Christmas Eve

Global climate change has caused warming in areas that usually get snow in late December, preventing Santa from using his sleigh to deliver toys on Christmas.
NOTES
Christmas eve of 2015 in Northeastern Pennsylvania was 70 degrees. That was very unusual for an area that normally gets blizzards in late December. I asked myself if this was a fluke or the result of global climate change. Either way, we have to start thinking of new ways for Santa to deliver the toys on Christmas eve. Those thoughts prompted me to write this song.

My intention was to create a song with a playful nature …

This Country style is one of many genres and styles you will find in Taylor Sappe's compositions.
NOTES
This song was written while stuck in traffic. Interstate 81 near Pine Grove, Pa. was under construction and traffic was backed up. I decided to bypass the long delay by going through Pine Grove,, only to find that the main road through town was also under construction. As I sat at a stand still, voicing my frustrations, I realized that my situation was a prime topic for a country song, so I wrote a song that …

By the Bay

A smooth jazz instrumental composition, with piano, upright bass, and drums, inspired by a beautiful day near the Chesapeake Bay in the Baltimore area.
NOTES
Although inspired by beautiful weather near the bay, this piece was an experiment using some of the features of Cubase 7.5. A chord track combined with midi loops and an arranger track constructed this entire arrangement.

Google It

"Google It" has become a household term. It doesn't matter what search engine you are using. The common term for any search engine is "Google It".
NOTES
Because "Google It" is a household term, I felt it appropriate to write a song about it. With the fast paced lives we all live in today's society we need to get information quickly...at the speed of life. There is no time to look through an encyclopedia on your book shelf or search through a library full of books on a particular topic. All you need to do is Google it.

I thought Google …
