Song #4

Woo Hoo! This marks the first month of the One Song Per Week effort! To celebrate, I made an album in the Snocap store called 'The First Month' and you can get all 4 songs for just $2.99! That means you save...like...loads of money! Now, back to our regularly scheduled blog...

This song is based on the Persian myth of Laili and Majnun (think Romeo and Juliet, but way way earlier) and brought into the scope of things going on in my life.
A friend of mine gave to me a poem that he scribbled down from memory after we had been discussing luck and love and heartache. It was by Rumi, and it goes:
'Come come whoever you are
wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving
ours in not a caravan of despair
even if you have broken your vows a thousand times
come, come yet again,
come...'

Song #4 is called Laili

UPDATE!
There is a new feature you might have noticed. From the little store below you can now purchase any of the songs I have posted so far for a mere $0.99 OMG! So cheap!? Yep. It also goes to me (ME!) and not some giant evil corporation. So don't be afraid of it!!!

LOVE IT> I have been trying to figure out what your voice reminds me of. I finally figured it out. It's like Shudder to Think or Into Another. It's been sooooo long since I have listened to those records..uh, they actually ARE records too. yikes I think I'm getting old.
ANYWAY I can't wait for more music!

this song is awesome. i really, really like it. and it's cool to think about a song of a girl's name that is more than just a song about a girl. great job!

Very good. Like the guitar solo around 1:40-ish.

If I could, I'd have you play at my birthday party, alongside a clown stripper making baloon genitals. :)

I've watched a movie about it, but the girl's name is Laila instead of Laili (??). Anyway, you sure have proof your talent here. Well done!!

I really love this one.

Love the guitar solo, too. There's a little country in there somewhere.

Fantastic!

I'm off reading about Rumi now. Do you know the title of that poem?

Beautiful. I'm so happy (but not surprised )to see your blog fan base grow considerably in your first month. You are very talented and your passion pervades your music effortlessly. I love that this song is based off a myth and merges with your own experience and feelings. Again, so beautiful.

I always return to Joseph Campbell when I think about following my own dreams and "bliss" and thought I'd share this with you:

"If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are -- if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be." -Joseph Campbell

Cheers.

Not raining up here yet. It is the most gorgeous autumn day here...blue skies and leaves turning with that crisp air. I really do like the rain though and don't dread it as i used to. Yes, Escape from New York pizza is so good. Your mention on my blog has pretty much guaranteed that I'll be strolling up there this weekend for a slice! Thanks for stopping by my blog again. I really do love this latest song!
