One two three one two one two three one two…

One two three one two one two three one two…

This is the first song I’ve ever done in 5/8 time… it nearly killed me! Well, I suppose it was that rabid dolphin that nearly killed me but… this was difficult… that’s the point.  If you don’t know what that means just try tapping your foot to this song… it’s doesn’t come as naturally as 4/4 or 3/8. I was able to figure out a decent vocal melody to go over the odd timing… it deals with the three blind mice rhyme… wow… I tell you what, that butchers wife…she had some vengeance in her.  However, since time is only a mere abstraction of our boredom and movement then 5/8 means that we’re just breaking up this boredom and movement into an oddly numbered partition of clicks.  Just like pirates did with their gunpowder… you know?  Maybe not…
On this song I play elec guitar, drums, accordion, bass, glockenspiel and hand percusions.
