This is one I wrote not so long ago, let me explain. I like to drive. So when I leave my home in LBMCOC, in no particular hurry (like going to the gym), I take the Long Way. The 'Long Way' is out through Torbay, Flatrock, Pouch (Pooch) Cove and across the Pouch Cove Line. That's some of my only writing time when I'm at home. Song lines will come in my mind and I'll work on them, trying different approaches to their structure...but usually the way it pops in my head is the most promising!
The girl in this song is a combination of girls I know, or more accurately I knew, some of whom worked the bars and the hotels and kept the nightlife running in St. John's. I don't know where most of them are anymore, but I like to think that wherever they are, it's an adventure! There don't have to be answers to everything.
The recording was done in November 2015 and the cd came out in December. It was recorded over a six week or so period at Dave Fitzpatrick's studio on Hodgewater Line. He was easy and fun to work with...and he's always taking bookings! His musical and production talents bring the song to life!
