Magical Moment 573, "Drowning"


I've been posting a lot of videos lately because things have been so hectic with the recent storm. I thought I'd post another song from the other night at Gizzi's Cafe. It's a cover that seems to go with the theme of the week....water. Originally recorded by Ray Charles, this is one of my favorites, "Drown in My Own Tears." (What a great lyric, eh? Makes me wish I would have thought of it first!)

Speaking of drowning, that's just what I felt like, singing and playing my guts out that night for about 5 people in the audience!

Ray Charles is a big musical influence of mine, in fact, I named my keyboard after him!

I'll get back in the swing of writing soon. In the meantime, enjoy the video!

One day when you're famous I'll tell everyone I knew of you when you were playing to an audience of 5. Very cool.

By the applause, it appears that your small audience was duly impressed. You and Ray make beautiful music.
