Sound fills our life with richness when we listen to music that stimulates our emotions, allows us to converse meaningfully with excitement, often clutters our lives so that we want to escape from it, and can relax us when we listen to the rush of water over rocks in a stream. Sound is my tool. I am writing a patter song in cut time about sound. It will be a fun song that should put a smile on your face. The words will spill out fast so you will have to listen carefully. So far it is fun writing it, too. Here’s a couple lines near the beginning of the song: So much sound. It’s like an out of control merry-go-round Spinning around in my head. The lyrics just ran off fast from my pencil lead almost at the speed they are meant to sung. Tomorrow I will put musical sound to the words and hear what it will actually sound like. …. Well, I finished the song today putting it in cut time and started working on fine tuning the lyrics to the patter melody. Kids, adults,…people of all ages should smile while listening to this one. The faster it is sung, the more fun it is! I love to see smiles on people’s faces while they listen to what I wrote. I call it for now Sounds All Around. My dog Rose got a verse in the song. Because she is a wonderful person/dog, she deserves much more than a verse. One day I will write an entire song about her and what she means to me. I don’t think this song will make it into my first album that will be finished soon, but it will make it into the next one. I can’t believe I have advanced that far to think about album #2. I think I’d like to write songs for an album all about important people in my life who have influenced me and throw in some fun stuff to lighten it up. I have had such a nice response to my published music that I would like to thank Cathy Nitura St. Angelo in Nevada, Jerrym119 in Colorado, Shawn Stevenson in Maryland, Enisa Toromanovic stationed in the US Army in Europe, and Justin Gilbert26 in Washington for listening collectively to 19 of my songs! Also, Jezzica Stone, Alejandro Moro, Linda Kiary, and Thomas Trosclair have been listening to my music a lot! I need to visit O’Donnell’s Bar in Ireland! People visiting there are listening to my music. I also have two new declared fans: Michael Jansen, in Germany, and ccepuran in Daytona Beach, Florida. Michael enjoyed She’s Got A Way and And Then You Were gone and ccepuran liked A Game I Shouldn’t Have Played Along With and You’re Beautiful And I Want You To Be. It gives me a nice feeling when I receive that kind of interest for my work. Reading my blog is also taking-off. Claudenoise, zim_fanpage, pandemonium group, Ras Ablaze, northmaine973, KingstonLA, Christopher Meersman, Matthiew Desormeau, and members of the Voices of Christmas Caroling Group deserve a big thank you for visiting my blog. Thank you for the thumbs up! You can listen to my music at joshuaelimusic.com, soundcloud.com on my channel, Joshua Eli Kranz, and watch me perform my music on YouTube.com on my channel, Joshua Eli Kranz, and on radioairplay.com under Joshua Eli, my preferred performing artist name. Your interest in my music moves me on!! Rose, our singing mini-dachshund is on the mend, so say her doctors. Soon I just may write a song just for her to celebrate! Very soon you will be able to hear some new music I’ve written. I am going into the recording studio. Thank you for visiting and reading!!! I welcome your ideas.
