Waterski Song

The network of friends I ski with call ourselves the Bryant Lake Ski Team (BLST) - We're not a team, but it's the name of the lake we ski.

I challenged my song writing son to put something together for us before he headed off to college last fall.  A few weeks later he had a hit - at least with a very limited audience. I figured there are at least a few other skiers out there who would appreciate it. I mean we thought it was cool that our ski group had a name, logo and t-shirts...but do you know ANYONE who's ski team has a SONG? 

So as of this week, it's available for download on iTunes.

If you have a minute, take a listen to the BLST Anthem quite possibly the first-ever song about slalom water skiing and the passion of rising early. There is a very brief audiio preview as part of iTunes.

  iTunes: BLST Anthem 

Enjoy. Smile. Be inspired. 
Oh yeah.  I've posted this on a couple of other sites this week - sort of curious to see where it goes. I don't see anyone but Steve Jobs getting rich with the iTunes gig.   If I've abused rules of this forum and you'd like me to delete, that's cool.  Thanks.  - Brian Prentice

Re: Waterski Song

If you're on Facebook, check the Waterski Magazine page. I posted the widget with full audio preview there.
(it's free)

Waterski Magazine on FaceBook

The iTunes preview is limited, so here are the lyrics

BLST Anthem
lyrics

Yeah, we go to bed early and we set the alarm – for six a.m.
Throw the gear in the trunk then we’ll hop in the car.
One hand got your thermos, one hand on the wheel,
It’s a test of true men  - so are you fake or for real?

Mastercraft, Malibu, Hydrodyne, feelin’ fine – oooh.
Idle real slow past the dock then you gear up, don’t forget the trim up.
Gear it to the pocket. Ignition, then you rocket.

You got slime on your footy – fit it!
Jump in the water when your ready - yell hit it!
The water’s kinda chilly but it doesn’t really matter -
Long as the BLST will stick together.

BLST ski early, ski often.
Sure the sunrise but we ain’t afraid of nothin’
Y’all listen up, everybody know what I’m sayin’ -
“til the day we die we’ll keep on sprayin’
Bryant Lake, the lake. The lake, eat my wake.

Well the wind has past. Water’s like glass.
Take it to the lake ‘cause we’re friends of fast.
One skier, one driver, one spotter.
Rippin’ through the course, carvin’ turns in the water.

Like a hot knife through butter, yeah I’m a wake cutter.
So take it around the other side and do another.
So come on in, we buoy skimmin’ pickin’ up women,
Yeah Bryant Lake this is how we been livin’

We gettin’ ready to rumble and you might take a tumble.
So double – no – triple-knot your drawstring…
We don’t want anything slippin’ None of that skinny dippin’
Shorten the line as the pace continues to quicken.

Hey yo! You got a jet ski? Get that off of the lake!
You pullin’ tube rides? Get that off of the lake!
You tryin’ to wake board?  You tryin’ to wake board?!
You better empty the ballast and get that off of the lake!

BLST ski early, ski often.
Sure the sunrise but we ain’t afraid of nothin’
Y’all listen up, everyone know what I’m sayin’
“til the day we die we’ll keep on sprayin’
Bryant Lake, the lake, the lake, eat my wake.

Re: Waterski Song

I can "distribute" to other online "stores" but it costs add'l money.  Sorry Steve Jobs done you wrong, but right now that's all the further I'm into it.  Last time I checked, his stock was still moving up.  sad

Re: Waterski Song

Amazon has a great MP3 store. They are cheaper than itunes to buy from, I haven't looked into it but it seems like they should be affordable to sell through as well.

Pl0tz, get an external hard drive or other backup service! Kinda sucks itunes doesn't let you recover your music... i've lost stuff before as well...

Re: Waterski Song

Wow. 14 downloads in 3 months.
So far that is $9.80 of income off-setting the $12.00 initial outlay.

Re: Waterski Song

I'll ask if he has it available at any other music sites yet.

He and his best buddy just released an album on iTunes yesterday. Nothing more skiing related sad
