Living vicariously

Although I wasn’t able to go to the Club Med fan getaway, I got my fix, thanks to some thoughtful RS fans who have shared photos and videos on Facebook. Someone even posted a video of RS singing his new song. Whoo-hoo, thank you, thank you!

(The song was great – looking forward to hearing the rest this summer when the new CD is ready!)

For all there basking in the Florida sunlight and all the RS music, it looks like a wonderful time, have fun!

‘Going Through Some Old Lyrics’: A RS Facebook post from last year

I just came across this – it’s my new favorite RS video ever (on a separate level than the musical ones).

I’ve been going through my notebooks from the last 30 years finding all my old songs, so this video really resonated with me. Just like RS, I now type all of my songs (sometimes I scribble in the notebook in my purse, but usually only the full song makes it onto the computer) but all my old ones are in notebooks, with plenty of cross-outs, scribbles and re-writes. (I recently went through many of them and selected some to send into cyberspace on Beyond the Notebook.)

This video is so fun to watch, thanks for sharing, RS!

VIDEO: My Rick Springfield Crush Revival

A few months ago, I wrote a song to┬ásummarize “My Rick Springfield Crush Revival” and this past weekend, I decided to try to make a video out of it. So I recorded it (on a tape recorder at home) and experimented with the Movie Maker program that came with my computer.

Disclaimer: I have no illusions about being a great singer or guitarist but I did have fun making it! The video – and this blog – is dedicated to my teenage self who would have enjoyed doing these types of things if the technology had existed at the time.

I hope you enjoy it!
