Dear Reader,

This week I posted 8 of my short, keyboard compositions,.
They are a sort of a cross between Bach and Tchaikovsky !
Look for lots of melody, atonal is out for me.

Please give these a thumbs up! Comments are welcome too!

This is one of hundreds of keyboard bagatelles that I’ve written. Most
are a minute or so long. My piano playing is average at best, so it’s
the composition that is important.

Modern classical music? Got to be atonal, strident, cold, and weird,
right? Don’t think so!!! I try to make these bagatelles melodic,
simple, beautiful, elegant, and fun!

Most have a 2 part structure with a major theme, then a minor middle
then a repeat of the original theme. Join the music revolution!

3 Albums Worth!

July 15, 2019

Dear Readers,

3 Albums worth!

For the last few years I have been writing and recording a lot of new music. From the first of 2018 till now 19 months), I’ve also made many SONG DEMOS.

I counted them up today and there are 37!

THAT’S 3 ALBUMS WORTH!

3 full albums of 12 songs each, with one demo to spare!

Here is the breakdown:
33 are original,
3 are covers, and
1 was just added!

These rough demos, are not the studio quality of my 150 song outside-the-box set, but I couldn’t wait to show them to you! They are all on my YOUTUBE channel, Tom Hendricks or

COLD

1. Just like that King Lear, I’m left with a fool,
half blinded and all alone, stumbling through.

2. I see a land of shadows under a pitch black sky,
and a river of darkness on a rainy night.

It’s a cold cold night, mighty cold.
I’m lost and alone, mighty cold.

Help me please, I’m on bended knee.

3. Oh should I stay here, should I run away,
should I seek shelter and try to wait?

It’s a cold cold night, mighty cold.
I’m lost and alone, mighty cold.

Help me please, I’m on bended knee.

My Mistake (music video)

June 27, 2019

My Mistake is what happens when some break up.
This is my song #2,105 written 5-25-31-2019
(Lyrics posted on youtube video too!)
Headphones are always best!
This is not a studio recording – for purists see my 9 CD boxed set. But I don’t want to wait. I want you to hear them now, so I am posting them right away!

(There are not singles anymore, but if there were, I think this coupled with my last sci-fi song, “Dark” would make a good one. Comments?)

MY MISTAKE

I was thinking when you left me
I would go out find somebody new.

Just that easy look around me
find another just as sweet as you

Oh My mistake, Oh Silly Fool

So I looked at all the women
all around me Which one would I choose

Pretty soon I was so frustrated
They were charming but they just weren’t you.

Oh My mistake, Oh Silly Fool …

I thought if I walked away
you’d run after me.

But when I left and Turned around
No one was following me

Here I am all alone
can’t go back and nothing up ahead

I was happy when I met you
Will I ever feel that way again.

Oh My mistake, Oh Silly Fool…
