Hg Schmitz - Too Much Data, 2005 / 2016 - HG SCHMITZ - TOO MUCH DATA, 2005 / 2016 This is my very first post in 2017. In our fast moving times life gets more and more influenced by masses of data. As a person who got born in the late 50's I remember times when only 2 TV programs were available, telephones had dial plates and my most professional recording equipment was a Dolby-C tape recorder. Today there's a lot more of media. And of course, there is also way more data that creeps into our brains causing an overdose of information. This song got originally recorded in 2005. I had just a very few guitar bits from that time I could use. Bass and drums got programmed completely new. There are no other instruments used. TOO MUCH DATA is a simple structured punk rock tune.

MELVIN DONOVAN + HG SCHMITZ LIFE IS THE HARDEST, 2007 / 2017 The instrumental of this song got originally recorded in 2007. I had the opportunity of using the equipment from my friend Philip who also had been responsible for the recordings of the acoustic guitars. A while ago around the last quarter of 2016 I asked Melvin if he likes to write some lyrics for the tune and to sing to it. He's always my favourite choice when I'm doing music which is going into any direction of folk. And my choice was right - Melvin never disappoints me. He also added his unmistakably sounding 12-string acoustic guitar which became an absolute winner for the song.

HG SCHMITZ - ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES, 2006 / 2016 HAPPY BIRTHDAY KENT TAYLOR ! We both Hilde and I want to send you our best wishes. 60 - it's a magic number ! In 2 years I will reach that age where you are now. Here is some Deep Roots Reggae for you ! Jah, Mon !! Enjoy !! Written, recorded and programmed in 2006. Remastered 2016. All tracks are the original ones from 10 years ago. I limited myself to use this stuff only and haven't added any new tone. Just let me say some words to the video. Cannabis can be a magical help for people who are suffering under horrible pains. It isn't just the drug devil as many people see it. Reggae like this is and stays one of my favourite music styles. I'm still working on some more remasters. HG, 2006 - 12 / 2016 © 2016 HGS PRODUCTIONS

KAIBOARD + HG SCHMITZ - BAREFOOT JIGS ON PUSHPINS, 2016 This is my very first common project with Kai we did by our own. He once told me he'd been playing in a metal band in the past. So we decided to work on an instrumental that I recorded several years ago - not really a metal but a hard rock tune. ( or is it metal ??? ) Kai played all keys and synths, did the final mix and mastering and edited the video. I played the guitars and programmed bass and drums. Kai's skills on the keys are tremendous. It is such a piece of luck for me having him as my partner on this tune. This song is for all lovers of harder rock 'n' roll.

HG SCHMITZ - MISIMPRESSIONS, 2016 This is reggae music - some deep roots reggae. The song got originally recorded in 2006. It was my year of doing a lot of reggae stuff. I have started to remaster a serie of songs from that time. "MISIMPRESSIONS" is one of them. I love this monotone groove and the simplicity of that tune. Less is really more sometimes. The song contains no complex guitar solos or other elaborate arrangements. Even the horns are very simple but this is exactly what the song needs. So I hope you like it the same as I do.

MAURICIO GARAY - HG SCHMITZ JUST FOLLOW YOUR NOSE, 2016 A real pleasure for me having the opportunity of working with one of the best vocal artists I know - MAURICIO GARAY. The instrumental got recorded many years ago. Before I asked Mauricio to sing to it I did a complete remix and remaster of the original tracks. The vocals had always been missing on the tune but now I got the perfect singer for this piece of music. You made me very happy with the final results, Mauricio.

STIG JONES + HG SCHMITZ - LUNATIC BLUES, 2016 This is the very first common project of Alan and me. We once worked on the legendary "Experiment Project" but we never did a particular song together. That changes today. A while ago I sent Alan a blues instrumental which got originally recorded around 2005 or 2006. I asked him if he would like to write some lyrics for the tune and to put his awesome and unique raw voice onto the song. He agreed and today we can present our final results. As an enthusiast of the blues Alan participated many times in the "Blues Thursday" on Fandalism. For me it is my first contribution ever to that happening.

