about

This latest Charlie Marshall album features 11 tracks of high quality songwriting and soulful performance including some trademark romantic Charlie Marshall songs like the first track ‘Take the hand of this fool’ and the love song ‘Premonition’. My first composition combining music with my passion for science, the title track ‘Almighty Carousel’ – a bit of Physics 101 rock and roll about our amazing planet! ‘Never lose heart’, a keep-on-fighting manifesto type song in the vein of Curtis Mayfield’s classic ‘Move on up’. ‘Wrap me up’, an old song recorded with Cam Butler some years ago where we were inspired by the way The Baby’s song ‘Isn’t it time’ kicks into the chorus (not the greatest song ever but something stuck in my mind about it) and tried to create a similar excitement building up to our big chorus – ‘wrap me up in your life’. A great rock song with an ecological perspective – ‘Nature’s Invitation’. A bit of a funk groove with a big chorus – ‘Stay with me’

Track Name: Almighty carousel
Allmighty Carousel

I'm spinning on this mighty magnet
Vibrating with the restless atoms
Enlivened by some strange electrons
Held steady by the gravitation

Created in a solar ferment, hard wired with electric current
Excited by the radiation but we're kind of frightened since we
split that atom

Allmighty carousel let's hope we live to tell
Don't know what's up or down, let's just keep spinning round

We're pushing 'gainst a great inertia
Mometum's gonna push us further
Bombarded by the quarks and photons
Kaleidescope of force and motion

Allmighty carousel let's hope we live to tell
Who knows what's up or down, let's just keep spinning round
