Sitting Here By Myself#SCxiamOTHER
Sitting Here By Myself#SCxiamOTHERWe wrote this in the '90s but ironically it works for what's going on today. For all the single people who blew it with the right one.
High School Days - Elizabeth Reynolds
High School Days - Elizabeth ReynoldsJaysun Foxx and I wrote this song in 1990 with completely different lyrics, But when Elizabeth was approaching high school, we re-imagined the lyrics for her apprehension of what was ahead. To hear the old-timers lyrics go to https://soundcloud.com/rob-traegler/high-school-days Two different songs...
High School Days
High School DaysJaysun Foxx and I wrote and recorded this track at Bailey's about 1990-2. Written 15 years out of high school, it was an unusual look back.
Alan 37This song was written by my cousin, Steve, and myself when we were 13. Years later, we took it to the studio with the help of Jay Lippincott on drums and backing vocals.
Heart AfflictionWrote this fast=paced tune with Jay Lippincott and went right into the studio. Cool chord changes and great production by John Bailey.
Angelina - INDIVUDUAL SHADOWS
Angelina - INDIVUDUAL SHADOWSHarry Cox wrote this song about a fictional girl named Angelina, way before Jolie.
It Ain't Right - INDIVIDUAL SHADOWS
It Ain't Right - INDIVIDUAL SHADOWSSong all about how being born into the right family just makes life a lot easier.
Got a Job
Got a JobMy co-writer and I wrote this song in the late 90s, totally predicting Uber. The lyrics are about a guy who works in his car-all day. Hope you like it.
"See The Sun" Individual Shadows
"See The Sun" Individual ShadowsWritten in 1983 and recorded many times. Here's the 2013 version with Jay Lippincott, lead inspired by Larry Crisner.
Tribute to Wakeman
Tribute to WakemanThis quick song was inspired by a sound on my keyboard that sounded like Rick Wakeman. I wrote something quick to solo over.
Mia & Sebatian's Theme

"New Guitar for Christmas"
"New Guitar for Christmas"Original Christmas song I wrote featuring the vocal talents of Elizabeth Reynolds and Jay Lippincott on drums. Hope you like it!
Tryin' Hard Not To Die - Phantom Brakeman (Live in'77)
Tryin' Hard Not To Die - Phantom Brakeman (Live in'77)Here's an original song I wrote as a heartbroken 16 year old. It features Al Petrino on vocals, Chris Reetz's lead solo and George Rock's searing sax solo at the end. There was also me, John Bailey on bass and Chuck Bailey on drums.
"Weirdo" The Madmen-Live on Sunset Strip 4/28/82
"Weirdo" The Madmen-Live on Sunset Strip 4/28/82Found this from 4/28/82 recorded live at the Monte Carlo room. It was my last gig with the Madmen before I headed back to NJ. Since then, Eddie, our guitarist has passed away; wish I knew what happened to the rest of the guys.
"Time" (featuring Kelly Costigan)
"Time" (featuring Kelly Costigan)Kelly Costigan, Lynne's daughter, is featured on this track as a precocious Madonna-like 12 year-old. I think this song is very catchy and Kelly does a great job.
Insatiable Desire - Individual Shadows
Insatiable Desire - Individual ShadowsWritten in 1993 and recorded at John Bailey's studio, this rocker features great guitar work by Larry Crisner and a three guitar solo battle at the end. Most of all, it's a catchy rock song written by Rob Traegler and Jay Lippincott.
Central ParkThis song was written circa 1995 and was performed live at my graduation (from Trenton State) party at the Hibernians. Jay and I recently re-recorded it, me playing all the instruments while he supplied the drum track from Florida. Scott Chrisner, Larry Crisner, Jim Mangione, Jay Lippincott and I all brought this song to life. I like it.
'The Englishman And The Barrister' Title Cut
'The Englishman And The Barrister' Title CutLyrics: The Englishman and the Barrister The Englishman is a barrister Who hasn't got time to play Another Christmas morning and daddy's going away. Nigel slid down the banister And he hurt himself today, Gone away, Another day, Paper's late, It's how he relates... Daddy wants to be a magistrate, But I don't know what that is, Try to visit him in his chambers, But the bird won't let me in, Mommies always getting sauced, So she's of no use to him, Where am I? Again must I cry? Is this goodbye? Solo When the Lords passed the bill, Mummy turned to the pills, Daddy's new job is in the Parliament, But I don't know where that is. They tell me I'll see next fortnight, My life has just become a quiz, Gone away, Where am I? Is this Goodbye?.........
Machiismo Lane"Machismo Lane" is an unusual original composed by Rob Traegler and John Furda in the wee hours of the nigh in closed door sessions. The lyrics are unclear to this day.
78 in L.A.
78 in L.A.My best friend and favorite drummer Jay and I wrote this song out in Los Angeles. My son Rob says it makes him miss home and L.A. Just the vibe we were going for, hence the Eagles harmonies in the background. Hope you like it.
Hold the Line - Tangled
Hold the Line - TangledJohn rocks the vocals on this Toto classic. Last song of the evening-could've been the first.
Blue Collar Man- Tangled
Blue Collar Man- TangledHere we are at the end of the night trying some new stuff like Styx's "Blue Collar Man".
Sittin' Here By Myself (feat. Ernie White)
Sittin' Here By Myself (feat. Ernie White)Recorded this song a few years back at Ernie White's studio. Ernie was kind enough to play an awesome acoustic guitar solo at the end of the song that just completes it for me. It also features my best bandmate, Jay Lippincott, on drums. Without sounding pretentious, I still think this has hit song potential. Enjoy.
