Christine Lavin — Cold Pizza For Breakfast (November 17, 2009/2015)

           Christine Lavin — Cold Pizza For Breakfast 
Ξ★  There’s a lot of fun stuff here, but also my most requested song, which is a ballad, “The Kind Of Love You Never Recover From,” with Robin Batteau playing lush violins at the end — very romantic.

★  Lavin’s 20th solo album is her most adventurous to date. It’s funny, serious, topical, inventive — she simply never runs out of songwriting material. Nine new songs join three updated versions of her most requested tunes, along with a surprising cover of The Killers’ Human. She’s joined by violinist Robin Batteau on five tracks, and also reads an entertaining excerpt of her autobiography, set to be published in spring 2010.
★  This CD is coming out in November in advance of my book coming next year titled COLD PIZZA FOR BREAKFAST:  A MEM–wha??  There are nine new songs, two cover tunes and three updated old favorites. The CDs are available at a special pre–order price for those of you who like to be ahead of the curve.  Just click on “Yellow Tail Records” above. 
★  Years ago I stopped singing “Cold Pizza For Breakfast” because the bridge of the song, about Dr. Herman Tarnower and Jean Harris was too mean.  But when a high school choir in Kalamazoo asked for the sheet music I told them “You can’t sing this song — the bridge is mean!”  But they said, “We don’t care!”  I had no choice but to rewrite the bridge for these kids.  Now that part is about Oprah.  Hope she doesn’t mind . . .
★  Violinist Robin Batteau plays on this new version of “The Kind Of Love You Never Recover From.”  It’s the most romantic song I have ever written, and now with the strings on it . . . if this doesn't get you making out with your sweetheart, nothing will!  He also adds his special touch to "That Elusive Blue," and my cover of The Killers' song, "Human."  I never dreamed I'd ever do a Killers’ tune, but I just LOVE this song.  A big thank you to producer Brian Bauers for all the hard work he put in on this album. And to Phillip E. Klum for mastering the disk.  Maureen Bennett O'Connor designed this sleek package (you can't see the back but I know you'll dig it).  Maureen, Brian, and Phil are all wonderful to work with, so if you are in need of studio or design work, I give all three the highest recommendations!
★  On track 14 I read an excerpt from the book to give you an idea of what kind of book it will be.  Check out Tell Me Press for more information on that.
★  There's a bonus live track at the very end of the CD.  Rene Ruiz of the a cappella group Toxic Audio challenged me to write a "dude" version — "Good Thing SHE Can't Read My Mind" — this performance was taped live at "The Ark" in Ann Arbor in June.  Until I played it in front of live audiences, I had no idea what a nerve this song hits.  Hope you dudes appreciate it!
★  For the 11 new songs, just click on the titles and you'll see the lyrix. I also included some fascinating links in those lyrix. 
★  If you can only buy one CD today, buy mine.  If you can buy two, buy two of mine!  I'll autograph them.  Makes a lovely gift!

Cold Pizza For Breakfast
from The Bellevue Years
01
Some people eat grapefruit for breakfast
Some people eat oatmeal
There are those
Who are sure
Granola is a very good deal
But not me
I don't go for that stuff
When it comes to nourishment
I get more than enough
Nothing satisfies my taste
Then sittin' down to a great big plate of
02
Cold Pizza for Breakfast
Warm Coke to wash it down (Ahhhhh)
Maybe a couple of anchovies
Make this meal well rounded
I want Cold Pizza for Breakfast
And a pinch 'o cold spaghetti will do
But there's nothin' in the world that I like better than
Eatin' Cold Pizza with you.
03
My man takes me out for the evening
He treats me so nice
We go to the movies
We go dancing
We go for more than a slice
Yes we order a pie
We eat what we can
We take the rest home
That's part of the plan
And in the morning when sun rise
He sees that crazy look in my eyes
04
I want Cold Pizza for Breakfast
Warm Coke to wash it down (Ahhhhh)
Maybe a couple of onion rings
Make this world go round
I want Cold Pizza for Breakfast
And a pinch 'o cold spaghetti will do
But there's nothin' in the world that I like better than
Eatin' Cold Pizza with you
05
Herman Tarnaur would never approve
I can hear him (I can hear him — I can hear him)
Spinning in his grave
He could be alive eating pizza right now
Except for when it came to dating women
The good doctor did not know how to behave
ya ya ya
Herman was healthy
But Herman is dead
(Pizza surely didn't do him in)
A Pizza surely didn't do him in
(Pizza surely didn't do him in)
Jean Harris is behind bars
Lookin' quite sad
And think, do you see what I'm gettin' at
You tend to kill when you're skinny
But not when you're fat
06
So gimmie Pizza for Breakfast
Warm Coke to wash it down (Ahhhhh)
Maybe a couple of pepperoni
Make this girl well round, ah
Give me Cold Pizza for Breakfast
And a pinch 'o cold spaghetti will do
But there's nothin' in the world that I like better than
Eatin' Cold Pizza with you
Nothin' in the world that I like better than
Eatin' Cold Pizza oh oh oh
Nothin' in the world that I like better than
Eatin'
Cold Pizza
With you.
