Original Song – “Do You Think About Me”

Do You Think About Me is a whimsical, daydream of a song that was originally written as a single verse and chorus – but I’ve added verses two, three and four this morning while creating this post.  This song is one of my earliest works and I’ve included the music notation to try to give you a feeling for the work that’s gone into these songs of mine.  My earliest songs were written on the piano and I tried to write out the musical notation, but it proved to be too difficult for me to get the timing right.  My later songs were written on the guitar and I simply focused on noting the individual chords.  Do You Think About Me reminds me of daydreaming while watching the clouds floating by and thinking about someone far, far away…and wondering if they’re thinking about me in the same way, too…  “Do you think about me, Do you think about me at all, Do you dream about me, Do you dream about me at all…”

I originally wrote “Do You Think About Me” as a whimsical daydream of a little song, with just a single verse and chorus on the piano in 1990 ~ and have since written three additional verses after recording this track as part of Set 16 in the mid-90s. This song was very difficult for me to sing, as it spans quite a fluctuating range, and I sang it with only the quietest guitar strumming to try to help me find the right notes. For the most part it works! Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Earlier I posted the first take of my original song called “Do You Think About Me” from Set 16 that I recorded back in 1997. I decided to post the a cappella version as well for you ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

(As with all of my early songs during which I worked with my friend Gordon Olvera, I’ve shared the copyright with him for trying to give voice to my songs.  Also, emailed versions of these songs lose their chord alignment and formatting, so refer to the original post and/or the scanned lyric sheet as your guide.)