HG SCHMITZ - BIG MOUTH AND COLD FEET, 2016 The day of decision is coming closer. This is my statement about both - pest and cholera. I disbelieve the day of decision will be the day of judgement at the same time. Whoever wins this election - what the world gets is a disease. One of both candidates will be the next President of The United States. Can you imagine ? A disaster for the whole world. I guess being stoned could be the better way to stand it.

ANNEMIEK BEEX - HG SCHMITZ WOOPIE, 2016 Written by ANNEMIEK BEEX. She played all keys, added the opening guitar riff which is running through the entire song, programmed the bass line and did the video editing. I programmed the drums, but I have to confess that my drum line only works in combination with Annemiek's drums which she also programmed for the original recording she sent me. You don't really hear her drums in the final mix but without them my drum line would be worth nothing. So please trust me - they are definitely there. I played also all other guitars and did the final mix and mastering. Actually I had absolutely no time for joining Annemiek on a collab but she captured me with her FUNK and JAZZ ! Currently I have no amp. My Marshall is out of function and I can't afford the reparing. So I used the Guitar Rig sounds and played my guitars directly into my audio interface. That needs a lot of adjustments and is very time consuming. Thanks for sending me this tune, Annemiek. Actually you haven't asked me to join you on this song but I couldn't resist working on it ! That wasn't the first time it happened like this. Annemiek & HG, 09 / 2016 © 2016 - Annemiek Beex

SAGOBA + HG SCHMITZ - MIAMI NIGHTLIFE, 2016 Sam and I came together for a new collaboration. For me it is such a great kind of working with him. We are complementing one another perfectly during the whole production process. We scrutinised ourselves continuously, gave advices to each other, recommended new ideas and talked a lot about our tune just to find the best improvements for the entire project. For instance, we both worked on the percussions which are included and it took us a longer time to find the optimal solution. It is just fun working with a skilled and extremely talented musician and producer like him. In case of singing there's only one Sam Gould. His voice is simply unique. He's not a vocalist only - he is a singer artist in the very best meaning of the word. Without his passion and the addings he put on to the tune this song would be just an ordinary piece of music. I am very proud of having you on my side here, Sam.

HG SCHMITZ - THE CROWN OF ALL, 2013, (Reworked Version 2016) This song got originally written and recorded in 2013. Now I remastered the audio track but actually there was another thing that bothered me since 3 years. I had always been unsatisfied with the faults on the video. At that time I used an unlicensed video software. The big drawback was that it faded in the brand's name right into the middle of the picture here and there. It was a test version. This particular song is one of my personal favourites of all songs I've ever recorded. It was time to recreate the video and that's what I did now.

HILDE SVENDSRUD - JOHNNY GRAUENGAARD - HG SCHMITZ MARIA'S LIES, 2016 After several harder rock, funk and punk songs I posted lately this new production is totally different. MARIA'S LIES is a slow and calm rock ballad. Hilde and I asked Johnny Grauengaard to join us and that Danish man who lives his life in Sweden knows exactly what a tune needs. Actually, he always sung the lead vocals when Hilde and I worked with him but this time he took himself back putting his focussing on some additional vocals and the backings. And I tell ya - he did it absolutely perfectly. Thank you very much for being with us on this project, Johnny. You have supported Hilde's leads tremendously great and I think it is almost impossible to make it better than this. My Sweetheart Hilde exceled herself on this song. I'm so proud of her. She's a brilliant vocalist and she performed this particular vocal exercise in a perfect manner. I love you, Snuff ! Please enjoy your listen Ladies and Gentlemen.

Her beauty was a blessing and the shadows on the wall - left her heart behind - Life can be so cruel - darkness is the dancer of the broken mind(s) under the blue moon she could break down and cry - nowbody saw cause nobody could see Marias lies - they could fall into - Marias eyes - Everybody wanted a piece of Marias lies - Marias eyes - Marias lies They got her heart broken in so many ways ! Everybody can get their heart broken some day - and if they fall into the ground again ( "the broken Hearts") they fall again and nobody knows they fall again about the beauty of Marias lies !

