Description
Good grief, here's another one I COMPLETELY forgot doing, although it appears I did it only 2 months ago! Not sure what was going on--maybe overdosing on Flonase back then or something.

Thanks for listening!

Michael

"Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone" was written by Sam H. Stept and Sidney Clare in 1929, and who never wrote anything of note after this that I'm aware of (although rumor has it they wrote the lyrics to some Ludacris songs of several years ago).

PS: If any of you would like to take this and play "Has Anybody Seen My Gal"? over it, it works perfectly--same chord construction (tested it myself!)

Original arrangement and accompaniment: Alan McPike
Vocal: Spanky McFarland

Thanks Steve
And as to your generous offer, I'll keep that in mind (I'd like to come up with an original and actually working on several things, so will let you hear them when completed) Take care now, Michael

Actually..
..and quite candidly, in my relationship, that's what I watch! Then again, only guilty pleasures and pretty much all the TV viewing I do per day--maybe an hour or even less. Thanks again Andrew--take care now, Michael

Swinging!
This has all your usual flair. Lively and dynamic. Excellent (as is the backing track you use - Alan McPike's seem a notch up from most). Much enjoyed.

Oh, Alan works with the pros over there in Britain and it's no wonder he sounds so good. Thanks for listening and for the kindly words--you take care now! Michael

KILLER !!
As usual ... I DO(finally)have one small 'quibble' ... The horn arrangement, while being 'spot on', sounds unrealistic ... not the part but the actual sounds themselves ... 'better'(objectively speaking)'sounding' samples perhaps? ... That's just me ... instant download in any event! :)

"Murder She Says" (old song title)
Thanks Scotty--I believe Alan performed this on a more conventional organ, not the Bespoke which produces more realistic sounds. So taken as an organ arrangement I think it is incredible. Thanks for listening and glad you enjoyed my singing.

And glad to see you back! As to your request, I would love to but right now I'm more engaged in collaborations involving my new keyboard and original things, but I truly appreciate the offer to work with you guys again. Perhaps JD might be available? You take care now, Michael

Some of my patter--I need to come up with some fresh material because I know I've used some of that business before (but to be honest, I really don't prepare much of that stuff--it just comes out of my mouth without warning--like most of what I say!) You take care now and appreciated your dropping in, Michael

Dave Baby!
How's it going? Well, this tune--yanno, I discovered it when I was around 16; I heard it sung by a performer named Gene Austin, who is unjustly forgotten today (he was the first artist to sell a million records with "My Blue Heaven" by the way) and I've always liked it since. Thanks for dropping by Dave--you take good care now! xox

Actually, I'm much more fonder of Judge Joe Brown (I swear, he gets a look in his eyes that is capable of burning holes through your cathode tube), but Judy has her moments (I feel like her at times). Thanks for stopping by--and take good care now! Michael

Just excellent again Michael, actually up there with my favourites of yours which is an elite list, well done mate

Neil
Thanks for just being you. I can tell listening to this that it was one of those deals I mixed using Mixcraft (Mixcraft has a bit different reverb option than Adobe Audition, which I've been using since 1937. I think it it produces a less diffused sound, which might be an improvement--not sure of course!) Thanks for listening and appreciated hearing from you buster--take care now! Michael

Stan!
It really is a bittersweet song when you analyze it and especially done up tempo (but can't be any weirder than the aforementioned Bobby Darin's "Artificial Flowers", a song that has lyrics the musical presentation doesn't quite match really!) Thanks again Stan--glad to hear from you! Michael

Could you
possibly come up with an original based on Judge Judyisms like: "Don't piss on my leg and tell it's raining."...? If anyone could do that, it'd be you. Such fun. Thanks.

Now that's an idea!
Although my favorite moments are when the litigant's eyes start drifting around while speaking to her, so she'll wrap her knuckles on the podium and point to her eyes--always a highlight for me. I also enjoy when she refers to someone as "Genius over here" or "The Lovely Miss ______" over there, etc. Thanks again--and take good care now, Michael

Hmmm....Mr Swiss Cheese Brain eh?
Trouble is whenever I find anything in the vaults that I have forgotten and then play it ,it soon becomes readily apparent why I forgot it ...it was a deliberate effort to shut out a shudderingly terrible performance of one kind or another.....not you though,you forget absolute stormers ....no fair !!
