That's Enough

Recorded in November, after a summer reading Peter Guralnick's awesome two-part biography, Last Train to Memphis and Careless Love.

Sweet. Beautifully relaxed lilt of a waltz. That's a feel we don't get very often these days. Great backing harmony vox, too. Well done, chococat.

Oh, and is that a button accordion? Whatever it is, sounds great: a wonderful addition to the tune.

(When I first saw the song title on my sidebar notifications, I wondered if maybe you were posting a Ray Charles cover.)

It's a melodica!
Thanks, flapjax.

This was a songfight entry wasn't it? I remember listening to it at the back end of last year. Still sounds lovely. The stops and the very subtle major-minor chord change are great, and the swung 6/8 feel is terrifc - very subtle.

I assumed this was about Michael Jackson when I first heard it -- I think it was not long after he died.

Also - the melodica - I'm so shit at harmonica that I just put in an order for one too.

Loving this. And your inspiration. Two of my favourite books. Really like the melodica.
