Influences: All those songs where bass goes boom boody-boom and guitar plays boing! But my influences are more varied than that. I also like when piano goes dinky-dong and drums sound like whoosh. But then sometimes I just love it when they sing sha-lal-laa. So I have a really wide range of influences.

Here's a song from 50/90 Challenge 2019, "Oh, Caroline":

Thanks for your comment on 'Handsome', Klaus!
Thank you for the comments today as well! I hope you have a great spring/summer and perhaps I'll see you at 50/90, and if not, at FAWM next year!
Desperate last-minute "thank you" for comment on Covid Requiem before all goes into limbo!. I liked it too!
Thanks for your comment on, "Just One", Klaus. You nailed the idea perfectly. I was imagining it as the same character further along in their recovery from the break up, but your description might be more apt. 😀
Thank you so much for all the kind words about my songs. I appreciate it. Have a great and safe year until next February. I hope to 'see' you again then. 😀
I noticed you didn't get your rock hands this year! Oh well.
Thx for the kind comments on It's All Right and Old School Blues.
As you can see i do love the bluesy / jazz style.
Yes matey i am a huge fan of Brian Wilson and was brought up on the beatles, and like you, i definitely find myself trying to emulate some of those delicious structures and movements but like you said, we can only but try. 😉
Thank you for your kind comments on a couple of my songs. I really appreciate it. Just listened to a few of yours which I thoroughly enjoyed. Hope to 'see' you again next FAWM. Have a great and safe year. 😀
Thanks for your work on my lyrics. I think Winter Wonderland was a real highlight for the year.
Hi Klaus! Thank you for your comments for 'Bears' Nutrition Guide'. It's fun that you feel it like some idea for Disney cartoon. I like it!
P.S. Nice to meet you! ...Looking forward to listening your songs!
Hi Klaus, I will be checking all of your songs out. I always like all of them. I think I'm going to try one more song before FAWM is over and so I'll be back.
Be well and happy. Thank you for checking out my songs.
No worries, Klaus! You can always save it for another time if you'd like. 😀
You can wait till March to sing O Canada! 😁
thx mate i could see i could get it! always like to ask though! be on next wednesday
I made it to 90!!! 😉
"wild roses" hey....nice! That's fine. Btw, I'm not attached to roses...I was just thinking something romantic.
Yes, that’d be great on “Our Hearts...”! Regarding “roses”, well initially it was “flowers”....lol. Do you have another idea for a word there?
Thanks so much Klaus, for listening to Bears' Nutrition Guide, and your very kind comments. I'm swooning from your praise, rather like a Disney princess. Or maybe Minnie Mouse.
Thank you Klaus for your comments about Das Tofutier.
4 years is a lot information... so you still use german? It makes me happy when you say you re humming the melody.
Yes, it is true in Canada; you go to the beach in early summer and are blinded by all the white skin. 😀
Thanks Klaus! I love it-
That'll be super! 😀
Hi Klaus! Thanks for your insightful comment on SnowJoy about v2 ‘how longe the freeze’. It wasn’t intentional, but you are absolutely right, it does foreshadow. I’m afraid I let my unconscious take the lead most of the time, and it does those things for me. Thanks for pointing it out!
Thanks for your comment on "Upstairs"--I appreciate it!
Thanks for your comments on "Not Ready to Be Steady". You're right on the money about the need for a melody. I've been concentrating on the grooves and leaving that for another day. Thanks for listening.
Hey Klaus, many thanks for your comment on Hot Chicken I appreciate it!
Thanks for you comments on my song 'Defenestration'. I was in Helsinki in the summer of 1974. My sister-in-law's mother worked at the Grand Hotel and she called the drunk bums at the market square "Russian tourists". But all the Russians I've ever met have been friendly.
Klaus, don't worry about your language skills; your written English is better than some native English speakers I've encountered. 😀
Thanks for the forum post about making my dropbox links playable in the UI
Thanks Klaus. I hadn't decided if this one was going to be more funny or serious, but I kept going back to the later. Was wondering if you might like my #20 song A Little Tango?
Pistonia en oo kattonut vaikka sitä joskus kehuttiin muusikoiden.netissä. Samuel Adlerin kirjasta luin aika paljon -ja sitä olikin mukava lukea- ja sitten Don Sebeskyn -siitäkin tykkäsin- ja John Cacavasin vihkosia sovittamisesta ja orkesteroinnista. Sit on muutamia Ravelin orkesteripartituureja yms. Ehkä mä vielä jonain päivänä rupean kuuntelemaan useampiakin isoja orkesteriteoksia ja samalla seuraamaan niiden partituureja. Olen kovin hidas käsittelemään nuottikirjoitusta.
Hi Klaus, that's fine. No rush...thanks for letting me know!
Thank you for your lovely comment on my song Klaus, I will catch up on your latest songs in the morning.
Go ahead with the songs. I look forward to hearing the finished projects.
