What happened to the soundclick players on the posts?

Seems Soundclick has finally disabled the embedded player.

I notice overnight all the music links on this blog are gone. Here is a blog post on how much that affected my hits: https://anttismusic...

This is a release of my best vocal songs from summer 2018. I was really struggling with my voice this summer at times.
But every now and then I was pretty happy with the songs.. My own favorite from this summer was "I Love To Chill".
(Not that I reallylisten to my own songs after I write them..) There was some pretty heavy poop going on. Epilepsy
diagnosis, second grandmal seizure (I broke a vertebrae this spring in a seizure, then another in the following seizure
3 months later.) So that is why there is probably a lot of religious undertone.

But I managed to write a couple lighter songs too..

What helped a lot this summer was that I went through all my instrumental songs in May
and chose the best ones.. A lot of these were lyrics written on old instrumental pieces..

Thank you to my wife (Katrina Luode) for inspiring the song "Out Of Confusion", with her poem.

The album release (On Spotify and other places out there) is going to have misprint on the song
"If You Want To Make A Fast Beat", I was compiling the album pretty fast and wrote it down as
"If You Want To Write A Fast Beat". It took me half a day to upload so I am just going to let it be.

Lyrics:


Take It Easy
*******


take it easy
take it slow
let it go
with the flow

cause there is no reason
to worry
about the stuff
we can not control

take it easy
take it slow
let it go
with the flow
like it was meant to be
you and me for eternity

shake the dust
from your feet
of the place
you do not want to be in
take a chance some other place where
we can love until the end of

time
we are always running out of time
oh sweet baby of mine
with your brown puppy eyes

take it easy
take it slow
let it go
with the flow

cause we aint gonna make it out of this
life alive
so give me a kiss
and stop reading those endless bad news
that wont get better
the more you read

take it easy
take it slow
let it go
with the flow
like it was meant to be
you and me for eternity

shake the dust
from your feet
of the place
you do not want to be in
take a chance some other place where
we can love until the end of

time

take it easy

so easy

In The Plains Of Loneliness
*******************

love is like a mountain
it shines above the plains
of loneliness
where the hearts are in distress

love heals
and love kills
love is a symphony
love can be real drag
if the one you love wont love you

alone
in this world
where the love shines
like a mountain

full of broken hearted victims
who once had faith
in the healing power of love
but got burnt, instead

in the plains
of loneliness
where many lose their minds
love shines like a volcano
that erupts in the night

in the plains
of loneliness
give it all you got
its the only game in town
its what life is all about

love is like a mountain
so go on climb
but if it turns to volcano
go on and hide

in the plains
of loneliness
where many lose their minds
in the arid places
where hearts die

in the plains
of loneliness

in the plains
of loneliness

My Georgia Peach
************

when i see you
in the moonlight
when i see you
in the magic of the night

i sense that everything
is gonna be
alright

when the firebugs
do the their thing
and the cicadas
they sing

deep in my heart
i know
i love
you

my georgia peach
my girl
so sweet
my one
and only
love
so true

my love
my life
i will always sigh
when i see you
in the magic
of the night
so right

where the magnolia trees they bloom
where the cicadas whisper i love you
where the bbq is a religion
where i first saw you

my Georgia peach
my girl so sweet
my one and only
love
so true

my love
my life
i will always sigh
when i see you
in the magic
of the night
so right

where the magnolia trees they bloom
where the cicadas whisper i love you
where the bbq is a religion
where i first saw you

my Georgia peach
my girl so sweet
my one and only
love
so true

Now the wind is yours
***************

everything you ever wanted
you had more than enough
but still you could not buy
happiness

I am standing on your grave
and there is nothing more, to say
you kept on trying
to buy what you can not buy

now the wind is yours
and your life is gone
all those days spent chasing
what you never, could reach

it was all in vain
it was all just smoke
blown away
in the wind
forgotten
in time

just some ash
in a urn
just some dust
in the wind
that for a moment
used to walk
used to talk
like a fool

now the wind is yours
and your life is gone
all those days spent chasing
what you never, could reach

all that time
all that effort
to build an empire
nowhere to be seen

driven by ego
like a locomotive
that crushed all the people
who stood in your way

(chorus)

it was all in vain
it was all just smoke
blown away
in the wind
forgotten
in time

just some ash
in a urn
just some dust
in the wind
that for a moment
used to walk
used to talk
like a fool

It's just me and Dean Martin
***********************

so i am walking in the mall in my bubble
listening to music from long ago
when men used to wear suits no matter what
and i am smiling like i was little nuts

at the people who share this ride with me
this little life we take so seriously
we have no control, but we love to think we do
cause it makes us feel a little less blue

It's just me and Dean Martin
and this little coffee in my hand
It's just me and Dean Martin
and all the people in this laa laa land

