REVIEW from [ Pure Pop Radio ]
Brady Harris | Ukulele Days
We’ve been happily playing Brady Harris’s music on Pure Pop Radio for many years, enjoying his creativity and melodic gifts, album after album. So it was with great pleasure that we played this new album, released just two weeks ago. Centered around the glorious sounds of the ukulele, this entrancing mix of originals and covers makes for a beautiful listening experience. From his gorgeous cover of Brian and Carl Wilson’s “Good Timin’,” which features Brady’s vocal harmony stacks to magical effect, to the perfect-for-a-summer’s-day sojourn, banjo accented “Welcome Me Back,” this is one of the best albums we’ve heard in a long while. We’re playing the entire run of songs, including the ones just mentioned. And: “‘Til the End of Days,” “Wear Your Love Like Heaven,” “Save Yer Love for Me,” “I’ll Miss These Days,” “Right Down the Line,” “End of May,” “Points of View,” “Lauren, Lauren,” “This Boy,” “Bring Flower Power Back,” and the wonderful instrumental, “Camarillo Beach,” which wouldn’t have been out of place on the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds album. Nice job, Brady. Very, very nice.

Track Name: Til the End of Days
TIL THE END OF DAYS
(Brady Harris/Robbie Leff)

When the springtime comes again
I’ll be with you my friend
All the places we will see
I know you’ll wait for me

Til the end of days
Like yesterday

Through the good times and through the thin
I’ll be with you my friend

Til the end of days
Just like yesterday

When the springtime fades again
I’ll wait for you my friend
Track Name: Wear Your Love Like Heaven
WEAR YOUR LOVE LIKE HEAVEN
(Donovan Leitch)

Colour in sky, prussian blue
Scarlet fleece changes hue
Crimson ball sinks from view
Wear your love like heaven (Wear your love like)
Wear your love like heaven (Wear your love like)
Wear your love like heaven (Wear your love)

Lord, kiss me once more
Fill me with song
Allah, kiss me once more
That I may, that I may
Wear my love like heaven (Wear my love like)
Wear my love like heaven (Wear my love)
La-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la

Colour sky, havana lake
Colour sky, rose carmethene
Alizarin crimson
Wear your love like heaven (Wear your love like)
Wear your love like heaven (Wear your love like)
Wear your love like heaven (Wear your love)

Lord, kiss me once more
Fill me with song
Allah, kiss me once more
That I may, that I may
Wear my love like heaven (Wear my love like)
Wear my love like heaven (Wear my love)
La-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la

Cannot believe what I see
All I have wished for will be
All our race proud and free
Wear your love like heaven (Wear your love like)
Wear your love like heaven (Wear your love like)
Wear your love like heaven (Wear your love)

Lord, kiss me once more
Fill me with song
Allah, kiss me once more
That I may, that I may
Wear my love like heaven (Wear my love like)
Wear my love like heaven (Wear my love)
Track Name: Good Timin'
GOOD TIMIN'

Good good timin'

Track Name: Save Yer Love For Me
SAVE YER LOVE FOR ME
(Brady Harris)

Save yer love for me
Save yer love for me

When you're young and all your life's a dream
And everything's exactly as it seems
And all the places we went
Drunk afternoons spent walking alone
Y'know that sometimes I
Still wish that somehow time could fly me home

Save yer love for me
Back in '83
The world was you and me

Back to Houston my mind always goes
The thick-aired breezes of the Montrose
And all the places we went
Drunk afternoons spent walking alone
You know that sometimes I
Still wish that somehow time could fly me home

Save yer love for
Back in '83
The world was you and me

La la la
La la la

You know that sometimes I
Still have to dry and eye when I see home

Save yer love for me
Back in '83
The world was you and me

Save yer love for me
Save yer love for me
Save yer love for me
Track Name: I'll Miss These Days
I'LL MISS THESE DAYS
(Brady Harris)

I'll miss these days
Spent with you time can't erase
You'll never know all the ways
but I'll miss these days

