Hey Earthling: The Story Behind the Song

I'll be intermittently posting the individual tracks from my "Greatest Misses: A-Sides" this summer, coupled with a story behind each song. The 1st of these is the single, "Hey Earthling"...

A long-lost friend from the late 90's, Keri Davey, was trying to get back into poetry-writing, & wanted
to send me lyrics to put music to. She gave me a much-needed deadline (ie. for the requisite drive to complete it) as it was for a songwriting competition. I wrote some music, and then a couple months later -with the deadline mere days away- I sat down to marry her lyrics to it. Her words/poem totally lead the way, dictating the slightly unusual yet organic musical arrangement perfectly.

  1. This song is so beatiful! It was nice to read the story about this song. I hope you will continue to share these stories here. By the way, as a blogger, you should try this plagiarism checker. Try it.
