Original – State of Mind

Another embarrassing old song I wrote in 1994…  This one is as touchy-feely, sappy, and sickeningly-sweet as could be.  Yuck!  Excuse me while I go throw up a rainbow.

The photo above is of me entertaining my friends Chris and Joe, as I would do frequently back in the day.  Chris would also say, “Dance, monkey. Dance!”

Original – Better Off

A sappy ballad that I wrote in 1999 after the crumbling of a 7 year relationship, “Better Off” was me trying to convince myself that my ex-girlfriend was better off without me.  I was obviously not feeling very good about myself at that time, but writing and singing this song was emotionally healing.

Vocals were recorded with my Shure SM-58 mic, guitar used was my Ovation electric/acoustic (not my crappy Carlos acoustic in the photo above).

Original – The OCD Song

This is truly random… maybe offensive?  Nah… I believe we all have a bit of OCD in us.  I mean, I don’t wash my hands over and over again, but I do sometimes have to circle the block and drive back by my house because I can’t remember if I actually closed the garage door… even though I just did it 60 seconds ago.

Anyway, the tune is obviously to “If You’re Happy and You Know it…”.
