"MacLellan is a solid composer, which perfectly complements adroit soloing ability and his improvised forays. His playing shows elements in common with the styles of Neal Schon, Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson, to name a few." Dan McAvinchey, (Guitar Nine Records)

Written By: Leon MacLellan & Paul MacAusland

V.I.P

(chorus)
Shaking the room baby
Shaking the V.I.P

(verse 1)
Last thing was a scream pretty baby
I’m a man with a sewing kit
With a wiggle and a come hither baby
I said I’ll follow you to the ends of the earth
You turn love round baby
Man I love those eyes
Looks like a full moon dawning
Wolfman says come back inside
(chorus)
(verse 2)
Standing on a full court rollin
I’m the king of the shake ‘n’ bake mountain
I’m a one up achiever
Make me feel like it’s my first time
(chorus

Brightest Star

Written By: Leon MacLellan & Paul MacAusland

BRIGHTEST STAR

(verse 1)
What’s wrong baby girl
Why all these tears
All your problems can’t be solved
With a sharp knife and a shaky hand
(chorus)
Oh, oh when you cried out
Cold cold on a small bathroom floor
I wanna see you laugh at them
Cause you’re the brightest star
Baby girl
(verse 2)
The people you call your friends
Cowards all of them
They talk behind your back
But its just idle chat
You wanna make their lip fat
(chorus)
(verse 3)
Nobody knows you better than us
So trust me when I say
Gossips just a bad friend
You wish would go away
Guess what - no way
(chorus)

Jeanie's Rant

Written By: Leon MacLellan & Paul MacAusland

JEANIE’S RANT

(verse 1)
I do the dumbest things in your eyes
Some are lies
Let me finish my thoughts
At least I’ll try to explain
Jump into the middle of what is right
Another fight
My heart belongs to you
But you step down on it
You wouldn’t want it
(chorus)
No calm when you rant
Your visions a slant
One side your side till the end
What happened, happened
For a reason
And now your preachings kill me
(bridge)
Let the past stretch out
Keep your chin held high
Let your arms reach out
Never wonder why
(verse 2)
We do the dumbest things
Blind our eyes, some are lies
Your broken world wont bend
in mine it would, just like it should
(bridge)
(chorus)
