Novadic Song in 7+ Parts
Please find attached this novadic song for voice, guitar, subway train, whistle, siren, drunk girls, wind, silence, etc. Free to download here; encouraged to play in any order:
This was recorded from 2:30-3:40am on a pocket-sized hotness while finding my way from a shabbat dinner in Queens to a hot couch in Harlem, using a borrowed guitar, stealing melodies from singers I love (e.g. Calamity & the Owl) and words from the subway walls (do not pull the emergency cord, Emergency Workers…).
Wacky guitar…wacky guitar…oh no…oh no ooOOooOOooooo…and I wonder why the song is outside…We’ve got nothing left to do but play music on an empty subway platform…and o wonder why, the rails are electrified, why the floors all have their lights on (2x)…inside our minds, inside the heart, inside the hope of being One…and don’t you wonder why the stars all healed inside, its not like were the last ones to consider the rain upon the sun…A Pyramid of muskets; a Teepee of guns…And don’t you wonder why the lights are left on all night long…[whistles like clock chimes finding their own time]…and I wonder why, and I wonder why, and I wonder why, this song is outside. Ohhhhhhh ohhhh ooOOOooooooOOoo…
