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.
