The First Move

I debated whether or not to approach her. I really felt out of my league with this gal too, but I finally mustered up the courage to talk to her. I asked her if she wanted to dance, but she turned me down, saying she was waiting for someone else. It was then that I got the idea for this song. While country music was not playing that night, it was coming into vogue back in those days and so I eventually did a country arrangement for the title while capturing that night in the lyrics. / CLICK HERE to learn more!

Back in my early twenties, I held a job at Six Flags Magic Mountain while I was attending Loyola University of Westchester California, to get my Technical Communication Arts and Sciences degree, as well as a second degree in music. I worked there from March of 1976 to March of 1979. One day, while revisiting the park, late at night, just before the park was getting ready to close, I went over to the Tempo Dance Pavilion, as it was called at the time, and saw this truly lovely young gal. She was starry eyed and had a yellow chiffon dress on, with lace. She was a vision of loveliness to me, but I felt outclassed just to look upon her. This was back on March 23, 1983. I would have been 28 years old then.

While country music was not playing that night, it was coming into vogue back in those days and so I eventually did a country arrangement for the title while capturing that night in the lyrics.

I did the piano, bass, synthesizer and vocal work back then. A friend of my then room mate Kevin L. Norwood whose name was Dan Kimbel, did the country guitar work. Dan was an active club singer in those days and an accomplished song writer. Another friend named Bob Jensen did the percussion work. It was fun to do and finally get down on tape. I was poor back in those days and always seem to be struggling with money as I’ve aged because of my health always being attacked. As a result, I developed a double compression recording system of my own that allowed me to get studio quality recordings using 4 track equipment, even when ping ponging tracks back then. My double compression method was unheard of technology back then. Still the arrangement came out just great like it had been recorded in a 24 track studio.

So, if you are having trouble making that first move, maybe you should buy this song and play it for that special someone you have your eyes on. If I can play cupid and help break the ice for love to get started, I’m more than happy to ablidge with my music talents in helping you reach your love goals.
