Yup. This is my favorite so far - but you likely knew I'd like this one best when you recorded it.

Written for the April 2020 RPM mini-challenge. I hoped for an EP and ended up with a single song. The song is largely recorded on a T25 mic I built for Brian of A Beautiful Scene as a means to test the mic. It's pretty solid if you ask me…

This song is great, I didn't understand it at first but after a listen through some of your songs and reading a couple of forums on RPM this is one of the most fantastic things I have heard.

Horray! I didn't realise you'd uploaded this corking album, obviously love this track. Pepsi and I were singing it for weeks. :)

One thing I like about covers is turning a song on its head, so that's what I did with this tune from the great ABS album "The Far Side Of Paradise". I hope I made Lane proud.

Lane says "meh" But I bet my Mom likes it better than my track, so you get points there.

Brian of A Beautiful Scene wrote an amazing tune for the 2020 A Beautiful Scene RPM record and I couldn't get it out of my head. I hope I did it justice. (updated May 10 with a slightly different mix)

Love the new mix! Nailed those "slidey" guitar parts!

This song perfectly encapsulates the feeling towards writing music, especially for RPM. Even with it's light humour, it still has a weight to it that commands an emotional response for all of those who have written a catalogues worth of songs. Well done Tim!

Good choice! A super song and now I want to hear that album because being a bit old, I haven't heard of them. Thanks!

I love Wilsun's 2020 RPM album "Departure", so I decided to cover it (yes, the whole album), but with a twist. I found some bits to be repetitive, so I removed them. I wrote down the lyrics and chords, and promptly ignored the originals, making…

Haha haha! It really is Boy’s don’t cry. Great cover!

My first RPM cover of 2011. This one is "Like This" by The Missed Connections. I seem to have taken a darker turn with the song than Amelia did. It wasn't intentional, but it seems to be what I do when I cover her songs.

A song about missing my wife when I travel. lyrics After all this time it comes down to this You still excite me with every kiss And every time you go away, I have to say It makes for quite a long day I hate it when I’m away from you…

The last place you can go in any time zone is Howland Island. Can’t get this out of my head The last words that you said Tried to make you stay Still you went away You think you understand But you’re just a man This thing is bigger…
