^Indeed, but the sparse piano-and-drums arrangement reminds me of something else... not sure what, but I like it. Nice Free As A Bird name-check too!

Anyway, it's very nice and dark and I like it... good job john-lennon-salute_gif

I'm trying (not very hard) to set Shakespeare's Sonnet 141 to music for a sonnet reading I'm doing on Monday... a-hard-days-night-paul-7 I'm thinking something in the minor key, maybe a Greensleeves kind of thing.

I mentioned about a week ago that I was writing a song about a BBer - that BBer was @50yearslate and her synesthesia. So I wrote a song called Synesthesia. 

Normally I'd post my new song in a PM to those who expressed interest but I figured because it's about a BBer I'd post it on the forum.

Tell Me What You See Think! Any feedback - positive/negative - welcome!

Holey, this has to be my favourite and the best song you've done so far! paul-mccartney-thumb_gifThe production skills are crazily good and there's an evident Rubber Soul /Revolver era influence to it. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10 Can we expect more songs in this style? (even for our project?) ahdn_george_01

Have I mentioned before that you remind me of Syd Barrett? I'll say it again -- that one was especially Barrett-ish, particularly reminiscent of 'Dominoes'.

I've heard rumours that Syd had synesthesia, so it's rather fitting.

Wow I can really see the similarity between Dominoes and my song! Even the reverse guitar... 

I can see the similarity between our voices too - the next song I do will have to be a really loud, screamy, Lennon-esque vocal then - just to be contrary.a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Apparently he did experience Synesthesia @Beatlebug  - according to his brother's obituary: http://www.sydbarrett.net/subpages/articles/ordiinary_brother.htm
