"Sleep It Off", "Falling Apart Never Really Hurt So Bad", "Notice How Everything's Gone" by Scott McLean

Some of my songs that were to be released here, which were singing and I wrote/sing those songs that way in 2012&13 "Sleep It Off", "Falling Apart Never Really Hurt So Bad"and in 2011 and 2012 "Notice How Everything's Gone". Those song titles may change, but those are part of the lyrics of the songs and I may add more lyrics too.  The songs include a feel of Gothic, Grunge, etc. but I couldn't put those songs here in 2012 because the news kept being so sad at that time and we continue to get bad news and sad news reports. My songs are NOT about the sad tragedies taking place in our world, although "Notice How Everything's Gone" is about the government and companies trying to stop us from creating songs. I did make some recordings but have to re-record those songs. I remember those songs and keep singing them.

"Notice How Everything's Gone"
by Scott McLean

Notice how everything's gone
you can't even sing this song
notice, notice
we don't care
longer than we stare (note: with added dramatic emphasis)

I find myself, wandering through
a book of places
that you'll never go
and you'll never know

Notice how everything's gone
you can't even sing this song
notice, notice
notice how everything's gone
you can't even sing this song aaahhhh aaaaaahh (note: that's a scream at the end)

Note: I sing this song a lot and it's short and to the point. I came up with this in objection to CISPA and SOPA and this was going to be my protest song. It still is my protest song. Note: I may decide to slightly change the song titles but those are part of the lyrics.

"Keyboard Riff Inspired Snowdrift" by Scott McLean

Keyboard Riff Inspired Snowdrift
by Scott McLean

I fell down
n' almost went away
snow on the groun-
duh-beneath was ice
should say
Christmas prepare
shop if you don't drop
in rounds sing
this snowy Christmas thing
I got flat
recalled in keys riff(ed) up
of long ago
though not davnim dovno
you should have been
there, the riff was
recorded and still is
not Christmasy
no mellow melody
I am sure
sweets will prevail
alternative taste buds
very Christmasy
proclaim ascending slowly
the unnoticeable incline
over time
not Not
neither Neither
nor Nor
should I stop
or become abor
No No's
Yes Yes's
oh Maybe
I love you
Maybe the Most
Maybe you are
the most Christmasy
of all
I know togetherness
of each snowflake
uniting courage
inspiration of gradual
is the
as one with
the key to

Note: I wrote "Keyboard Riff Inspired Snowdrift" lyrics on Wednesday, November 20, 2013.

"Every Flavor Of The Wave" by Scott McLean

"Every Flavor Of The Wave"
by Scott McLean - singer, songwriter

I recorded this on Sunday night, February 2, 2014 and I don't know, was it around 11 p.m. I'm not singing to myself though it could seem that way and it's a rather funny video. Actually, I was trying to put my picture up so I wouldn't be seen while I was singing but wound up with both the picture and me singing.

Some songs I like include "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" by Lou Rawls, "Street Life" by Randy Crawford and The Crusaders, Chet Baker's recording of "My Funny Valentine", "Look What I Got" by Betty Carter, "Sweet Love" by Anita Baker, and of course The Doobie Brothers "Black Water" and many of other songs by them. I don't have any personal connection and I don't sound like them in my own songs, I'm just happy I like those songs and many more, and I like to do my own singing styles. Truthfully, I almost hurt the outside of my neck trying to sing high notes like one female R&B/Soul singer so if I do covers I'm going to have to be more careful.

Song "Emotion" because Emotion is good in life and songs

People were bullied on the YouTube website. I remember seeing many bullying comments there and it often had nothing to do with songs on YouTube but sometimes it was people being mean to fans of those artists/bands. Just because some people want to hate and they wanted to cause problems for other viewers/listeners to YouTube videos. The worst I recall seemed to be in 2011 and I was almost sick from it and sad a lot and the comments weren't directed at me, but I felt sad for other people who had been bullied there on that website. I use the words bullying, bullied and bully but only because those are words people understand. I saw come comments on YouTube that seemed like threats and some of those people should have been banned from YouTube if they weren't. I felt depressed and sad because of comments I read on YouTube.

On the YouTube website, the bullies wrote mean words and I think they try to hurt people because of emotion and the emotions of people. I was reading comments and the word 'emotion' and 'emotions' was used by the bullies and that's as stupid as it gets since we all have emotions

Emotion is good.

Having emotions and expressing emotions is good and great and emotions make us real and care about life. Sometimes we're sad, and yes I cried when some people died because of suicide and they gave up maybe because they couldn't take reading and/or hearing any more mean words, hate words, and other bad words.

Emotion is good and Emotion is great! Your emotions are fine and perfect because we are humans. Think about yourself and be happy who you are and keep going. Sometimes I can only keep going and that's good enough for me and that's why I say keep going.

My song lyrics "Emotion" is for everyone and for people to feel good about their emotions. I also hope more singers and songwriters continue to put emotion in songs.

Scott McLean Original Song "Leaves"

This is when it was released:

Thursday, December 22, 2011
Nonexistent Reality/Scott McLean "Leaves" - new song

Scott McLean song "Leaves" was a song release on Thursday, December 22, 2011

I'm celebrating today two years since my "Hit" song "Leaves" by Scott McLean (that's me) was released here. The date was Thursday, December 22, 2011.

I know my song "Leaves" is popular the same as some of my other songs, at least popular with well-known bands, because I've heard your songs that came out since the time of my song releases, and some of those songs sound like they are influenced by me and my songs. Am I a major influence in music these days? Yeah! I'd so so for certain. Also, I can come up with notes, lyrics, and reverse them in my head. That's what I hear in my head. I love my song "Leaves" and while we all have our influences, I'm my biggest influence, and who knows maybe I'm one of your influences too.
