I've opened this thread with the purpose of having a specific space where those forum members who like to write and record their own original songs can share them with the rest of the forum, not having to open a specific thread for every song we want to share.
With great humility, I present to you a new song by Unomusette, Helmut and BSJ,
“Summer Night Safari”
This song is another outstanding production by Mr Producer, our own, Helmut. The leading leader in the “original music” movement for Horace Wimps ELO Fan Forum. It’s a great musical culture he’s developing for us. His previous, well received, productions have included multi-talented forum members. Including animals from Horace’s farm!
And who was dragged into this movement with a lot of numbing arm twisting and ignored pleas for mercy? Me! BSJ, gifted chronicle writer about ninja groupies who protect a wearer of excessive eyeliner and mascara.
This is Unomusette at her best with her feisty wordplay. It’s a remarkably catchy tune with the genius of Helmut’s musicianship backing her. Unomusette challenged Mr Producer in a big way. But without a proper Diva to produce, how can Mr Producer improve himself?
We kicked around a few thoughts on what you might expect from this song. “When you’re next dropping off to sleep, you might bring this song to mind for a more electrifying dreamtime” Or “If this song sends you to sleep, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, we met our objective”.
And this song introduces Eduardo, Helmut’s one year old nephew, an up and coming rock star prodigy who hit his mark every time. Pretty cool.
I had enormous fun working on this with these two great friends. Who are, by the way, unbelievably talented.
So, heat up the old stereo tubes, find your theater glasses for watching the bonus video interpreting the song, and enjoy.

I will too will listen to this tomorrow but I look forward to hearing it, I'm sure it'll be fabulous It is a shame I don't possess the capability of writing songs, only writing stories but I am very fascinated by the song writing process hence why I love to interpret songs I love! I'm happy though to sing cover songs of ELO when no one is in the house or in the shower haha
Everyone trying to make a fast buck ‘round here. You’ll have to take it up with the goat Horacewimp . Dubious contract, but a contract. We hated taking advantage of the poor thing. He didn’t seem quite right.
Thank you for your kind words, H W. We, all, are very proud of it!
Did Helmut83 sneak in that jungle jingle? Well, played.
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