HG SCHMITZ - HEEDLESS MANIACS, 2010 / 2016 22nd of July, 2016 - a day of mourning for Germany. On that particular day I'd been on my way back home from Norway. While my stopover at the airport of Amsterdam where I waited for the connection flight to Germany my cohabitee Hilde Svendsrud sent me a message with the news about the shooting in Munich. So I checked the internet for some more information but the situation was quite unclear. After 2 days have passed by now we finally know that 10 people have lost their lives. A young man in the age of 18 killed 9 innocent persons and committed suicide after his brutal actions. There was this unreleased song from 2010 with the title "HEEDLESS MANIACS" I got reminded of by these horrible happenings. I want to dedicate it to the victims and their relations.

I added the drums, programed the saxophone and made the mix and final mastering. Mark is a master of pop tunes like this. Most of his music is more smooth, mellow and sometimes a little sad but this time it is not. This is happy music and I'm really glad I became a part of it. Please enjoy Ladies and Gentlemen !!

HG SCHMITZ - FULL MOON OVER LILLEHAMMER, 2013 / 2016 More than 3 years ago I made my very first attempt in composing and recording classical music. At that time I produced a soundtrack for a movie. There had been a lot of material I didn't use for this film music and so I decided to put all the leftovers together to a new production. Creating classical music is maybe the biggest challenge for a producer because everything you do on guitar or bass, all the programmings, the arrangements and the mix needs a different approach as producing rock or pop music. So here comes something totally different as you usually know from me. This work is subdivited into 3 parts: Act 1 - Prelude - "Drum Fun" Act 2 - "Full Moon Over Lillehammer" Act 3 - "Another Day, Another Way" There is a list of the instruments and sounds I used at the end of the video. Btw, the photo got shot by HILDE SVENDSRUD from the balcony of her apartment. Actually, the song had another title but Hilde's picture inspired me to change it to the current one. Please enjoy !

HG SCHMITZ - SUDDEN KNOCKOUT, 2007 / 2016 This is another remaster of a song which got originally produced in 2007. The circumstances of life can knock you out from one moment to the other. Exactly this happened to me a few weeks ago. Because I can't film the whole story of these daily occurrences which are going on I looked for some symbolic footage that puts the title "SUDDEN KNOCKOUT" in a nutshell. I'm a pacifist and conscientious objector. I hate all kinds of violence. But I'm a huge fan of boxing. In the 70's I stood up in the middle of the night to watch box fights in TV. In those days boxing was at the top of the level. And the very best boxer of all times was Muhammad Ali. I decided for the "Rumble In The Jungle Fight" from 1974 in Kinshasa, Zaire (today Democratic Republic Of Kongo). With a "SUDDEN KNOCKOUT" Ali beat George Foreman totally unexpected. In my opinion it was one of the biggest sensations in history of sports the world has ever seen. Even after 42 years this event is still in my mind. Please enjoy watching the video and listening to this very hard rocker. Some would call it metal. HG, 2007 - 05 / 2016 © 2016 - HGS PRODUCTIONS

SA.GO.BA. + HG SCHMITZ - SHE'S THE CHOSEN ONE, 2014 / 2016 This song we originally released in 2014. A few weeks ago Sam started to remix and remaster the whole tune. He redid his vocals and added some new drums and bass parts. All the works of the entire new version were done by Sam. The final results are speaking for itself. Sam - you made this song as precious as it never has been before. I'm so glad having you on my side. Thanks for all the efforts you put into this track. You made this project to something very special.

HG SCHMITZ - SWEET 'n RAW, 2007 / 2016 Actually I'd never thought to bring this song to release one day. I'd always been assured about the potential the tune has but the sound quality of the original tracks from 2007 hasn't been in a satisfying condition. All the guitars got recorded on an 8-track REVOX tape recorder. Bass and drums are programed. Years ago I digitised the guitar tracks and burned them on a CD. Even the programmings of drums and bass weren't that well. I never dared to work on that stuff until last month. Then I started to put all the material together and improved the sound as good as possible. The final results aren't totally satisfying. Even now the sound isn't perfect. But there isn't more I could get out of these tracks and so I'm very happy I can present it the way its right now. This song is something for people who like it a bit harder. It is no metal but some good old hard rock. Hope you like it. HG, 2007 - 05 / 2016 © 2016 - HGS PRODUCTIONS

Hilde and I had planed to do it by our own but then we decided to ask JOHNNY GRAUENGAARD to join us. Hilde had the idea. It was a wise decision. Johnny is the perfect vocalist for pop music like this and together with Hilde I can't imagine a better team for this production.

