This newly dug song of mine seemed like a good candidate to kick off the SongMine. After all, in recent weeks the stock casino crashed and burned, the housing bubble burst. Turns out they were illusions all along.  Which just confirms my long held belief that it is the business people who are the deluded dreamers and the artists who place their faith in real substance.  We have our art, no matter what. Art retains its value.  Beethoven's 9th still has its grandeur. The Mona Lisa still sort of smiles. You've still got those poems you're writing, or your photography, or your play or your ballet or your knitting. I've still got these songs.  And the Buckley Smith charcoal behind me in this video still comes to life whenever I look at it.  So who comes out ahead in the end?

Good Ship Friendship

Argh!  A bunch o' pesky preschool varmints asked me write a song about their voyage from tots to full-fledged kidhood, using their words!  So I wrote this song, my talented wife Debrah Lemattre shot this video, and we all had a rollicking good time singing it.
