Jason Thompson Shares Lyrics To His Song Performed On Wednesday's GH: Sailor Short On Wind!



If you caught Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, the show opened up with a melancholy Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) strumming his birthday gift  …  an acoustic guitar.

The gift was given to him by his current lady love, Sam (Kelly Monaco).  Earlier, Sam turned down Patrick’s marriage proposal saying she is not ready quite yet and that the timing was bad.   Sam related she had to through the next few days, because it would have been her and Jason’s (Billy Miller) fourth wedding anniversary.  So with that, Patrick wrote a new song on his brand new guitar, while Sam was remembering Jason as she went through a box of their shared belonging.

As Patrick sang the song, which contained the lyrics: “I can’t tell you what hurt first.  The regret of my question, or the truth in your words.  Love has shown me there’s always an open door.  So be careful what you wish for, ” Sam overheard the good doc singing it, and noted its content.  The tune was also played over the action of other scenes at the beginning of the episode.

Many fans took to social media since the episode aired asking Jason Thompson whether or not he penned the tune that he sang? And the answer was a resounding, “Yes” as he clarified on Twitter.   Today, Jason posted the lyrics to the song which is entitled “Sailor Short on Wind”.

So, what did you think of the song and it’s lyrics? Did you enjoy seeing Jason sing on GH again? Do you think Patrick should be more upset with Sam turning down his marriage proposal?  Share your thoughts below!

    The song is okay but Jason isn’t much of a singer and needs to stick to acting.

      I actually like the intonation of his voice. He is better than a lot of bellyachers out there who pose as singers. And, I do love his hair.

    The song was a nice touch and made for an effective opening. I think Patrick’s reaction has been appropriate and, happily, has not been written in a cliched way. Jason Thompson is so good in the role – really natural and completely believable.

      Only if they have a new actress who can make a commitment to GH. Get tried of Kim coming and going because of her other career ambitions.

        As much as I love KM – would have to agree with you on that one!

    Jason Thompson is awesome. I really liked his singing/his song.
    Sam & Jason are horrible together / aweful.
    They are total bore and I had need to FF them, and I never FF …lol

    (also- Patrick is quite tall, Sam not much taller than his daughter Emma/heels off..
    They look creepy together, yah know what I mean) ufta!

      Great stuff, su0000! I may not always agree with you — this time I do — but you are always entertaining, and your enthusiasm is unparalleled! Best to you!

    The way he’s been acting lately, when I saw him with the guitar I expected to hear Dr Drake sing,”I am Woman” by Helen Reddy.
    All kidding aside, the song was very nice.

    • Timmm

      September 25, 2015 at 10:02 am

      I hope Billy Miller can sing!

      • Sly

        September 25, 2015 at 11:33 am

        I hope so too.

    • Jamesj75

      Good one, Harry! With it being GH, we know it wouldn’t be another Reddy hit, “Peaceful.”

    Since we’re getting to know who Jake is very soon it’s funny how Sam can’t commit to Patrick. I’m guessing she’s going to find that out real soon too.
    I don’t like when actors write and sing on their soaps.
    Frisco however was so different.

    • Ces

      Ooooh Frisco can sing anytime!!!

      • Timmm

        Noah #1 and Frisco #2!

    Wow, terrific lyrics! Funny, Shay and I were just talking about the lack of A song on a soap like they used to do on soaps in the 80’s. [“Lady of my Heart”, ode to Felicia from Frisco.] Its nice to see and I couldnt help but see Dr. Noah Drake in that scene. Patrick and Noah really could pass for father and son and I’d love to see them perform together. Some of the fans complain about the mob element and want the hospital in GH to return. Well, hire Dr. Drake as Chief of Staff.

    The lyrics of “Sailor Short on Wind” are profound & poetic.
    J.T. did a really beautiful job on the song.
    I enjoyed his sincere performance. The song suites mood & atmosphere of
    what was going on between Sam & Patrick.
    Sam, as always looked beautiful & compassionate.
    I love the dynamic between these two engrossing characters.
    (Don’t get how anyone would call them boring!
    I’ll miss Samtrick with J.T. & K.M. When they’re over!)

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.


Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.


Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
