Today’s Work

Working on editing the lyrics… now that I have better idea of how the song fits together from a tonic perspective….

However… telling the story… like I want to tell it… COMPLETELY… looks like it turns the tune into a MONSTER…. Similar to Steppenwolf’s song Monster… and other EPIC Rock Ballads… from the Prog Rock era….

Only… Elvis has left the building… and he took long songs with him….

Last NEW long song I heard was by… Eric Church…. He did a rather classic concept album… that included a classic group of connected songs… expounding… and expanding on a story… in long song form….

So… if the Intro and Verse (technically 1 & 2, I suppose) come in at around 2:15… then adding Pre-chorus/Chorses… and a couple of more Verses… and a Bridge… and maybe a bit of a Finale/Outro… we’re suddenly sitting at 6 minutes…. Or… more like 8…. Which way… WAY… over the 3 minutes allowed for a radio single….

Oh, well!

Gues I’ll work on finishing it….

Then I can get to work ripping it apart… AGAIN!!!
