Good Song

CD: Souvenirs by Andrew Pike

The Story

I was playing in a Newfoundland Greek band called The Forgotten Bouzouki. Thought I would borrow a bouzouki for the track. Song has a bit of an Elton john feel to it as well. The premise… a musician is comforting an alcoholic with a song he’s singing for her at the pub.

Convicts in the Sky

The Story

A 27 years of age stuck in limbo song. This song could be part ghost story as well. A bit brighter towards theĀ end. Like purging what we need to and then happily moving on.

Love’s All Around You

CD: Souvenirs by Andrew Pike

The Story

there are those who at times influence our moods negatively. We can easily take whats said out off context & as well maybe they have their own issues too. Dig a little deeper and likely they care more then one thinks. We will be surrounded with love & caring then.

Cherry Lemon Bell

The Story

She’s unlucky with so many things in her life. A cautionary tale of spending too much time gambling her life away figuratively & literally.

Road Map

CD: Souvenirs by Andrew Pike

The Story

We’re lucky when we’ve got directions to the places we need to go whether on pavement or in our lives. Especially when its the quickest way to get there & with the least amount of troubles along the way. Of course once upon arrival… there is a good chance we’ll want to take off again .

Saving Man From Man

CD: Souvenirs by Andrew Pike

The Story

A Canadian soldiers perspective. He sure would like to be home with his family & friends rather than than putting up with the stifling heat. Trying to keep the peace between the local warlords and being part of our politician’s foreign agendas, ain’t all what it’s cracked up to be. Wonder if he and the PM traded places for a week, how long the PM would last?? While he’d be enjoying all the perks of capitol hill… the PM would have sand in his boots!!