HG SCHMITZ - THE LIGHTMAN, 2008 / 2016 17th of May - today is the National Day of Norway and the whole country is celebrating. But today is also the birthday of Mr. TEDD VAN WAGNER and Hilde and I want to celebrate it, too. HAPPY BIRTHDAY from the two of us, TEDD !!! After you accomplished the 62nd year of your life today we want to wish you many more years of happiness, fun, health and contentedness. As musicians we really adore your skills and musicianship. As humans we like the humble and modest character you have - never detached or arrogant - always with both feet on the ground and friendly to everybody. The tracks of this song I recorded and programed many years ago in 2008. The project got never published before. I have remastered the whole stuff as good as I could cause the former sound wasn't that well. Now I feel satisfied with it and want to dedicate the tune to you and your birthday of today. Btw, the title "THE LIGHTMAN" has a special meaning to me and Hilde. Maybe she tells you about it if you ask her. For myself I want to keep it as my secret, lol !!! Have a good time over there.

HG SCHMITZ - THE FEAST, 2015 The song got posted on Facebook a while ago but has never been on Fando. This is some progressive rock music. After the song got recorded I was searching for a video that fits to it. Accidentally, I found an animation with the title "The Last Feast" on Vimeo - so very similar to the title I used for the song.. This little film is telling such a nice and thoughtful story.

HG SCHMITZ - IN NEXT TO NO TIME, 2004 / 2016 HAPPY BIRTHDAY DESSYDINHO ! All best wishes from Hilde and I. The birthday reminder of Facebook told me about your upcoming birthday a few days ago. At this day I'd been working on two remasters of songs of which I thought they would have got lost for all times. I re-discovered the separate audio tracks on a hard disk drive I found in my cellar around 3 or 4 months ago. Step by step I'm going to sight all the material but haven't had so much time for it. The two tracks I mentioned are a ska piece and this reggae tune here. The ska song is for Hilde to sing. The reggae song is my birthday gift for you. It was quite difficult to remaster the old tracks satisfyingly. All tracks I used are the original tracks from 2004, except the first rhythm guitar which I recorded a week ago. The technical works on the mix had been very time consuming. There are many parts of the drums and the guitars which I dubbed to the limit, lol. Our taste in case of the reggae style is totally different but I know you love this music as much as I do. So I hope you will enjoy this little track. Btw, the horns are sounding so very naive at some points. You could never use horns sounding like this for any other kind of music but reggae. Somehow reggae music needs "oblique" sounding horns, especially this kind of dubbed roots reggae. The video I found on VIMEO is a movie about the island of Jamaica. You will see people, typical food, beautiful landscapes and you will also smell a little bit of the unique flair this paradise offers. Have a great day today. Celebrate with your loved ones and have a good time. You always use the words "ONE LOVE". The one love we both have is MUSIC ! Cheers ! HG, 04 / 2016, 2004 / 2016 © 2016 - HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - STICKY WINE GUMS, 2006 / 2016 At one of my trips to Norway more than a year ago Hilde and I had been in a 2nd hand shop for clothes. We bought a leather jacket for me. Back home I wore it a few times as long as the temparatures outside allowed it. When winter came it became too cold and I hung it up in my wardrobe. Now spring has come back to Germany and I thought the leather jacket would be right for the mild weather. So I took it out of my wardrobe donned it and ...YUCK !!!!! When I put my hand into the left pocket my fingers grabbed into some old sticky wine gums from last year !!!! They were glewing there and it was really hard work to clean it all up before I could wear the jacket again. Sometimes you need stories like that to find a good title for a song. The instrumental got originally recorded in 2006. I'm almost sure I have used parts of the guitar tracks for another song already, but I can't remember which one it was. Anyway, the material fits also well to this one here. Idea and composition, arrangement, all instruments and programmings, mix and mastering by HG SCHMITZ. Please enjoy your listen !

HG SCHMITZ - INNAH DEM DEY, 2004 / 2016 This is one of my very first seriously recorded reggae projects. It got never released before. My equipment in 2004 was small, my knowledge about mixing and mastering was low. Today I have way more possibilities. Around 3 or 4 months ago I started to remaster the original tracks. Even now the sound quality isn't perfect but the entire song sounds much better as ever before. The video got taken from Vimeo for strictly non-commercial use. Don't be worried about the plants you will see - you won't get stoned by watching them only. Reggae and Ganja belong together as same as butter belongs to bread. Roots Reggae ! Hope you enjoy.

