Brief Notes about the tunes on "Until"...
"Sad Cafe" is tongue in cheek lament from the male perspective about two, uh, star(bux)-crossed lovers.
"Seas Of Discontent" was written after listening to a lazy blockhead I know whine about how terrible his life is.
"The Secret Detective" is a tribute to the hard-boiled private eyes in all those nifty B&W film noir movies. I am imagining myself in that context as I observe the people I interact with on a daily basis.
"I Remember" is remembering falling in love.
"Intrepid Existence" is just how I think and feel.
"Won't You Let Me In?" is just the truth and my wife loves me anyway. So there.
"Effort" is what is takes.
"Already There" is where you might be if you don't know where you're going.
"Until (Ethan's Song)" On July 24th, 2002 Rena gave birth to our first child: our son, Ethan Aaron Schlegel. We are having the time of our lives as parents and that is what this song is about.
"Like That" was written for my wife's birthday and was a perfect excuse for me to pretend I was the Gershwin Bros. writing and Sinatra crooning.
I admire some of the music of Frank Zappa, the Beatles, the Police, and George Gershwin and this is the reason I have included them as influences or "sound-a-like" references.
Thanks for your time. Enjoy the tunes.
