king of kings

I know – it’s been ages I’ve forgotten how this thing works.

Written a lot of songs though. This one may not be a masterpiece but it kicks along and delivers a bit of punch.

Jet lagged after Jamaica the tune jumped into my head. I think I’d heard someone on the radio and been reminded that you just can’t argue logic around religion. Faith means believing against all logic and the less sense it makes to believe the more faithful you are so well done!

If you pray your village won’t slide into the sea and then it does prayer still works, it just wasn’t the right thing to ask for.

Anyway in my jet lagged state I imagined the end of the song being a bigger and bigger chant of “praying to the kings kings” steamrollering over a yelping version of me. Maybe I should have done that, instead I did this!…

king of kings : video click to play!!

oh the video is kind of distracting from the meaning in places so the words are below; I did it quick and the kids liked it so here it is – hope I didn’t go too far (it’s not very subtle).

Look after yourselves atheists! and if you are religious don’t hurt anyone ūüėČ

‘this is us now’

I had a week off and wrote 2 songs Р(this is one of them)

I got¬†the melody¬†one day packing up¬†to go camping¬†– it was pouring with rain but we’re English.¬†¬†By the time we got to a field outside Cheddar¬†it was fine. ¬†Next morning¬†¬†the sun came out hot, everything slowed down and ¬†I did¬†the words for the second Verse (which make sense of what I already had) eating cornflakes and sitting in the mouth of the ¬†tent.

Verse 1 – when we met

Verse 2 – where we are now

I hope it catches life as a string of valuable moments.

For the film I searched the computer for put  old camera clips  Р there were more than I could use of the children and almost none of me and Carol (I must change that) but it started to fit well so I wanted to finish it and show it to Carol, Nathaniel and Laurie on my birthday.  Carol liked it because she was in it (and looking foxy).

The 100’s of still shots near the end were taken by our friend Chris Porter. We did them in the back garden while I span us round as quick as I could in a borrowed computer chair (I took out the shots¬†where we fell off).

I’ve had the tune stuck in my head ever since hope you like it too.
