My accompanist is the extremely talented Nathan Joseph.
If you only have time for one of these, listen to If Offered A Choice, the No. 1 hit among my small circle of friends.
Since January, I have been writing love poems to my wife of 42 years, Vicki, then paying a musician to set them to music and sing them. He wishes to remain anonymous.
These songs are all public domain and royalty-free, and I encourage their distribution and public performance. Piano/guitar lead sheets are available on request from [email protected]. (The Tom Lehrer music used for On My Knee―the tune of Vatican Rag―has been put in the public domain by Lehrer)
I honestly believe these songs have brought, and might continue to bring, some joy to people in these difficult times. They are on Spotify, and Itunes.
(Note: you can also listen to my parodies) (or read my other poetry)
Read the love-song lyrics or parody lyrics.