It's  just me and Dean Martin
and I am drifting through
it's just me and Dean Martin
and I love all of you

man, woman, child
old, young, brand new
happy, sad, neutral
do not know what to think

lost, found, saved
just spending the day
at the mall
like me

and we do not belong here
and we do not belong there
but here we are just
a little bit nuts

chasing the rainbows
trying to find things
to find that feeling
we feel is fleeting

It's just me and Dean Martin
and this little coffee in my hand
It's just me and Dean Martin
and all the people in this laa laa land

It's  just me and Dean Martin
and I am drifting through
it's just me and Dean Martin
and I love all of you

Glory Glory Hallelujah
************

we are lost
lambs
searching
for a light

in this world
so old
in this world
our hearts
broken

by the news
sitting in the pews
searching
for a God

something
to make sense
of it all
why the bad
seem to rise
and the good
seem to fall

glory
glory
hallelujah
we sing
but what is it
to ya?

how many
tears
must fall
by
the wailing
wall

before we find
a light
to shine
so bright

in this world
so dark and gray
waiting for
judgment day

glory
glory
hallelujah
we sing
but what is it
to ya?

how many
tears
must fall
by
the wailing
wall

as the madness spreads
arrogance
lack
of empathy

like gangrene
love supreme
where are you
we need you

glory
glory
hallelujah
we sing
but what is it
to ya?

(Thanks Lenny)


I love to chill
***************

I like my coffee
with piano
and a bass
playing jazz

I like my chords
all seventh
like its going
out of style

I like mid century modern
ranch styles homes
I like my cars with wings
I like songs that swing

I like the open highway
to take me where
the sun it sets
without regrets

I love to chill all the day
like I was in Vegas
when it was all about jazz
I love to chill all the day
I love to chill all the night

play the old blue eyes
or ella with louis
give me some of those beats
those sweet jazz beats

Or Mulatu Astatke
to go with this
Americano high
sweet barista of mine

I think I am in love
I think I found
the right speed

its not too fast
its not too slow
its the speed from half
a century ago

I love to chill
(repeat)
all day
I love to chill
(repeat)
all night

I wish I was in New York
when Frankie boy was young
I wish I was in Miami
for the second go around

of nineteen fifty something
party of the day
back when the people
would child every day

with style
with grace
you do not see
here in now

but there is hope
to go
with this coffee
cup of mine

we can take it slow
we can take it easy
maybe it will catch
start a new romance

we can bring it back
make jill and jack
start humming a tune
that goes like this

I love to chill
(repeat)
all day
I love to chill
(repeat)
all night

Even Broken Clock Is Right (Twice A Day)
****************************

It is coming down in buckets
the world is being flooded
to the rolls of thunder
shaking these walls.

And we got nothing to say
nothing to do
but play these banjos
so might as well duel..

And there is a man on the tv
he is saying it is gonna shine
as I watch through the window
at the rain pouring down down.

He has got another thing coming.
He has got his karma bucket full.

Even broken clock is right.
Twice, a day.

So we burn through the time,
watching tv shine
as the rain pours down
slowly flooding this town.

And we are watching Gunsmoke
and we are watching Star Trek
and we are watching Bonanza
like it was nineteen seventy something.

And we got nothing to say
we got nothing to do
but play this piano
so might as well play the blues.

Even broken clock is right.
Twice, a day.

He Is A Man Of Reason
*************

if there was a way
if there was a light
shining
in the deep dark night

he would believe too
but as it is
he is full of doubt
clouding his mind

he is a man of reason
you can not sway
his faith

he is a man of reason
he belives in
science

he dreams he could live, forever
in a spaceship on the sky
he dreams he could have a paradise
right here on earth, never be dirt

but he is growing older
and he still can not upload his brain
like in the books he likes to read
the dream of immortality
it mocks him

and he wishes he could believe

in a man on the sky

who grants all your wishes

if you you are nice, if you behave

but he is a man of reason
you can not sway
his faith

but he is a man of reason
he belives in
science

so the science it fails him
to bring him comfort and joy
so when he looks at believers
how he wishes, he could believe

that there was a rhyme a reason
a purpose for growing old
that there was final season
up on the the sky, a paradise

If You Want To Make A Fast Beat
******************************

try to keep it light
try to keep it smooth
like nineteen fifty five
cadillac would ride

no need for a drama
no need to fight the tides
do what you can
until the end of time

but you can pick it up a little
give it a little pep
give it a little kick
and the add the snares

if you want to make a fast beat

(repeat)

then tinkle on the keys
on the top of the old chords
everyone has used
a million times before

it does not even matter what you play
just play something that fits the chords

then change the beats a little
to keep it fresh
if you have a fiddle
you can break it down

if you want to make a fast beat

(repeat)

say 12345678
something about love
and dancing

but do not you even try to write a hit song
those things are like a lightning in a bottle
and like moonshine
they tend to mess you up

if you want to make a fast beat

(repeat)

