Description : A cover of a song by Blaze Foley, the Duct Tape Messiah. Even though it's just a bit slower than the original, I feel it has a little more upbeat feel, maybe the drum beat picks it up so I put it under pop. I love this guy's music, he wrote from the heart and from his life's experiences until he was shot and killed protecting an elderly gentleman. Sad and interesting story. The song Drunken Angel by Lucinda Williams is about him.

    Thanks! Yeah, that movie trailer is something else, lol, it captures his life in a few minutes. I saw that years ago and started watching everything by him. There wasn't much material released by him or many vids posted on yt until recently.

    Check out the first song in this vid, about Ronald Reagan, could even pertain to today.

    Thanks Patricia!

    Blaze Foley was shot protecting an elderly man from his son who was stealing his social security checks for drugs. The son didn't like that so he shot him and was acquitted because what was this strange man doing in his kitchen in the wee early morning hours. crazy.

    He wrote such good music and had a big heart, sad story.

    Thanks Michel!

    His singing style suits me perfectly, rough, not perfect and his songs are simple which I like also. I'll probably do Clay Pigeons by this guy at some point, it's one that was recorded by everyone in the folk industry. He wrote good story songs.

words and music by Blaze Foley

I ain’t got no dental floss never seen an albatross
Never been to Waikiki been as poor as poor can be
Get my clothes at a Goodwill store never do have to lock my door
I ain’t got no door to lock but that’s alright with me

I can't pay my dues in one lump sum tweedle de-de tweedle de-dum
Cause you don’t think I seen enough bad times to qualify
I don’t get no ‘lectric bills think too much but thinkin’ fills
The long lonely lonely nights I've never seen a love around

Seasons come the seasons go the cards they fall the dice they roll
I wish somebody’d come and roll my stone away
Turn around and now is then I wonder why I wonder when
Guess I shouldn’t worry guess I shouldn’t worry so

I ain’t got no bankin’ plan wake up with a shaking hand
Wish I could I wish I knew I could go on
The games you play don’t bother me I only know what I can see
And I can see that I’ll be gone a long time

I ain’t got no dental floss never ever seen an albatross
Never been to Waikiki been as poor as poor can be
Get my clothes at a Goodwill store never do have to lock my doors
I ain’t got no doors to lock but that’s alright with me

Description : Here's a song I created for you guys! Felt a spark of creativity last night and stayed up a bit to make this into a basic song. I provided the loops for the song if you'd like to restructure it! Real acoustic, percussion, claps and voices. No vocals but already structured for singing. Feel free to download and add vocals for non-commercial use :) Enjoy!

Description : Was trying out my new Fender electric guitar that was so generously given to me as a Christmas present from my oldest brother, and instantly fell in love with the tone! So much so that it inspired an entire night's worth of music. Instruments at work: Drums, Bass Guitar, Electric Guitar (x3), Acoustic Guitar, Pad, Tambourine. The bass is real this time (played by yours truly, pardon my amateur bass skills)!I hope you enjoy!

Description : messed around on my piano, came up with a good idea, and put it in fl studio. I think it turned out pretty great. It would be awsome to get some vocals to this. if you do, feel free to change up the title or whatever. tempo is at 105 if ya need to know. review it and enjoy.

Description : Sometimes i forget that i'm not a pro-musician, not involved in some market logic. Sometimes i forget that my job is foundry worker. But i never forget that i got a soul,i am human. As human, i need to bring out my feelings, and that is easier for me when I make music. Something in lyrics and Baby's performance touched me deeply. Just turn your lighter on, wave it and enjoy.
