If you think I'm too old I have just four words...Sting. Tyler. Jagger. Beethoven. I do every type of music except rap and polkas. If you don't like ANYTHING I've written YET, tell me what you want and I'll write it. But gee you're picky.

Biography

I was signed to RCA records in 1964 at the age of 7. They didn't really know what to do with me then, and now? neither do I. I have played everywhere from The Meadowlands with Aerosmith (keyboards)to Carnegie Hall with Donovan (guitar and keys) to my living room last night (pizza and keyboards).

Anonymously

ANONYMOUSLY Radice

You look stunning in black
I can see there's gonna be no turning back
She left me all alone
So now it's me heading for your dangerous
Tone of voice like honey when you slide away
And I hear you say come back to me and stay
You say come back to me and stay.....

It's just one two three is all it takes
For us to make our best mistakes
I wish I knew what it was in me
That gives you my love anonymously it's
One two three that's all it takes
For us to make our best mistakes
I wish I knew what it was in me
That gives you my love anonymously

Hush little baby don't you cry
Daddy gonna come up with an alibi
We know you're not alone
And the only one that doesn't is the one that's
On the phone with your voice like honey
When you slide away and I hear you over my shoulder
Saying stay please slay I hear you saying stay
....

Catch Twenty Too

Written By: Radice

Catch Twenty Too

I'm tired of livin' out this life all alone
At least I think I do
so come on back home
We've got our share of troubles everyone does
And we were crazy back there everyone was

I know that right here
is where I belong
I'm giving you the chance to admit I was wrong

This game of silence you've elected to use
Is golden till it's broken and the first one will lose

I KNOW YOU LIE THAT MUCH IS TRUE
DAMNED IF I DON'T DAMNED IF I DO
I CAN'T BE STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU
YOU THROW ME OFF WHEN I THINK I'M THROUGH

I've seen more than my share
Of fairweather friends
But I still get surprised
With each time it ends
It just amazes me
to see the smiles fade
Surrounded in the sun
alone in the shade

I know that right here
is where I belong
I'm giving you the chance to admit I was wrong

I held the universe
It threw me a curve
And I got the opposite
Of what I deserve.

It's A Beautiful Day For A Breakdown

Written By: Radice

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR A BREAKDOWN Mark Radice

I got a semi automatic I'm gonna take someone against their will
I'm gonna spray this place then show my face
On tomorrow morning's show with Phil
I'm being overly dramatic
Cuz I forgot again to take my pill
And if I hear one peep you little creep
You're gonna be the first I kill

Now lie on the floor face down
And let me tell you what my story's all about
And I am sorry but you really have no choice

The sun is a brilliant grey and I am having yet another brilliant day
So all I really wanna hear is my own voice

There's a man on the street out there in his boxer shorts
Directing traffic and everyone seems to be following his lead
So nicely

I guess I got you in a panic I guess this wasn't how you wanted to go
But when you wake up in the morning hey what happens
You will never know

It's a beautiful day It's a beautiful day It's a beautiful day
For a breakdown.....

(directing traffic)

I'll tell you who or where but I can't tell you what
This is my masterpiece you'll feel it in your gut
Now who's responsible for making me a nut?
Just keep an open mind cuz I can keep it shut.

Now lie on the floor face down.

Set List

When I'm in a cover band? I usually have no set list. If someone wants to hear The Clash? I just go "Sure". Here's "Margaritaville....by The Clash".
Other than that I do originals. Alot of times people come up and go "That was a great song, who does it?" And then I go "I do". Then they walk away because they have no idea what the hell I'm talking about.