then rinse
and repeat

but do not you expect
to be famous

not that it would be good

anyway son

She Is Amish Girl
****************

where she comes from
they have Jesus
every Sunday
they go to worship

in the churches
built in cornfields
oh she loves her God

she do not wear no fancy clothes
no ribbons in her
or fancy bows

her dress simple
her car is horse
oh she loves her God

she is a Amish girl

every moment
in the fields
in the kitchen
in the school

oh she love to skip and hop
in the choir she takes it from the top
singing glory glory hallelujah
but she has got a temper do not let her fool ya

she is a Amish girl

in the fields of Pennsylvania
blooming like her moms gardenia
she likes to sing and dream of day
when she gives her heart

to a boy who loves God too
wearing simple black and blue
and they can build a home in this
land that she loves

she is Amish girl

and it is all good
it is all right
can i have a hallelujah?
glory glory
amen
Penssylvania represent
buggy life did not choose her
she chose buggy life

she is a Amish girl

Whiskey Blues
*************

it was late one evening
i was drinking whiskey
it had been this way
for a long long time

my baby left me
cause i need my whiskey
but this time it just
was not cutting it

so i went out
to the cold cold night
i froze my face
so i took a sip

to warm my guts
singing whiskey blues
what did i do
i guess
my sins are due

so i walking
i am walking
to the package store

and no one stops
when i lift my finger
i guess they do not care

that i am freezing my ass off

that i am dying

one sip at a time

and i am thinking of my baby

oh she was too good

for someone like me

a wretched wreck

singing whiskey blues

give me some love

dear God

before I die

buried alive

in this damn snow

on the damn side of this road

that just goes and on

like the damn song

whiskey

blues

Queen Of The Night
****************

God knows she is not virgin
God knows she has slept around
God knows she has not had it
as easy as one two three

but she is still breathing
and in certain kind of light
you can still see
the queen of the night

back in the eighties she could
make all the boys cry mercy
when they would see her walking
she made the whole town talking

queen of night
she made people cry
queen of night
it has been hell of a ride

wives to their husbands
and husbands in motels
in loneliest arms
of the beer drinking cheaters

she was gorgeous
she had nothing else
her mama told her
do not you lose your looks

but time goes by

God knows she is not virgin
God knows she has slept around
God knows she has not had it
as easy as one two three

but she is still breathing
and in certain kind of light
you can still see
the queen of the night

now all boys laugh at
her rough cut talking
they point and stare then
they start mocking her

back in the eighties
they would have cried
they would begged
just for a night

from the queen

of the night

oh she was queen

alright

queen

of the night

She is small town girl
**************

She is small town girl.

(That was easy) :D

One Day At A Time
************

one day at a time
we fly through this life
we fly so close
there is no pause

--

Out of confusion
**************

we keep on doing the sin
we keep on saying the words
when nothing else makes sense
we keep on blaming each other

repetation is your friend
keep on chanting till the end
this is true, this i know
when you are lost, adrift in life

follow some guy
you chose with dice
let him lead you
to the bitter ending, baby

out of confusion
we follow blindly
out of confusion
do things, unsightly

out of confusion
repeat the thing
out of confusion
you hear me sing

we do these things
God knows why
we do these things
watch painted wall dry

have more babies
game all day and night
work until you find
it is your time to die

out of confusion
find your illusion
out of confusion
your personal delusion

give your pledge
place your bet
in repetation
it built the nation

go to the bar every night
give your heart to the

light

tell yourself

this is true, this i know
when you are lost, adrift in life

follow some guy
you chose with dice
let him lead you
to the bitter ending, baby

out of confusion
we follow blindly
out of confusion
do things, unsightly

out of confusion
repeat the thing
out of confusion
you hear me sing

we do these things
God knows why
we do these things
because we have time

to kill

before we die

out of confusion
find your illusion
out of confusion
your personal delusion

Out of Confusion

Out of Confusion..

Gone
***


Its a summer night
and the people are going crazy
its a summer night
and there is dancing on the streets
its a summer night
and everybody is drunk
its a summer night
and the cats meow in night

and high up in a house
there is a old woman in blouse
thinking about the days
when she used to go out

when the men would come to her
pick her up and whistle
long long time ago
in a world that is now

Gone
with Dubstep
and deejays
now its all robots
and Ais

and she cries
as a flying car
zips past her window
with lovers in the back
their heads connected with wires
making love in their in their minds

gone

there is something wrong

the time never stopped

its just kept going on

until everything she knew

was

gone

and she misses the cell phones
oh those simpler times
way before the headjack
and the comatose eyes

and the people are dancing
to music in their minds
dancing in silence
in a world that is not right

and not all people
 are people
some of them are robots
and not everyone
is here
some of them
are

gone

there is something wrong

the time never stopped

its just kept going on

until everything she knew

was

gone

gone

(repeat)