CJ BERRY + HG SCHMITZ - BLUE ELEPHANTS, 2006 / 2016 This song got originally written and recorded in 2006. I needed most of the time for the horns arrangements. The song got never released because I lost the data. That was what I thought. But after more than 10 years I rediscovered the tracks on an old hard disk drive. There were all the audio files but the midi files got lost forever. Again: I thought so ! CJ is a genius. He reinstalled the midi files by writing them note for note and step by step into his midi editor. After remastering the tracks I asked CJ for joining me. He is the specialist for stuff like that. And folks - CJ never diappoints you ! He is such a fantastic guitarist and musician. Sometimes I really wonder about the speed and accuracy he performs. This here is another example for his breathtaking skills on the guitar. Some Fusion for you ! Please enjoy.

HILDE SVENDSRUD + HG SCHMITZ GOOD FOOD, 2016 This is one from a bunch of songs I once recorded several years ago. The former instrumentals became more important after I met Hilde. All the tunes I talk about here are rock songs. Some of them are more or less punky, some others are influenced by new wave, ska and pop rock. Hilde has the same affinity for this kind of music as I have and I can't imagine a better lyricist and vocalist for these songs. Somewhere along 2015 we started to work on them. Hilde wrote her lyrics and began to create melodies and harmonies. I used my time for improving the sounds and redoing some of the arrangements. So after more than a year around a dozen of tunes developed and "GOOD FOOD" is the 2nd one after "PORK CHOPS" we are going to post today. Others will follow step by step. "GOOD FOOD" is more or less a parody on the ordinary average nutrition of our times. Fast food and unbalanced diets are causing anorexia and overweight. The strange behaviour of us people about what and how we eat and as well the imaginations for an ideal body the media is implanting into our brains affects all of us. Hilde and I have tried to illustrate this in an ironical way. For me the best food I could get is my sweetheart, lol !! The pictures of the video just want to represent this.

There are plenty of people in both of our direct near we wouldn't describe like that and those people we see everyday. We never met Melvin in real but we call him a real friend. That may show everybody what a tremendous kind and likable man he is. We love you dear friend and we don't wanna miss the day we first met. You truely enrich our living.

TEDD VANWAGNER - PAT CLARKE - HG SCHMITZ - DON'T GET ROUGH, 2003 / 2016 This song got originally written and recorded as an instrumental in 2003. In the middle of last year Pat told me he wants to write some lyrics for the tune. So he did and sung the vocals. He recorded the tracks around July 2015 and sent them to me. At the same time he asked Tedd if he wants to join us and a good dish of "Vanweirdness" is always an enrichment for any song. So Tedd recorded his adds as well. Unfortunately the whole project got stopped when Pat's Mum passed away. Several months of grief went by and we layed the project on ice. I made a longer break from Fandalism and Tedd worked on his own productions. But now the time has come to release this work we three have done together. Tedd's and Pat's adds took the song to an extremely higher level. Thank you very much for joining me guys !!

HILDE SVENDSRUD + HG SCHMITZ - FOR LOVERS ONLY, 2015 Hi everybody and welcome to 2016 ! This is our New Year's post. In the middle of September 2015 I offered a little birthday song to Mr. John Lunn. Because I missed the exact date of his birthday it was a belated gift. This song was a pure acoustic version. In the meantime Hilde and I have produced a band version of the tune with several other instruments and Hilde's vocals. We like to dedicate it to the honor of John again who we both appreciate as a very kind and honest fellow.

