Party Animal – The Song (words and music by Kathy Freeman)

Over the years playing in bands I’ve come across  a few folk who’ve sipped, snorted or gulped a wee bit too much from the rock goblet. Not a problem till their business became my business and I couldn’t extricate myself  ….this song was written in not such fond memory of those times.

“…You’re a party animal and you always will be – You don’t look for trouble but it always finds you”  Do you know this person?

“…It’s a different story – it’s the same old song”  Someone told you a few stories. In which the details are different but the result is the same. The narrator is having a ball. The listener gets shafted.

“…..You’re a party animal. You’re a party vegetable.” Party boy just made the transition to horizontal.

“…And there are no secrets around this scene. Cause wherever you go – someone’s been.” He’s yours, he’s mine, he’s someone else’s too

The Birdhouse, Paris 1988 (Photo featured in the video It’s My Life)

I skipped red-eye retouch on this photo, because his eyes probably WERE that colour

As I recall the big guy was “security” and hanging around the dressing room. For some reason he was bugging me and I gave him short shrift. He seized the opportunity later – halfway through the set – to crack my British reserve by sticking his massive head unceremoniously between my legs. Then he stood up so I was obliged to play while sitting on his shoulders. But as you can see I was neither stirred nor shaken….and the band played on.

It’s My Life ….and if I want to prance around on video in a PVC catsuit at my age, then so be it.

It’s YOUR life.…unless you’re a Buddhist it may be the only one you’ll get….go for it!

It’s My Life is a raw video collage of action and photos. The moving footage – me now. The…
