about

The Old Married Couple presents 'Welcome to the Music Hall'

Recorded in Portland Oregon with producer Adam Selzer (M. Ward, She & Him, Darren Hanlon), 'Welcome to the Music Hall' introduces the faces of new vintage with a collection of songs with distinctive Dixieland/Ragtime sounds with a vaudevillian twist that would be at home as much in the Music Halls of the 19th century as they are in the 21st century.

“If you didn’t know any better, you may think The Old Married Couple were plucked from the 1920s Jazz/Vaudeville crowd, transported to the 1960s Folk/Country/Blues scene and finally made their way to the early 21st Century Indie Music arena. Perhaps they have settled down somewhere within the same city limits as Pokey Lafarge and The Ditty Bops while listening to Cole Porter on the gramophone.” – Adam Selzer

Track Name: Me to You
You to me are like popping candy to a little boy
You to me are a boy named Andy if I was a talking toy
You're the beat
And you're the street
The song that I play on repeat
And if all of this is true from me to you

Me to you, it's like we're glued cause I can't get away
This attachment, like a magnet, holds me every single day
You're the force that keeps me grounded
Gravity that I'm glad I found
And if all of this is true from me to you

Because there is no sound or any word I've found
That summarises what you mean to me
We don't need more than the same three chords
A new tone colour playing melody

Can you see through my metaphors at what I'm trying to say?
You're lots of things, you're queens to kings
Every night and every day
You're the wordplay
You're the pun
I called you and I hope you come
And if all of this is true from me to you
Track Name: Hold me
Hold me my pretty baby
I don't know what the future holds but I'll be holding you
We won't be lonely, my one and only
Just hold me just like I'm holding you

Some people try to plan a life with a wife and a happy home
With misty eyes, they're so surprised when they end up all alone
I don't fear cause you are here and that's all I need to know
If you're still there baby I don't care, we can take this future anywhere

I'd like to be an astronaut so I can fly you to the moon
But there's a good chance we could waste our lives away in the the living room
And If we do, I promise you, until the chairs give out
I'll sit with you and listen to all of the things that you're talking about

And the photos that we shoot will show the greys but it suits you
and the way that you like won't be the same as it used to
I don't need a crystal ball to show
I don't think I really need to know
Track Name: Stuck with Me
You already told me that you would be my wife
So you're stuck with me for life
I hope that you thought this through
Because I know you're messy
I know you're moody
We like some pretty stupid movies
and I like to watch them late at night with you

But you're kind of a bitch
and You're a little bit of a jerk
But when we're together we've got a way of making it work
You can take everything that people always knew to be true
They're not about me and they're not about you
Together, we're exceptional

If it feels this good it's probably too good to be true
It doesn't apply to you, It doesn't apply to you
Love can only feel this exciting when it's new
That doesn't apply to you, It doesn't apply to you

The first time I saw you, I thought you looked a little bit weird
Purple hair and your little beard
'He looks different', I thought to myself
Then you were informed that I was a weirdo
Different from some but you were perfect for me and I can't see my life without you there
Track Name: You're My
I don't need to find out where you have been
because you're always with me
I don't worry about a single thing
Cause you're looking after me

If I don't say it right now, I know I'll say it sometime
I don't know what the thing I want to call you is, but I know you are mine

You're My
Ba Ba Ba Bada
Ba Ba Ba Bada
Ba Ba Ba Bada
Bup badada Bup Bup
You're my
Ba Ba Ba Bada
Ba Ba Ba Bada
Ba Ba Ba Bada

You gave me the pieces I didn't know that I was missing
I don't need to shout a single thing cause I know you are listening
