A harvest-moony reflection, written in November 1993 and left alone until 2007, when the band got into a rainy day mode and dusted it off.
b-side of the Words Of Release single off Goodbye Monday Blue.
on top of a cement sidewalk — under a cloudless sky
you and i had our first embrace — before our first goodbye
then i drove along the freeway — away from the city
saw the skyline in my mirror –- could’ve sworn you were looking at me
i don’t want to know anymore
i don’t need to know anymore
Because i know you’re still there
i just know that you’re still there
so now i’m flyin over this memory — on a hazy afternoon
you have to know that i am watching — you have to know i made it through

En attendant le camion qui vogue sur l'océan Atlantique, une bonne journée entre les toboggans et les Aquariums de Durban.
While our truck is on the Atlantic Ocean, let’s enjoy [waterslides] & aquariums of Durban.
The Bellais family from France (DAvid, CAmille, LUcile et Félix) is traveling around the world in a converted old fire truck for two years. They’ve used a few of my tracks in their video episodes, and it’s an absolute kick to ride along and hear my songs pop up every so often. Follow them here:

A snippet of my track she still echoes (like a summer) runs over the closing credits of a meditative short film called “Conversations,” directed by Jaume R. Lloret, which competed in Spain’s Jameson Notodo Film Festival. Also was selected for the Radio City Festival in the section “Valenciana Shorts” and a finalist in the Mostra de Cinema Jove of Elche. No spoilers, other than my track gets a scrolling credit…
Dos hombres cualquiera hablan sobre sus cosas en un parque cualquiera, porque realmente, la situación cada vez está peor…
“Two ordinary men talk about their stuff in a ordinary park, because the situation is getting worse…”

My track Words Of Release soundtracks an extreme ride down Uganda’s White Nile River. Awesome that a song about peace makes such sense against raging waters. Wonderful cinematography. My track starts approximately 01:50.
Uganda’s politics around self-expression and gender are not aligned with mine (understatement), but you rarely have control over where your music is placed (just ask Chrissy Hynde about Rush Limbaugh’s daily use of My City Was Gone). That said, I will view this placement as an unintentional subversion, and hope it provides a subconscious hint of an enlightened world.
**extra fun: on youtube, the 1st comment (in russian) asks “at around 1:55, what’s that song?” cheap thrills all around. :^D
