❔❔❔ULTIMATE 80’S NAME THAT TUNE❕❕❕
Warning!! This may make you crazy if you heard it before like myself and others !
(And no dissin the piano… going from my memory as an 8 yr old kid here…😅😅😅)
But seriously, now I’m jamming this thing!
Goes much further I’ll call it an original!
Still bugging me since I posted before.
I have googled all kinds of combinations of those lyrics.
I have watched sooo many YouTube 80’s compilations.
I have asked Facebook peeps and groups only to find…
🤔🤔🤔nobody including me can get it but *people do recognize it!!!*😕🙃😜
So crazy if you lived through that period and heard it, as I can hear that part and the voice, but the identity of the artist is still shrouded in mystery!
All I know is…
1) Early to mid 80’s
2) Male vocalist
3) Lyrics may not be accurate as nothing comes up and I was 8
This thing should go viral so we can all find it lol!!!

I know that Hayden did come to Victoria ages back as the friend who got me listening saw him here.
Makes me wonder if he got the name from Elk Lake which everyone passes on their way to Victoria.
Starting this series off is an older album that is so worth it I worked at a cafe that had it as required listening for when things got stressful. It is so superchill, well crafted and has still wonderful hooks that stay with you.
Start here and dive into Hayden’s discography that you may not have heard but really should…
Really excited to put this out!
Recorded here in Victoria Canada, this is the forth single from my album “The Goldblacks”. Click music section for purchasing link!
Little music Monday idea I just went with. Lots of very special memories of this song. If you want to hear more and are near Victoria, I’m playing Wednesday, March 6th at Gorge-ous Coffee 8pm so come along, say hi and grab a new copy of my CD The Goldblacks!
In the early days the very idea of making a melody that went with guitar chords seemed like something only people could do if they were raised by Andrew Lloyd Webber and they were descendent of Jean Sibelius.
So my first attempts were only after I had seen other people playing their songs as a bassist…a long time after that. I had also already played lots of other songs on my mom’s old classical guitar. Eventually my first attempts started. And they never used much more than four chords.
This song I released today was actually one of those. I was at a friend’s place and couldn’t sleep even though she and her baby daughter were. The guitar was there and I just started doing this “E minor” and “A minor” riff back and forth.
I was making music with a mod player called Scream Tracker which played sampled sounds in order and I tried putting the song there, ending up on my first 3 song demo CD.
Now twenty years later and hundreds of songs later I decided to try it out. That’s really my favorite thing. Give a song a real try and see the reaction.
My new album “The Goldblacks” was made up of mostly media favorites.
But yeah, if you have wanted to write just have pen, paper, instrument and maybe something to eventually record your ideas (way easier today with what devices can now do). Social media is a fun way to share your ideas and from the start you can grow your ideas by learning from the masters and just experimenting. I still do. Each one is me trying things out. It’s exciting, which you get swept up in.
Anyways here is my lastest as of literally this morning, Tattered Sails based on how my friend and I had gone through so much in our recent years.
And if you want to write then find time you know you will be productive and go to it. As I said previously…just show up to the page. And again. You will be surprised!
I’m making a sort of online demo on my SoundCloud page so head over for some cuts from the new album!
First Single off The Goldblacks album to be released May 1st!
Click and enjoy!
Thank you for checking this out and supporting an independent artist!
