Re: SING ME AN OLD SONG.

Excellent Phill your lyrics have got me feeling all nostalgic. That is the sort of song that people would enjoy after a few bears and wanting a sing along.     

Re: SING ME AN OLD SONG.

Thanks Peatle. Of course I blame you for all this nostalgia...lol

Hey Phill - I love it - I agree with Pete, has kind of a pub song feel to it. I can picture a pub sing-a-long...getting me thirsty now. smile

Re: SING ME AN OLD SONG.

So very true.I love the line "Life was much simpler then."  How many have sung along with the radio?     

Music is what feelings sound like.
Music is life, that why our hearts have beats.

Re: SING ME AN OLD SONG.

It's perfect Phill

Just the other day I was thinking about how frigging complicated life is now.
This is exactly how I felt - wishing I could somehow go back in time.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Thanks Jeff. you must have got better pubs than we have, it's all up-to-date songs sung by teenagers(?) to backing tracks so you cant tell if they're actually singing.

yes, the 60's and 70's were much simpler and most of the music was enjoyable and played by real musicians. singing along to a good song is one of my favorite things. thanks for the comments.

Jud Strunk???? must be a funny guy with a name like that?

what is funny is that this was one of those throw away songs, it seems like looking back is a hot topic at the moment and it just came out with hardly any work involved. i have recorded it and it lasts just a minute and a half. i shall post it when time allows.
