My love

My gift is my song
And this one’s for you
And you can tell everybody
That this is your song
It maybe quite simple
But now that it’s done
Hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you’re in the world

Sat on the roof
And I kicked off the moss
Well some of the verses well
They got me quite cross
But the sun’s been kind
While I wrote this song
It’s for people like you that
Keep it turned on

So excuse me for forgetting
But these things I do
You see I’ve forgotten
If they’re green or they’re blue (Ed. – I know they’re beautiful brown. heh)
Anyway the thing is well I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

And you can tell everybody
This is your song
It may be quite simple
But now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words

How wonderful life is now you’re in the world
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you’re in the world

Peter Mulvey – Look Ma, No Gasoline

Peter Mulvey - Look Ma, No Gasoline
(photo taken from Peter’s website. Don’t know who took it)

Here are some YouTube examples of why Peter is just an amazing singer/songwriter. I mention Peter every now and then and just realized how easy it is to show how good he is.

If you are in Wisconsin you owe it to yourself to experience him live. He’s currently doing a “bicycle tour” around southern Wisconsin. Yup. Biking to all venues. It’s not because his car has over 400,000 miles on it (if he’s even driving that beast anymore. heh). It’s called the “Look Ma, No Gasoline” tour. Man! Sometimes I wish I still lived in Wisconsin. Once or so a year in California is DEFINITELY not enough. 🙂 I hope he announces some California dates soon.

Enjoy the videos after the jump.

finetune… kinda fine, not tuned.

While perusing the Internets today I came upon a website called “finetune“. It’s another “Social Music” website in the growing online-music-space, dedicated to listening to your favorite artist’s music and discover new music that you can buy like the good little consumer that you are. There are many others but I won’t discuss them here. The list is just TOO long. You can see a “small” list in this comment at another website.

On finetune I did some searches for my favorite artists.  However, due to the broad range of my musical interests, the website doesn’t have my top picks. Peter Mulvey, Willy Porter, Eddie From Ohio… nada, zilch, bupkus.
