Saint Simon

I came up with an arrangement of Saint Simon by the Shins on the wurlitzer. It's in some sort of 3/4, 6/8, 12/8 I'm-not-sure-what waltz/not waltz time signature.

I love the sort of janky angularity of this. Is that a real Wurli? Sounds great.

Thanks, uncleozzy! Janky angularity was totally what I was going for.

And yes, it’s real. It has been inspiring me to work on playing piano.

About 10 years ago, my morning wake-up music mix featured quite a few Shins songs to get me through a long commute to my job. This title was one of them. Really enjoying your arrangement here. Love the warmth of the organ and the way you make the song your own.
