Following are links to some of the songs I've written. I'll be creating, uploading, and linking to more pages as time permits.
All of these ditties were written years and years ago. Nothing new. I lost my muse, I guess, and don't know where to find it.
When I told Brother Gene that I was going to put these old songs on my site, he gently chided me, "Resting on your laurels, huh?" But hey, maybe by revisiting these ditties I'll be able to find some new motivation and inspiration in the near future. It could happen.
The following titles link to pages that contain a personal preface for each song, lyrics, and links to lead sheets for those who might want to read the music.
(NOTE: The picture above is almost-totally bogus. That's Katie's face alright. But I composited it over another pic. Katie's last name is not Cohen. And although one may exist somewhere, the "Caffeine A-GoGo" cited here is entirely fictitious. Call me "Mister Guilty." — BD)
(ANOTHER NOTE: No, I'm not a singer, musician, or record producer. Still, when I decided that I'd like to have demo recordings of some of the songs I've written, the most practical course to that end seemed to be that I should try to sing, orchestrate [via my computer], and produce homemade recordings myself — all of the preceding disclaimers notwithstanding. So, anyway, starting in the Spring of 2009 and continuing on through the remainder of the year, I've worked on recording, editing, and mixing song demos — not performance demos or commercially-viable productions, just a songwriter's song demos. After calling it a wrap on each individual recording, I've posted a link on the appropriate song page so that visitors who desire to do so may freely download and listen to an MP3 file of the song. Links for available songs are posted toward the bottoms of song pages, immediately below the lyrics. Whether one can tolerate or even enjoy listening to these recordings, or not, well, that's a matter of taste. But to my mind [and ears, too], these recordings have come out much better than I would have first imagined. Really. So, hey.... Oh, and just as an obscure historical note, if and when these recordings are released as a collection, it could well be the first and only music album in which the singer/bandleader/engineer/producer wore no pants during the hundreds of hours it took to produce all the tracks in the album. I'm just sayin'.... — BD)
