Here's a song that battled me for quite awhile... so I am glad to say I've gotten it recorded. Still rough from my home studio, but trying out a few additional things on my keyboard to round out the sound around the ukulele. Thanks for listening…read more

For years and years and years… this was the only JMT album I owned… this was the only JMT album that I knew existed; and this has always been one of my “most favorite” songs… not just one of my favorite JMT songs… one of my most favorite songs ever. I loved Barbara’s voice and her timing and her range… and how she sang the song so… realistically. It was as if she and I were actually having this exchange in some noisy crowed smoke filled lounge. I never meet Barbara in person… but I knew her for years and years and years, Bye’ Barbara… you are remembered.

Thanks for the comment James! I love your story about your Senior year.

This “Skating” song is fun to listen to. I’m on my second time thru. Definitely unique!

Barbara wrote this about a friend from Portland. It became her most requested song until she wrote North Sulfur River. Maybe because it was her only other song. (c) 1990 Royal T Music
