The Amazement of George video

I posted it on YouTube but made it private. If you're interested in another story song this is it.

I was sitting in an airport lounge eating the airport version of an English breakfast. Most of the tables were full when I saw a young woman carrying a tray of food. She looked hopefully at the seat next to me and the irate elderly lady she was trying to assist. I nodded yes as the sweet looking old lady said loudly, “Just put the fucking thing down somewhere!” in this very posh British accent. It was unexpected. The girl looked shocked, dropped the tray next to me and hurried off. Turned out the lady was retired & intent on seeing all the interesting places she'd read about in the Times travel section. It was a long conversation. I found out when I went to the cashier she'd paid for my breakfast too. It almost resuscitated my faith in humanity. She became the model for my fictional fairy godmother.

George receives more than an airport English breakfast. He's offered something that can change his everything. George's story is told with music. Think of it as 8 minutes of semi-dancable fiction for attention challenged people.

As always with my story songs; I advise you kick back with headphones, something relaxing at hand & let a few minutes of grown up story time roll by.

Gunes Sensoy played the beautiful electric guitar solos.

Track 11 from Babble On "April, A Long Time Ago"

Track 11 from “Babble On”, “April, A Long Time Ago”

This is the last song from my new record. 11 days, 11 songs. There's a playlist on YouTube.

This is a spoken word song. Hank Williams had the idea creating an alter ego in Luke the Drifter. He recorded little stories, usually with a moral at the end, over his band's music with Luke The Drifter on the cover so people didn't expect his usual songs. I've closed my last three albums with a story song because if you're listening to the record sequentially it ends with something I hope was worth waiting for.

Wear headphones if possible. Kick back with something relaxing. Close your eyes. It's story time.

This is about the course of an affair. There's no moral at the end, just some music.
