House Show Official Video!!

Ha! Got one done already! Been a lot of work to put this pretty thing together. It gives me a smile almost all the way through just to see the joy in peoples’ faces and the fun stuff that got captured in these few short sessions of filming live performances at Meddlesome Lab. I’ve been helping to run shows at that place for nearly 10 years now, so this song certainly has a special place in my heart. I hope you will watch the video and glean just a bit of the cultural enrichment I’ve been blessed to recieve through such a space. This is a subscriber-only video until early next year, so please tell me what you think!! I can still make some changes before it goes out into the hard, cruel world ;0)
Thanks y’all!!

Song #49 – Feather

This is the second to last song of my #100songs project! Nearly complete!! And I want you all to know, you can expect the first of my #100songs music videos by the end of the month!! We have been working on Garbage Night, a favorite of many, but also we’ve been putting together house show footage from Meddlesome Lab for my song House Show!! It’s going to probably be done by the end of the week.


Laura and I are expecting our baby in 10 days, so who knows what might happen between now and then, but I’ve got my green screen studio all set up finally, got my camera, lights and a ton of willpower! This thing is happening, finally, after years and years of planning and working toward it, I am finally beginning my work as a video artist.

I’ll send you all a bunch of pictures next week so you can see the progress. I have to say, though, I still need more subscribers if this is going to work out. If you know anyone who might be interested, please give them a little push. Ideally, I would have a minimum of 100 subscribers. Right now we are 22 strong!!! That’s amazing. You 22 people are my core. You really keep me going through every passing day. It’s not an easy path I have chosen, and I wish I had a bit more recognition for my art, but I also feel extremely lucky to get to do this as my means of survival. I hope you are satisfied with the work I’m presenting you!!


Anyway, in the coming weeks I will release my first video of the 100songs series, House Show. It will be exclusive to you, my fine patrons, and you will be able to offer feedback, what could improve or what you like, marketing techniques, etc, so that when I actually release it into the rest of the world it will be that much better because you will have acted as a sounding board for my work.

Please spread the word and help me build this thing up!! I will certainly match your enthusiasm.

Feather – – © ⓟ 2014 Seth Faergolzia, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Wind blows a feather, blows a feather through my window
Cannot say whatever it’s a clever way the wind blows
Have to say I never ever felt the way I do today

Past is a present helps me see into the future
Coincidence is heaven, helps me feel, feel a purpose
Serendipitous events signal when I turn the rightest way

Don’t let go, don’t let go of dreams you have
You’re getting older, but don’t let go of dreams you have
It will unfold if you just stick tight to your path
The story’s told, it’s just for you to do the math

A banana set in front and under your toes
Makes you slip, slip and fall into what, who knows?
Suddenly something makes you stop and think a different way

You can blame it on a random set of circumstance
You can claim it, call it accident or happenstance
There’s a story to each life, and I prefer believe

Don’t let go, don’t let go of dreams you have
You’re getting older, but don’t let go of dreams you have
It will unfold if you just stick tight to your path
The story’s told, it’s just for you to do the math

Don’t let go, don’t let go, don’t let go,
Don’t let go of dreams you have
It will unfold if you just stick tight to your path
The story’s told, it’s just for you to do the math
Will you ever stop to feel alright?

Song #48 – Yup’s Birthday

Hello, my dear subscribers.  We are in the homestretch now of this massive project.  I am so happy to finally be finishing up and to get started on the video portion of this multi-year endeavor.  Yup’s Birthday… well, I must say, I actually wrote this song nearly 20 years ago, haha!  But!  To my defense in this project, I have actually written more than 100 songs and have more to release than the 50 I originally projected, so I’m not shirking on my responsibilities or cheating… actually I’m giving you guys some extras!!  In the process of writing all the horn parts for my 100songs project I decided to finally give this song the life it deserved.  I mean, it’s been sitting in my back pocket for nearly 20 years… It must be growing tired of constantly getting sat upon.  I think I made a wise choice.  The band (my band 23 Psaegz) really loves playing this one because of its hyper intensity and joyous feeling… plus it’s a great, weird birthday song!!  Can’t go wrong there 🙂  Anyway, I’ve put the song below with lyrics and chords in case you feel insane and want to play this song yourself!!  Thanks a ton for subscribing… After I finish the song project I’ll be moving over to Patreon with this for the video… switch over if you can!!

YUP’S BIRTHDAY – © ⓟ 2014 Seth Faergolzia, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

[A – F#min] Hey give it up, let’s give it up for the party
It’s a mighty fine year
Hey wrap it up, wrap it up like a birthday
Wrap it up, wrap it up, rip it open like a birthday

[B – F#min – A – E] Hey the kid’s eye starlight
Young is younger
If you take a kid from life
Young get older
Holding hands and knobs in gently
Making love and all the babies cry “Wa Ah Ah!!”

[A – F#min] Hey give it up, let’s give it up for the party
It’s a mighty fine year
Hey wrap it up, wrap it up like a birthday
Wrap it up, wrap it up, rip it open like a birthday

[Guitar solo] [B – F#min – A – E] Sorry about that
I didn’t mean it
I thought about it
Nobody means it
When they cause a pain they say
“Why, Why, Why?”
When they look at the hurt they’ve done
“Why, Why, Why?”
When they think about fixing it, say,
“Soon Soon Soon Soon Soon Soon….”
Why not now?

[A – F#min] Hey give it up, let’s give it up for the party
It’s a mighty fine year
Hey wrap it up, wrap it up like a birthday
Wrap it up, wrap it up, rip it open like a birthday

[D] Hey, go pray you, miss smelly
[G] Hey, what are you some kind of a duck
[Eb] Aw, I can’t stand this
[A] Maw, I can’t stand it anymore

What the Jennifer? Holy Kelly!!
Hey, What the Kelly?
Badadum dum

[Eb7 – C7] Dancing on the daybreak
Eating all the roughage off the ground
It’s a healthy way to live
I call you baby, hey baby
That’s what I said
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

[Eb7 – C7] Nobody can say you’re doing nothing wrong
Just like a baby, baby
Nobody can say you’re doing nothing wrong
Just like a baby, baby
Nobody can say you’re doing nothing wrong
Just like a baby, baby, baby, baby….

[Eb7 – C7] Hey give it up, let’s give it up for the party
It’s a mighty fine year
Hey wrap it up, wrap it up like a birthday
Wrap it up, wrap it up, rip it open like a birthday
