Music

Many people find that without music, a play just isn’t as instrumental.  If writing a song is difficult, writing a song for a theatrical production is damned near impossible.  Especially the way Cory does it.  He records the entire song backwards, and then plays it in reverse to see how it sounds.  He doesn’t really, but wouldn’t it be cool if he did?

Here are a few samples.  All songs performed by The Peter Penhallow Orchestra and feature the voices of Gail Gongoll, Melissa Phillippe, Randy Phillippe, Larry Williams, Kim Williams, and Tom Holmes. Special thanks to the Great Sensei, Peter Penhallow.

Ol’ Devil Eyes (Click to Listen) – Our opening number, to give you a bit of the low-down on Eddy.

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

Let’s Hear You Scream (Click to Listen) – Eddy picks up Melissa at a pizza tavern, and decides to take her home and kill her.  He’s the man of her dreams, she’s the soup du-jour of his.

Cold Cuts (Click to Listen) – They say love means never having to say you’re a pair of psychopaths hellbent on murdering anyone you come in contact with.  Eddy and Lucretia would agree.

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

Easy To Be Cruel (Click to Listen) – Eddy’s justification.  Why be good, when the world begs you to be bad?

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

Train Song (Click to Listen) – Life’s a journey, not a destination.  Naaah, it’s a destination.  Texas.
