Variations on a kids TV theme

16/06/2018

I love children’s TV. I watched a lot of cartoons and shows when I was young and now I’ve started watching cartoons with my nephew, I’ve found myself revisiting some classics. A lot of the nostalgia for me lies in the theme tunes. The songs that we heard every Saturday morning that got stuck in…

I Am Falling

18/04/2018

This was the second song I wrote on the ukulele, back when I was about 17.

Easter Song

An easter song I wrote with my good friend Laura.

Taking it all the wrong way

18/03/2018

I rarely write songs that are autobiographical or true, but this one is. Kind of. A little bit. I often get very paranoid and over analyse the slightest of compliments, so that’s what my latest song is about. Enjoy!

Girl of my dreams

18/02/2018

If my imagination creates the perfect girl for me, then how can anyone in real life compete? That’s what this song is about.

A Love Song (good enough for you)

04/02/2018

This is, at the time of writing, the first and only love song I’ve ever written. I’d tried many times, but never been able to write a decent love song that was worthy of singing to a girl, but I always ended up making them silly or adding loads of jokes. So in the end…

Drop The Calories

10/12/2017

This year’s festive tune is a parody of Stop the Cavalry (by Jona Lewie) all about eating too much over Christmas. I had so much fun filming this with Mike, Laura and Shannon. A lot of it was improvised on the day. And yes, it was very cold lying in the snow, but I really…

A Doctor Who themed parody of 7 Years by Lukas Graham.

Hard To Get

04/06/2016

I wrote this during my lunch break at work because I’d just bought a new ukulele and wanted to try it out. The song is based on one of my favourite Morecambe and Wise jokes – “She played hard to get y’know… married another fella.”

Where’s Commander Strax (parody)

29/05/2016

This was originally going to be about everyone’s favourite Sontaran warrior/nurse/butler, Strax from Doctor Who, but I realised it sounded a lot like Where’s Captain Kirk by Spizzenergi (although I focused more on the R.E.M. version) so I decided to make it a parody instead.
