One From the Left (A Finger Play)

A new and original finger play from Jim Gill! The music wonderfully “illustrates” the motions for the fingers…..so listen closely as you play! The song is available on Jim’s latest CD, Vote for Jim Gill.

Words on Play

 Vote For Jim Gill?

Two years ago I began working on a new musical game that would involve words that referred to body parts, but also had other meanings.  Words such as "back," "nose (knows)," and, of course, "rear." 

After compiling a list of words that would fit my scheme I began to construct rhyming phrases.

Let’s knuckle down and cut the waste.           Shoulder burdens that we face.

At first I was thinking only of the opportunity for listeners to cheerfully focus on the active play—bending knuckles and pointing to their waists, shoulders and faces.  Anyone familiar with my songs knows that creating movement games like this, in the context of rhymes, is my signature style. 

I soon realized, however, that the rhyming phrases I was creating sounded more and more like a campaign speech and, with a smile, I playfully pursued that approach.  The result is "Vote For Jim Gill," a song in which the lyrics all reference body parts, but also reference the sorts of promises we hear during election season from candidates.
