A Song About The Coney Island Houses

Here's a wonderful surprise for everyone. We all remember that Andy was a terrific drummer and we enjoyed seeing his band at the Y. He sent me a song that he wrote about the projects. Here is Andy in his own words:

I wrote the song in the late 1980's. After a night of recording new songs at the studio, I was driving home and I just started thinking of Coney Island and growing up in a special place. You came and you went, but you always came back. Safe and secure. You know? But when you left, other elements of life affected you. It was like stepping outside of Paradise. I think I wrote the song in about 20 minutes. Andy Adams

Just recently found out about this blog site. Great!

It was paradise for us. I tend to think that it was special place and we're lucky to have those special memories. When I get down I sometimes think that no matter what happened after we had that "paradise" to ourselves.

Thanks for the song. What else you been up to?
