Original Music

  • "I Don't Want to Fall in Love" -- a new song for summer 2019!

  • "Ten Thousand Ways" -- a recent pop love song featuring Christine Burki on vocals.

  • "I Wrote A Folk Song But Nobody Liked It" -- a new protest song for the current times.

  • "Escape From Long Island" -- written a few years ago after getting stuck in one too many New York metro area traffic jams.

  • "They Say They All Have Boyfriends" is an instrumental in search of lyrics.

  • "It's a Hit" is a tribute to Gary Wilson, one of my favorite artists.

  • "I'm in the Love Zone" -- a dance music track recorded in the mid-1990s and remixed in 20013 with additional instruments

  • "She'll Never Be Mine" was originally done by The Lines; however, no recording with The Lines exists. This early-'90s rendition was performed along with Howie Lieberman, who did the drum and bass programming and live drums.

  • "Pugs' Groove (Featuring Olive and Leena Marie)" -- recorded in 2009 with the help of two furry friends.

  • "The Invasion " -- the main title theme to a science fiction movie that doesn't exist yet. Created in GarageBand in 2010 with the aid of a Korg nanoKEY and nanoPAD.

  • "Relationship" -- recorded some time between 1977 - 1978, featuring Joe Stiff on vocals.

  • "The Cosmic Truth of Life Itself" -- recorded in summer 1986 by Howie Lieberman and myself, this tape was lost for 30 years...and found! Completely improvised live and off-the-cuff.

  • "Alone In My Room" was written in the late 1970s and originally performed by The Lines. This version was recorded in 1990 by Howie and I. It's a song about the fact that two lovers can never know everything there is to know about one another, which is what keeps things interesting.

  • "The Heike Crab" features abstract guitar on top of a spare rhythm track. I really didn't know what scales or modes I was playing on the guitar or on the outro synth chords, and could never play the song this way again. Recorded around 2005.

  • "Dance With the One You Love" -- recorded by Interior Motives around the early 1980s, mixed at BC Studios. Our attempt at a disco hit, featuring Nora Perrin on vocals, Bob Reina on keyboards and Howie on percussion and drum programming.

  • "This Time Around" -- a song about not making the same mistakes twice.

Covers

  • "Red Rubber Ball" -- an EDM version of the song made famous by the Cyrkle in the '60s, written by Paul Simon.

  • "Physical " -- Recorded in December 2009 using GarageBand, and featuring the Helium Breath effect on vocals. Joan Rivers meets Carlos Santana.

  • "Ventura Highway," "Tin Man" - just two songs I happen to like. A Precision Bass with flatwound strings was used for that classic Joe Osborn "thump" sound.

  • "Enola Gay" -- a cover of the new wave smash by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, created using Techno EJay software along with a Casio SK-5 and Oberheim OB-8.
