A Cubist, Existentialist ditty inspired by the wonderful work of Gertrude Stein.
I hope it’s not too scary!
All comments most welcome…..
Here’s the lyrics:

Once upon a time the world was round and you could go on it around and around. Everywhere there was somewhere and everywhere there they were men women children dogs cows wild pigs little rabbits cats lizards and animals. That was the way it was. And everybody dogs cats sheep rabbits and lizards and children all wanted to tell everybody all about it and they wanted to tell all about themselves. And then there was Rose. Rose was her name and would she have been Rose if her name had not been Rose. She used to think and then she used to think again. Would she have been Rose if her name……

If I could cry without ever seeing you
If I could die without ever seeing you
If I could cry without ever being you
If I could die without ever being you I would Rose

……had not been Rose and would she have been Rose if she had been a twin. Rose was her name all the same and her father's name was Bob and her mother's name was Kate and her uncle's name was William and her aunt's name was Gloria and her grandmother's name was Lucy. They all had names and her name was Rose.

If I could cry without ever seeing you I would Rose.

Loved it - enjoyed the harmonies - wish i had the courage to 'sing' like that !!
This is just simply another very different sound that approaches masterpiece levels!
Don't stop -
Regards

Hey guys thanks for those comments. As a tune it's a little over the top - trying to stay Cubist with the vocals is a little odd to say the least! But I'm glad you enjoyed it....it was very hurriedly put together (as usual), but Lili and I had great fun doing it.

Inspired by a genius (Gertrude) who was inspired sometimes by one of my favorite genius (Picasso)and made by a genius Cult (except my 'intervention' that has nothing of genius), this could not be something else but a masterpiece. Dark,scary AND cubed,what more can I ask for? Love it!!

Beautiful... a lush soundscape. Excellent job capturing cubist elements with the disfiguring and unsettled vocals. Production is top notch. Great great job.

Thanks Woody, but I only write like that in my dreams... and not even... These are Gertrude Stein's words, Mr Cult Harley picked them, I just 'talked'.

Brilliant, Lil & JH! Love the creative direction here. Suprising in every respect.

Love to hear you rip emotion out this, and then counterpoint with cold mechanical reading of the poetry. ******* fantastic. (Asterisks mine) smiley
