Wen he gets (up) in de mornin' he feels bad, and wen (he) goes to bed at night he feels wusser. He tinks dat his body is made ob ice cream, all 'cept his heart, and dat - dat's a piece ob lead in de middle. All sorts ob sights are hubbering around, and red monkeys is buzzing about his ears... (D)em's what I calls de bloos - Sam Jonsing, in an 1839 New Orleans newspaper

Frankie 2...

A new composition.  In the polishing phase, but I played it for an audience for the first time today and it seemed to go down okay so I thought I'd get it down on a quick recording (handheld Olympus thing rather than any flash mics or anything).

As if often the case, it is the confluence of several ideas.  I was messing about with lyrics for a sing, at the same time as messing about with a raggy progression intended to be an instrumental, at the same as thinking it would be cool to do a modern day version / extension of John Hurt's Frankie.

Somehow, that melting pot resulted in this tune: Frankie & Albert for the Angry Birds generation.

On Soundcloud cos I cant get a decent sounding MP3 small enough.

Great tune!  Would love to hear that once you get it done up with good mics & co!  (The crowds shouts More! More!)

The lyrics are really spot on, and fit the melody perfectly.  Good stuff.  I'd say that was a well thought out song.  Keep up the good work.

Thanks folks.  I'm half way to thinking it needs one more verse but we'll see!

That's a catchy little ragtime tune Simon! Well done!
