New Official Video: Super Clean Escape Machine

Today at noon Eastern-US is the world premier of my official video for “Super Clean Escape Machine” – my first musical collaboration with my father Bob. He had the idea for a song about cycling – his chosen mode of exercise during this pandemic. He’s a real aficionado of cinematography. My dad became fascinated with the availability of stable-motion camera tech that was only available to big-budget studios until recently. This mirrors my own fascination with the widespread availability of professional recording software that has turned basements into studios and unleashed a torrent of creativity during what would otherwise be downtime.

The song extolls the many benefits of cycling, like how “It cleans my arteries and mind.” When my dad wrote this poem, he did not know I had written “Run With My Troubles,” a song that promotes running for mental health – an amazing coincidence, which further supports the case I make for exercising on my forthcoming album “Salt and Sand: Rock Songs to Heal the Mind.”

Lyrics:

Verse 1: 
I love riding on my bike
It brings me feelings that I like 
My excellent escape machine
That helps me keep our planet clean
I love the energy it brings
And clarity, it gives me wings.
My bike's a pal I animate
We roll, I chill and concentrate.
We glide down city streets and country trails
Motion casts its spell and never fails

Chorus: 
My super clean escape machine
My super clean escape machine
I’m off the grid and on the scene
On my super clean escape machine

Verse 2:
We can go from near to far
Rolling cleaner than a car
It cleans my arteries and mind
And lets me leave my cares behind.
We squeeze through narrow passage ways.
And windy paths, on sunny  days.
We can ride by stunning sights
Or savor balmy moonlit nights
We glide down city streets and country trails
Motion casts its spell and never fails

Chorus: 
My super clean escape machine
My super clean escape machine
I’m off the grid and on the scene   
On my super clean escape machine

Bridge:
Pedaling fast or coasting slow
We’re flying low - flying low

Solo

Chorus:
My super clean escape machine
My super clean escape machine
I’m off the grid and on the scene   
On my super clean, super clean

My super clean escape machine
My super clean escape machine
I’m off the grid and on the scene   
On my super clean escape machine
