Alone with my guitar at 3 in the morning…
- My Funny Valentine
Playing keys and singing all vocals on top of some MIDI drums
- Betcha By Golly Wow
A Rolling Stones classic from the production, “Let’s Pop”, at Theater des Westens, Berlin
Two songs with the original members of the Berlin band, “8 of Clubs“
- Hot Fudge
- That’s The Way I Like It
- Hold On, I’m Comin’
Original song from the Pi’ipi’i Brothers and produced in my living room!
With inspiration from The Nylons, this was my first acapella arrangement. I later used this recording as a guide to teach members of my quartet (Michael singing all parts).
- Up On The Roof
Two old-english songs at the request of my friend, guitarist and composer, Justin Lépany. Justin on guitar and Michael on vocals.
- Black Is The Color Of My True Love’s Hair
- The Three Ravens
Erwin Bruhn came up with a lovely harmony to this Billy Joel song – Mike also on vox & guitar and dedicated to König Lüdwig II, the great dreamer.
- Everybody Has A Dream
This song was from the Friends of Italian Opera’s (English Theater of Berlin) production of “Road to Nirvana”. I was asked to do the sound design for this project. For this song we were only given lyrics and the guide that it should be a typical Madonna-type song. Vocals from our leading actress, Eugenia Bürklin, and produced in my home.
- Who I Am
The beginings of a new arrangement from one of my favorite Dionne Warwick tunes…
- Walk On By