Thank you Klaus for taking the time to listen to "as the house burns down." For me it was a wonderful project. The lyrics "sang" to me when I first read them!
Thx for Listening and comments on Tiffany keep up the awesome collabs
Happy to have you do something with Junk Drawer. Looking forward to it.
"Yes, it might work. You can be Andy and I'll be Colin. 😀 But seriously, I may have some bits that we could collaborate on. I'll get back to you next week via email."
You just made my day! 😀
And so many thanks for your wonderful feedback too - what excellent taste you have 😉
Winter Wonderland is yours
Thank you, sir from Suomi, for your kind and thoughtful note. Good to see you and your unchanged humour. I'll be back listening later today. I'm off cycling through a snowy winter's day.
Klaus, would love to an XTC inspired collab with you sometime. Let me know if you think we'd be a good fit 😀
Hello, new Fawm friend! Thank you so much for listening to Mesmerized! 😊
Thank you!! <3
Okay on RSVP! Looking forward to it!!
Thanks for the comment on my 'Famous Painting Challenge' song!
Thanks - nice to see you again! I hope to record maybe tonight when there is some quiet time - the song requires quiet...
Hey, thanks for the comment on my lyrics for Carmelita, when I get time, I'll work on a melody and backing
Yes! Ragtime. My thought exactly. (This song kind of... emerged without much intervention from me.)
Hey Klaus..I finally arrived at the party that looks to be in full swing !
Thanks for the welcome
Hey there! Thanks for your comments on "Whatever you Do.". You're welcome to add music to it. 😀
Hey Klaus, many thanks for your comment on Charlie Went Fishing I appreciate it! Kurtis did an awesome job on it!
You did an awesome job on "He Drank Bobby's Beer at 50/90!
Thank you! I'm in love with this one! And we should start every FAWM this way!
Thanks for listening Klaus, always appreciate yah.
Thanks for the comment Klaus.
Hi Klaus, looking forward to all of your songs
Thanks a lot for the comment and the recommendation! I'm looking forward to your first tune!
Many thanks for the listen and the really kind words, Klaus! I really appreciate it. 😀
Hello my friend. Good to know we'll have the pleasure of your formidable cool again this year. 😉 Have a great FAWM.
Well, I guess it depends on one's idea of romance, but definitely not mine haha! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on "Rest in Pieces" 😀
Pop will work well. Can't wait to hear it!
Of course! Thanks☺
Hey Klaus. Those sunglasses will come in handy on 14 Feb
Hi, Klaus. Happy FAWMing!
Hey Klaus! I'm here this year, you bet! We missed you at 50/90 - hope it was a great time off for you. Looking forward to more of your wonderful antics this year.
Hello, Klaus. We're at Fawm. Might as well make it a good one, eh?
Thank you! 😱😬🤪
Thanks Klaus - yeah, I realised a few years ago that I just want to sound like the sort of bands I loved in the 70s (and the 80s!) It's a quest I will happily follow for the rest of my life. Happy FAWMing once again!
Hi Klaus, thanks for the note...you crack me up...I'm gonna try and rally my entire percussion army and see what we can muster. I'll be listening so be terrific! 😃
Hey Klaus yep we're here again
Thank you, Klaus! Have a great one! 😀
Hey Klaus! I am so glad to see you here! Thanks for the lovely welcome! I plan to be here, yet still unsure of the extent... Have a great FAWM!
Bonza FAWM to you, too, Klaus! 😊
hi klaus. looking forward to your new music, hoe the ast year hasnt dulled your sparkling wit.
Hey @klaus, thanks for your kind words. I always start february completely blank and it usually takes me a few days to get the creative and inspirational juices flowing. I'm also kinda busy with a few other musical projects this month (plus regular life woes) so I'll have to wait and see what happens.
I am very much looking forward to hearing your songs, they always bring a smile on my face. And we can definitely use that in these hard times we live in.
Back at you Klaus. Have a wonderful FAWM.
Hey Klaus! So glad to see you!
Hola! Here’s to a happy FAWM and more memories! So many good memories of song collaborations over the years - all wonderful with Klaus creativity!
Moi! Glad to see you back!
Hi Klaus, happy fawm. Tuned my piano twice within a space of a month but still missing the sound it once was.
Hello friend. It's good to hear from you. I'm gonna try.
Hiya Klaus! Love your new profile pic! Happy FAWM 2021!
We had a small dusting earlier this month. Real snow is rare here. More icy rain than snow. You have your share. Yes?
Yeah. G’day Klaus!
Klaus is back! 👏 Yes!
Thanks for visiting! Looking forward to hearing your stuff!
Good to see you here Klaus!
Hello Klaus, my good friend! It's nice to see you in the New Year. Wishing you a very good FAWM 2021.
Hi Klaus! Nice to see you! Stay warm in the snow and cook up some fun music!!
Synthy must be a word - you just used it. Good to see you here this year - look forward to hearing your new tunes.
I am very happy to see you're here for 2021. I am ready for a bonza FAWM!
