Episode #38:  Missed Me   ( Song at 5:21) Wow! Episode #38 of my ‘song writer speaks’ series. I can’t believe there’s been that many already. It all seems so new and exciting each week when I hit the record button. I’ve had fun today, been out to the beach a couple of times today... (might’ve had a birthday, so I allowed myself sometime out - just a bit). While I was at the beach I painted a picture of the scene. This evening I made a video of ‘step by step’ cartoon pig on a bike (part 2) for YouTube. I've written a blog post and started adding photos, etc. Now it's 1am and I'm listening back to the episode I've just recorded as I'm writing this. I mention all of that because when you're busy like I am , you've just got to grab the moments you have to create.  That's where this song came from. Song number 5, out of about 700 songs now... next page…. If I hadn't recorded a demo of those early efforts, I may never have carried on writing and recording my songs. I'm so pleased I have.  In this episode, as usual, I talk about where this song came from. I look at the song from a musical view point, the lyrics, etc. In this case it’s an early effort, so looking back I can see my lyric writing style has developed. This song is about the perspective that can be gained you get some time to yourself. Be entertained & informed as you join me on a journey of discussion and discovery looking at the song 'Missed Me'.  Recorded by myself, Paul Dredge and Earl Pollard (R.I.P), Missed Me finally got recorded (in one take) in a studio in Melbourne quite a number of years later.  In this episode I also talk about how I got to the point where I started writing lyrics, then got my piano playing up to the point where my hands would just natural flow from one chord to the next confidently, in a musically confident way...and a song took shape. It’s fun playing the piano in between my talking. I sing and play parts of the song to draw attention to certain aspects of songwriting. So, ever wondered where a song comes from? It’s really just a bunch of simple steps. Along the way, intuitive decisions are made as it’s moulded into a form. That's the complicated part, when you analyse the process. But it’s so much fun at the time because it’s all done with a sense of play and exploration - much like podcast episodes!     Sit back and enjoy.
