Here is a song I wrote back in 2009, originally it was all midi. It is all real-tracks now.
I got the idea for it while watching the Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremony. The vocal is the one I recorded back in 2009.

Even The Winner Has Scars

Hello Robert
Doesnt RT make a huge difference?!
Great song, even though I don't understand a thing about NFL and all that. Strange game! lol!
On the other side, if you Believe, then you must fight for what is right and "even the Winners" will have scars to bear witness.
Extremely well done.
cheers
ian

Great hook. There's a lot of people that we think have won perhaps physically, spiritually or both but they do all have scars. Thanks for the listen.

Hi Robert.

Just picked this up from our Soundcloud stream.

What a great concept for a song - very thought provoking and the message seems to stay with you long after the song has finished. Excellent work.

ROG.

Very enjoyable Robert, you are song writing machine.

Just a side note re: my old favorite of yours, "He". I am thinking when you did that song we had not yet had as many realtracks, if my assumption is correct have you ever thought of redoing it with realtracks?

Later,
