Biography

Life long friends and collaborators on many artistic endeavors which include screenplays, video shorts and music, the songwriting /performance duo of Chris Behning and John Rice is well on their way to establishing a unique and haunting new sound as evidenced by the accompanying compositions. Inspired by classic artists like the Beatles, Stones, Van Morrison, Sting, Joabim, and Marley, the boys began performing in recent years at local Northeast music festivals. Unable to contain their creativity and play these standards straight up they soon began sampling some original work during these sets and were pleasantly surprised to find that the pieces were readily accepted and preferred to their classic covers. A BiPed performance is now roughly 75% original music.

The BiPed composing team of Behning/Rice is also extremely prolific. The handful of compositions currently recorded is backed up by over 50 other complete songs and concepts! Currently employed, mature professionals, the guys often fantasize over the limitless possibilities if given the opportunity to exploit their composing and recording potential on a full time basis.

Where would Classic Rock have gone if the asteroid hadn't struck in the early 70s? We like to think we have the answer. We also like to think there is a substantial "boomer"market out there that is ready to embrace the continued evolution of this music genre. Blessed with the wisdom of life experience and a youthful voice, we're ready to write the next chapter.

Lyrics

Jealous

Written By: Christian Behning and John Rice

Jealous. You can say I'm Jealous. There can never be another one but you for me. Passion. This goes beyond some simple passion. This goes deep inside the deepest part of me. "Chorus" Not some notion. Show me a heart that's not been broken and I'll show you one that's not been wounded by the pangs of jealousy. Illusion. I labor not under some kind of false illusion. This is as real as real can ever get for me. Devotion. This goes beyond any child like devotion. I'd swim across an ocean just to have you nex to me. "Chorus" Envy. This goes beyond som foolish kind of envy. This is wrapped up in the world of you and me. Hesitation. Our lives have no room for hesitation. My dreams have a space that's just for you and me. "Chorus"

Love's Prisoner

Written By: Christian Behning and John Rice

Always talkin at me now you're walkin at me. Only so much I can do. No place to run and hide there's you and none beside. Beyond forever I'll be true. "Chorus" Was a time when I ran free. This thing's got a hold on me. Love does take prisoners. I know I'm one. Can't somebody please please set me free? Chains won't come undone. (Verse 2) Souls passing in the night. They wander left and right. My course is set and it is true. Let others make their play I can't but turn away my heart it only beats for you. (Chorus) (Verse 3) When you touch my hand it's then I understand. None could take the place of you. The world can push can shove. This bond was forged above. Doesn't matter what we do. (Final Chorus) Was a time when I ran free. My heart got the best of me. Love does take prisoners. I know I'm one. Can't somebody please please set me free? Chains won't come undone. (Chant) Chains Chains Chains I can't break free. Blame Blame Blame it on destiny Chains Chains Chains I can't break free. Blame Blame Blame it on destiny.

What You Livin Like

What you Livin like? Hey What you living like? I'm livin like I miss you. Just the other night I held my pillow tight. I thought I kissed you. (Verse 2 ) What you livin like? Hey what you livin like? Hope you're like you love me. You've got so many friends those good times never end. Well I see trouble bursting bubble. "Chorus" Just between you and me those other guys will never see what lives inside you. No not like I do. No not like I do. (Verse 3 ) What you livin like? Hey what you livin like? I'm still livin dreamin of you. Though others pass my way I don't give them no play. My heart won't take it oh won't fake it. "Chorus" (Verse 4) What you livin like? Hey what you livin like? I'm livin like I still love you. The others tell you lies. They have on a disguise. I'd never diss you oh just kiss you. "Chorus" ( Conclusion) What you livin like? Hey what you livin like? I'm livin like I miss you.
