Remembering Les Paul... with Lyrics!
We're all saying YES
To hearing Les strum/At Iridium
Since more is LES.
Some others we've seen/Upon the jazz scene
Might pluck out a tune/No How High the Moon
No nothing like Les
Nobody else melts out the stress
They're all just greens, he's watercress
It had to be Les/So just say YES
And say more is LES.
Birthday Ode to Les Paul
re> L ongevity in musical innovation
E lectric solid-body sound sensation
S t. Louis and the Wolverton Radio Band
T op 40 overdubbing, in demand.
E nvisioning a world of multi-tracking,
R hubarb Red soon had a solid backing.
P aul (Les) designer of his own guitar;
O n top of the world but keeping the door ajar
L es Paul found love with darling Mary Ford;
S uperb duets, how COULD they ever get bored?!
F antastic blend, the duo paid their dues;
U nique "How High the Moon" and "Bye Bye Blues."
S electric Synchronization was the core:
S el-Sync, the brink of genius evermore.
