Unrecorded Songs



“Song possibilities are constantly swimming around in my head. They can start out as an idea or emotion, out of my own life experience or from the past. The good songs demand to be written, but it can take a lot of time and work to make them whole.”

“I have dreamed songs and helped give them almost effortlessly, but for me song writing is usually more craftsmanship.”

“It’s also like writing poetry.”

“Words and melody often come alive together.”

“Here are a few as yet unrecorded songs that you can at least get a glimpse of in lyrical form. I hope to record them over the coming year.”

Allan Rankin
