‘Believe’ – final version

This is now hopefully the final version of Believe. This song has been through many changes and I am quite happy with it now, well at least for the moment.

It has not yet been mastered so you may want to turn up the volume.

Frustrating

Spent all my spare time this week installing and uninstalling Windows 7 on my studio PC. I was running XP as main main OS and Win 7 dual boot. I thought it time to upgrade XP to the 64 bit version of Win7 so that I could make use of more ram. After spending hours installing all my music software and plugins I loaded a Cubase project only to find that Win 7 x64, my Emu drivers and Cubase did not like to run a cpu heavy project. I could hapilly run at 95% cpu usage on XP. I have now restored XP from an image and still have installed Win 7 32 bit on a separate partition.

Ghost Town mix

Posted a new mix of ‘Ghost Town’ a song I have been working on recently. You can download or play the mp3 free from Soundclick

New Song – This Ain’t Love…..

Started working on a new song
This Ain’t Love But It’s Close Enough
Lyrics by Ted Barrett 2009
Hey lover, wanna come over
play slap and tickle
under the covers
give me your backside
and we can pretend
you’re her and I’m him
Some say love’s a bed of roses
she’s so innocent
as he proposes
he left you with bills
and a sickly kid
adios he said
She dumped me found her a rich boy
he isn’t too smart
but he brings her joy
that I thought we had
turns out I was wrong
now she is long gone
Get yourself a sitter
call up your sister
I’ll be your mister
for an hour or two
we’ll forget the pain
shedding tears like rain
call each other names
that we needed to
This ain’t love but it’s close enough
so we like to fight
never coo like doves
call each other up
with a needy rage
strip, shout and engage
