I like that. It creates a mind picture... and more. A vibe.

Here's one of mine. Not a new one, but one that I actually consider finished. http://glowpeople.bandcamp.com/track/its-about-time

Thank you. I actually did write something yesterday, but I hesitated and shared that link instead.

Always best to let them cool off for a while.

Although not necessarily as long as I did - This Wall is from 1987!

Three decades is probably about long enough!!

Mine keep getting tweaked and verses reordered, until they've been committed to... I was gonna say tape, but... er, recorded.

And, as I hate the sound of my own voice, i get others to record them when I do want to include them in music. In that instance I was working with my friend Debz, who has a lovely voice and regional accent. My brother is a film and TV actor, who occasionally does a bit. he can do different voices and accents - but, I've also a few other professionals on my little list who throw me favours, including a delightful American chum called 'Suzette' who did this: http://glowpeople.bandcamp.com/track/din

I think one of the reasons we dislike recordings of our own voice is that, when speaking, we feel the sensation of the sound we're making, and experience the lower tones more intensely. The recorded version might well be just how others hear us, but it's a shock to the speaker.

Off to play that clip, now.
