Maybe We Could Write Letters

Yesterday, Padre Mickey posted a song from A Cruel Hoax called God In The Doorway, which he has posted up on The You Tubes. This made me realize I should stop being so damn lazy and post some of the songs I recorded back in the day up on The You Tubes as well.

This first song is titled Maybe We Could Write Letters. I went all Prince and stuff in the recording studio and played all the instruments, except well... I'm not Prince. The bass line is "borrowed" from Booker T. and the MG's Time Is Tight and the lyrics are kinda sorta like Prince's When You Were Mine, which is to say it's kinda sorta a clean version of Cee Lo Green's F*#k You, except when it's not, and it was recorded twenty five years earlier, so at least Mr. Green can't sue me.

All modesty aside, I'm proud of this and I'd like to know what y'all think. I'm going to put it up on Facebook as well.

¡Qué bueno! I've always liked this song, but my favorite from this session is "Veteran's Day" which is also my favorite of all the songs you've written.

That's a good one, too! I also have the Latin flavored version of Reconsidering Our Love and Old Fashioned Girl. These and others will find their way to The You Tubes in the fullness of time.

I think I helped out on a few of those.
