‘MARY JANE GREEN’ GETS HER ODE FROM NICE DAY BAND
Temecula, CA – Though Gen. John Allen has returned to Kabul to resume his duties as the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, ex-CIA General David Petraeus’ sex scandal continues to reverberate through the Empire’s hallowed hallways in D.C. In one aspect, we humans seem so capable of so much and yet we, the males, cannot deny our primal urge when it comes to banality overcome by a warm smile and a compliment from the opposite sex. I can attest to this and do so in the forthcoming Memoirs of Mr. Pete & Mary Jane Green.
But the pull of a man who has a 37-year old relationship with the same wife is not magic. What constitutes magic is when a young talented valley songwriter writes a theme song about a book he has never even seen, the aforementioned Memoirs.
Backtracking my emails to catch up after the Prop 37 campaign adventure which is still yielding stories, I came across this song from Vincent Alexander of Nice Day, the band that opened for Foghat when they played Old Town Temecula. Fresh from his Hollywood stint, here is Ode to Mary by Vincent Alexander Chiofalo (Nice Day) All rights reserved.
After listening to the song and almost not believing my ears or what my heart was saying about the intent of the song’s meaning, I texted Vince and got this reply,
“Ya buddy, the concept for the song is a personification of the Mary Jane plant! So Im happy to hear it fired off the right triggers.”
Now that’s Mary Jane’s magic poonannie power. Thanks Vince, woohoo!!
