For the Songs of Summer contest.

Several years ago I was out for a run along the beach on a hot summer day. A bicyclist coming up behind me at a hot pace hit a pebble or rock, lost control, and wiped me out. I broke my arm and elbow and spent the summer trying to get my Vicodin prescription refilled.

I changed the characters and details to protect the guilty and to exaggerate the tragedy for your summer listening experience. Isnt that how they do it in Hollywood?

Those of you who have been on the Vike will relate.
Theres a reason the docs dial you down off of it before turning into Elvis.

So wont you join me on my Vicodin Summer?
And as we do in Chicago, dont forget to vote for Boss Hook early and vote often!

I played and sang everything in my Bermuda shorts, tank top and flip flops. I tried to replicate what it felt like riding on the Vicodin breezes and summer waves, but was not under the influence of any pharmaceutical product, at least thats
my story and Im sticking to it! TCB Baby!!!

OUCH! well you know what they say 'write what you know' lousy way to get a theme for a song!

Reminds me of 'Presence' by Led Zep, Robert Plant in a wheelchair recording in Berlin smiley

Great track you have triumphed over adversity here, cool stuff Bossmeister smiley

I had my Vycodin summer several years ago, when I broke my 3rd cervical vertebra, and had to spend the whole summer, and a good share of fall, with an orthopedic support. It was real fun, so I think I can relate.
Summer accidents aside, this is a sweet cool song which would deserve radio playin'. Who knows, maybe some egghead from Sony will listen to it, smell the biz, and you'll sign a multimillion bucks worth contract, and in the end I'll hear it again playin' on my usual ionian sea beach. I hope so, at least: you would deserve that.
Man, you got my vote. smiley

Gorgeous song about a bummer summer.

Aren't you glad your doc didn't Rx you some norco, darvocet, or Tylenol #3? Would not sing quite as well.

What a pleasant song about an unpleasant accident. Sort of amazing what you turn into art here. Sure sounds good here in Sydney where it's cold and winter. smiley

This is so funny! I was on vicodin after breaking my knee in Switzerland...it was a sweet ride. I loved everyone for about 2 days until I weened myself and onto less dangerous medicine.

John,
I really love your chord changes, the lyrics are cool and different. I would never think of writing a song like this gem. Far out. Nice piano too.

Hey Boss... it sounds like you have a real good handle on several instruments... as well as your sense of humor... a great twisted look at what is more fun to look back at, than go through...

Is that Lake Michigan?
... I grew up on Lake Mich.

ROFL over the announcement at the end - connection alert. I could see Leti covering this providing you supplied me with a track where the chords are on some level dissonant, and you and Fluvio allow me to borrow some of the concepts in Carnival Maria. I believe Leti would express a very powerful version of what would be a Vicodon Winter.
