I once had “another life.”
Yeah, back in the 1980s and to a lesser extent, the 90s (see above!), I was a living-room singer and songwriter of little note… er, notes. My “career” such as it was began in 1981 with a satirical ditty I wrote that was full of digs at conceited girls. Here’s a photo of my friend and me, singing it at a party. 😅
My ditty was well received, and we went on to sing it among other tunes with some pals at many a singles party back then.
I just realized that I already wrote about our group, The Good Buddy Band, before! (It was here: https://crossedeyesanddottedtees.wordpress.com/2016/05/24/windows-on-the-past-the-good-buddy-band/) But that post was almost four years ago, so maybe some of you forgot – as I did! 🙄😄
Anyway, I don’t do this type of activity anymore, partly because I became more interested in other types of writing, and partly because I no longer have my amazing 1967-model Martin guitar. It’s a long story, but it’s gone…sniff. I’ve had several other guitars since but they just don’t measure up to those honey-warm tones at all. Ah well. At least I have my memories – plus a bunch of songs I wrote, a few of which you can find here at these links. Note that others covered them. (I don’t like my voice.)
Thanks for reading, listening and watching!
