BandPopAcoustic

My music will get you in straight away and take you on a journey shared or in your own space satisfied at the end you'll be bopping, tapping, thumping dreaming, feeling, and hopefully still breathing. I hope you like powerful acoustic, with staple melodies coming at you.

Biography

my music is funkyish with simple lyrical ideas that people will relate to. It has singalong catchyness, is softly revealing and can be fun. Influences are the beach boys , bee gees, other soft rock acts, with an ear to modern commercial styles. I play the local occasional gig of originals and love the process of construction of my songs. 30 years ago I was in a 3 piece covers band, singing 50s, 60s, and 70s but looking to go forward with my own stuff and hoping to find an audience

BONDI IN THE SUN
( WORDS & MUSIC BY MELVYN E. KIDD ) c FEB 09

I SEE A PERFECT WAVE
COMING IN ON A PERFECT DAY
THE SUN SALUTES THE SURFING ACTION
DOWN ALONG THE PROMENADE
NATIONS COME, THEY WALK AND RUN
ACKNOWLEDGING THIS BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

BONDI … OOOO …, BONDI, BONDI …
( CHORUS )
BONDI IN THE SUN, IS THE PLACE I LOVE, OH BONDI
BONDI IN THE SUN, A PLACE FOR EVERYONE, OH BONDI …

CAMERA’S CLICK IN ANXIOUS HANDS
PATROLS HEAD OUT ACROSS THE SAND
KNOWN FOR THEIR DEDICATION
YOU FIND A SPOT, READ A BOOK
SUNGLASSES ON TO GET THE LOOK
THE REST IS UP TO YOUR IMAGINATION

BONDI … OOOO …, BONDI, BONDI …
( CHORUS )
BONDI IN THE SUN, IS THE PLACE I LOVE, OH BONDI
BONDI IN THE SUN, A PLACE FOR EVERYONE, OH BONDI …

SOME DECIDE TO STAY DRY
FOR OTHERS, IT’S THE SEA, THE FLAGS, THE SKY
THE BEACH IT SPREADS A TIMELESS INVITATION
THERE’S A BALANCE HERE, IT’S NATURES CHARM
KNOWN FROM COAST, TO THE FARM
BONDI IS THE PRIDE OF THE NATION

BONDI … OOOO …. BONDI, BONDI …
( CHORUS )
BONDI IN THE SUN, IS THE PLACE I LOVE, OH BONDI
BONDI IN THE SUN, A PLACE FOR EVERYONE, OH BONDI
BONDI IN THE SUN, BODIES OUT FOR FUN, OH BONDI
BONDI IN THE SUN, CAN’T WAIT ‘TIL SUMMER COMES, OH BONDI …

( OUTRO )
OH OH, OH OH, OH OH OH OH OH OH ( BONDI )
OH OH, OH OH, OH OH OH OH OH OH, OH ( BONDI )…( REPEATS )

BONDI, BONDI IN THE SUN,
BONDI, OH BONDI IN THE SUN ( REPEATS )

BONDI … OOOO …. BONDI, BONDI
