The Bring It All Back Session
This was basically a practice session. Three songs I’m working on: Robert Palmer’s “Blackmail,” from “Sneakin’ Sally Through the Alley“ (debut, 1974), S Club’s “Bring it All Back“ (Debut, 1999) and UB40’s “Bring Me Your Cup” from 1993’s standout “Promises and Lies.”
I was twelve when the Robert Palmer album came out! I was always an early adopter of cool stuff! The song “Blackmail” was written by Palmer and Lowell George; George would become one of my musical heroes! It was down and dirty disco rock, unabashed, surrounded by girls in short dresses – Continue reading “Blackmail, Bring It All Back, Bring Me Your Cup (Music Videos)”

This band proves trouble can be a lot of fun! The biggest trouble is caused near the end, when a hell of a slick red, white and blue double-drummer double-solo pops up out of nowhere! This song has its own soul, I think, living in so many of us from our younger years. It was always my favorite from the ABB. This music video should be all the trouble you need today!

Indian Sunset (John/Taupin)
This is a beautiful, rambling ballad typical of some of the cultural topical stuff Elton John produced in the 1970’s. This is from “Madman Across The Water” (1971), words by Bernie Taupin. It’s about an Indian who finds Continue reading “Indian Sunset (John/Taupin), Mark Urso”
I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
I got to learn to write a proper line
Locomotives are always good
And a harmonica can set the mood
But ain’t nobody going to listen If you’re complaining all the time!
Another original (well, mostly!) I hope you enjoy! Continue reading “Wrote This Song Instead”
