ok, so i’ve been working on this beautiful track andy sent me and it’s been kicking my ass — not because i don’t have any ideas for it but because i have too many. before i hunker down and write the lyrics i want to finalize the melody. after a week of work on it i had four (count ‘em) complete melodies to the song, and i haven’t been able to decide which one to pursue. i’ve been working on a different track, trying to get some space from it, but while i do i thought i thought i’d shoot it out to you all to and you can let me know what you think.
parameters: ok, i’ve never done anything like this before. it’s freaky to have you hear the very much work-in-progress thing in this stage. please remember:
1. nothing about this track is final, not the piano or vocal or especially…
2. the lyrics are purely mock-up. not one single word may survive to the final version. your job is to listen to the melodic line of the voice without listening to the lame-stream-of-consciousness-
3. the main thing we’re listening to here. the verses of each version are different. the choruses of 2, 3 & 4 are the same (mostly).
4. ok, go to town and please let me know what you think on facebook.
