August 11th – Dean Friedman – The Deli Song (Corned Beef on Wry)

Something a bit different today.

I really loved Dean Friedman’s Well, Well Said The Rocking Chair album as a kid.  Particularly the title track and Shopping Bag Ladies – but this one was my favourite.  A couple of years ago, Friedman ran a competition on his website for the best YouTube video to one of his songs – and this was the winner.  I think it’s really sweet.  Its victory is, I am sure, completely unrelated to the fact that it features his daughter Hannah!

Friedman continues to write and perform and has produced albums of children’s songs, composed film themes and, in 1985, apparently wrote “a seminal work on the newly emerging synthesizer industry called Complete Guide to Synthesizers, Sequencers, and Drum Machines.”

Well, well…
