Hi, Eva. First of all, I don't know what I'm doing ... I don't know anything about the music business.

However, I listened to your sample, and I'm keen enough to know, you have a beautiful singing voice. Absolutely lovely.

I wrote a 'birthday' song a few weeks ago, to the tune of "My Favorite Things." Mom loved it, and that gave me the idea to have it recorded and give that to her for her birthday, a few weeks from now. Beyond that, I don't have any idea what to expect from this process.

Is that something you would be interested in doing? I'm thinking music isn't necessary, just the recorded song. Or perhaps I could find someone to add music to your recording, just to try a few things. (Or do you compose as well? The music is already "written" of course, but there are thousands of possible approaches.)

What do you say? Can you help a fella out?



PS - here it is. Definitely not high art, but kind of fun.

The Birthday Song (to the tune of "My Favorite Things")

Brownies with peanuts and ice-cream-like flavors;
Long distant phone calls and gifts from the neighbors;
Cheerful balloons and big slices of cake;
These are the reasons why birthdays are great.

Pancakes for breakfast with syrup and butter;
Hot chocolate drinks and a sweet note from mother;
Present surprises that shipped with the freight;
These are the reasons why birthdays are great.

Movies to watch now and books for the reading;
Hot pizza pie that's all set for the feeding;
Laughing with friends and then sleeping in late;
These are the reasons why birthdays are great.

When the back aches
When the hairs gray
When the days turn cold
I simply remember the good times I've had
And then I don't feeeeeeel …. soooo old.
