TUNE Phil Simon - I Miss..
A dreamy lament to hazy crazy childhood memories and the passing of me dear old Ma
I miss my mom, too, Phil. She was born in Czechoslovakia, grew up on the south side of Chicago, during the Capone days, met my dad during WWII (Marine, fought in south pacific) at the Trianon Ballroom, dancing to Lawrence Welk's orchestra and raised my sis and I. She passed away in 1995, 2 days after my parents' 50th anniversary. My dad passed in 2006. I miss him too. That was when I wrote No Way Home. I was wrong, there is a way home. I found it, here in Essex with my darling wife. England is my spiritual home. Anyway, I didn't mean to make a comment on your lovely song to be about me, I was just relating how such a simple piece of music opened up my memory vault...
Well I do, but oh dear, I really need to redo that 1st section - vocals and tune are APPALLING - but it was a feel piece really at the time - best drum track I've done so far though
interesting track, lots of great ideas there
looking ag gnarlybird's comment - tried to reply to his comment but it is just not happening, hence adding a separate comment. His comment and this song have also made me think about my mother - she also died in 2006. I also wrote a song about her - mine is 'getting late' following a conversation I had with her in which she was lamenting that she would have wanted to have done more with her life, and did I think that she had wanted it to be like this ? I played 'Getting Late' as her funeral. God bless them all.
So, somewhere between Rolf Harris and Kate Bush then. Our kind of stuff:
