Lonely Days was part of 4 song EP entitled "Killing Asylum," which was independently distributed throughout Europe. Slow emotional & downbeat. Strong, lonely, crying & heartbroken.

"Ten Cities" - All parts written and recorded by B. A. Brooks. I wrote and recorded this song right after 9/11 in dedication to all of those who lost loved ones that day. On this song I decided to use a tuba instead of an electric bass guitar. In the chorus sections, I also added an accordion. Instrumental, Dramatic, Sad Music
This is an idea I had and decided to record a rough demo so it would not be lost. The idea is that the start of the song is Birth. The middle of the song is growing up, and the ending is death. ie: Your Life Theme. I really like Herb Albert and The Tijuana Brass, so I add some horns in that vein. Instrumental, Themes, World Music (pending)
The IRS, under our U. S. Constitution, cannot legally require information on 1040 returns from individuals. That is why the IRS continually refers to the income tax as "voluntary". There is no statute that makes a person liable or responsible to pay the income tax either... Do some research... Male Vocals, Comedy, Comic Song
