@musixmatch Hi Folks My Name is Michael C. Taylor. A.K.A. " The Wizard " Toronto gave me the Nickname 30 yrs ago, It stuck because of what I Do. Beyond that, there has been but one constant in my life, through thick and thin, Music and Specifically Lyrics, the beauty of the written word, especially when combined with the warmth of worthy Sound. To me, there is Music, Poetic Lyrics and then if possible the Marriage into a Fine Songs. The Lyrics on their own are, Just Fine with me, as I have been a Published Poet in Toronto for many years and admittedly somewhat infamous for it. Then again even though I myself was never an instrumental musician, though I tried a few times, guitar twice, accordion once, Still have quite a few Pro Horners. ( leave that to Neil-hung out outside the Yonge Station, Gasworks listening to the music at 15 dressed to the 10's hoping to see someone famous that played there, especially if they were from Toronto. Got to support our artists struggling to put Canada on the World stage for Music, our unique contribution. Yonge street was alive with Music, especially Fridays. That was 1965ish, Always had money to go from Etobicoke to Yonge Street most Friday's. Didn't care if the bus ride home was long and sometimes non-existent, we talked about the experience as we walked home many times, it was worth it! Downtown with the Music or even without Downtown, the Music was alway's a constant even by myself. I was deemed an Alto-Tenor when I was 5-6 yrs old, invited to join the Ontario Choir, couldn't finance it.I've sung All my life no matter who was listening, where I was, alone? Good! , better for me, practice without the criticism. I was always my own worse critic, never good enough, had to be a better vocalist. That's when it Hit Me Hard! Wak, Without the meaning of lyrics, the instrumental just faded away into insignificance. It had to make sense, have heart, strong feeling, heartfelt. The words had to hit below the belt so to speak or they where Nothing. The best experience in my life has constantly been when experiencing an epiphany through the Magic of the Beauty of the written word. I rest my case and Truly trust my contributions will earn your trust and respect in the days to come. my best effort has always been my forte, especially with something so earthshaking to me and I know many others.
Not to be repetitive but, again
