One of the songs we recorded before the band broke up was a song called Only the Dead Know Brooklyn. Dominic introduced it to us and Jeff shared a story how he saw a dead guy in the subway station and we all shared a somber moment. (Later that night I kept waking up singing the song over and over again in my head and picturing a dead guy. Yipes.)
Now, I don't sing, but when Dom first introduced this song i could not help myself. I said "I can't think of anything on the piano. I just want to sing." It just felt right. And they let me, and it was so fun, and I was so nervous. Here it is. It may be posted temporarily so enjoy it while you can. I love this song, so much. The city is in my heart.
Happy Friday, and feel free to listen to this as many times as you need, to feel happy today.
(On top of the original tracks, Dom sings about various areas of Brooklyn that are near and dear to our hearts. He also ran the NY marathon last year. Also, Sean joined in with the group on the chorus & last verse, which was so fun.)
