THE REAL THING

submitted by: Karen Griebel

romantic-official-recording-studio-cd-giftFor our 2-year anniversary, I had written a song for my honey consisting of lyrics that tell a “story” of our relationship.  Before I recorded it at home on my little recorder, I played it on my guitar for a friend.  He suggested that I get it professionally recorded and put on CD.  So a bunch of the members of my jazz band and I , with the help of this guy’s friend, were able to get studio time pretty inexpensive and record it on CD! I made labels and a CD cover on photo paper, with a “barcode” and everything to make it look like a real CD.  The song is titled “Forever My Angel” and the card and wrapping paper were “themed” with angels on it.  He was a bit confused why all of the angels….then he opened it and saw the CD and was shocked as to how “real” it was–even with a legal copyright with a dedication to him!  He loves the song and can’t stop humming the tune!!
