I am really wrestling with this latest song.
I’m determined to cram it into 3/4 time, but it’s like trying to force a sleeping bag into a tube sock. It’s an ugly struggle and no matter how I slice it, there’s always a loose end striking out somewhere.
I’m sure I can get the tune to gallop along obediently, but the lyric marches to its own beat and just won’t play ball.
I’m tripping over my own poetic feet and may just have to accept it and fall back to standard time. After all, iamb what I am.
How many can YOU find?
