My humble homage to songs & artists that have inspired me along the way. 'Songs Borrowed Vol#1' to be followed by a second installment in due course!

Songs Borrowed Vol#1

1/ Childstar (Ron Sexsmith)

Originally featured on Ron Sexsmith's 1997 release 'Other Songs', I was actually drawn to this song by a bootleg live version. These are lyrics I only wish I could have written.

2/ Wonder Why In LA (Grandaddy)

A little ditty made available on the Deluxe Edition of the 'The Sophtware Slump'. Original album released in 2000 but re-issued with this track and others in 2011. I think Jason Lyttle sings it with more irony than I can muster, it remains a very wry take on life on the West Coast.

3/ Only Love Can Break Your Heart (Neil Young)

Covered by Saint Etienne and Stephen Stills amongst others, this is a classic from Neil Young's second solo album 'After The Gold Rush' released in 1970.

4/ I Want To Be Alone (Vashti Bunyan)

It isn't quite the same feeling of female empowerment and independence coming from my lungs, it is however a truly great song that I had to try. Available on the double album 'Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind'.

5/ Shangri-LA (The Kinks)

The Shangri-LA, the final haven of an Englishman, from the acclaimed 1969 Kinks concept album 'Arthur'. It was between this and 'Australia' and there were far less guitar solo's to learn on this one.

All songs performed by Steven P Robinson.
Backing Vocals on 'Wonder Why In LA', 'Only Love Can Break Your Heart' and 'Shangri-LA' by A♥Y.
