Hmmm, didn’t expect that....
So it’s been 3 weeks since my last post. I was distracted by other things for two of them and then tackled ‘As the World Burns’ for the other.
I’ve had the chorus for this song in my head for years and spent 4 days producing the orchestral arrangement of it exactly as I had imagined it. I also quickly worked up a verse and pre-chorus section, which, in my mind, was just the bit that lead to the really great chorus.
It’s huge! It’s exactly as I planned it, and it sounds great!
Only one problem – I don’t like it!
I prefer the verse and pre-chorus. The part I hadn’t planned sounds way better to me and doesn’t fit with the overly dramatic filmic approach I went for with the chorus.
As happens with these things, this unexpected ‘disaster’ has lead to an unforeseen windfall.
The verse and pre-chorus just has a great feel to it. I can’t stop listening to it. It’s very moody and is the kind of thing that will work really well live.
So, now I’m off on a different direction with ‘As the World Burns’. I have no idea how it will end up, but that’s the fun part.
I’ll let you know how it goes!
