Music! Songs! Music!

July 19, 2018

Music Music Music! Songs Songs Songs!

From January 6th 2017 to July 2, 2018 I have written the music to 225 songs!

That is more than 12 a month for 18 months. Brings my total to over 1,950 songs. The 225 songs are from Song #1730 – #1955.

For comparison, the Beatles wrote about 190 songs total in their career. I did more than that in 18 months, and ten times that in total so far. But are they anywhere as good? Play them and see for yourself!

I had planned to record many of these, but I’m not going to go into a recording studio until the music stops flowing!

So instead I’ve done some, NOT studio recordings, but rough minute demos of some of these 225 songs.

Please go to my youtube channel, listen to any that interest you, and give them a thumbs up (literally just lifting a finger.) Search TomHendricksMusea or video floor at the big website.

For 150 studio recordings go to the music ‘floor’ on my website tomhendricks.us or see wikipedia.

RECENT SONG DEMOS:

Cherry Tree
Instrumental

Blink of an Eye
Bittersweet song of lost loves.

Rock, Paper, Scissors
Hand Dancing. Can you do the moves?

Jingle Jangle Day
Surely one of my happiest songs with the least amount of lyrics.

Road Chorus
Should be played loud while on the road.

Someone Who Loved Me
Two friends or lovers?

Shoo Bop
Song for background singers everywhere.

Cello (a Love Story)
Man falls in love with a Cello player next door.

Goodbye to War
Title says it all.

Lullaby (a Mother Goose Rhyme)
Pure melody and voice – nothing else.

I Was There
Simple instrumental for all your memories.

All the Birds in the World
Synthesizer song – lots of joy in these notes.

Happy Birthday Song
Now you have two choices for birthdays.

AND

TeXas Video Showdown.
This is the ongoing, worst video ever made… for a good reason – to support the music revolution against the 3 CEOs that have ruined it.
Thousands have viewed this one over a few years. Join the music revolution by supporting this worst video ever!

Who is Getting the Cash from Streaming?

February 17, 2018

This article from Digital Music News is about streaming revenue. https://www.digitalmusicnews.com/2018/02/14/spotify-apple-music-top-songs/

The scary fact coming out of it is this:

99% of the 377 billion streams are for the top 10% of streamed tracks!

That means a handful of major stars are making all the money, and the crumbs, 1% of streaming revenue, is left to 90% of musicians.

Yet another reason for the music revolution.

The Music You Love

February 15, 2018

My suggestion is that the music you hear during puberty is the music you like from then on. This study seems to support that.

Video, All the Birds in the World

February 4, 2018

Just posted a youtube video minutes ago, of a very happy keyboard song. I’ve been writing a massive amount of music, mostly on guitar with a break on the piano, and this little 5 chorder came out with a lot of spirit and joy.

Now imagine a sky with all the birds and listen.

TeXas Video Showdown and KERA

October 24, 2017

Musea Readers know that I have my problems with both NPR and local stations KERA and KXT for their lack of support for artists.

So I was surprised, when googling my name to find this posted in April of 2015 on the KERA Art and Seek site.

I had sent them a story and link feeling that they would never do anything about it.

Take a look, and know that the TeXas Video Showdown, worst video ever made… on purpose, is still going strong with thousands of hits.

When you go to the link, note that there is a place to add comments. Please do if you would like to support the cause.

Now when I criticize their coverage I have to change, “never covered” to” that one time!”
