Episode #19 Preview 1

Episode #19 Preview 2

Today we’re going interactive! … Why?

Says Peter Link:

Songs from the Trunk presents some older, but promising material that begs to be reworked, brought up to date, and developed further. Or, for that matter, perhaps just left in the trunk. So I’m asking you, our devoted listeners, to weigh in and vote on possible next steps for each song.

So what you’ll be hearing (and I hope enjoying) today will be unpublished works from as far back as 40 years ago — some songs fully produced that somehow got stuck on the shelf, and others with just me an’ ma’ ol’ guitar throwin’ it down on a two-track.

Take the Survey here (remember, it’s a fun questionnaire)! (It opens in a new tab, so you can listen while you fill it out!)

    Remnants
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    And now I bring to you the remnants of a lifetime
    The remnants of a lifetime
    The fragments
    The leftovers
    The crumbs from the table
    The leavings and remains
    Of a time gone by

    Songs of promise
    Never finished
    Molding away in old discolored notebooks
    Once upon a time ...
    Once upon a time

    Yeah once upon a time
    They clamored for refinement
    Some polish and revisions
    My much-forgotten verses
    And half-baked ideas
    They cried, “Don’t leave me now!
    Left behind
    Never to find my way
    Lost in the pages
    Good for nothing
    Fading away
    And left alone to die”

    So have a little listen to the remnants of my mind
    Have a little listen to the remnants of a lifetime

    Interlude

    Yes these were songs and scraps of songs
    That never found a home
    Words that never made enough sense
    Melodies left unattended
    Until one day
    I dreamt of resurrection
    I could not leave my friends behind
    And have them fade away
    Fade away
    Fade away
    Fade away

    So I had a little listen to the remnants of my mind
    I had a little listen to the remnants of a lifetime

    And so they rose on up from the ashes of a lifetime
    These scraps and notes on napkins
    Those scribbles on margins
    Never remembered
    Those musings of the mind
    And the tunes left behind

    So have a little listen to the remnants of my mind
    Have a little listen to the remnants of a lifetime
    Please enjoy my remnants
    Please applaud their renaissance
    Come celebrate their reincarnation
    It’s not often that we all get a second chance
    So grab on to the moment
    Cuz It’s never too late to be born again

    Please enjoy my remnants
    Please applaud their renaissance
    Come celebrate their reincarnation
    It’s not often that we all get a second chance
    So grab on to the moment
    Cuz It’s never too late to be born again

    III (Descant)
    Have a little listen to the remnants of my mind
    Have a little listen to my mind
    Have a little listen to the remnants
    Cuz It’s never too late to be born again

    IV (Descant)
    Have a little listen to the remnants of my mind
    Have a little listen to my mind
    Have a little listen to the moments
    Cuz It’s never too late to be born again

    IV (Jenny Adds)
    Listen up people
    To the Remnants
    Have a little listen
    Whoa!
    It’s never too late
    It’s never too late
    It’s never too late

    V (Descant)
    Have a little listen to the remnants of my mind
    Have a little listen to my mind
    Have a little listen to the moments
    Cuz It’s never too late to be born again
