    I thought these were all done and over with. Just coasters for our drinks, but it turns out I've gotten a lot of requests for a CD release of this new album, recorded in Iceland by Kurt Uenala and Jim Infantino. So, I've pressed some for our digital spinning fans. They are in a paper fold over package with no shrinkwrap because shrinkwrap is evil. Lyrics are on bigego.com - enjoy!

about

This was a song idea I wrote in the mid 1990s. Kurt helped me break it down and reassemble it to form a working song.

lyrics

(i had this little tape recorder. i used to go down to the coffee shop, record people, play it back later. was that wrong?)

you spun around, you turned me on,
you left me on, and then you left me here
spinning

like an old jazz record, like a waring blender
on a merry go round in the galaxy

you spun around, you turned me on,
you left me on, and then you left me here
spinning

(on a walk through the woods one day, i heard a bird that sounded just like charlie parker. i was amazed, but i didn’t have my recorder with me, so i just stood there and listened.)

like a cyclone storming, like a snail shell forming
on an orbiting ball round a yellow star

you spun around, you turned me on,
you left me on, and then you left me here
spinning spinning

(on the van ride home i was tired and sad. then you reached across and grabbed my hand and i felt warm and held.)
