1. Virtual Love

From the recording Virtual Love

This song is on my first CD, “Silicon Cowboy.” Co-writer, David Pace, and I were intrigued by the early efforts of internet enterprises to popularize online relationships and virtual dating. The practice has grown and is big business, but this song still tells the story. Creating a persona that may be a little better looking, a bit more interesting, and a lot more intriguing than you really are is the goal for many people trying to attract others. In this song you are “the chat room playboy of the internet,” and you live in “the laptop of luxury.” Imagine having Tom Cruise’s eyes and Elvis’s thighs. It doesn’t get any better than that.
