Cry Baby Cry (Beatles cover)

I asked my friends on Facebook for song suggestions, and this was one of them.

I always liked the White Album. Although John Lennon later dismissed "Cry Baby Cry" as "rubbish", it has its weird charm. Reminiscent of both nursery…

The Deck Chairs of The Titanic (original song)

I wrote this a few weeks ago ( -"Another sea-themed song or video, seriously?" I sigh as I write this -) and so far it's one of my favourite songs I wrote this year.

I've since been informed that, according…

New Morning (Nick Cave cover)

Nick Cave isn't exactly known for his cheery tunes - but among all the weird dark stuff, he's got some tremendously hopeful songs. New Morning is one of them.

White Noize (Bonaparte cover)

I can't think of many songs that describe as accurately what living in the UK feels like to me, as this song by the Swiss electropunk band Bonaparte.

A Sorta Fairytale (Tori Amos cover)

This one is a request. I was planning on a Tori Amos cover, but didn't know which one to pick, so I was quite pleased to have someone else make the decision for me.

Discovering Tori Amos was momentous to…

River on Fire (original)

I wrote this song a year ago, while reading about the poet Robert Lowell. 

He is inspirational, not solely due to his extraordinary work, but  also his strength of character. Despite suffering from inevitably recurring pathological moods and numerous breakdowns…

You've Got Time (Regina Spektor cover)

Regina Spektor is definitely one of my favourite artists. I saw her live in 2016, and I walked out thinking I don't ever have to see another concert - no one ever is going to top that. Several years on…

Queen of the Wolves (Clara Luzia cover)

Clara Luzia is an Austrian artist and a very new discovery of mine. Her version of this song is way less introspective than this, though - in fact it’s fast paced alternative rock. But I was so taken with the…
