I have toppled all the towers (You have trampled all the flowers)

A little ditty about a son confronting his father the king.

I ended up getting a refrain in my head and it wouldn't go away until I recorded this. The end result, which includes software harpsichords, pitch-shifted vocals, mellotron sounds, cuban guitar and motown-style drums, sounds a little like a combination of the baroque pop of the Left Banke and the plants vs. zombies soundtrack.

Sometimes the idea steers you, not the other way around. The whole process made me laugh.

Something great about that titular line, wish I had come up with it. Love the cuban guitar interlude.
