  • VOM1T March, 2019

    Welcome to the March, 2019 VOM1T. Since garthman is in Spain, I'll be your volunteer host.

    Let's start with another "twofer" from me. First, a cover of Peter Paul and Mary's "In The Early Morning Rain": https://soundcloud.com/david-phelps-...y-morning-rain.

    Second, this month we celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Most of you might also remember that I'm a science fiction fan, and that there's a tradition of Sci-Fi/Fantasy themed songs called "filk." Herewith is an original filk song titled, "Don't Look At The Laser (With Your Remaining Eye)," which incorporates elements of both. Enjoy and maybe get a chuckle: https://soundcloud.com/david-phelps-...-remaining-eye.

    Greetings from Spain.

    Thanks for doing the honours, Deep - great songs.

    I'm back home on Monday so hopefully will come up with something then.

      Gosh already?

      I stumbled across this in my ancient files. Very different from my usual offerings.
      My guitar sounds like a million bucks. dunno when or how I recorded it.
      somewhere, somehow in Saigon.

      I’ll review everyone’s entry when I get back home myself.
      I’ve left the arms of Miss Zippy this week-end & fled to the embrace
      of that notorious old floozy Lousy Anna.

        Etienne Rambert - Well done. That's a favorite song of mine. I first heard Manhattan Transfer's version and fell in love with it. Interestingly, they don't include the "Fred Astaire" line. BTW, you're right about your guitar. It sounds very good.

          Loved Don’t Look At The Laser Deep End. As always, very clever lyrics.

          I liked your steady strum on the Lightfoot tune too.
          I have a hard time doing that anymore. I can still finger-style reasonably
          well though.

            Thanks. I can fingerpick a bit but it always sounds lame to me. I wouldn't be able to do it fast enough for that song anyway. I usually default to strumming.

              Well, Etienne, it looks like it's just us this month. Maybe garthman can bring back the magic next time. See everyone in April.

                Hi deepend ,good stuff ,nice job on the Peter Paul and Mary tune, i like your original, great lyrics, i was trying to guess your lyrics as it went along, the one i find amusing was his remaining toe ,so he can`t have had much luck regards his other toes ha ha . nice one .
                did you know that it is illegal to call an MP or a member of the "government ","L-I-A-R " while in the house of commons ,i wonder why?.we hear opposition shout rubbish and bah ,because legally rubbish is waste and bah is something a sheep does ,neither would stand up in court .

                    here`s mine this month, i too have recently been browsing through old recordings, this is an old 4 track recording of a female singer i used to be in bands with ,we recorded this on a cheap old Amstrad Studio 100 4 track cassette recorder back in the 90`s . i hardly ever played acoustic guitars round this period i was "strikly elektrikity" (soz), i hope she doesn`t learn of this been posted,Carole King that is. the singer did an amazing job on this version of You`ve Got A Friend.

                      catscurlyear - I really wanted to hear your own mellifluous voice but your friend did an impressive job on a classic song. Thanks for posting it.

                            I read in one of the Off Topic Forums that the Political types didn't like it. Your guess is as good as mine.

                              Thanks. I'm not 100% happy with that particular lyric and I've thought about changing it but it's hard to rhyme with "foot."
