This really is way off topic!
« on: July 13, 2020, 16:29:09 »
I'm sure I am not alone when I say that during lockdown I had an unusually large amount of time to indulge in other hobbies that I don't often have time for. In my case one of my hobbies is Music and I took the opportunity to write a song! Being in your mid-fifties and finding yourself back on the dating scene for the first time in a 1/4 of a century can be quite daunting but I took an real life experience and used it to write this song!

It's a comedy song (at least I hope it puts a smile on your face) and I did contemplate putting it in the commercial advertising section but since it's so far off topic as to have absolutely no connection with cars whatsover I hope forumites will tolerate a little indulgence!

Hey Colin, this looks like fun.  I tried the link but Apple does not like me, it seems.  I cannot get it to play at all.

or

Harsh, Peter!

No autotune, and they sound in tune. Guitar work is simple, but clean and clear. There are plenty of one hit wonders out there who have done so much more with so much less...so...

Well done, Colin...

PS. When does the album come out?

Yes Peter, I'm not made of wood you know!

It is a simple song and the first two verses are based on fact but I got a surprise when I was invited to a recording studio by a friend to actually turn it into a proper recording. The are no less than 5 different guitar tracks on the recording none of which are how I would play it on my own!

I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings. Look at it from the positive side: I think I would speak for many UK members who would be sorely disappointed if you did give up your day job...   8)

Last night, the family watched a totally ridiculous, over the top campy (is anything involving Will Ferrell anything different?) new movie (Netflix only) called Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Sagahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurovision_Song_Contest:_The_Story_of_Fire_Saga

So, I say to you Stick--keep up the good work!  You have a chance at a singing career!   :) ;)

Note to AGT Andrew Todd: movie features lovely location shots in Edinburg!!  Places we've been...
