Laid Back Reggae Rock VideoSong

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=463qNbrq0a0 Dig this tune?  Tell me in the box below. -Happy Rockin! Up Here (lyrics): Up, up, up and away we go, If we don’t come down, we’ll put the well with oh, oh well, at least we’re here still. High up above looking down below, have you ever seen anything as beautiful? Then tell. This might take awhile, (oh well) to go back. It might take some time, (oh well) giving you a fair warning that says: Last time I even had bothered to check, I had a pack of hungry bankers calling me to collect up all the debts I know, what I owe, if I could afford ’em well then I’d pay ’em all! I can’t so I won’t, ends up I don’t. Another fee you see will be no help at all to me. I’m thinking the only way I’m saving the day is to pickup another job so I can pay the rent.

Song About Getting Lost in Music

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LOETe39kNQ Dig this tune?  Tell me in the box below. -Happy Rockin! Carried Away (lyrics): I wrote a song and on and on… I’ll shout until my throat swells up and cannot speak a sound. It goes like so, listen up here we go, the root, the sixth, the major fifth composed it on the go. Once you have it down, you’ll leave the ground, and fly so high you’ll have to squint to see the ground below. Some things I know, others I don’t. We’re up here when down there the atmosphere was all alone. We’re up there, we won’t care… about anything. We’re up there, have no fear… of ever coming back. Just get Carried Away with me! —- Gear: Gibson Epiphone Les Paul Custom, Fender JP Custom Bass, Groove Tubes GT55 Condenser Mic, Digitech GNX4, Ableton Live for Audio, Video Editing, Drum Programming Flip Video HD Camera —- All [Read More…]

Rock n Soul VideoSong w/ Ebow Solo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5S9bZpPvRbs Dig this tune?  Tell me in the box below. -Happy Rockin! It Won’t Be Long (lyrics): Now that you’re gone, when will I see you again or can’t you say now? Promise me it won’t be long, Don’t let it be long. I can’t see you so clear, in my mind it doesn’t compare to you, my dear. It won’t be long, don’t let it be long. It seems that I can’t be me without you around, my love. I scream and I yell for you. It won’t be long, now that you’re gone. ©2010 Derek Atkinson, Some Rights Reserved —- This is a VideoSong, a new medium with 2 rules: 1.
