Original Song – “Do You Wonder”

Do You Wonder symbolizes how I’ve always pondered life as far back as I can remember.  It’s a slow, short little song that’s probably best performed simply with a lone singer accompanied by a solo acoustic guitar.  It doesn’t require a big production – just a distant, dreamy and soft voice paired with the most stripped down accompaniment on guitar.  The intent is to simply reflect on life – years past, present and future – and the meaning of it all…”As the snow swirls around, Outside my window today, As I sit here watching the day, Do you think about life, Do you dream about love…”

I recorded “Do You Wonder” on Set 17 in 1997, and it’s a short, whimsical little daydream of a song about my thoughts about life, “On a cold winter’s day, As the snow swirls around, Outside my window today, As I sit here watching the day…” This was my second take after my voice cracked while trying to sing at the very top of my range on my first attempt! Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

I’ve already shared my version of “Do You Wonder” from Set 17 while playing the guitar, and now here’s the piano version from Set 18. On Sets 18 and 19 I tried experimenting for the first time playing the piano in the studio while singing a few of my songs, and it’s only appropriate with this song, as I originally wrote it on the piano ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
