Demo: 

Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

This is a medley. I had three songs in varying stages of completion written to @cindyrella's lyrics and it just felt easier and quicker to put them all in one medley. Not quite rhapsody because there's not too much contrast between the parts but still in the same several-songs-in-one style of other "Oh, womans name!"- demos I've done this year. You can hear from the applause where the next song starts like I was in Las Vegas or something. Smile

Thank you, Cindy, for all the lyrics.

Lyrics: 

- Sparkle -

Maybe you felt
My eyes on you
You looked my way
Like I'd hoped you'd do

I saw your eyes sparkle
With the fireworks up above
I knew you were remarkable
I knew I was in love
( X 2 )

There was magic
There was splendor
I knew this night
Was one I would remember

I saw your eyes sparkle
With the fireworks up above
I knew you were remarkable
I knew I was in love
( X 2 )

- Granny's Cocoa Gravy -

I'd sit on that old white stool
So I could sit up high
My mouth would be watering
She say, it'd be ready by and by

She'd hum while she cooked
Some old gospel tune
When she was done stirring
She'd let me lick the spoon

Granny's cocoa gravy
My favorite as a child
She had that perfect touch
Granny's cocoa gravy
So creamy and mild
I'd always eat too much
Of Granny's cocoa gravy
( X 2 )

- Keep On Making Music -

Keep on making music
Just enjoy what you do
Keep on making music
Don't matter if you're good
Pick up a drumstick
Learn to play guitar
Keep on making music
You'll shine just like a star

He was playing his banjo
When lightning lit up the sky
He was pickin' to the end

She was playing her cowbell
Though she was a little shy
It was a way for her to blend

Keep on making music
Just enjoy what you do
Keep on making music
Learn a song or two
Pick up a drumstick
Learn to play guitar
Keep on making music
You'll shine just like a star
You'll shine just like a star
You'll shine just like a star

These are all great lyrics albeit quite different and it is truly amazing Klaus how you weave them together into a coherent and wonderful medley. What a great tribute to Cindy’s wonderful writing! Love it!

Nicely constructed medley - I like the 'live' feel you've given it. Really adds some atmosphere. It also makes for a good showcase of Cindy's lyrics.

Looking at the lyrics...section one is terrific...section 2 is terrific...Granny's cocoa gravy is terrific...keep on making music is terrific. Cindy, you do it every time so I'm not surprised and I learned early this year that you have a super talent with lyrics. Great job on this. By the way, Klaus has a super talent too and I've known this for a few years. I'm ready for the audio...hold. guitar intro...sounds like a concert...vocals now...sounds good...can clearly understand the lyrics...good melody...nice-sounding guitar...second song now...oh this is Granny's cocoa gravy...sounds good...good melody...buh buh da da doo....another song now...keep on making music...she was playing her cowbell....now she was a little shy....keep on making music...just keep doing what you do...you'll shine just like a star. Very nice Klaus and Cindy.

I remember the Gransma's gravy lyrics! It's pleasing to hear them set to music, along with the other two. Love the vocal melody of 'keep on making music', it's as if it has airplay and I think hey, that's a fine song with an appealing melody. Lovely medley!

Clever use of the background ambiance to collect these together into a live performance medley. Solid writing by Cindy and lovely melodies and singing. I'd enjoy hearing this in person, for sure!
