Amsterdam Song Part 2 – The Remix [VIDEO]
This might take some explaining. I'll try to be brief, although I rarely succeed at that.
OK, here's the backstory. I had paid tribute to Amsterdam a while ago for Your Town Thursday (here's the link if you want to hear the original). I had put out the call for information like I always do, on Facebook, and I got some slightly negative comments, mostly regarding the financial strife the town was going through. My policy is not to play "editor" here. Whatever facts I get, I try to incorporate (within reason).
Fast forward to last week when we revisited Amsterdam on the Small Town Tour. I decided to sing the parody again, warts and all. It got a lukewarm reception at the Olympic Diner and I felt bad about it. As a payback, I made the executive decision to try to rewrite it right there - soliciting new facts from the patrons who came in. Here was the result, for better or worse. The lyrics are below the video.
