BandClassicalNew Age

I'm an instrumental composer intrigued by melody and counterpoint in small ensembles. It's satisfying to blend simple musical lines from distinct voices to produce an original experience. I hope you like my music.

Biography

Pete studied French horn and music theory with Herb Winslow (Principal horn, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra) and Kirsten Thelander (Director, Iowa school of music) at the University of New Mexico in the 1980s.

Pete weaves simple melodies together to form a distinct web of sound. The complementary voices evoke an intimate and familiar mood for the listener.

Lyrics

Christmas in Plano

Written By: Pete Rail

Christmas in Plano is just above average
Plano's a place that is almost like home

Christmas in Plano clean streets and fake snow
Join us in Plano be just like us

Hop in the Lexus and dash to the strip mall
Plenty of parking but tip the valet
A wonderful sameness is what you'll remember
Come and see bourgeoisie Plano today

Let's grab a Starbucks and head to a resturant
They're all the same so it's easy to choose
We're lost in the sameness but never to worry
We don't need choices they only confuse.

Christmas in Plano always the same oh
Join us in Plano be one of us

How 'bout the spa for a Botox infusion?
White teeth and Lipo are featured all day
A joyous conformity beyond description
waits for you here here in Plano today

Tract homes and iPhones and privacy fences
Pool boys and man toys and kids overweight
We welcome free thinkers who think just as we do
Join us in Plano the shopping is great

Christmas in Plano straight teeth and fake snow
Join us in Plano be one of us

Christmas in Plano is just above average
Plano's a place that is almost like home

Christmas in Plano clean streets and fake snow
Join us in Plano be just like us
