Christmas Songs


These songs sound terrible from my computer speakers, but halfway decent on headphones. If anyone wants, I can put up the other five or six songs I recorded, but they're generally as good as these songs or worse.

A Hall & Oates parody:

And a similarly bad original:

Christmas Promo

It's that time of year again. Skip to 4:20 for a sweet MIDI I did like 6 years ago and a list of "singles?" from Xmas2011. Replete with bad covers of Styx, BTO, and H&O, this will be a serving of cheer not to be missed. Christ-missed!

VIdeo Post

It's been a long time since I posted a song. I just got my built-in computer microphone to kind of work, so I threw this one together. Will it take me six months to post another one? Probably.

I started doing a Lou Reed 'New York' thing, and then wanted some brass. I wish my other horns worked, but this is a start. Also, I got a little overzealous with the drum machine.

Spring Break

No more law school for a little while means that I don't feel too guilty taking a few hours out of the day to record. Ironically, I just purchased a drum machine, and the first thing I did was write a waltz...
A while ago I wrote that I wished for something (though I don't remember what) and then wrote "if wishes were fishes, then I would have two. Two tasty fishes for tasty fish stew". Recently recalling that line, I decided to make a song out of it.

C-F-C-F-G-C
C-[C-Am-C]-G-F- C

If wishes were fishes, then I would have two
Two tasty fishes for tasty fish stew
I'd eat all my fishes and drink all my wine
If wishes were fishes were mine.

If wantings were hauntings, then I would have two
Two helpful hauntings to watch after you
Two diligent hauntings to make sure you're fine
If wantings were hauntings were mine

If earnings were yearnings, then I would have two
A house and a job to take care of you
An earning of more than enough to get by
If yearnings were earnings were mine

But wishes aren't fishes, and so I have none
All that I want is all that we've done
And I just can't wait to see what we do
With wishes and fishes and you.

Deep Cut #1

Haven't got a chance to record lately, but maybe I'll end up taking advantage of the incoming weather this week.
I've been listening to some of my old stuff. I wrote this one almost two years ago. I was definitely going for a Dire Straits meets Todd Rundgren sound. A little heavy on the lead guitar and terrible drumming, but it's not all that bad.
