Another song with an interesting history. I really don’t remember “writing” this song. It was simply a set of chords I used to jam around with…I’m pretty sure I came up with them sometime not too long after I bought my Moserite which was in 1990. The song never had a title, I never played it live or thought about recording it. I’m not sure if anyone besides myself had ever heard it…though it’s likely I might have played it while someone else was in the room. When I began to realize that I was officially working on a “new CD” my original idea was to call it “The Loneliest Man in Paradise” after a set of lyrics that I wrote in Maui…but I wasn’t having much luck writing music to the words (I did a year later after I bought a Ukelele!) In some moment of inspired sick humor…I thought about calling the CD “Everything I Know About Love” since pretty much every song was about love and/or relationships in some way. So my twisted mind gets working….what if I record that old instrumental….and what if I now call that song “Everything I Know About Love”?
So the decision was made….my final statement on the subject would be lyrical silence, because after 50 years, the truth is…I really don’t know anything.
However, what little I do know about love…. can be found in the eight bars of Rich Brodsky’s amazing, Steve Howe-like guitar solos…..and it’s contained in every note of Samantha Olson’s two heart-wrenching violin solos…
So there you have it…my latest group of songs. If you’ve navigated through all these pages, then you are a true fan and I thank you kindly!!! Cheers!
