In the summer of 1999 I worked as a football (soccer) instructor at Camp Greenbrier for Boys in Alderson, West Virginia. One night during House Party (Family Camp), Virginia Beach based singer/songwriter David Carter performed a selection of cover versions (including Crash into Me by Dave Matthews and Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison) and some of his own compositions. I remember the campfire atmosphere and the performance of a David Carter original called ‘Twister in the Nude’. I heard that song only once in fifteen years (the night it was performed) yet I was still able to hum the chorus and recall some of the lyrics before recently finding a recording of the song on YouTube. I appreciate songwriting that grabs the listener’s attention and refuses to relinquish it.
