about

‘A Bigger Splash’

A driving surf style hard twanging affair inspired by a couples shared love of that most iconic image with the tell-tale refrain… ‘David Hockney in 67 says he died he died and went to heaven, all his paintings live on forever, but this was the one keeping us together’

lyrics

A swimming pool in California so blue
There’s Neil and Joni too

A bigger splash

We framed the poster put it on the wall
Back from San Francisco in the fall

A bigger splash

The Grateful Dead are tripping in heaven
They turn their amps way up to eleven
Come on over if you want to take a swim
You know I like to watch you glide
Gracefully in the water and make a bigger splash

A bigger splash

Years roll by the edges frayed
Sunlight discolored the frame

A bigger splash

So, we took it down to get it all cleaned up
Not sure what happened to it after that

Mines a different kind of heaven
Football in the park walking by the Severn
Come on over if you want to
Hang out with the kids do what it is you need to
There’s a lovely park here too

I’d like to think you put the poster back, after I left
On the wall in its rightful place

A bigger splash

And every once in a while, when you walk past
It puts a smile upon your face

A bigger splash

David Hockney in 67 says he died, he died and went heaven
All those paintings live on forever, but this was the one keeping us together
Golden Gate fold sacred hill side Amoeba Records before the greats died
Come on over if you want to take a swim you know you know I like to watch you dive gracefully into the water

And make a bigger splash

A bigger splash
