Tom at Free Times Café, Toronto, March 31 9 PM

March 27, 2009

Ah, my folk singin’ days.

Back in the 80s, I came back from a European
backpacking tour, walked into the Kensington
market, saw a new café just about to open,
walked in, and introduced myself to Noel Paolo,

What the Moon Saw

February 23, 2009

Okay, so I was visiting a town called Stoupa just outside
Kardimili, Greece one year. It’s on the Peloponnesos, not
far from Kalamata, where all the best olives are born of
those craggy olive trees with the most improbable
silhouettes.

I was there at the behest of a lovely woman from Toronto by the
name of Beth who introduced me to her friend, the late Robert
Crisp.

But Is You ‘Good in Bed’?

October 2, 2008

I can’t believe this one is not in several movies already. Maybe I
should check again. It’s called ‘Good in Bed‘. It’s a bit like the kind
of thing Dinah Washington used to sing. She had a very randy

Wacky Game Show Theme

June 9, 2008

This is a tribute to Wink Martindale.

I had this tune in my head for years. It
was my daffy send up to the unlikely,
concocted emotions you’d witness
in a television game show.

This is the Sound of My Voice

April 30, 2008

This is a tune I pulled out of my
throat clearing sound one time when
I encountered a girl who wanted
to sing but was imprisoned in
some strange and common
affectations.

Get This Song in a Movie, Fast

March 25, 2008

Pal Darcy Got Married.

A year later it was time for a gift.

It’s supposed to be paper, for the first
anniversary, but I thought that zeros and
ones would be good too.

Get My Song in a Movie…

February 19, 2008

I’ve got a song to play for you.

It’s called “Break Your Heart”. It has been a
commitment of long standing in my songwriting
career that if anyone is going to be sad and lonely
and busted up and hurt, it’s going to be the other
person and not me!
