    @Steve Hoffman : What's the artifact at the very end of the track at 2:20? Listening to this now for the first time at work and can't quite make it out. Amp? Drum sticks?

    Love the cut Cecilia Ann by the Pixies, had no idea it was your's Steve, very cool!
    Ya know, the Bambi Molesters from the Croatia do a nice cover on the tune as well on their album Dumb Loud Hollow Twang. Surftones rock!

    Whoops! (Didn't read the whole thread. Already mentioned)

  8. Great story and song! Thanks for sharing! But ain't Gabriel Fauré's Sicilienne the inspiration behind the melody line instead of Éric Satie? When you mentionned that, I figured the word play would be from a sicilienne, I looked up Satie + sicilienne on Youtube and came upon Fauré's piece instead, and it does sound like it to me...

    Gabriel Fauré - Sicilienne, for cello & piano, Op. 78

    Satie, Fauré, all those German composers get mixed up in my mind..;)

    I'll fix my OP..

    Hey, just got a giant check for CECILIA ANN.

    What's up? A new Pixies Box Set or something? Reissue? Anyone know? Something must be up..

    I don't think anything has changed since last September, has it been used in any tv/movies lately
    Are you bragging again Steve? ;)

    My royalty check is up %300. Is that bragging? Nah, I'm just curious as to the reason why.

    Streaming perhaps? If the song has been featured in a playlist it may have gotten a bunch of hits.

    Congratulations! :)

    Streaming? Hah, not a chance. No money there.

    I have a friend who's song ended up in a Wal-Mart playlist for about half of U.S. and he received a huge royalty check. Maybe something similar then.

    That's great! One of my favourites from Bossanova, and I always wondered where it had came from. Cool to find out it was you. Did you ghostwrite any other songs, surf or not? It would be great to hear about it

    Seeing some of the outfit, i'm thinking more Genesis... :D

    Steve, why not think for a B-side and release a 500-copies 45 7" for the forum? Think it will be sold out only on preorders...

    Indeed. Actually, one of the bands that it's linked in this thread is from Madrid!
