My songs

When I've got nothing better to do, I write a song or two. Sometimes I use other people's tunes, sometimes I use my own. Sometimes I'm very serious [On such occasions I have been known to produce more or less exact translations of the original lyrics], some times... Well, I guess I'm not then.

Essential! A modified version of this subsite including a special front page was included on the cover CD of Amiga Format issue 129 (november 1999). The link to my site is on a page with the heading "Essential Websites", so you can see this site is essential! Now go read it! ;)

As a kind of experiment I have decided to put some of my works on the web and see if I get any reactions from the common people. Run it up the flagpole and see who salutes it, as some people say. Right below this is a list of all (?) my English language songs to date. There may be more later, so leave a bookmark here and come back next week!

In cases where I have written a song to someone else's (generally known) tune, the original title is shown in [square brackets] after the link.