HG SCHMITZ - THERE'S BOUND TO BE SOMEONE, 2014 / Remixed and Remastered 2015 Around the Easter days of 2014 I finished my works to this song. When I posted it to Fandalism I dedicated it to ANNETTE & DAVE RODRIGUEZ, two beautiful souls who Hilde and I have taken to our hearts. Since a longer time I haven't listen to the tune and when I did a few days ago I thought it could need some little changes in the arrangement and a better sound quality. So I started to remix and remaster the whole stuff and this here is the final result. As Hilde and I did in 2014 so we want to do today. This song is and stays dedicated to Annette and Dave - for all times ! HG, 2014 - 12 / 2015 © 2014 HGS PRODUCTIONS

JAMES NOBLE + HG SCHMITZ - THE TRAIN HAS LEFT, 2015 This year my cohabitee Hilde Svendsrud visited me in Germany. She had been here from the 1st until the 10th of July 2015. When she left her hometown Lillehammer in Norway she wrote me an SMS that her train has just left the station. At the same time I rediscovered the instrumental tracks of the song James and I are posting today. They got originally recorded in 2010. I started working on mix and mastering immediately and spontaneously I called the tune "The Train Has Left". A few weeks ago I asked my dear friend JAMES NOBLE to join me on that project. He agreed to add his guitar parts to the tune and today we can proudly present the result of our common work. Let's rock Ladies and Gentlemen !

We both got born on the same day of the year and there is only one person on Fanda I know who got released to this world on the 30th of September. All best wishes from Hilde and myself. I`m in Norway in this moment and we both like to send you some good vibes ! A few days ago I posted a song called "Enough Is Enough". All the instrument tracks of that song got recorded in 2006. The tune I post today is from the same jam session I did with the recording help of my friend Philip in his rehearsal room back in those days. I played all intruments including the drums. Certainly I did some overdubs to the drums such as improving the crashes and adding some rolls but the main groove is exactly the one from 9 years ago. Please enjoy everybody !

HILDE SVENDSRUD + HG SCHMITZ - LADY AND MADONNA, 2015 In 2014 I recorded 8 instrumental reggae songs for an album called "WORDLESSLY". One of these songs is "LADY AND MADONNA" and the album title "WORDLESSLY" is no longer valid for the tune from now on. Months ago Hilde wrote some lyrics for the song and sent me her vocal tracks. Honestly, I have neglected to add them to the instrumental because I'd been very busy in working on many other projects - as always, lol. But now we have finished all the works of this production including the video Hilde has created. Hilde wrote a fictive story about two girls who stole a car, robbed a bank, met a police officer and a woman who predicted them to go straight to hell ! The girls followed her advice and went to that place called HELL where they met the same police officer again who woke them up with the words: Step Out Of That Car, Ladies !!!! Actually, LADY AND MADONNA only wanted to have some fun !! LOL !!!! And btw, LADY AND MADONNA are also the names of Hilde's two cats ! Special thanks are going to MARTHE FOSS from Norway. She is the car driver of the yellow Beetle you will see in the video and she's also one part of the acting couple of "LADY AND MADONNA". MARTHE ! Hilde and I are so grateful you took time for this ride. Thank you very much for your input. In the event it made this video possible. I would like to meet you in person one day when I'm over there in Norway. TUSEN TAKK !!

HILDE SVENDSRUD + HG SCHMITZ - BUTTERFLIES AND HONEYBEES, 2015 After a longer while Hilde and I recorded another reggae tune. We have done several ones before but it is some time ago we did our last one. We call this type of reggae "European Pop Reggae". Hilde is not able to sing the Patois as well as myself. So somehow we have to compensate this and Hilde is doing it with her sweet vocalized naivity she puts inside of music like this, instinctively. "BUTTERFLIES AND HONEYBEES" got written and recorded as an instrumental in the mid of 2014. Hilde gave this song the final touch with her lyrics and vocals.

HG SCHMITZ - FOR LOVERS ONLY (Acoustic Version), 2015 This is my belated birthday gift for MR. JOHN LUNN - a fine man who helped me so very much in a special period of my life. You may not really know how much you helped me in a time of precariousness and hope. But you did. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY from Hilde and I my dear friend !! Btw, the video I found after a long search on Vimeo. 28.000 citizens - a village compared to the town I live in. But it seems to be very nice there as the pictures showed me. Have a good time over there John. Hilde and I have you in our hearts. HG, 09 / 2015 © 2015 - HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - MY BABY'S HEART, 2015 Today is the birthday of MR. MARK HALL from Middlesborough, England and this song is my birthday gift for him. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARK , from Hilde and myself !! 1st let me say this: I found this little video I used for your birthday song on VIMEO. I had to modify it a bit for my purposes. There are not many possibilities my humble video editing software offers me. So please excuse the little faults at some points. It is more the idea that counts. Couldn't get it better than this. The original video had a length of 1.30 min only. I had to extend it to the size which was needed for the song. When I discovered it on Vimeo I thought it would be nice to use it for today's occasion. Hilde and I are very proud we can call you our friend. Please have a great day and celebrate. What has to be said else you will find in the video. Best wishes from Norway and Germany !! Hilde & HG, 09 / 2015 © 2015 - HGS PRODUCTIONS

