At last! A very special song from Christopher’s past!
Right before I first moved to New York after college to seek fame and fortune, I lived at home for a few months. During that time I wrote three new songs. One of them, Just Won’t be the Same to Say Hello, had a profound impact on my early career in the city; within two years, I’d won the New York Songwriter’s Competition and had my first publishing and record deal offers, which I attribute largely to this song. I also had my first request from another artist wanting to record one of my songs (yup, this one).
You might think I would have recorded it on my first album. Or my second, third or fourth albums. But every time I recorded it, I wasn’t satisfied with the way it came out. So my first “potential hit” ended up remaining unrecorded. For decades.
I hope you enjoy this version of the song that, in many respects, got the ball rolling so many years ago! (If you like it, don’t forget to share it!)
A new release from The Basement Tapes:
Go To the City!
I wrote this song in college when I was getting to be a pretty decent guitar player—it gave me a chance to really cut loose in that department. The lyrics were almost an afterthought, quickly thrown together. For that reason, it’s not my finest work as a songwriter, but the music is fun. Enjoy!!
