of the nucleus of the Beatles coming together, I bring you a cover of a song that both Lennon and McCartney derided as not all that good, but I always kinda liked. Maybe tomorrow, I'll upload my version of "Twist and Shout." :-)

Sgt. Pepper 2.0

A parody of A Day in the Life, penned earlier today by the highly overrated gentleman known as It's Raining Florence Henderson in response to disturbing revelations. Apologies to John. Paul can stuff it.

"Borderline/Norwegian Wood"

I'm singing and playing the Reggie Lucas-written hit off Madonna's first album, but I just threw in George Harrison's wistfully lilting lick on the Beatles' "Revolver" classic for fun.
