Songs

I write songs and have been doing so for the past 25 years or so.  I will admit my production is lacking and my voice would be leveled by Simon with one glance, but I love to write songs and attempt to sing and produce them.  Needless to say all the vocals you hear are mine and the accompaniment is created by me (sometimes with a little help from an old drum machine).  Enjoy!

It Is What It Is

This song was inspired by one of those “cliche sayings” that I absolutely disagree with.  How can it be “it is what it is?”  I have some hand in changing it, don’t I?  I refuse to give up so easily.  Listen to the song by clicking here.

Do The Disco

What if one of those kids on the disney channel that’s mega-popular today and gone tomorrow discovered disco music for the first time?  Here’s what might be the result.  Listen to the song by clicking here.

Reality TV People

If you’ve listened to my podcast for any length of time you know I have a love/hate relationship with reality tv.  I get sucked into it just like you, but I hate that I do.  Here’s a little song about that!  Listen to the song by clicking here!

Castro Valley

I wrote a song about the town I’ve lived in now for over 2 years.  My wife and I love it here so I wrote a little tune about it.  Listen to the song by clicking here!

Walkin’ My Boxer

As you may have detected from looking around this website, I own a boxer.  These are such awesome dogs, and I wrote this little song about mine.  Enjoy!  Listen to the song by clicking here!

I Don’t Understand 80’s Music

I wrote this one, again, from the point of view of someone younger than me.  What do the youngin’s think about 80’s music?  Listen to this song to find out.  Listen to it by clicking here!

That Old Cassette

So young folks may have no idea what that cassette is and why it meant so much to my generation.  I wrote a little tune about that, too.  Here it is.  Click here to listen to it!

Defending American Idol

I would never want to defend this show.  I love poking fun at it.  But some people take offense.  So I went on the defense for them.  Click here to listen to it!

Off The Radio

I had invested 22 years of life into radio only see it come to a very unceremonious end.  I wrote a song about how this business changed for the worse for me and all people who used to enjoy this medium.  Listen to this song by clicking here.

Stay The Way You Are

“Stay the way you are changing every single day.”  Nothing stays the same and we’re all changing every moment of every day.  This is a song about recognizing this in your life-long love affair and acknowledging it in song.  Listen to it by clicking here!

Unpatriotic Now

I wonder why some people call other people unpatriotic and then turn around and do something unpatriotic themselves.  This song ponders that topic and the whole world of politics and hypocrisy.  Listen to this song by clicking here.

Rockstar Parking

This song’s not very kind to those people that just circle parking lots for hours and hours even though there’s tons of open spaces in the back…they want to be up front!  What is typically called “rockstar parking” I make fun in this song.  Enjoy!  Listen to it by clicking here!

Mr. Right Time

Ever had a friend who was dating the wrong person?  Not that they should be dating you, but this person is obviously so wrong for them and you wonder why he/she doesn’t see it.  Well, in this song, the witless victim is a woman, but it could be anyone.  This is a song for the clueless.  Click here to listen to it!

Divorce Me

Yeah, 2013 was a sh*##y year.  This is a bit personal.  And wacky.  Click here to listen…

What the Hell, Babe?

So this is sometimes said betwixt lovers when they are angry with one another.  I thought I would turn this into a tune.  I hope you like it!  Click on me to hear it!
