Well. Body has decided that now is the best time to have a chest/sinus/throat infection. So in case you were wondering why Song Numero 1 was so breathy, this is probably the reason. I mean, I can’t be 100% sure, but the evidence is certainly pointing that way.
Today and yesterday I learned a few things:
1: If I want to be a musician, I will have to live…
a) Not under a flight path
b) Not next to neighbours with a strange LOVE of construction
2: Don’t leave the condenser mic on top of the piano because it WILL fall down and give me a heart attack.
3: I’m going to have to work harder at writing non minor melodies. I just don’t know how to do this. Maybe I should collaborate with someone happy.
So I didn’t write anything yesterday because I was in bed except for when I had to teach. I’ve nearly finished the entire series Gavin and Stacey. It’s amazing. I love it. This means I’m one song behind. When I feel better I’m going to have to catch up.
Okay, so here’s today’s offering. Please excuse my DISGUSTING voice and any ambient noise such as men with electric saws outside. It’s not very finished, it’s more of an idea that I’ve recorded.

When you go your mind will open
Letting in all sorts of crazy
Things but will you let them win?
Shoeless art, attack the heart and
Deconstruct what already does
not make any sense and put your
Hand up so that you can gain a
Feeling that you know what’s going
On the inside you feel so bewildered
Spoons and cows and toes and
