Raining Down, recording and video by Greebly Mork

March 3, 2020

"Raining Down", is a brand new recording of a song of mine, by Greebly Mork.
Here is the link to his version and youtube video. Then under it I’ve added a link to my rough youtube demo. When you listen, I recommend you use your headphones and you’ll get the richest sound experience on both.

Greebly Mork is, not only a talented musician, arranger, etct; he is the moderator of an online Face Book music group called, "Reinventing the Wheel". The group may be virtually the only place most musicians can get a review of their music!
Mork has set up this basic rule; before a musician posts his song, he has to review and comment on 3 other songs. That has worked well. Visitors will find lots of great music from about 100 musicians so far; and each song posted on the site, is packed with lots of comments.

This is my review of "Raining Down" by Greebly Mork:

Wow! There is a lot here I wanted to talk about. Your version is topnotch studio work, compared to my rough live demo; so, listening to your version in headphones is a real treat. You get that professional crisp fullness, plus a solid clear separation of parts.
I liked the simple intro that gets things started, and keeps things in a basic form up to the big choruses, with those multi vocals you are celebrated for.
But what was a real delight to me is how you use the background vocals to, not double track the lead, but to add a second answering melody line to the chorus. That was really sweet!
Good guitar work on the middle. I like the 3 or 4 different leads that built up before the song goes back to the verses.
I may be just imagining this, but the second revised version I listened to, seemed more lean on instruments on the verses, which
gives the choruses more punch. You mentioned minor changes – was there some changes like that too?
The one thing that surprised me the most is your version sounds more optimistic than mine, believe it or not! That’s the fun of hearing another’s take.
Now every review has to have one negative – and here it is: I did NOT see the 11 measure’s long, vocal belting, "OHHHHHHHHHH" at the end on your version! But I’ll let that slide as artistic differences! LOL

Thanks for doing this! It’s a big treat to hear one’s song done up so well!

Golden Age in Film

September 30, 2019

While Hollywood is slipping, there are 3 places where film is going through a golden age:

1. Youtube videos and video makers.
2. Non network TV series and documentaries
3. K – Dramas, South Korean TV Shows.

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…

Dark – the Spaceman Song

June 20, 2019

“Dark”, song #2103 is about a single spaceman on his way home! Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar. (Lyrics below – headphones best). Recorded live!

DARK
(c) Tom Hendricks 2019

1. Dark It’s so dark out here.
Empty space and a portal full of stars out here.
Wanna go home, station home.
Rocket home, where I belong (BASS LINE)

2. Cold, it’s so cold out there.
Traveling in a bucket of heat in a frozen void out there.
Yaws to the left, rattles all day,
warning light froze, hope I’m safe.

3. (guitar)

4. Hello, hello, hello ….

Middle: Check the gadgets, check the meters
see the long long distance to go.
Fire the engines, push the throttle
a thousand miles to get me home.

6. Static … do you read me yet
waiting for a human voice to speak and guide me in.
Want to dock and walk again.
Want to bow down, and kiss solid ground.
No more AI – people again.

7. Hello, hello, hello ….
