Heavy guitar licks and repetitive vocal lines leads this song as an anthem to the fight. The struggle of the every day that can be overcome if you fight through it. The every man’s mantra to persevere in all life’s adversities. Listen and get inspired to drive on and fight the fight to the end.

Da da Dee Da is a whimsical little number that the rhythm and vocals just keep laying over one and another. It started by me just playing an acoustic guitar riff over and over. As it progressed I tried adding lyrics but all I kept coming up with is DA da Dee Da in which mimicked the guitar riff. So I took the notes and added a horn section and layered that in the back ground. A sax solo fit in very melodically with that haunting like echo on it. I just kept laying vocals in all ranges and at one point I called my wife in and had her lay down a few vocal laying tracks. In fact the last vocal Da da Dee da you hear as all the other vocals fade out is my wife’s vocal. One thing about this song is that when you hear it once Da da Dee Da will stick in your head for the rest of the day.

Knowledge is Power is one of my favorite songs on the album. The heavy guitar riff leading into the vocals just works so well. The lyrics are interesting as the main guitar riff lends itself to the key vocal line, “knowledge is power”. The full lyric verses were a little more difficult to come up with. I knew what I wanted to convey and say but I could not come up with the words to convey it. Thus, let’s go to google and put in the phrase, “Knowledge is Power”. So many different idea’s started to form around that phrase. The actual phrase was formulated by philosopher Francis Bacon during the time of Enlightenment. I was immersed in many different ways to convey “Knowledge is Power” but now I had to make the words fit into the song and for it to make sense (at least to me). After I got the first verse down and the phrasing to the music, it all clicked and fit in. One of my favorite lines in the song is, “Putting our knowledge we know, In the hands of machines”. The guitar lead comes after the 3rd verse, it follows the acoustic guitar and then comes in heavy and eclectic. Listen to the words as the meanings are profound.

Have you heard of an older band from Bay City in Michigan, “Question Mark and the Mysterians”? They were kinda a one hit wonder back in the early mid 60’s. Actually if you read up on that band, some say they were kinda the precursor to early punk bands with a very different and unique sound. When I was working at the Mudd club in New York City as the production manager, Steve Maas (owner of the Mudd Club) had booked the band to play on a Saturday night. I distinctly remember the hit song 96 tears and loved the Farfisa organ in the song and the texture and sound that added to make the song great. When writing shake it, that organ riff type and sound stuck with me as I incorporate  a similar sound style into this song called Shake It. It really has an upbeat tempo and very danceable and just plan friggin fun. Listen to the words, I call my baby, sweetheart, darling and the best line towards the end of the song, ” just like dripping honey!”

As many of the songs on Eclectic Collaborations were written and performed by both Kimo and I, these song writing collaborations brought out the best in him and I.  Kimo added many instrumental touches & textures to songs that I wrote, that absolutely gave some new dimensions to my songs that I really enjoyed. We became, over the last 8 months close when working together on this album. We would play off of each others idea’s and develop them into cohesive flowing songs. I would say adding the lyric’s was the most fun as we would come up with a name for the song and then just run with the lyric’s. Take the song “Hanky Panky” for instance, as we were writing this song Kimo said to me, ” it’s sounds like Hanky Panky”. The next night I was alone listening to the playback and the words for Hanky Panky just started to flow. The New York vibe and the feel of the city and looking to ,”Get me some” played in my mind. The next session I said to Kimo, “your voice is perfect for this song”, and I stuck a mic in front of his face and gave him the lyric’s. The first take was great, although a few of the lines didn’t mesh exactly as we wanted. A few tweaks here and there and Kimo’s gravely voice was perfect -Up on 96th Street, Good God!
