about

This is a collection of things I’ve done outside of my albums over the years. Some are remixes, or one-off tracks I’ve done for compilation albums, magazine CDs and other projects. Some are just weird musical experiments that came out better than expected. But there’s a story behind every song.

Track Name: Fragile

Like tears from a star

On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are

Track Name: Red Dress
She puts a red dress on
She's got a red dress on

Worry, Worry, Worry
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

And she moves just like you want her to move

Track Name: Brand New '64 Dodge
The money comes out of Dad’s billfold/the hankies come out of Mom’s purse/The engine hardly makes a sound even when you put it in reverse/It’s got a push-button transmission,hardtop convertible, 4-door/It’s November of ‘63 and the brand new Dodge is a ‘64

And we’re driving slow down Main Street/I hear the asphalt and gravel crunch/Church is finally over and we’re going to have our Sunday lunch/And later I will play football with my buddies down in park/Later I’ll dream about my girlfriend as I lie alone in the dark.

She’s got short red hair and blue eyes/and her swimsuit’s also blue/ and her little brother is retarded/ but Jesus loves him, too/And Jesus loves our president/even though he is a Catholic/There’s a lot for a boy to think about as he walks along the railroad track

And my sister won’t get carsick ‘cause we’re going only half a mile/and the car still has that new car smell and dad looks like he might smile/and the world is big and full of Autumn and I’m hungry as can be/and we’re driving in our brand new ‘64 Dodge, November 1963
November
