It’s always a privilege collaborating with Geetha Prod’hom  As I once wrote a while back she’s, “The talented lady of more artistic skills and genres than I could ever count.”


If you don’t know of her already, do check out the multi-faceted WP blog of GEETHA  – there’s a whole gallery of great poetry, art and other genres there. It’s well worth visiting and following.


Anyhow, here’s Geetha’s new song composed from her breathtaking lyric re my POETRY TO SONG product called ‘I Walk With You’. The finished song now belongs to its creator, Geetha. I suggest headphones at the ready.


Thanks for the opportunity to have worked with you again, Geetha.

Once more I’ve had the privilege of working with Geetha Prod’hom, the talented lady of more artistic skills and genres than I could ever count, per my product, POETRY TO SONG


This time her brand new song, ‘I Wanna Be With You’. To say I had magic words to work with, an understatement.


I don’t think I need say anymore. Her words (words that have that rare special feeling); her song, speaks for itself. Thanks for the opportunity to have worked with you, Geetha.


Time for the headphones, here’s Geetha’s song.

If you don’t follow Greetha’s blog already, you can find her at GEETHA’S BLOG I strongly recommend you pay her a visit.

JUST HEART TO HEART

‘Just Heart to Heart’, a second commission per my  POETRY TO SONG  product, from the talented lady of many skills, working across any number of genres, who goes by the name Geetha Prod’hom.


Sometimes, when working on a new song, the words get to speak aloud, telling me they want to be dressed in the music rather than share the stage. This was one of those. After a chat, the words and me settled on a cloak with an orchestral pattern. They’re rare things and I think that’s why I enjoyed the project like I did. Geetha certainly has a strong relationship with her words. Here’s the new song that now belongs to Geetha. I hope you enjoy.



That’s not all. When Geetha posts on her blog, you don’t just get the words, you also find she adds audio readings. I’ve chosen two examples here – in fairness I was spoiled for choice.  First, with the wonderful French accent that works for even those of us who aren’t fluent in French. Les Cadavres Exquis Exquisite Corpses


Next, Plains of the Free Lie

CLASSICAL GUITAR ADAPTATION

DSC08416@0.5x

When it comes to classical guitar I like to keep my hand in but often other things get in the way. Not this time though. I made a new classical guitar adaptation of my song ‘Pain’  from my ‘Dream Rescuer’ album.


Press the play button to listen to the new adapted rendition. It’s only 1.51 minutes long. I hope you enjoy;


If you want to make a comparison with the original, here is that original – which is available to buy and download at BANDCAMP ;


Here’s the ‘Created Guitar Tab’/’Score-sheet’ for any musician that would like to learn/play along:

If it helps get the flavour of the adaption here’s the original lyric;

The nights are getting longer
Your days are drawing in
You lost the dice roll this time
In a game you could never win


Guilt is loves shadow yet we never forget
From the corner of my eye your silhouette
It was your time and my tears feel like rain
I traded my grief to end all your pain


The game is now over
I’m glad that we played
The wounded heart full of sorrow
Nothing betrayed


Now its official
Now its no dream
Always remember nothing is as it seems
It was your time
This short songs for you
To help ease this
Pain

IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE

george‘Five Albums Later’

When Paul McCartney had his dream in which the melody for what was to be his classic song ‘Yesterday’ came to him he had no words to start with. None. When he woke up the next morning all he could do was to throw any old words that fitted the melody at it. Hence the first version he called ‘Scrambled Eggs’. It went like this; “Scrambled eggs/Oh my baby how I love your legs/Not as much as I love scrambled eggs…”. Not that I am or ever will be a genius like McCartney but I’ve just done the self-same thing – throwing words that matched the melody I’m playing around with at the keyboard. When I’d finished I thought one or two of the verses might make the cut. These are those random words.

 IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE

(working title)

Epic nightmares deserve a soundtrack

Every outlaw needs a knife

The oceans pray for plastic islands

Every liar needs a wife

 

This old worlds a contradiction

When every loss is some fools gain

I’ve given up on people

Given up on that tired refrain

 

In the middle of nowhere

Wearing my heart upon my sleeve

I chase the echoes of the soft riffs

Writing words I’ll not believe

 

You’ve a magic wand you tell me

Makes all your wishes become true

I watch, I think, I listen

And write all my songs for you

 

You went looking for the stranger

Swapped your demons for a rose

Followed your lord and master to some altar

Gave that saint a bloody nose

 

No love song can be sacred

When words don’t mean a thing they say

No open door to paradise

That’s just the price we have to pay

 

Today, an eerie piece I composed called ‘Dead Rain’. I think it fits the mood of my words. I hope you enjoy;

A WARNING IS NOT A PROMISE

the nothing‘Dreaming Colours the Daylight Steals’

Last week: The bloke at the top of the steps up to the library told me that the world would end tomorrow. He pointed out that love and hate will have nowhere to hide anymore and that there will never be another new day.

I told him that I never knew that. There was nothing on the news about it. It was only when I asked him how he got to know all about the end of the world happening tomorrow he just tapped the side of his nose with his forefinger and said, ‘inside info’.

The shirt he was wearing was The Arsenal 2010 away kit. The yellow one with the regular ‘Fly Emirates’ printed on it. XXXL by the look of it. It was only when I said, ‘You support The Arsenal?’ he replied saying, ‘How do you know that?’ I never answered. Stating the obvious is something I try not to do, even though I wanted to say, ‘inside info’.

As I finally walked past him toward the library, he called me back. He told me he was sorry and that, “I should have said, ‘my’ world is ending tomorrow, not ‘the’ world. A slip of the tongue.”

A little later, after I’d got a book out of the library on Greek mythology, I got stopped by a woman standing at the top of the steps in exactly the same place the bloke was stood earlier. The bloke himself was nowhere to be seen. She stopped me and asked if I’d seen a big bloke wearing an Arsenal shirt hanging around, “Only I wanted to let him know that a warning is not a promise and that I didn’t mean it when I told him he’d be better off dead.” After that she said, “Don’t I know you?” then asked if I was the bloke who wrote the song ‘Rexie Believes in Magic’  “The one they play a lot in the café up the road. It’s my favourite.”             

I said that that was my song and thanked her for liking it. She said, “Only his name is Rexie; well that’s what I call him. His real name is Rex. If I find him I want to say sorry and that he might feel better about me wishing him dead if he had a listen to the song. Is that OK with you? I just love, love songs.”

“No worries, of course you can. If you’re going to believe in anything it might as well be ‘Magic’. I hope you find him before tomorrow.”

“So do I.”

This week: I checked the ‘Births, Deaths & Marriages’ section of the local newspaper and there was no mention of a big bloke called Rexie – or Rex – reported dead.

The ‘Rexie’ song is from my first album, released in May 2017 called ‘Dream Rescuer’. ‘Rexie’ and the number, ‘Sunlight & The Dust’ are both featured on this album. They were my first curated songs. If you’re interested in this album (or any of my others) the link is below;
