Bill O'Hanlon's music

A number of people have suggested that I put my songs online. I have finally learned how to create my own websites and therefore can do this myself. Some of them are demos and some are more finished tracks.

You can download these files. They are MP3s and you can burn them onto CDs, listen to them on your computer using any program you have on there that plays MP3s, or you can transfer them to your MP3 player or iPod.

I own the copyright and give you permission to share these files as long as you do not use them for commercial (money-making) purposes without explicit permission from me.

The Lonely One was mainly written in 1978 and the bridge was added in 1993. My younger brother once asked me to "play that John Lennon song." I was confused. Which one, I asked. "The Lonely One," he said. I replied that I had written it and he didn't believe me. he was certain it was a John Lennon song. One of the best compliments I ever received. Hope you like it.

The Lonely One

Friends With You was written in 1978 as well. I met a person and became fast friends. I like the little jazzy riff with the major seventh chords.

Friends With You

Power was initially written in 1975 and the bridge was added in the mid-nineties, influenced by one of my favorite singer-songwriters, Aimee Mann.


Trance Plants is a song written about one of my main influences, the late psychiatrist and hypnotherapist, Milton H. Erickson. I wished I could have talked to him about my work and my understanding of his work after I developed it after his death.


More to come. Thanks for listening.
