The Other Side of Paul - musical edition

All work and no play makes for a dull Paul... or something like that. Life can't be just about work, and fundraising, and all of those important things - one needs to have other interests as well. Fortunately, I have plenty, including music. My old band, Tall Poppies, is reforming after 17 years for a reunion gig and a new album in the fall, which is very exciting. As part of the reunion process, we're bouncing song demos back and forth. Here's one I wrote, sent a version to Mike Trainor in New England, and received a much better demo in return.

I remain the only guy on the planet who would write a song about unrequited love inspired by David Beatty, Lord Nelson, and Ingrid Bergman... more or less.

Now... back to work!
