…I’d Never Had One That Big Before…

I have always been fascinated when overhearing snippets of conversations as you pass people by and wondering what the f*** are they talking about – “what is their story?”…

Everyone has their own world going on for them and we sometimes are a part of it, if even for 3 seconds.

I have discussed this before and I was told that there is a name for this type of “curiosity” but I can’t remember and Google hasn’t helped me this time.

A couple of years ago I decided to see if I could write lyrics with this theme in mind in the hope that one day someone much more musically gifted than me could create a song from it…

Verse One

When you see someone that you just don’t know
Where they’ve come from
Or are about go
With a name not known and a past not shown

Pre Chorus

Caught in the minute
Sharing a second

Verse Two

When you hear three words and not much more
What do they mean and
Who are they for
Its a conversation with no revelation

Bridge

Caught in the minute
Sharing a second

Chorus

Everyone has their story
Everyone has their own little
world behind their eyes
Once upon their times and their ever afters

Verse Three

When you look inside and you just don’t get
What’s going on and
How the strangers met
Who’s that, who’s she and who is he

Repeat Chorus

“Train stations, airport terminals, subway stops: soulless spaces full of distracted, stressed zombies, or magical sets for fleeting, interlocking human stories?”

 

(What’s The Story) Morning Glory…?

The said what...?

They said what…?

I have always found it fascinating whenever I hear a few seconds of other people’s conversations while they pass by. With no idea of the context, the meaning or the history of that conversation it just leaves me wondering.

Similarly, if you pass by a house and see a light on it makes me wonder of the people inside and how they all have their own stories to tell.

These thoughts and ideas were behind this set of lyrics that I have written…

Verse One

When you see someone that you just don’t know
Where they’ve come from
Or are about go
With a name not known and a past not shown

Caught in the minute
Sharing a second

Verse Two

When you hear three words and not much more
What do they mean and
Who are they for
Its a conversation with no revelation

Caught in the minute
Sharing a second

Chorus

Everyone has their story
Everyone has their own little
world behind their eyes
Once upon their times and their ever afters

Verse Three

When you look inside and you just don’t get
What’s going on and
How the strangers met
Who’s that, who’s she and who is he

Have you ever eavesdropped on a conversation you weren’t supposed to? Tell us about a time when it was impossible not to overhear a conversation between people who didn’t know you were there. What was the conversation about? How did it make you feel?

This Used To Be My Playground…

Music evokes memories for me much more than photographs ever will.

For 3 minutes, whilst listening to particular songs, I am instantly transported back in time. I can smell the same smells, see the same things and I feel the same feelings.

It is so hard to pick one particular song to share.

I also think that there is a fitting song for every occasion, mood and memory. Recently my old high school was knocked down and although high school wasn’t ever really my most favourite place in the world it was still quite sad to think that a building where so many people grew and developed themselves would be gone forever.

Of course, there was a perfect song to accompany that feeling…

I then discovered a website called 28 Days Later which is a collection of photos from old abandoned buildings and before it got knocked down someone must have went inside my old school and took some photos.

What else could I do? I simply had to create a photo montage to accompany the perfect song…

A song comes on the radio and instantly, you’re transported to a different time and place. Which song(s) bring back memories for you and why? Be sure to mention the song, and describe the memory it evokes.

I Can’t Sing, I Can’t Play, I Look Awful…

I can’t sing.

I can’t play.

I (sometimes) look awful.

I’ve never been in a band due to two out of the three reasons above.

However, these days with the internet being what it is you don’t always have to be “musically gifted” to be able to produce music.

I love writing lyrics and, in my opinion, I think some of them are quite good. I recently got in touch with an old friend on Facebook and she is, in my opinion, exceptionally gifted. She offered to put music to my lyrics and sing. When I heard the short demos she had done I was delighted to say the least. We’ve never picked this up again but I really hope we do…

Have you ever played in a band? Tell us all about that experience of making music with friends. If you’ve never been in a band, imagine you’re forming a band with some good friends. What instrument do you play in the band and why? What sort of music will you play?
