Barely Alive

I tend to be a perfectionist. Usually a promise from me is as good as done. When things fall apart, and failure is unavoidable, I tend to stress out. I don’t like to brand myself with failure. I want to reach my goal and accomplish the things I set out to achieve.

This song is about those times when my word meant nothing. When I did not do as I said, for whatever reason. When things went wrong. In troubled times such as this, all I have is the chance to react properly to the mistake. When I step up to fix it, to erase the error, all I can hope is that people believe I am trying with all I have, to do what is right. To do as I promised.

I put so much pressure on myself, but it’s because I care. You have no idea what I put myself through. Maybe this song will help explain. Peace out, much love. Jay ~

Diabolique: Get Your Spook On

Diabolique Magazine

Heather Drain and Diabolique Magazine were kind enough to include Rain Station Dark Ride in their list of must own Halloween CDs. Check out, Music To Get Your Spook On. You can listen to the Dark Ride CD or watch the Halloween Animations at JackOLantern.ORG ~ So glad to be included (we’re number two on the list), Mark and I love this time of year. Rain Station = Halloween!!!!

Science!!!

Mark came over to work on some of the tracks we started back in 2009. Instead of doing much of that, we started a whole new Halloween song. It’s October, we can’t help it. We have to make Halloween music.

Science!!! Animated Halloween Music by Rain Station

Rain Station on Band Camp

Mark took the time to load the Rain Station catalog including our earliest home 4 track recordings to BandCamp.com, many of which I no longer had. Too many of my old CD-R discs died over the years, so it’s nifty to hear these ancient relics. Thanks Mark for digging out the master archives of these tunes and bringing them back to life!

Listen Hear! Rain Station on BandCamp

I’m Getting Spooky

Click photo for videoIt’s October and Mark came over to record, and since Rain Station can only record Halloween Music during the month of October, we did just that. We recorded a Halloween tune. Now it’s been a couple years since we’ve recorded a Halloween themed song, and it felt good Gettin’ Spooky once again with Mark.

Here’s the FREE MP3 track RS-06: I’m Getting Spooky
OK, I listened to the first mix on my big stereo system and I wanted to tweak Mark’s vocals so I could understand each word better. So here’s the song AGAIN… let me know if this is a better mix!
I’m Getting Spooky (RS-06.1)

Halloween Animation

Halloween AnimationI wanted to celebrate my repaired hard drive with a brand new Halloween Animation. This is Monster Hunter by Rain Station. From the Halloween themed CD, Dark Ride. I just finished Flashin’ it up, and here it is. Halloween is a great time of year, so get out your chainsaw with Monster Hunter and party it up. Now that the Haunted Hard Drive has been repaired by the kind folk in Toronto, Mark and I can get back to working on our latest music project. Maybe… you see… Now that the holidays are here, time is going to be hard to find. Mark, are you out there? Have fun Trick O’ Treatin’ and I hope to see you soon! Happy Halloween everyone, and to all boys and ghouls a good night!
