This is my great, sweeping ballad … my Piano Man, if you will. Tinged with chili powder. [more inside]
Part of my Old Songs project. A tale of loss and regret told in the manner of a Mexican ragtime cowboy song. [more inside]
A song I wrote back in 1996. Its lyrics draw from images from the Mexican Day of the Dead, which I've always fancied. In particular, I like the small clay dioramas that show scenes of skeletons going about daily activities, such as getting haircuts or riding in cars, and it is those images that fueled this song.

A song for lovely miss V. [more inside]
V never used to believe me I was truly in love with her. She always said one day I'd get my things and disappear into that world I seemed so enamored with. Words couldn't convince her. The song did.
I'm always unsure about posting the songs in languages other than English here, so I'll post this one with the question, would you listen to the song even if you don't understand the lyrics?
