New Song Lyrics: Anything
04/21/05 - This song has a lot of history. Special Guest recorded it first and even made a video, and the Squeaky Animals did an awesome ska version.

New Song Lyrics: Hey Carrie (PG)
04/07/05 - The first in the 'Slightly Esoteric Halloween Song' series. I wanted to write a song about the confidence of 10 year old girls and the nasty surprise nature has in store for them, then realized Stephen King had already made the movie version.

New Song Lyrics: T.B.C.
03/17/05 - This was my reaction to what seemed like a flood of commercials in the 1990's putting black voices behind white faces (or raisins, or other cartoons) while never showing actual black people.

New Song Lyrics: The Thousand Mile Song
01/01/02 - This was the second original song I performed in public on accordion. It was inspired by an e-mail discussion Marg Frey started concerning the utter impracticality of certain love song lyrics, the actual distance one would be willing to walk for one's beloved, and what exactly that is supposed to prove if anything.
