    Hello everyone! For the last week I've been singing several hours every day and not getting nearly as much sleep as I should have. My daughter and I just got home and I had only about 4 hours of sleep last night, and then sang for another couple of hours this morning before coming home. I will be posting some videos on my youtube channel in the next several days if anyone wants to hear what I was up to (all gospel a capella music). I did write a song for this season during my free time. I tried to write one that sounded like an old-timey crooner song from the 1930s or whatever.



    I say hello, she says goodbye
    She smiles so sweetly, and leaves me to cry
    I say hello, and she says goodbye

    She says goodbye when I say hello
    When I arrive, it's time for her to go
    She says goodbye when I say hello

    Every time I try to woo her
    She has someplace else to be
    I try so hard to pursue her
    But she avoids me so successfully

    She says goodbye when I say hello
    She's disappearing just as I show
    She says goodbye when I say hello

    Every time I try to woo her
    She has someone else to see
    If she makes me any bluer
    I'll be as blue as I can possibly be

    I say hello, she says goodbye
    Is it a wonder I've a tear in my eye?
    I say hello and she says goodbye
    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    Song number three for me and one I approached with some trepidation due to the challenging nature of the vocals. I love it so much though.

    This song by Harry Nilsson appeared on the children's album "The Point" My cover is based on a rare televised performance by Nilsson from 1971 - arguably the best extant recording of it. I encourage you to listen to the original performance if you can find it. It's a masterful performance.

    I had to capo this one because my voice is too worn out to hit the low notes. I checked the playlist and I don't think anyone has done it yet, even though it seemed like an obvious song to me. Trying to sing like Faron Young is really hard.

    Liz,
    I finally had a chance to myself for a few minutes to bring you a couple of children songs. I found both songs on Songs from Music Theropy Tunes by Margie on YT. She has a whole playlist of Hello and Goodbye songs. This was the quickest route for me. These songs are children's songs and they are good for you children's librarians or children's music leaders.

    Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.

    My mom recently moved out of her home on a street where my family lived for 75 years. (Before you ask, yes I need to rewrite the bridge to make that clearer.) Here's a song about the three generations of my family who lived on Belle Avenue.

    Okay, I finally did one.

    I recorded this on my cell phone yesterday (7/8/2017) while performing at one of the local Farmers' Markets. What could go wrong?

    * There was a thunderstorm in progress.
    * I forgot my lead sheet
    * I had never played this song in public
    * I had only played this on Thursday for the first time ever.
    * The seams of my new pop-up canopy leaked.
    * Cars were driving by less than 8 feet away (at least they were slow, and there were no puddles...)
    * Did I mention the thunderstorm? It was a little distracting at times...

    I actually edited the first 30 seconds off of the video... where I was trying to remember what key to play in, so that I could actually sing; otherwise, this is a one-and-done.

    I hope you enjoy!
