Howie Day Collide (Cover) by Jamison1483

No Comments

This is a cover done by the late Joe Jamison. Joe passed away last month and he was a guitar student of mine. He pulled this cover off after 6 months of lessons and was very proud of his accomplishments. So was I. Joe had an amazing back story. He was a victim of a robbery and was shot in the head. He survived it and had to relearn how to walk and talk. His ability to learn new things was amazing. He was a good guy and I’ll miss him dearly. RIP

The only thing I did on this cover is some backing vocals and keys.



This is a new song that is not quite right yet. I think the mix is off. Looking for opinions. Also, I have know idea who to say this song sounds like. It’s the first waltz we’ve written.

it doesn’t feel finished, but i’ve no idea what else it needs. Criticism and feedback always very welcome.

Bless the Good Ship iComp, Lord


I wrote this song many years ago as a tribute in thanks to all the wonderful folks I met on iCompositions. I put it out as a collaboration and Garni, Dylan, Billy A and the inestimable Trilobite2 joined in and brought it to life.


So raise a glass with me, if you will, if you had the pleasure to sail aboard the Good Ship iComp … Bless her, and Cheers!



Welcome aboard the Good Ship iComper

The gangplank is that way and the bar never closes

She’s seaworthy, trust me, grab a free life-preserver

When the booze is aboard we’ll be a’weighing the anchor.


Our mission, like our crew, could not be any simpler

With Captain PM at the helm we will wander

The seas and the oceans a’searching for plunder

There’s no song too poxy that someone won’t cover.


Bless the Good Ship iComp, Lord, and all who sail with her

For we know not what we do but we’re we’re doing it together

And we’re likely to sink in the fairest of weathers

For we don’t know our port from our starboard or rudder


You’re welcome to board whether seadog or lubber

(Though there’s a hearty Yo Ho if you’re a good female singer)

But there’s no time for scurvy here or seasickness either

On the Good Ship iComp you’re either drunk or hungover


The crew, Lord, is motley we come from all corners

Alaska, Peru, Singapore, and Down Under.

There’s Brits, Cowboys, Indians (those Euro’s are bonkers)

And there’s ghosts that rise up known as Davy Jones’ lurkers


Bless the Good Ship iComp, Lord, and all who sail with her

For we know not what we do but we’re we’re doing it together

And we’re likely to wreck in the calmest of harbours

For we can’t tell our poopdeck from our … sea monsters


Leave a bad comment and we’ll shiver your timbers

No quarter is given to unsolicited pluggers

The CO is a map to lost buried old treasures

And the Chart it’s the Head, there you’ll find the old buggers.


So come all ye faithful old fiddlers and ravers

There’s a home for you here right by the old rockers

So what did we do with the last drunken sailor?

We promoted him, Sir, made him Chief Moderator!


Bless the Good Ship iComp, Lord, and all who sail with her

For we know not what we do but we’re we’re doing it together

And there’s no chance in Hell we will make decent sailors

So let’s stick to what all do best: annoying the neighbours … 


Bless the Good Ship iComp, Lord, and all who sail(ed) with her … 

Politically Correct


Looking over Twitter, someone asked for songs that fit specific categories. This one fit one, asked about.

sunbeam w voice


Free form jazz with poetry….Trying to break the boundaries of music…Music and mix by Tom Devine. I did the lyrics and vocals.

Before the humans came


thought I’d use opportunity to thank all those who listen and comment and to appologise for not reciprecating as I have no idea how to

Staying Alive (Hallelujah)


Imagine if Jesus had been around in the disco 70s … 


Well you can tell by the way I use my walk

I’m the Son of God, no time to talk

Lepers need a’healing and bankers need forgiving

Thank God I’m on the job

I take from the rich and give to the meek

An eye for an eye, turn the other cheek

There’s plenty of tales about Jesus the man

Though not many folks know that I can dance


Come the Armeggedon I’ll be Moonwalking from heaven 

The Second Coming’s imminent my Daddy is omnipotent so I’ll get

To the head of the line 

Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah It’s party time in paradise

Ah, Ah, Ah, I’ll turn your water to wine 

(You want that red or white?)


You can tell by the way I move my feet

I’m a holy ghost the kind you’d like to meet

The gospel is a’groovin’ and the Holy Spirit’s moving 

I am the word on the street

So raise your arms in the air or get down and pray

With me you can move in mysterious ways

Join us and jive upon the water

With me, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John Travolta


Come the Armegeddon we’ll be discoing in heaven yeah

Let the Romans crucify me I’m too cool to let it bother me

Cos I have eternal life

Ah, ah, ah, ah It’s party time in paradise

Ah, ah ,ah, ah we’ll stay up all night 

(They call me Jesus H. Christ)



Brothers and sisters

Put your hands together

Love thy Neighbour!


You can tell by the way I move my shoes

I’m no dancing fool I’m the King of the Jews

Devil’s got the music yeah but I know how to use it

I am the way, the light, and the groove

Watch me slide and take control

The dance floor’s mine like your living soul

We can jive and gyrate

All the way up to Heaven’s Gate




 Been out of the loop for a while (pretty much since MJ went down). Good to see a few old faces here. This is pretty self-explanatory. Richard Marris and I wrote the lyrics and melody, I sang and arranged.
