Hello Everyone - My song "Forever with us-Our Rock N Roll Angels" now...

Hello Everyone - My song "Forever with us-Our Rock N Roll Angels" now has ADDITIONAL verses honoring Janis Joplin, Bill Haley plus this last weekend I added the Big Bopper, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and George Harrison. so here are my thoughts.... A. I keep my original tune - not too long and leave out verses and keep the extras for live venues or..... B. I make it into 2 seperate songs with the same beat and just call them both part 1 and the other part 2

or (as a last resort) I can ditch some of these verses entirely and just choose the BEST ones. so here is a chance for you guys & gals out there to choose your favorite verses and let me know WHICH verses I should keep in case I do one song only....please reply and thank you from the bottom of my heart and remember - I still need a band to play this! And I still need someone (a producer?) to record them.....preferably in the twin cities of Minnesota and now...here with ALL the NEWEST VERSES (at the end of the song) is "Forever with us - Our Rock N Roll Angels"

(Please check out the new verses and remember to HEAR this tune -minus a few verses - click on my picture of me as a little boy - next post below this one- this will play the song)

Note: song can be as long or as short as singer/band wants - verses can also be added or taken out - Ken looking for producer to record and a band to play it call 612-462-8535 or email [email protected] if interested

Shes far out in Heaven - Where legends all go

She passed away early - So sad was the news

Yes somewhere in Heaven - emmotion is spent

such feeling and passion - we were heaven sent

And now shes an Angel - But we'll see her once more

When we make it to Heaven - Once more her we'll adore

I had over 100 FB comments yesterday and TODAY and there still coming in about my forever in heaven song - everyone loved it except for one critic who said its waaaaay to long and I agree with him but and please believe me when I say that NOT ALL VERSES have to be sung. it just depends where you sing it (what state and part of the country) you can make the song as short as you want or as LONG as you want. thats the beauty of if. mix and match even. and later if someone else passes away....well...as you can see its easy for me to make a new verse so this song will stay fresh and relavent (its fresh now because of Glen Fry and David Bowie) LikeCommentShare Comments Ken Marth Write a comment...
