'Sad Song' lyric video 

Here is the last installment of the lyric videos from “The Shoestring Sessions.” This one is for “Sad Song.” While it is undoubtedly a sad song itself, it is meant to be more of a tribute to sad songs. 

What's your favorite sad song?

 

Lyric video: 'Such a Wreck' 

Here's the lyric video for "Such a Wreck." This is one of the oldest songs on the new album. (Either this one or "Shotgun" is the oldest. They were both written before "Public School" was even released.) I'm glad I finally recorded it. And a little bit of trivia: I rewrote the bridge lyrics for the album.

Lyric video for 'Life on Mars' 

As I mentioned when "The Shoestring Sessions" was reissued, I planned to circle back to the lyric videos that I had previously released and re-post them with the new and improved audio on them. We're now at that stage. Here's the video for "Life on Mars."

And what do you mean this planet doesn't look like Mars? 

Lyric video: 'Shotgun'  

Another Thursday, another lyric video for you. This one is for "Shotgun." It's about a guy secretly in love with his best friend's girl. It's sort of my own "Jessie's Girl," if you will.

 

 

Lyric video: 'Static' 

Here's the lyric video for "Static."

A few tidbits on this song:

1. This is the only song I've recorded to date where you won't hear an acoustic guitar anywhere on it.

2. This is the only song I've ever started writing by goofing around on Garage Band on my iPad. That was where I came up with the chorus and then I built the song around that.

3. How amazing is Jose Mora on the lead guitar on this song?
