Bigelf Week: Day 3
Damon: One night after being out late I came home and sat down at the piano, I closed my eyes, took a deep breath and said..."There's no use looking down..." almost the whole song came out on that first attempt. Of course not every word, but close.. the verse, chorus and bride chords. I don't really have a formula for songwriting but this doesn't happen every day. When we added the Mellotron choir(male, female, solo female & boys) to the intro, it captured the complete essence of the lyrics for me. I still get chills when it comes in, love it.
Ace: This is one of my personal favorites on the album. Simple but effective, very melodic, and a nice breather between the heavy rockers on the record. We had a string quartet play on this one, it really added some cool elements to the arrangements and the overall soundscape. This one's about jumping out of an airplane without a parachute... voluntarily.
