  • A Friend to The End

    A "Friend to the End" has been replaced by the updated "Happy Birthday, My Friend" (See my updated post)

    Very nice, Rick.

    It meanders a bit, but it leaves me with a warm feeling. Nothing wrong with that, right?

      Oh, and as per usual, the tune is still jingle-jangling inside my head...

      +1. It's got a jaunty little groove going in the electric piano.

      Great song, Rick.  There are only things I'd change.

      1)  Turn the second line of the first chorus to: "and think of the people I've passed"  Make it more action there, metaphorical.

      2)  The guitar sound is a little off.  I almost sounds like sleigh bells when it first comes in.

      Other than that, it is perfect.

      Don't listen to Justin.

        Thank you for your feedback. 

        Instead, I threw a stick of dynamite in the song and redid it with new words, and a new approach on the music. 


        It has been renamed, too:

        Happy Birthday, My Friend(c)2013 Richard Dieffenbach

        V1:Happy birthday, my friend
        It's me, again

        Although you can't hear what I say
        Please talk to me anyway

        V2: Happy birthday, my love.
        I think of you, above
         
        And all the times we laughed aloud
        While chasing windswept clouds
        happy birthday my friend

        CHORUS:
        She loved to sail a windy sea
        Sip her morning tea  
        Share her hugs with only me

        Painting pictures that she saw
        Sew a quilt spread  on the floor
        Teach her children how to dance, how to love and how to laugh

        V3:
        Happy birthday, goodbye
        The day you left me, angels cried
        You always said the sun would rise  
        Even when there are tears in my eyes

        CHORUS.
