French translation of "The Moon in Daylight". Traduction française de "The Moon in Daylight". A young girl gets lost at the fair. Nothing makes sense - like the moon in the daylight sky. Growing up in church, she knows she is lost without God. Again, she feels lost when her grandpa dies. As an 'A-List' teen she still feels a little lost, and really only wants, "one good friend to stay with me until the end". A change in perspective makes her world right, again. Like looking at the world upside-down in the bottom of a spoon. Just turn it around. Lost. Found.
As a child I'd sit on the floor listening to 45s. Mashmakan's “As Years Go By”, Christie's “Yellow River”, The Beatles' “I Feel Fine”, from the 1050 Chum 30 list. Four guitar chords from the cool kid at school, and I wrote my first song (for a girl) at 12 years old. A cloying cliché-laden confection. I was hooked. I liked putting my feelings down in words, and composing a little tune to carry them. My first LP purchase was Murray McLaughlin's _Song From the Street_. It included "Child's Song" where the words conveyed not just feelings, but a story. In 1972, I remember sitting on the floor (always the floor), at a friend's house, beside a little record player, listening to David Bowie's _The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars_, in its entirety. Now I could not only write down my own feelings and stories, but even create another persona! I rose from the floor ... a musician - well, with a decision. In the 70s I wrote music, went to concerts, and even performed a song or two. In 1977, the Sex Pistols _Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols_ excited in me DIY possibilities of making and playing music. I formed a punk band, which peaked on New Year's Eve 1979, and blew apart soon after. In1980 I gigged my new rockabilly band. In Music studies at university, I was exposed to many styles: Classical, Jazz, Shape Note Hymnody, Rockabilly, Classical Indian, and more. Taking courses at the Royal Conservatory of Music, I developed an interest in polyphony (multiple simultaneous melodies), and it wasn't long before I tried my hand at intersecting melodies in my own compositions. My eclecticism and creativity has been honestly come by - fired in the forge of fascination and experimentation. I am excited to start licencing my songs. This will be a great outlet for my existing pieces, an inspiration to record the unrecorded, and to make more and varied creations. Once again, I rise – this time with the determination to licence my songs.
