Every Fall I seem to compose a melancholy song. This year is no exception. Hope you enjoy.

Best, John

Well done. Sounds more interesting than much of the material I've heard coming from Broadway these days. Also, nice job with the (digital) orchestration.


Love that #11!

Johnny,

When I click on the site, I'm not getting anything!

Guess I'll try again later!

Johnny,

Okay, got it to play this time!

A couple of suggestions;

1. In the middle of the piece somewhere, give the singing a break and just play the piano. This way it's like taking a breath and gives a moment to reflect and gives us time to hear the beautiful piano arrangements.

2. Play on a real piano! That keyboard is a bit stark! And gives me a jolt and takes away from the calmness of the piece.

Just my 2 suggestions.

Nice song!

Thanks for your comments Diane.

There is a break in the vocal after the first chorus. The piano plays alone for four measures.

Normally publishers don't want long instrumental parts in songs. If any, only very short ones.

Thanks again for listening.

Best, John

A piano solo for this composition and a Boston Pops winner, many violins and symphonic. The melody is so soulful and can carry itself without a vocal at all. Yesterday by the Beatles is an example ...I never want to hear the words I just want the music. Your voice is very excellent also, you have a Michael Feinstein type of voice. Thank you for sharing with us. Sandy B

Thanks Sandy. Maybe I will make a piano solo (with strings) out of it also.

That's Erik blessing us with his singing. He's sang about a dozen of our songs.

Best, John
