Getting Older - words, music & vocal by me - tony baksa

 
 
As requested especially by Cathy & Kevin. I actually figured it out. I'm a technical whiz!! ( after 4 hours of TRIAL & ERROR - with some precious help from PJ Tighe )

    1. I don't think so. I wrote it for a play I was collaborating on with a friend. It has been charted and copywrited(?) And hidden away for years. Thanks for listening.

  2. You have been gifted with amazing talent. Thank you for sharing this wonderful song. The ending is a bit sad though.

    1. Thank you. The ending was sad for the purposes of a character in a play in which I composed this song for. Near the end of the play, he is left feeling hopeless about his life and regretful about his choices. If you look at an earlier post, I posted the lyrics - updated with a glimmer of hope in the last line.

  3. Just lovely Unc T! It was so refreshing to hear your voice. It reminded me of Levon days around the piano and made me smile. You've written a beautiful song. You really should do something with it! Others need to be blessed by it. There is nothing wrong with reflecting on your life in all possible emotions. Helps one to grow. Love to you & Glenn.

    4. Tony, thanks to my son I got to hear your song. It reminded me of old times when you would play for us in your apartment. Memories
      Anyway back to your song, I loved it and you sounded amazing. It still made me a little sad but what can I say except You Still Got It.

    1. That's really a nice thing to say, Liz. Thanks much. Your dear mother is technically challenged. Well, its understandable when you get to be that age :)

      She provided her email address to an account I'm sure she lost the password to

    3. Ha-ha - passwords are a pain. She did finally hear it though - divine intervention I think.

    4. I did hear it Tony. I told you last week. I loved it & it brought back memories of your other performances. However, I still think it's a touch sad.

    5. P.S.-technically challenged @ THAT age?

  7. Well your voice isn't getting older. Good to hear your voice again. I haven't heard you sing since you sang at the 555 in the late 70s. Beautiful song
