This is a fairly straightforward and possibly generic folk rock song with the exception that instead of refferencing A above middle C at 440 Hz it refferences it at 432.
This is by way of an experiment as 432 was standard in some locales ( promoted unsuccessfully by the Schiller Institute under the name Verdi tuning since Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi had proposed a slight lowering of the French tuning system. However, the Schiller Institute's recommended tuning of A is 432 Hz rather than the mathematically derived 430.54 Hz or French tunning) up to the early 20th century when it was changed as a universal standard to 440.
The result is either a very flat middle C ( -8 cents) or a slightly sharp Bb (+2 cents).
Just wondered how people would react to it in the 21st century smiley
It's an interesting subject and one I would encourage musicians to investigate.

Al- deaf is not good. Get well. When we talk again, you can explain what you've mentioned in the description. I've read it twice and barely understand but sounds like something that would drive someone with "perfect pitch", crazy.

@dalerandle It does that's why I did it while my hearing is so muted but it gives pause for thought ie perfect ptich is based on 440 while mathematicaly perfect pitch would be 430.54 and multiples thereoff so maybe I'm actually tone deaf smiley

I never though about frequencies ..Horowitz the great pianist fooled his pianotuner because one day he wanted 442Hz next 438 aso..so maybe its got something to do with the atmosphere of the location and the temperature...the song is a real good song with its lyrics..I liked the listen - although I´m not hearing the tone of a bat which I could when I was young ..so I hope your ears may recover to a bearable level..

cheers
