About

It's all about the song otherwise your just a sexy mouthpiece crooning sweet nothings into a £2,000 microphone.

    Another 'interesting' arrangement. I think it would be stronger as an ABABC? or AABA. The A sections are as strong melodically as the B section but as the listener is waiting so long, there's a risk you may loose them. Otherwise could you vamp up the melody in the A section to create a stronger melody.

    Could the chordal rhythm be altered in either the verse or the chorus to help define one from the other?

    The harmonies remind me of Elliot Smith. I like the lyrical repetitions and there's a lot of Beatles-esque tones and reverbs in here, love it

    @Robin Estes: Thanks Robin. Even the great 'nonsense' lyricists like Dylan, Waits & Mitchell all have a solid basis for their songs and a sense of narrative which maybe harder to follow than the usual but the results are some powerful imagery. Thanks again

    I love the line 'have a bite of the moon'. You should get yourself a grand piano, something that can match up to your amazing voice.
