Re: My CD, "Stumbling Towards Happiness"

Hi John ~ I'm looking forward to seeing you in Madison, and I'm looking forward to hearing your entire cd. I hope people here will take some time to listen. I remember listening to some of your songs through here quite some time ago and liked what I heard very much. All the very best to you, John, ...

My CD, "Stumbling Towards Happiness"

Hi! Some of you might remember me, I know I don't hang out here at the Forum as much as I used to. I used to post song lyrics and warn Muddy about not taxing his heart too much when he got upset. Then there was also my open mike performances at the 2004 LC Event, as I've put it, "I was so nervous to...

Re: Where are you Judy, Where are you Anne?

Hi John K, To the best of my knowledge, Anne was the girlfriend of Leonard for whom he wrore the poem "For Anne" - "With Annie gone whose eyes to compare with the morning sun/Not that I did compare, but I do compare now that she's gone" (that, from memory). Judy presumably is Judy Collins. It was a...

Where are you Judy, Where are you Anne?

Hi! I've been working up songs for a project, and looking at lesser or not yet covered versions of Mr. Cohen's work. Much to my surprise, "Love Calls You By Your Name" is not on Jarkko's list, not even once! Ok, so as I'm looking at the lyrics and my approach I'm considering the names "Judy" and "An...

Re: Unholy Alliance, a new song you may like

Hi Lizzy, I knew I was taking a huge risk in the approach to this song, in that she is "starting to heal" through her action, and it might make it sound like I believe that suicide is ok. I do not believe it is, however this isn't a morality piece. I tried to approach the woman's part from her persp...

Unholy Alliance, a new song you may like

Hi - I'm still writing and recording and playing. This past week I wrote a song that is strangely titled "Unholy Alliance" and was musically inspired by the master's "Joan of Arc", so I realized this morning that some of you may enjoy it. The female voice is Lyn Lewis, an Internet friend of mine fro...

February Album Writing Month

Hi - I know I'm not around here too often but here I am today. Last night I finished my second February Album Writing Month (FAWM.org), last year I wrote the 14 songs but this year I wrote and recorded the 14 songs. I think there's only a couple of stinkers and nothing I'm embarrassed by. You may fi...

Re: Documentary that caught my...ummm...eye

Going back to the original topic, I wonder if the person placing the advert realizes how it discriminates against men. Just sayin', I've never met Mr. Cohen much less slept with him, nor have I imagined I was sleeping with him ... but I have "slept" with Leonard's voice in the room. I suppose I coul...

Oh, hi.

I've finally recorded a very rough demo of "Daylight Wasted Time". If you'd like to hear it, here's a link:

Re: Daylight Wasted Time

Thanks for the kind words. One of my goals as a songwriter is to deal with serious emotions in a less than totally serious manner. Over the last few days I've been able to work out the melody in my head, this one was a bit harder than most, usually I hear it as I'm writing but for whatever reason I ...
