I love making new improvisational music
as well as writing lyrically interesting finished
songs. Covers? I don't try to copy exactly.
Much more likely to create a new way to play it.

The History of Time/PHONOReason Mix
The History of Time/PHONOReason MixWITH A TITLE THIS OVER-REACHING, it had better be about something substantial. As it happens, Gallagher and Dave's wedding (Nov 3rd, 2012) was all of that and more. This song is a toast to their life together (on the farm and beyond). A nod to all the simple majesties of love and existence et. al. Existentialism and Exuberance, Excelsior! Acoustic instruments/pianos, synthesizer/strings; Robert Hannan Vocals: Robert Hannan, Michelle (from someplace in Denver) Bass: Kobi Cummings Recorded in Concord MA and Denver CO Fall-Winter 2012-13 Produced, Mixed and mastered by Seamus Hannan at CCM Studio in Denver CO Arrangement and Beat Tracks by Seamus Hannan THE HISTORY OF TIME ©2013RobertHannan dave and gallagher get married • november 3rd, 2012 the morning sun is late arriving now that its november but we rise easily always a dream to talk about we set the table out with silver saved for company scrubbing our knuckles clean when morning chores are over and finding harmony someone whistling softly something so familiar count your blessings everywhere oh i promise i will give you more than just my history i promise i will but only just enough to keep a little mystery the afternoon was uneventful tho’ i may misremember it slow and sullenly summer’s decent was bittersweet and then the perfect trick-or-treat october there is a box somewhere of schoolbook days and myriad scraps of somebody not much to see but for me its so familiar keep your memories with care the evening sun retires early now that its december days go quietly i was a child once so i’ve heard it gets a little blurred you must forgive me there are so many things that fade or slip between the fingers with no apology the nightwind whispering softly something so familiar and its sounding like a prayer oh i promise i will
WINTERSMOKEwintersmoke ©2013BobHannan only ragged remains from a storm in the spring pray for me father for I have sinned like ribbons of winter smoke noplace to cling to everything blowing away in the wind sometimes a change in the weather is better than not sing to me children and cradle me giving up just little of the comfort we’ve got cradle me mother and sing to me before you carry us away let the record say that we were vagabond had a house upon the hill a hundred dollar bill like all the rest gave a little bit to fate so let the record state that we were vagabond and by the ending of the day we found a place to stay and we were blessed well if it isn’t goodbye then what is it? we could always come back for a visit
FROST ON THE ROOF
FROST ON THE ROOFThis lovely melodic tribute to my favorite season of the year will be sure to please moms and dads and kids alike Just a moment in time. Still dark on a morning in mid-October when our hero discovers to his surprise that, the clear cold night has left the first frost of the year. Moving and bittersweet. An implied relationship suggesting a love between two familiars and gentle promise for the future and whatever it may bring. "Let's just hope the winter's kind". Peaceout. FROST ON THE ROOF Bob Hannan 2012 I light the morning fire and when the kettle's steaming I'm careful when I pour I caught the morning star while you were upstairs dreaming and I stepped outside the door I've seen this place before there's frost on the roof a light against the shade your shadow moves behind I hear saint mary's early bell my star begins to fade it doesn't change my mind let's just hope the winter's kind but time will only tell you know me far too well there's frost on the roof

DOGS LIFE.finalthis is such a great song, it should make me my first million! . . . if it was for sale. it's not because I just give it away!! please enjoy responsibly. DOGS LIFE ©2012roberthannan they wake at daybreak they still have stars in their eyes and then later on toward evening they will watch a new moon rise it should come as some surprise you won't be sorry love if it takes a thousands tries I swear she weaves his heartstrings he leaves them there on the loom but that rosebud by the bedside will always be in bloom that is I just assume here comes another world when you walk into the room I swear you've got that new dress on the one that I love when you wear there is something up those greensleeves that compliments your hair especially when I'm there it will not be very long til you you know how much I care I swear

BEFORE I GO
BEFORE I GOHonest to god . . . I don't know what brings out the "breeezy jazz" thing in me. It's embarrassing. But there ya' go. . . . yet all-in-all, it is a fairly cheerful tune. Another summer Sunday in June.
THE STAND IN
THE STAND INI found that hitting the key sharply and holding would cause the Horn Section sample to do a beautiful fading blare-thing. So anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
FIREFLYcool and jazzy. like an early spring evening on the screened porch (you still need a sweater)
ELSIEShe stole a favorite leather sandal once and I held onto the other for 6 months, just in case I ever found the missing one. In the end I just threw it in the trash. That day the missing one was deposited in the middle of the driveway by you-know-who. HA! It wasn't too late!! I retrieved the trashed one é voilá I had my sandals again!
