A Word to the Weird
The words 'strange' or 'weird' may come to mind due to the dissonance of some of the notes and chords in this song You might assume then, that a person who is rather weird (in a good way) might like this tune. So in a sense, this song is a 'Word to the Weird'. Don't get me wrong, it's a good off/jazz song.
Gavotte and Hornet Hoedown
The gavotte is one of the dances I see done in 17th century European palaces, where the ladies are frilly, with boobs spilling out and the gentlemen are bowing in boots. The rhythm and timing of this song strongly reminds me of the gavotte, while the notes themselves and especially their tones, give me a picture of none other than a regiment of hornets backing and bowing, doing an old-fashioned barndance hoedown. Yes, it is a humorous song. :)
A Circle, We
We all stand in the circle of man, holding hands, whether we all know it yet or not.
Girl on a Rubber Band
There is a certain 'snapback' to this song. In a balanced, equal and healthy relationship, it seems to me that the two partners have each other on a string, or even a rubber band. It is not a limiting thing, not a constrictor, but an asset. I snap back to you from times that my focus is somewhere other than you. You snap back to me when Iíve goofed and you forgive me. The strength of our relationship makes this snap a possibility. We don't have to wait for the other's affection, it is there immediately, constantly, upon request.
I Love You Even Though
This song is written in conjunction with another short piece called "...Sometimes You Tick Me Off". It is a comment on those times when the one we love makes us mad, but still we don't stop loving them. I love this tune. The use of wah-wah adds a lot to the expression and tenderness.
