Videos on Mondays and Thursdays

Posted on 12 Apr 2013

So I’ve decided to put up an original song every Monday and a cover song every Thursday. With the amazing names “Original Song Mondays” and “Cover Song Thursdays”. The first two of which can be seen in the posts below. This’ll keep me getting the songs out to you guys and hopefully production values will keep getting better as I learn more bout video. If there’s a particular original song of mine or a cover song that you think I might click with, that you’d like to hear then do let me know, thanks.


Four and Twenty Cover Song

Posted on 11 Apr 2013

So the last video I made was nice and upbeat for spring, one of my own called Spring’s Alive. I just started strumming this song the other day as I was in the tuning. It’s a cover by Stephen Stills called Four and Twenty, and it’s kinda menacing in a lovely way and in contrast to the last video. It’s been a while since I played it and I almost forgot the words.

I’m also formalizing a two-video-a-week system by releasing an original song on a Monday and a cover song on thursday. So I’ve just decided it’ll be Original Song Mondays and Cover Song Thursdays! Share it with friends and do the “like” stuff. Thanks!


Spring’s Alive – New song for you.

Posted on 8 Apr 2013

Hello everybody and hope you’re well. After about a month of having a cold and flu and the like and seeing as though Spring still hasn’t decided to commit itself, I recorded a video of a newish song of mine Spring’s Alive. It was inspired by an email I got from Birdwatch Ireland last year entitled Spring Alive and the song came out of that as they were talking about when the first swallows would arrive back to Ireland. Here’s to good health and some south westerly warm winds! The lyrics are below if you prefer to have a read as well.

Spring’s Alive
I’m waiting for the first swallow
of the spring of the spring
to return to return with a song to sing.

I’m waiting for that treasured light
of the Sun of the Sun
to rise up to rise up
Like a shadow gun

Oh and I can Feel those rays
Shining down on better days
My friend now that you’ve arrived

Spring’s Alive
Spring’s Alive

I’ve had those days where torment rules
thought I was mad
Now I’m glad
To keep on with a song cause it’s not so bad

I know we’re like a weighing scales
it’s a balancin’ act
to keep flat
I am here all through the year Don’t forget that

Oh and there’ll be no delays
When you call on me always
My friend now that you’ve arrived
Spring’s Alive Spring’s Alive

Oh and I can Feel those rays
Shining down on better days
My friend now that you’ve arrived

Spring’s alive
Spring’s Alive
And I feel fine

And I feel fine