ANNEMIEK BEEX + HG SCHMITZ - ODE TO ALL REFUGEES, 2015 A song written by ANNEMIEK BEEX. This is our tribute to all these poor human beings who are on their run to a better world. A flood of refugees from many nations of this world is arriving in Europe at the moment. These people left everything they once owned behind them. War in their home countries, political and religious persecution and the deep wish to offer their children a better life and education forced them to leave their homes. The European governments treat these people in a degrading way. Since more than a year Italy is the nation which has to accommodate thousands of refugees from all over the world and the rest of Europe is looking the other way. I raise my hat to the humanity Italy is showing to all these poor people. It is at the time for ALL EUROPEAN NATIONS to give their help and support immediately. I know that there is a huge problem of integration. There is not enough space for everybody who comes over the ocean to Germany, Austria, England, France and elsewhere. But try to imagine what these people want. They just wanna have a better living and a safer life. What would you do if you are living in blood and thunder ? I confess: I would try to go to a better place !! The pictures Annemiek has chosen for the video we all have seen on our TV screens. It is a shame that the so called civilized society allows conditions like that. When I saw them for the very first time in this compact form on the video I had some tears in my eyes and I am not an overly sentimental person, normally. Germany once started the 2nd world war. Many German people who didn't agree to the political system at that time fled to other countries and got shelter there. I think there are too many people - especially from the older generation of Germans - who forgot about this. I can talk for my own country only. The cover pic shows the truck the police discovered in Austria that carried 71 bodies inside - refugees who died on suffocation because ruthless thugs cooped these people inside of that car as if they were cattle.

HILDE SVENDSRUD + HG SCHMITZ - HIT THE MARK, 2015 Hi There Everybody ! This song and video was completely finished since a longer time. It is an emotional and touching rock ballad. Hilde and I have waited for the right time to post it. After many other projects which came first we both decided: the day for posting has come today ! When Hilde was here in Germany in past July we visited a friend of mine. His name is Philip. He bought an old farmer's house and lives there with his wife and kids. Hilde felt very well being at the German Countryside. She filmed the whole house and many other things around and created the video with this footage. The whole atmosphere at Philip's home reminded Hilde to the story of a Swedish movie called "Änglagård". The English title of that film is "Angel Farm". This movie is very famous in Norway and all over Scandinavia.

ANNEMIEK BEEX + HG SCHMITZ - BLOW THEM UP, 2015 What you will hear now is another mind-blowing composition by Annemiek Beex. It became a bit jazzy and we both love that. She asked me for some adds and I'm very glad she did. I abstained from playing any elaborate solo guitars cause I thought the song doesn't need it. The video is an ironical view on well known comic-strip figures and we hope you all don't take it too very serious.

HG SCHMITZ - WATERING THE DESERT, 2015 Hi There Everybody ! Today is the birthday of MR. SAM GOULD, better known as SAGOBA. To this occasion I want to send you a little birthday gift my friend. Dear Sam ! HAPPY BIRTHDAY and all good wishes from Hilde and I !! Since a few weeks I had been prepared for this day. I wanted to create a song for you but not any song. It should be something very special. So I began to work on some stuff I have recorded in 2013. The arrangement went through several turnarounds until I finally decided for this one you will hear now. There have been a few versions before but in this compilation as it is now the tune never existed. The cover pic I found on your Facebook page and the footage behind the music is showing the beautiful area of Florida where you use to live in. It is such a pity that the geographical distance between us is so very large. I wish Hilde and I could sit together with you and your wife, having fine conversations, drinking a glas of wine and making some music together. Please enjoy any single second of today. Kind and hearty greets from Norway and Germany !!! HG, 08 / 2015 © 2015 - HGS PRODUCTIONS

HG SCHMITZ - GITOP GENS DE GOWAMENT, 2015 Some reggae music with rock elements and an almost bluesy guitar solo. Recorded years ago, never published before. Completely new drum, percussion and bass programmings. All other tracks as keys, horns and guitars are the original recordings and programmings. I can't remember exactly when I started my works on that tune. Must have been around 2009 or 2010. As everybody knows: politicians are suffering under dementia after the election is over. They are all the same regardless of which nation they are coming from. But all democracies in this world have one weak point - YOUR VOTE ! Please enjoy the music !

