So I went to my little studio this morning and started work at 7am. This was partly an attempt to avoid the stifling heat in the hellish sauna that is my current place of work. About 12pm it becomes completely unbearable so I thought I'd beat the heat. It was lovely cycling along at 6am, sun rising over Crystal Palace Hill. It turns out I'm a morning person... all these years and who knew. Anyway, As a result of starting at 7am I finished up at 2pm when the sweat dripping out of my eyes was making the piano keys too moist to play and I feared an electrical incident. I got back and worked on replying to emails and then I was looking through my hard drive for a particular old song that I needed to send to a colleague of mine for an application and I found myself tumbling back through the history of my songwriting.
As I listened to old recordings of finished/half finished work I thought it might be an interesting little project to post one of my old songs up on soundcloud. One every day for as many of them as I can find and see what people think. I'm not going to go in historical order or anything like that. All of these songs are at least three years old. Some are from old shows, some are from shows that never made it to the stage and some are just my brain rambling away.
So I shall post them on my soundcloud each day. Feel free to listen and wander through my old brain... I hereby dub this "THE OLD SONG PROJECT".
This first one is called Invisible and it's sung by an evil super villain whose secret power is the ability to be invisible... from Paper Balloon's one off show called Bob Jitsu is a Thingy-ma-Doo... Enjoy! For anyone who ever thought being invisible would be awesome.
