They Might Be Giants – The Summer Breeze (Dial-A-Song Week 24)

The 24th instalment of TMBG’s 52-week Dial-A-Song project in 2015.

in a summer house out on Cape Cod a number of years ago
my cousin Charles heard over the radio on WEEI
the story of an automobile that had driven from its garage
and killed a number of couples kissing down by the oceanside

Charles thought about the ocean’s waves down the road just a mile
and as he turned off the radio he saw with his own eyes
the very same door handle they spoke of hooked to that radio dial
and the summer breeze blew in the window
that hadn’t been open before

so if you hear a radio you had best beware
be sure there’s not a car around
because the legend still remains
there’s a car without a handle
and that car is still at large
there’s a car without a handle
and that car is still at large

Butch Walker feat. The Dove and the Wolf – The Rose (Bette Midler Cover)

So, an unexpected fact about my late Father, Butch Walker, Sr… His favorite song was “The Rose”, a song made popular by the great Bette Midler. My Dad loved it so much, he wrote the words into his eulogy and the words were recited at his funeral service. This song always holds a special place in my heart, because it did in his… My friends The Dove and the Wolf have been singing it with me on tour and we couldn’t wait to record it. We pulled into Appleton, WI on Memorial Day to grill burgers and sing tunes with my fellow brother in song Corey Chisel at his beautiful sanctuary called The Refuge. This is the 2nd of 2 takes we did. Hope you like it.
