monday song #87: nocturne




this is one of the prettier songs i’ve written. as with many of the previous posts, it’s guitar, plus harmony vocal; tunes for the latest paul n linda record.

i pictured the atmosphere of romantic poet like edgar allan poe: a moonlit cemetery looking down on the ocean.

it took me forever to figure out the harmony, until i came across the simon and garfunkel style, like an echo, or a conversation. i even moved some words around so the responses would make sense.

    Eagerly awaiting Paul and Linda! I know KB isn’t much of a Simon and Garfunkel fan, but I am. I love the call and response, and the simple, spare guitar. Lovely.
