Breaking Up is Hard to Do

Deep_&_Meaningluls I didn’t have a clue what it was like to break up when I sang that old ‘Breaking Up is Hard to Do, song, way back when. I heard it recently on the radio and for the first time, actually thought about it’s quaint old lyrics, and the painful break-ups we experience along love’s way.

When life is bustling and family and friends are planning happy get-togethers, what if you can’t get together with the one you love?  What if you recently broke up, and everyone’s trying to cheer you up? … and it makes you feel even more down? – like they don’t really ‘see’ you.  I hope this song, in some small way, might help see you through …

More Love

Two hearts beating as one – that’s how it seemed to be
Suddenly you’re breaking up. It’s hard, and hard to believe
You thought alike, or so you thought, then a rift began to show
Now you’re drifting poles apart
From a soul you hardly know

When do you sing your own song? How can you cross the sea?
When do you give up hope that things could change if only …
Letting go is hard, I know. You lie awake in the dark
Still the tears fall. You gave your all
You got so much love in your heart

You got more love, much more love to give
You got more life, much more life to live
Through the grieving, and the lows,
Keep believing in yourself. I can’t help feeling
You got more love tomorrow to receive
More love

In times gone by we found a mate and gave ourselves away
Our hearts could break only once
And if they did, they had to stay that way
These days life is kinder – we can find ourselves again
You would say to me, I know
So I say, beautiful friend

You got more love, much more love to give
You got more life, much more life to live
Through the grieving, and the lows
Keep believing in yourself – I can’t help feeling
You got more love tomorrow to receive
Hang on in there, there’s more love to receive
More love … in it’s own time,  more love

Kids Sing Mr Tambourine Man Video

You’ve heard of our Kids Sing Bob Dylan album? We did a video of it too – The Starbugs Sing Mr Tambourine Man. It went viral. BUT once we clocked over a million hits, it was taken offline!? We were informed, (probably by a machine) that it had ‘unsuitable content for children.’ Take a look and see what you think … Luckily a keen fan posted it on their page and You Tube hasn’t caught up with them yet – so take a look while you can!
AI, (Artificial Intelligence) systems decide what music & videos are placed where nowadays. I guess AI is experiencing birthing problems …

Meanwhile let’s credit the kids. One viewer, commented, “That is simply incredible. I’m a lifetime Dylan fan, and I’ve never heard a better lead vocal of Tambourine Man than that little girl is doing. She is a truly great singer.”   Yes. At only 9 years old, Jessie has already won several world singing competitions … Then there’s Sarah, Ben, Roisin and  Jessica – they’re all fantastic! Pop into the UCA Music website and take a listen to the sample audio clips: make sure you scroll right down (on the thin red line), to hear them take Forever Young, and many other tracks, into new realms.

Make their day boosting their viewing numbers, leaving a comment, and spreading the word.

Fun in the studio

David Radha & Geoff

NOVEMBER: The single is out – yey! I can’t wait to get onto the next one; I’m working on chord charts for all my songs in preparation, as I’m not sure what song we’ll tackle next … 

Working on kids songs in the studio at present, plus composing and recording some songs to help children learn to read.

Here’s  David Antony Clark (left), sound engineer, Geoff Duncan and your truly. Geoff is about to launch power-chord land on electric guitar –   Geoff, you’re great! And so is Evan Williams, our wonderful drummer.  Thanks guys!
