My Only Love Song

Posted in Music with tags , , on January 7, 2010 by The Buddha Rats

I wrote this song “Pine Away” back in early 2008. My ex-wife and I were nearing the end, and nothing was going right for either her or me.

I never told her that the song was about her, even when she asked me. But it was.

Anyway,  it’s still a beautiful song.

In a nutshell, it was a sampler built and used in the 1960’s. If you’ve ever played around with one, you know they are a lot of fun. John Lennon is quoted as saying “I must have one of these” after just five minutes playing a Mellotron.

Here’s something I tracked back in 2003 using Gmedia’s M-Tron. It’s called “Welcome to Slaggers”:

Have a great New Year!

Enjoy.
