I'm a singer first, and a song writer by accident.

:00:24.:00:27.

My first calling was industrial plumbing but I kind of disregarded

:00:27.:00:33.

that for a while. I'm the song writer. I didn't set out to do that

:00:33.:00:39.

but... Everybody else was doing it so you had to do it too. That's

:00:39.:00:43.

right. Some of the songs I'm supposed to play today I've never

:00:43.:00:48.

played. So it will be fun. They're sticking a camera in our face for a

:00:48.:00:56.

kick off. That doesn't happen very often. Just make some noise, see

# As I stumble through the rubble I'm dazed, seeing double

:04:33.:04:39.

# And I'm truly mystified

:04:39.:04:42.

# My new home is a shell hole filled with tears and muddy water

:04:42.:04:51.

# And bits of broken heart

During the latter

:13:57.:14:02.

During the latter part of the 1970s, I had a brief career as a bona fide

:14:02.:14:07.

pop star. It lasted for about three years. A pretty good innings really.

:14:07.:14:14.

I'm going to do a song now from that brief time when I was

:14:14.:14:22.

breathing the sweet air of the hit # Oh, I can't take

Thank you.

Thank you. Well,

:17:24.:17:27.

Thank you. Well, I was trying to write a song about the haphazard

:17:27.:17:32.

nature of human existence and how all the plan wes put on paper

:17:32.:17:37.

suddenly just tend to vanish into smoke when real life comes along.

:17:37.:17:42.

This song came out. I tried my best to throw it away all the time

:17:42.:17:45.

because the word Elvis kept dropping into my head all the time

:17:45.:17:49.

as I was writing it and I kind of thought, you can't put Elvis into a

:17:49.:17:54.

song, Paul, that's tacky, it's like putting radio in the songs and a DJ

:17:54.:17:58.

might play it or something, you know. Tacky. I tried that. Anyway,

:17:58.:18:03.

I came back to the song after a few months of leaving it alone and

:18:03.:18:13.
:18:13.:18:41.

persisted with it and this is what # Everyone knows

:18:41.:18:51.
:18:51.:19:12.

# Up on the roof top # Nobody knows why Elvis

:19:12.:19:22.
:19:22.:19:24.

# Nobody knows why some of us get broken hearts

:19:25.:19:32.

# And some of us find a world that's clear and bright

:19:32.:19:39.

# You could be packed up and ready

:19:39.:19:42.

# Knowing exactly where to go

:19:42.:19:45.

# How come you miss the connection?

:19:45.:19:48.

# Johnny will keep his illusions

:20:15.:20:19.

# What else can he do?

:20:19.:20:27.

# And you can pretend that it would be different

:20:27.:20:33.

# If it happened to you

:20:33.:20:41.

# But up on the roof top It's a whole other world

:20:41.:20:48.

# And who could see heaven And not want to stay?

:20:48.:20:58.
:20:58.:20:59.

# Nobody knows why Elvis threw it all away

:20:59.:21:05.

# Nobody knows what Ruby had to hide

I identify with

:29:27.:29:32.

I identify with that song! That's a great song. This is one of

:29:32.:29:38.

the first songs I wrote. I didn't realise until quite a few years

:29:38.:29:43.

later when somebody was trying to tell me how to write songs that I

:29:43.:29:49.

didn't even have a chorus in the song, it was just four verses.

:29:49.:29:54.

Somehow, it remained one of the most asked for songs that I wrote

:29:54.:30:04.
:30:04.:30:19.

so I still believe in it even if it # Snow-bound siren

:30:19.:30:27.

# The sunrise screeching down the line

# You're tired of dreaming someone else's dreams

# When they really don't include you any longer

:30:59.:31:05.

# Miles from home, you're sliding down with each day

:31:05.:31:08.

# And you need a woman's love to make you stronger

:31:09.:31:14.

# And lately you've been getting doubts

:31:14.:31:18.

# A voice inside keeps calling out

:31:18.:31:21.

# That someone else's dreams don't get you nowhere

:31:21.:31:29.

# So shut the suitcase Kiss the year goodbye

:31:29.:31:36.

# Don't let nobody stop you at the doorway

:31:36.:31:39.

# And close the shutters on this empty room

:31:39.:31:45.

# Where these crazy dreams come crawling to devour you

:31:45.:31:50.

# And head on out across that line

:31:50.:31:54.

# Where she's been waiting all this time

:31:54.:31:59.

# And tell her that you want her there forever

This is a new record but it's not a new song. I wrote it 20 years ago.

I wrote it when it was kind of, when you write songs and somebody

else covers them, it's not cool to put your own version out, you know,

I

:50:14.:50:14.

I started

:50:14.:50:15.

I started trying

:50:15.:50:24.

I started trying to write songs seriously in about 1969 and my

:50:24.:50:30.

first efforts were terrible really because they were all, you know,

:50:30.:50:35.

clumsy and very obvious rewrites of songs that had already been written

:50:35.:50:41.

by people I admired. But I could be wrong here, but I would imagine

:50:41.:50:47.

that's probably how... Yeah Yeah still doing it, yeah...

:50:47.:50:54.

Anyway, in my case, I hammered away for years. Then one day in about

:50:54.:50:59.

1972, I wrote this song and it was like a seismic eruption because I

:50:59.:51:04.

found, to my astonishment, I'd actually come up with an idea of my

:51:04.:51:11.

own, an original tune that I hadn't stolen off somebody else, or an

:51:11.:51:15.

original idea, the tune might be stolen from somebody else, but

Three songwriters share the stage at west London's beautiful Porchester Hall and treat the audience to self-penned songs from their illustrious careers.

Perched at the piano like a benign ringmaster in shades and flowing white beard, Leon Russell is the great American songwriter responsible for such mega-classics as the Carpenters' Song for You and This Masquerade and Rita Coolidge's Delta Lady.

Punk and pub rock pioneer Nick Lowe is an affable presence as he croons his fabulous songs - ranging from the hit Cruel to Be Kind to (What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding (familiar to many via The Bodyguard film) and the darkly intense The Beast In Me, written for Johnny Cash and used in hit film Hangover 2.

Irish singer-songwriter Paul Brady exudes passion with his fiery voice and energetic finger-picking guitar. Admired by the likes of Bob Dylan and Tina Turner, his songs straddle folk and pop, from the rousing The World Is What You Make It to the tender Smile.