HAPPY BIRTHDAY from the two of us, Chris !! The footage Hilde used for the video got recorded during one of my last visits in Norway. Nothing is happening by accident when Hilde is creating a vid. She planed my outfit and it took even an hour until my make up was ready. The result is a strange looking guy - just what the video needed. I'm always so very fascinated by her creativity. The whole package of lyrics, vocals and video editing fits perfectly to the music I wrote for her.

HILDE SVENDSRUD + HG SCHMITZ - GLORY DAYS, 2015 Actually Hilde and I didn't wanted to post this song so early. But yesterday, after we heard the sad news John Allen McKay has passed away, we decided to release it today. In the 70's, when I had been a hippie (lol), John Allen was fighting as a soldier for the US Army in Vietnam - one of the most dirtiest wars ever. He was always very friendly and kind to us. We have known him as a decent fellow. Rest In Peace John Allen. Sing and play your guitar with Janice, Jimmy, Freddy, John, Frank, Stevie Ray and all the other musicians who passed away way too early. We miss you. This is a ballad about the GLORY DAYS of our pasts. The good old times have been the best for almost everybody. When people are going to start thinking back to all the pleasant incedences of there lifes warm hearted feelings may come up. I'd been looking for some old photos of my youth and while doing that I remembered so many scenes, stories and happenings those pictures told. Some of them Hilde used for the video.

ANNEMIEK BEEX - KENT TAYLOR - HG SCHMITZ - THE CRAP SONG, 2015 My partners on this song - Annemiek and Kent - have posted this song yesterday already. I'm following today and I want to use the text of Kent's foreword because he is speaking in his mother tongue. His English is way better as mine. Hello friends ! Undoubtedly there are some very fine musicians and songwriters here on Fandalism. It's what has kept me visiting this site almost daily for the past 3 years. But like the rest of the world these days, Fanda has become increasingly tainted with large hungry egos that don't seem to understand the phenomenon that has taken place here in this musical sanctuary. These hungry egos are only concerned with the amount of props and comments they get. They will use your Fanda page as their personal billboard by posting a link to their site in an attempt to gain some of your following, but don't even have the courtesy to leave a comment. Then there are those whose music is anywhere from "below mediocre" to "absolutely horrible" who post comments on EVERYBODY'S page EVERYDAY hoping to get a "sympathetic comment out of the sheer numbers of Fandals they visit daily. There are also those who have no standard of excellence, and will post something from a cassette tape they found in their underwear drawer from 1974 (as if anyone has time to listen to 6 minutes of garbled noise!). Talking with some of my Fanda friends lately I've heard some horror stories about Fanda members posting songs of other Fanda members and adding their embellishments without permission, but one of the MOST bizarre stories I heard about was about a musician here on Fandalism (I won't mention names) who has actually created dozens of fraudulent Fanda pages of non-existent people (none of which have any songs posted on them) so he can send dozens of fake comments and props to himself and anyone he collaborates with!!! That's one voracious ego!!! And the crazy thing is that this particular musician is actually quite good! He doesn't need to do this!!! Well anyway, Annemiek Beex and I were venting with each other about all of this and our conversation spilled over to HG as we learned he had the same observations of Fandalism lately and we decided to write a song of protest to these ego-fueled posers. It's called "The Crap Song" In honor and respect to the musicians who have created music from their hearts here on Fanda we need to make these giant egos understand we value the phenomenon of true passion and excellence over the insecurity of mediocre minds. I welcome your comments. I don't expect they will all be good. But please, don't forget to prop!!..............Heh!! Heh!! Heh!! Song Title: The Crap Song Composers: Annemiek Beex, HG Schmitz and Kent Taylor Crappy Keyboards: Annemiek Beex Crappy Programming (horns, flutes and other crap) : HG Schmitz Crappy Vocals: Kent Taylor
