Mary and I traveled to China, Hong Kong, and Thailand in 1994.
Bangkok made a very strong impression on me.
So I came up with this song.
Bangkok is the type of place that can create a sort of sensory overload and it resulted in this very James Bond type theme.

“Sweet On You”

I have written two songs for my wife thus far. The first is an instrumental simply called “Mary.”

The second song is with vocal and is highlighted here.

Since the vast majority of my recordings have been instrumental and featuring guitar, there are a lot of people who have only come to know of me in recent years who are unaware of the fact that there are quite a lot of songs where I do sing. Most of my vocal stuff comes from before the year 2000, but this song appeared on the 2013 album “Simplicity” which had several vocal things on it.

I quote Jimi Hendrix from “The Wind Cries Mary” at the end of the guitar solo, which is fitting considering Mary is my wife’s name.
