The scoop: Christopher posts new creations here—mostly music, but also the occasional original article, illustrated poem or music video—every month. (His new music tracks are also usually available everywhere across the Web, although you can usually download them here for free.) He’s currently releasing tracks from two brand new album projects, which he refers to as “musical books.” (For the full story on the two album projects — and why he thinks of them as “musical books” — click here!) This month, while he’s finishing up a big production number from Wild Ideas for release in September, he’s releasing another track from his collection of early songs and recordings, The Basement Tapes!
Please stop by every month to see and hear what’s new—and if you like what you find, please share it with your friends!
THIS MONTH: A new track from The Basement Tapes collection: The Hots!
Soon after moving to New York City, I realized that I’d written a number of songs about love, but — unlike many artists on the radio — I hadn’t yet tackled the subject of lust! (I didn’t want my credentials as a healthy young male to be revoked!) The Hots ended up being kind of a parody of sex-filled pop songs. (Listeners of a certain age and musical taste may recognize a sly musical reference to a sappy ballad from the late 1960s near the end of the song!)
In case you missed them, here are the previous releases from Christopher’s project: Wild Ideas — Songs From the Edge! (Click on the images below to hear the songs!)
