I hope all of my friends out there in podcast land are happy and healthy. And thank you all for participating in this reality staycation sci-fi movie with me. It’s going viral…and I’m sitting here by myself wearing a body condom.
Michelle Brock: Listen up, you little spazoids! I know where you live and I've seen where you sleep. I swear to everything holy that your mothers will cry when they see what I've done to you!
That’s the kind of word crafting that I use for lyric inspiration. You just don’t get enough “spazoid” anymore. Even my spell check didn’t recognize it.
So, boys and girls, today I’m introducing my song Endless Rain. The lyrics are done in a stream of consciousness. What I mean is well, here’s a definition that might help out.
So, it’s a little like brainstorming a scene or a story. For instance, and please excuse my Bob impersonation: “You used to ride on a chrome horse with your diplomat, who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat…” Bob Dylan made a career and a Nobel Prize out of it.
So, a Bob-Wannabe I’m not. People tell me I sing like him. That’s good. I guess. Although not known as the Roy Orbison vocalist of songwriters, Bob is well respected as a performer above and beyond his incredible body of work, and that’s the way uh huh, uh huh, I like it.
Wink Dinkerson Caffeined DJ: This is Wink Dinkerson, the best looking guy on the radio, playing the hits that, hey, it’s what the kids want! Here’s a local boy, Bruce Hilliard with a song about being trapped in a town of endless rain…
Wink Dinkerson: Yeah, yeah. It’s sunny and warm but here’s another song from Bruce that’s not. A song about, in Bruce’s words…
Bruce: It's about a broken man that's lost his wife and is so desperate for a friend he pawns his departed wife's wedding ring and spends his last penny on a lady of the night if only to “whisper in his ear, it's gonna be alright.”
Wink Dinkerson: Turn up your radio. Here’s Pawn Shop Boulevard.
Wink Dinkerson: It’s suntan turnover time with Wink Dinkerson taking you to the top of the hour with a feelin’ just ducky do-wah-ditty-ditty-dum-ditty-do’er from the same guy…Here's Bruce Hilliard with Better Each Day!
