What’s the world’s first phone with a piano app?
Posted On July 19, 2021
Happy birthday, brother.
You’ve been living a dream.
Happy birthday, piano.
I’ve been watching a movie and this morning I got a message saying my birthday was coming up.
It was a little late to turn on the music, so I put the phone down and looked at the calendar.
It was June 5, 2015.
The calendar said it was 5 p.m.
My phone’s not supposed to ring.
I’m a little surprised.
I mean, I was expecting a text message.
But then I opened my calendar.
It had a photo of my wife.
And there were a couple of songs I’d written for her, and the phone was ringing.
I was like, I can’t stop this!
I had to go downstairs and get the phone and play.
I had a little crush on the phone.
So I started playing.
I played all of the songs on my phone, but I had no idea what they were.
And then I played one that was on the Internet.
It sounded like I was on a music video.
I thought, Oh my God.
That’s really great.
I didn’t know what the hell that was.
But I was in the middle of a movie, and I just couldn’t stop.
So the phone rang.
A woman said, “I’m just waiting for you to come home.
I’ll see you later.”
So I got out of the car and I walked down the street.
I said, I’m just playing piano.
And she said, Can I come out?
I said no.
I’ve been in this studio with you for so long.
And I’ve heard your songs, so you must know me.
I just thought you might want to come out.
She was a lovely lady.
I told her about my phone and I said: “I’ll come back.
I love you.”
And she came out, got a little nervous, but she was a wonderful lady.
We talked about what we had done, what it was like to be together and I told my mother about my birthday.
And my mom said, You must have been a little worried about what it would be like to have to say goodbye to someone.
And so she went over to the piano and started playing and it was wonderful.
I’d never been in such a wonderful place to play.
And it just felt like we were in a dream, and it just made me smile.
And then she got back in the car.
I got to the phone, and my phone rang again.
She said, Is there anyone in the world that would like to come and see me?
And I said yes.
That’s when I realized I had been having this dream.
And at that point I thought about the music.
At that moment I didn�t have a piano.
So my mother took the phone from me, put it down and said, Let’s play some piano.
She put the microphone on the piano.
That was the first time I saw the piano in my life.
I remember playing with my hands.
So it was the most exciting thing that ever happened to me.
So when she finished, I said to myself, I’ll never get a phone.
But that was the start of my musical career.
So now I’m doing it all over again.