Share a dream
You never know what it brings
This is the price it seems for us

Live and learn
Broken hearts always yearn
For a past that can't return to them

When the feeling leave you dry
Seems love's on loan from days gone by
Or not yet arrived from the days so far away
That always come but don't stay
As long as you and I remain
That's when I'll wanna say

I'll miss these days
Spent with you time can't erase
You'll never know all the ways
But I'll miss these days

Share a dream
What a lovers kiss may bring
The other half of all the things you need

But when you wake
To the sound your own doubts make
You can almost hear hearts break in two

When the feelings pass you by
Seems love's on loan from days gone by
Or not yet arrived from the days so far away
That always come but don't stay
As long as you and I remain
That's when I'll wanna say

I'll miss these days
Track Name: Right Down the Line
RIGHT DOWN THE LINE
(Gerry Rafferty)

You know I need your love, you got that hold over me
Long as I got your love, you know that I'll never leave
When I wanted you to share my life, I had no doubt in my mind
And it's been you, woman, right down the line

I know how much I lean on you, only you can see
Changes that I've been through have left their mark on me
You've been as constant as a northern star, the brightest light that shines
It's been you, woman, right down the line

I just wanna say this is my way
Of telling you everything I could never say before
Yeah, this is my way
Of telling you that every day I'm loving you so much more

'Cause you believed in me through my darkest night
Put something better inside of me, you brought me into the light
Threw away all those crazy dreams, I put them all behind
And it was you, woman, right down the line

I just wanna say this is my way
Of telling you everything I could never say before
Yeah, this is my way
Of telling you that every day I'm loving you so much more

If I should doubt myself, if I'm losing ground
I won't turn to someone else, they'd only let me down
When I wanted you to share my life, I had no doubt in my mind
And it's been you, woman, right down the line
Track Name: Points of View
POINTS OF VIEW

(Difford/Tilbrook)

I'm impossible she's exciting
Bound together with joined up writing
In the Church
I heard a bell ring
In a bar
I heard a girl sing
She sings solo I see double
Moments vanish her love so subtle
I went home
It's not surprising
Words were few
And realising

I was deep in my points of view
So interested to talk to you talk to you

She' s romantic and I'm selected
Glances swapped and thoughts collected
By her song
It's not her singing
Words were few
The bell was ringing
On the table my cards are shuffled
Words take time to get so muddled
I'm off home
I'm shy but eager
Tomorrow comes
I hope to see her

On the stage with her velvet voice
Though some would say that it's just a noise
I bit off more than I could chew
So interested in my points of view points of view

Trial and Jury swear on the Bible
I'm too drunk and unreliable
I'm too drunk
For conversation
Though I wait for invitation
She's exciting I'm uninvited
Fifteen rounds this love I've fighted
I'll walk home
And curse the heavens
Lost on points
Our love was flattened

Maybe she had other things to do
And didn't want any points of view
Points of view
Points of view
Track Name: Lauren, Lauren
LAUREN, LAUREN

Singing a song about a blue-eyed girl
Her name is Lauren
Lauren, Lauren

In all my life I've never known a time
As sweet as the one
We're in, we're in

Can you feel the light that shines
Bright as the moon at night
On you and me

Singing a song and we're happy tonight
Though we're apart
We're never far

My heart is yours and yours is mine
For what it's worth
We'd never trade the time

Can you feel the light that shines
Bright as the moon at night
On you and me

Red lights glow
And slow me down
Don't be the one who
Let's me down

Singing a song for a blue-eyed girl
Her name is Lauren
Lauren, Lauren
Track Name: This Boy
THIS BOY
(The Beatles)

That boy
Took my love away
Oh, he'll regret it someday
But this boy wants you back again

That boy
Isn't good for you
Though he may want you too
This boy wants you back again

Oh, and this boy
Would be happy
Just to love you
But oh, my, my, my
That boy
Won't be happy
Til he's seen you cry

This boy
Wouldn't mind the pain
Would always feel the same
If this boy gets you back again

This boy
This boy
This boy
