ALL OVER PARADISE
I really don’t know where this song is about it came out like a moon baby (huh?) born when sea is rising, leaves trembling and witches are fumbling .
DANCE IN THE DUST OF LOVE
Yes, I’m proud of this one; it’s seems like a correct ballroom romance where an empty dance floor is filled with fading memories…something like that.
Yes, I know where this song is about…it’s about sexting or sending dirty pictures on the internet. Is it about love or sex…you tell me but when you hear the song, especially in the refrain, it’s all about love.
memories from 8 / 9 year old, terrified kid
You probably know now where the previous song really was about.
According to my sister it is my best song ever…she was always right in the sixties.
A super Hole and Corner standard; dark and running in the blood
RUSSIAN WINTER IN AMERICA
Bring both sides together (but not in the elections)
MAMA OF GOLD
I like the line ‘I wish I was better’, because….I was sixteen when I wrote it.
Yeah what if?
YOU CAN FLY
This is Hole and Corner…with Charles.
Great first line…in darkness I wake up with the sun in my head
THE UNKOWN GIRL
I spoke to her yesterday!
ALL MY SENSES
Yes, I like this song and the natural rhythm , all senses involved, yeah all
WHEN DARKNESS SLEEPS IN YOUR EYES
Wrote this song in El Bruc, Spain. Record on the Triskell ‘Lukomorye’ album and played the song with my Russian friends from the ensemble ‘Ey Uchnjem’, city of Pskov.
THAT THING IN MY HEAD
Sounds like early Rolling Stones with Gretch Bisquit Alligator Resonator Guitar. Song written because I could not reach anyone including her, me, myself and I, and the world
DEATH ON THE ROAD
Terrible song but I like it.
I do go mad, our love is so dead and I tried to get it alive
LA DI DA LOVE
Indian tune with compassion
African love woman Ah!
Song with co-writer Becky Lockwood, thanks Becks!
