“Livin’ In My Heart & Head” (Demo, 2004)

I’d started writing the main riff for this song in the summer of 1990 while in Ithaca, NY, where I lived at the time, however, didn’t finish and turn it into “Livin’ In My Heart & Head” until some time later–perhaps the mid-90s, when I was all ready living in NYC.  It turned out to be a song about spending lots of time in my own imagination, which I had been doing quite a bit at the time.

I’ve since recorded this song in a recording studio three times, this one being the third; I’d had the bass, drums and trumpet backing tracks all ready recorded by members from the last incarnation of my band, The Sound of Monday, which concluded at the very end of 2003.  On the previous two recordings of this song, I hadn’t really had the freedom to solely produce it the way I saw fit, so, for fun, in 2004 added what you have here.  Though I’m not sure I knew quite what I wanted, it certainly more accurately reflects my sensibilities.  In any case, I had a great time doin’ it…enjoy!
