In May of 1985 I was working at Channel 2 (KPRC-
1985 was a time of continuing sectarian violence in Northern Ireland. It had been going on since the early 1600’s but had started most recently in 1973 on “Bloody Sunday” and continued. When we arrived the marching season had begun. The Orange Men’s marching societies were protestant organizations that would march through the catholic sections of Belfast. We were staying at the Hotel Intercontinental which was the “most bombed hotel in the world” at that time while across the street was the Crowne Pub which was one place where anyone could go and find peace and a pint of Guinness Stout. It was a trip of contrasts that have finally found their way into a song.
Moon Dance is a study in time and the marking of time by the moons dance though our lives every 28 days. It pulls on our bodies and our emotions and illuminates our dance with each other.
The Moments Choice looks at those things in our lives (other than death and taxes) that remain solid and that we can count on. More and more I find that while there are many possible explanations for the way things are in the world the one immutable things I see is that we have this moment and the rest is just interesting possibility. This will no doubt be one of the songs on a future project I plan call the “Animists Hymnbook”.
A Simple Love Song was an anniversary gift to my partner in crime and life, Cynthia Whiddon Green. She has been my inspiration and companion in my musical travels in both writing and performing. I truly do plan some day to write a simple love song but it seems everything I do becomes complicated. I do hope to spur thoughtful conversation but just once I would like to write a simple song.
You can find the words and chords to these and the rest of the songs on the lyrics page in the music section.
