Dean Madonia: VIDEO LINKS


"Shadow To Shadow" is the title track to my 29 song Rock Opera/concept CD based on Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein."
Silence is not always golden. Here is "Fool's Gold" from "S2S"
This song is from a side project I did with Greg Curvey. Greg sang and played guitar and drums. I sang backups and played bas and keys. This song was in the movie "The Stream."
LYRIC VIDEO for "When He Plays His Guitar."
From "S2S"
Little Boy Blue OFFICIAL
From my country CD "Country and Midwestern." I wrote this for my beautiful son, Wolfgang. He was starting to lock the door so I couldn't leave.

Let's Dance (David Bowie)
Here is a video I made of David Bowie's "Let's Dance." I worked myself into a deep funk on the day he died and started playing the piano. This was shot live with a zoom video recorder.
Walking in Memphis
I had just discovered that I could record live with my MacBook Pro built-in camera and mic, so I opened up the laptop, set it on my piano and did "Walking In Memphis." Not the best version, but a great crowd!
Crimson Courtiers Highlights - Elkhart, IN
This is a tribute band I put together for a prog festival after Greg Lake and John Wetton passed away.
Parade - Kevin Gilbert cover
I had just learned this song (not exactly correct) and wanted to try out my new Zoom video camera. Live, straight into the camera. Warts and all.


All For My Calliope - LYRIC VIDEO
A lyric video for my new song "All For My Calliope" which is the working title track for my upcoming CD
This is an angry Trump rant. If you are a fan of Trump, you would probably not like me very much. Though you might still enjoy my music. I won't blame you if you don't listen. I'm a man of principles myself, so I understand. Well. There go half of my fans? I doubt it. Most of the people who like my music, like the message. I'm a liberal, left-over hippy. This song was recorded immediately after the first "Muslim Ban." I played all of the instruments and it shows (not in a good way)! I am considering a rewrite with a more positive message and including it on my new CD.
Somewhere Far Away
This is just a random song I came up with. There is a video, but no lyrics. I may include this sometime on a new CD.
Why Do You Hate the Way I Love
I was scheduled to perform for WIDR Kalamazoo and I wanted to try out this new song I had just finished. This one may be on the New CD.
Be the King Again
I wrote this song with my friend Brian Gaskill. Brian is a famous soap opera actor and also a poet. He came up with this idea and I made it into a song. Unreleased

Who Doesn't Love A Christmas Song? LYRIC VIDEO
"WHO DOESN'T LOVE A CHRISTMAS SONG?" Good question. I wrote this when I was in Nashville, TN. I was traveling weekly then and I saw and talked to a lot of servicemen and women heading to or from the Middle East. I met people from all walks of life. I had this idea after talking to a doctor who was working through Christmas at the hospital.
