So I was locked in the broom-cupboard, checking out some old songs that need recording. I'd just picked one and then suddenly this thing came out of nowehere. It started with one of those guitarist doodles that other musicians love so much…

Now here's a bit of an oldie - the second song I ever wrote. In... 1978! I think I played it once, or maybe twice, at school assemblies. My musical peers and colleagues back then dismissed it as corny/rancid pop music rubbish... Now, I kinda…

Sounds like a 50s Buddy Holly era song. Very sweet sentiment. And, yes, I can dance to it.

I found this one while I was digging through the shoe-box for the 1994 songs. Apparently I wrote it on 10th November 1995. Foolishly, I thought it would only take a week or so to record... I was originally expecting to post it on the 17th August…

And here's another song from 1994, with a sparkling new "Andrew Russe Band" arrangement fresh from the broom-cupboard. Like most of my songs, it was written with an acoustic guitar, a pen, and an A4 pad. The ones written like this all have…
