Songs About Relationships by Dean Backholm and Bruce Hilliard with host Bruce Hilliard

Thank you for being here with me, Bruce Hilliard, with a warm spring day and actually you don’t need to point out that you’re not “being here” with me. But in spirit with ears to listen and enjoy a few original songs. Many of the Better Each Day shows are musician interviews with the famous or the hopefuls. 

I love em all but here’s some of the music listeners have been asking for and I’m happy to deliver in under a half hour or you get a free pizza or something of equal value. A true Kodak moment. A true selfie occasion with videos and images to attach and text. The Kodak moment of 2022.

And there’s nothing more valuable than a good relationship with another person. I was invited to a birthday party last Friday and it was a room of people I know and admire.

Sweetest Thing I’ve Ever Known: Have you ever had a time when you looked at a couple, or a situation or even a relationship of someone elses and said “That’s so cool, people getting together?” The people are cool but the relationship is beyond words. This song is about relationships. Two sisters. Relationships may be the sweetest most precious thing in the world. The ragamuffin troubadour in this lyric wants one but all he has in exchange is one song for the sweetest thing I’ve ever known.

My friend and incredible singer/songwriter (I taught him everything he knows) Dean Backholm and I will entertain you for about a half hour starting with Dean-O and his song Montreal.
