I have so many videos now going back years, but this page has some of my current favorites:
This series combines my music with photos and quotes from great inspirational thinkers. It has become very popular on the internet.
INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES ABOUT FRIENDSHIP – Sometimes you just need someone to listen, inspired by Mr. Rogers and Marshall Rosenberg. Featuring my song “I’m Just Here To Be Here For You”
INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES ABOUT SAYING GOODBYE TO A LOVED ONE – What would you say to those you love if you only had a little time? Since we’re all only here a little while, might as well say it now. Featuring my song “The Wider View” written with Freebo.
INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES ABOUT GROWING UP – If you could talk to your younger self what would you say to help through the tough times. Featuring my song “Message To Me.”
INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES ABOUT TERRORISM – In times of crisis we need to come together. Featuring my song “There Are More Of Us Then There Are Of Them”
I’m very well known for doing fun sing-along songs at my shows, these are some of the most fun times for me.
TERRIBLY HAPPY – My most popular song of all time and perhaps my best performance of all time. This video happened totally spontaneously at a songwriting retreat. Written with Michael Sullivan and Risa Faith.
PRETTY ON THE INSIDE – It’s like my dad always said: “You gotta get yourself a good woman like I have, make sure they are pretty on the inside, not just pretty on the outside!”
HOW COULD I HAVE LIVED SO LONG WITHOUT YOU – It’s hard to have the blues when you finally find the right woman and an older age.
THE DRAMA THING – When going through a rough breakup, make it easier on yourself and avoid doing The Drama Thing!
So many good times..
IF YOU’RE BORED IN SAN DIEGO (It’s Your FAULT!) – Video features many of the great musicians and sites in my home town.
KEEP MOVING FORWARD – I working on this song while recovering from life-changing surgery. It was very inspirational to me and I hope it will be to you as well.
FREE TO DISAGREE – In times of political differences it is important to simply agree to disagree.
COLD STRANGER – One of my saddest songs, video has old time TV special effects
DON’T STOP PLAYING (SHARK BITE VERSION)
The first video using actual tracks from my album is up on youtube, it’s Don’t Stop Playing, and it contains actual footage of me being bit by a shark, it was filmed in the Bahamas a few years back.
If you look at the video where I am feeding the sharks at exactly 1:45 at the lyric “and since I’m named HAPPY” this little thing appears on the middle of the screen pointing out the exact moment one of them took a bite out of the Happyman, fortunately I was wearing wire protection so it didn’t really hurt, I was actually every exciting and you can see me looking right into the camera thinking “YEEAHHH I GOT BIT BY A SHARK!”
I hope you all won’t all think less of me, but there were moments when surrounded but 25 or so man-sized sharks that were all trying to get to my food where I experienced ACTUAL UNHAPPPINESS! Yes it’s true. I dealt with it by making up a mantra, I would look at them and say (you can see me pointing my fingers at them) “Don’t Eat The Happyman” and “I’m gonna eat your brother!” (you can see me saying this right in the camera where the vocal goes “so shake that but” right at the end) I of course had to fulfill that promise so I that night I searched all over the Bahamas for a place that had Shark Fin Soup. Man that was some tasty soup.
I am now the shark.
