The "Realtor Blues" Song

I have received numerous emails and phone calls requesting a copy of "The Realtor Blues"
This song was written by Jeff Dennis (President of the Solano Association of Realtors) and music by
Brad Andersohn. The song features David Sikes (formerly of the band Boston) as the lead vocalist
and bass player.

If you would like to know how to get a free copy of this song written for the Realtors of California,
please post me a note and I'll get you your FREE copy. It's a great song. It was introduced at the
CAR meeting in Monterey Last month. I know you'll enjoy it! After you hear it, we'd love to hear
your comments. Click HERE to Listen to the Realtor Blues.


It actually has a pretty good hook, and with Dave's vocal, it makes it worthy of it's 2 1/4 minute debut!
Very Raw, uncut, and funny too. Hope you'll enjoy it as much as we enjoyed writing and performing it!! :-)

Ok. I got a couple photos to put up on here for you. Thanks for the idea Tom, and thanks for your kind words. We may have to do a 10 song NAR CD on the next go around. Somewhat joking, yet somewhat serious. Please pass this on to your other Real estate friends in your area. You got my number, call me anytime. Glad you enjoyed the song. Brad

Hi Brad,  I'd like a copy when you get a chance.  David was a longtime member of the Boston.org mailing list and I miss having him on there to give us the "inside scoop" on what he's up to.  Scott

It's great to see all of you enjoying the Realtor Blues. I am working with Jeff right now in writing the next version called, "How To Kick The Realtor Blues". We thought about using the same music and just changing the words, but the title almost sounds like it's gonna have to be a country ditty. Not sure, but it'll be a good one. I'll have to make a post later of some other projects I may be considering. This is turning out to be quite the little networking place.

Haaaaa Ha Ha Ha! This is great.! Yeah, you're right it is not one of your most top notch recordings production-wise (drum machine, an occasional "hurry, first take, get it done playing") but the song comes across and I can certainly see why people like it. It is very accessible musically (with an edge of course) and the lyrics are easy to understand and tie into the musicality perfectly. The mix is fine too.

You are the master of vocal recording. You always get a really clear, present, uncolored vocal sound...every time I've heard vocals you've recorded. What mic and preamp are you using again? I need your secret. I know I asked you this before and you showed me a DBX unit...I think...but man, your vocals are always so natural sounding, with no coloration. I think my favorite part besides the lyrics is the part of the song where you do the lead and the raunchy stuff starts...nice raunchy guitar tone and the bass and drums reminds me of later David Lee Roth's version of Tobacco Road with Vai.

Anyway, it was great to see you guys today! I can't believe how much your kids have grown. Sean is really bright and I enjoyed having an adult-based discussion with someone I remember having just entered his adolescent phase.

Man, how time passes. You and Debra look great. Of course, you still have your hair. Me? I've gotta wear a hat now so even the kids between 4 and 12 don't call me "baldy." It's good to know you're still jammin'. Robert really seemed to have wanted some jam time with you. I'm thinkin' the three of us could kick out some serious MF jams like the MC5. I'm gonna check out your website, hopefully for some BFDeal recordings.

I just googled "Realtor Blues" to get to this site. You're right, it was on the top of the page. The lyrics are clever and it was recorded well enough to touch a chord with people in your profession.

Brad,
You look totally different in the guitar picture!  Maybe you can give me some guitar lessons when you come out here on vacation!

David - did you mean Guita® Lessons? You got it my friend, I'd be happy to.  What did you think of the song?
Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) about 12 years ago
Brad,
Yeah, that's exactly what I meant.  I bought a guitar about 4 years ago and have yet to learn how to play!  The song was great!! 
Posted by Kristin Small, REALTOR -GRI, Myrtle Beach Real Estate (RE/MAX Southern Shores) about 12 years ago
We'll have to get together sometime and I'd love to show you whatever I can to get you started on that gitr!  Maybe we can do a web-conference or video chat sometime and see how that works!  Sorry for the delay in my responses David, it's been a crazy week.  :-)

Hey Brad!

I'd like a copy please.

Thank you,

Craig

Craig - you can download a FREE copy by clicking on the link in this post, it will take you to one of my music sites where you can just right click on the song and download it to your desktop or laptop computer.  I'd send you a CD, but we sold out a few months ago.  I guess that makes this a collectors edition now ey? lol~ 

 

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it.  :-)
