about

"If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants." - Sir Isaac Newton.

"There is no doubt that I have been lifted up to greater heights by those who choose to create music. 'It's Personal' is a small sampling of five songs showcasing a handful of artists, who's work has affected me greatly in my life. There are many, many more of course, so hopefully, this is just the beginning." - Gail George

Gail talks about "It's Personal" with Christopher Arnel of Real Music Radio and why it's so important to her. www.mixcloud.com/UMMS_Master_Class/the-uptown-minneapolis-music-scene-master-class-with-gail-george/

about

Gail George New York, New York

Genre defying, the songwriting and production of Gail George is the sum of her musical parts. Melodic vocals over chiming guitars. Swirls of synth driven 80s piano and keyboards. A nod to 60s and 70s soulful pop and psychedelic rock all help to create a unique and distinctive but identifiable sound. She’s California pop meets New York grit. With a touch of whimsy and a whole lot of heart. ... more

Track Name: Blue
Songs are like tattoos
You know I've been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
Hey Blue
There is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in
Well there're so many sinking
Now you've got to keep thinking
You can make it thru these waves
Acid, booze, and ass
Needles, guns, and grass
Lots of laughs 
Lots of laughs

Everybody's saying that hell's the hippest way to go well 
I don't think so 
Gonna take a look around it though Blue I love you

Hey Blue 
Here is a shell for you
Inside you'll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
Here is your song from me
Track Name: Crazy
I go crazy
Sometimes when I'm alone
And I thinks things
That really aren't my own
I'm so desperate
I reach for the telephone
For someone to save me
When I'm sinking like a stone

Then you're there even when you're not there
Then you're there even when you're not there
Always like a spark in the distance somewhere
You're still there even when you're not there

I'm awakened
From the longest dream
And I'm shaking
The fear is gripping me
Why can't this be easy
Why can't there be some way around
I'm so trapped by
All the secrets I have found

Then you're there even when you're not there
Then you're there even when you're not there 
How can you be both a circle and a square
You're still there even when you're not there

This is what I know
This is what I know
Don't ask me how I know

There's this language
That I don't understand
In between the lines
It slips right through my hands
Certain, I'm frozen where I stand
Listening gently
As every sentence lands

Then you're there even when you're not there
Then you're there even when you're not there 
Always like a spark in the distance somewhere
You're still there even when you're not there

Then you're there even when you're not there
Then you're there even when you're not there 
How can you be both a circle and a square
You're still there even when you're not there

Words and Music by Don Hawkins
Track Name: Living Without You
The milk truck hauls the sun up
The paper hits the door
And the subway shakes my floor
And I think about you
Time to face the dawning gray
Of another lonely day
It's so hard living without you

It's so hard
It's so hard
It's so hard living without you

Ev'ryone's got something
They're out tryin' to get some more
They got something to get up for
But I ain't about to
Nothing's gonna happen
Nothing's gonna change
It's so hard living without you

It's so hard
It's so hard
It's so hard living without you
Track Name: Pop Life
What's the matter with your life

Is the poverty bringing you down?

Is the mailman jerking you 'round?

Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the matter with your world
?
Was it a boy when you wanted a girl? (boy when you wanted a girl)

Don't you know straight hair ain't got no curl (no curl)

Life it ain't real funky
Unless it's got that pop, Dig it

Pop life

Everybody needs a thrill

Pop life

We all got a space to fill

Pop life

Everybody can't be on top

But life it ain't real funky

Unless it's got that pop, Dig it

Tell me, what's that underneath your hair?

Is there anybody living there? (anybody living there)

You can't get over, if you say you just don't care (don't care)

Show me a boy who stays in school

And I'll show you a boy aware, Dig it

Pop life

Everybody needs a thrill

Pop life

We all got a space to fill

Pop life

Everybody can't be on top

But life it ain't real funky

Unless it's got that pop, Dig it
Track Name: I Think It's Going To Rain Today
Broken windows and empty hallways,
A pale dead moon in a sky streaked with grey.
Human kindness is overflowing,
And I think it's gonna rain today.

Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles,
The frozen smiles to chase love away.
Human kindness is overflowing,
And I think it's gonna rain today.

Lonely, lonely.
Tin can at my feet,
I think I'll kick it down the street.
That's the way to treat a friend.

Bright before me the signs implore me:
Help the needy and show them the way.
Human kindness is overflowing,
And I think it's gonna rain today.
