    All I Have To Do Is Dream, The Everly Brothers.



    This one goes out to Liz and Jim Beloff, AKA Jumpin' Jim, ukulele advocates and authors of the Daily Ukulele Songbooks. I'm playing this along to my copy of the "to-go" version of the Yellow Book. It's a bit of an abbreviated version of the original. I mostly search for songs/chords online, but sometimes it's nice to thumb through a songbook and find something you typically wouldn't have thought to play. That's the case for me and this song. So I guess this is a thanks to the Beloffs for helping me find more songs to fall in love with.

    Earlier in the Season, Ryan dedicated a song to the supermarket checkout personnel. Well, I had them in mind when I wrote the song I am posting here.

    We have been applauding the medical staff every evening here in Catalonia and while that was deserved, the supermarket and grocery store checkout folk have also been at great risk from contamination over the last two months. They do a thankless task and in some places are tightly controlled as to what they can do and say.

    So my dedication is to all the check out staff in the world.

    Hope you enjoy:

    The greatest spur to a song writer is to have an audience. I am so grateful to those of you who always listen to my songs here.

    I am also grateful to the organisers of FAWM (February Album Writing Month) which provides me with a "hit" of song writing adrenalin every February. This year, I was on fire, producing 30 songs over the month and co-writing on a few more. I intend to use this week to showcase some of them.

    So, I have dedicated this video to the Organisers of FAWM... Next time I'll dedicate it to all of you regular listeners here on the Seasons.

    Incidentally, we are a bit like the orchestra on the Titanic here. We are merrily playing on while the threat of imminent sinking of the Seasons lies over our heads.

    I have just started a new thread to see if we can get some more concrete proposals for a lifeboat, when (not if) the good ship SOTU goes down.

    Meanwhile, here is my second offering this season: It was inspired by someone setting "Copper" as the theme we had to write songs about:

    Thanks so much, Gina; it's good to see that you have returned to the Seasons. Stay safe - we've still got our challenges.

    a haiku, for our haiku-loving host, and also dedicated to all the little creatures who have been making the most of quieter days and nights to fill the air with song...



    listen to the birds singing
    their voices fill the night
    as they wait, like me, for dawn

    a cover of "dime western" by screaming trees. my pal leigh recommended i check out the album ("dust"), that this song is from. this is dedicated to her and to everyone who introduces me to wonderful new (to me!) music, pretty much every day, here on the seasons, over on youtube, and everywhere
