A Dead Bird And A Pine Cone

Created with GIMP

The cliff diving world championship stops in Polignano every year.

To tell the truth, it is quite easy to see guys diving from the cliff every day. I don’t know how they do it. They jump from points on the cliff where only seagulls and caper plants grow.

I never thought about diving but surprisingly this year I did it.

I did it knowing that below I would find a team of friends ready to rescue me.

The original version of “A Dead Bird And A Pine Cone” is featured on a Doormat, TX compilation titled Mein Compf (I). Charlie McAlister sings a cappella while a dog can be heard barking in the background.

Caleb Fraid convinced me that I should cover a song by Charlie myself. “”A Dead Bird And A Pine Cone” is perfect for you” – he said.

“Easy!” – I thought – “I don’t have to play any instruments”.

But once I got on the cliff, my legs started shaking.How could I have thought I could sing?

I sent my version of “A Dead Bird And A Pine Cone” to a couple of friends. 

What you can hear here, is an expanded version of my rants, a nineteen minutes and thirty seconds in which I sing a song and de portables play.

de portables!
