  2. hey harvey,

    really happy i got to hear this stuff.

    good vibes for sure.

  3. LOL @ “Squid Vicious.”

    Good tunes.

  4. Nice guitar work on “I Want to Spend My Life in School”. Keep on makin’ music.

  5. Hey Harvey,
    Thanks for this (although it’s kept me up way past my bedtime).
    I listened to the whole list one after the other. They’ve all got their merits, but here’s betting “Blues for MF” goes to the top of the charts.
    To get into the details, I like Newton rhyming with futon, but you sort of copped out on hermeneutic; didn’t you (place appropriate smiley face between these parentheses)

  6. Professor,

    You still sound like Bob Zimmerman………..but with diction……….

  7. Love blues for MF! great lyrics!

  8. really cool……

  9. Harvey, these recordings are amazing. O Niccolo is still my fav!

  10. VERY COOL TUNES, HARVEY!!

    Loved Intellectual Crooks a whole lot.

    :-))

  11. If Dylan hadnt been born….keep on Funkin Harv and a happy xmass to you and Georgiana

  12. Intellectual Crooks is right on the money Harv. Great little tune for which I already have found a place in my silly little Nipponland film. But as it is silly I’ll only be able to pay you royalties in ‘francs anciens’ (not adjusted for inflation). So perhaps you’d just prefer a free cold beer. Seriously, only changes I’d make is the length. Is there an under 3 minute version in the works? In that case I’d expand the ‘middle eight’ , with even rougher punctuation to keep the listener from possibly succumbing to monotony by the fourth minute or so. It is after all a rather simple melody. If not maybe vary the tonal color of the background brass a bit (switch to some tuba, a few bass flicks,even the shake of a tambourine?) I don’t know. Just watch out that Randy Newman doesn’t steal this one from you for his next Oscar winner.

  13. I want to hear more tunes!
