Coming Out of Dry Dock
on: January 18, 2020, 10:45:05
I just grabbed this song from very deep in my catalog.........tracked many years ago and posted on my Soundclick page somewhat more recently.

This one is for @MrBouzouki .

Liking the Sea song you've got here.
I liked the line "The hand of a master shaped me in the shipyard".
Cool harmonica. What comes after the piano solo - is surprising.

Just listened to this @Leonard Scaper .... it would have been interesting to have some concertina on this perhaps.

I think I'm about to be refloated @Leonard Scaper ... the world is my oyster

@oorlab @MrBouzouki ...I'm glad you guys gave this a listen. I just put it up here after hearing that you may have been getting a bit of a re-fit, Mr B. Looking forward to your new tack.  ;)

I can't remember much about this recording as the actual recording pre-dates anything I do these days. I have just always liked the song and it is one of the few that I actually play live.

Hey @Leonard Scaper ... I see the sails rustling as a first breeze is felt.

It could be a 'Proggy one' with my old mate Dave Zeitlin (Dee Zee)

After hearing and reposting his instrumental  track 'Deep Blue' yesterday, it got me playing around with vocal melodies and ideas with a potential Sci-Fi / Climate Collapse story collaboration about how the last of the human race has ben forced by global warming to retreat under the sea, in bases using hydroponic farming and similar technologies, as the surface is too hostile to live on.

Anyway this is what I've got so far. I renamed it Deep and Blue because of the metre. It's a bit heavy, not in sound but in topic ;-)

Deep and Blue

Down we go, in the water
In the Deep, and Blue
Nothing left above us
The world, we knew, is through
Cities lost, beneath the waves,
On a rising tide of fear

First we lost the ice-caps
Then we lost, the bees
Then we had the food wars
As the people tried to flee
A lack of trust, as the world unwound
and the global climate changed

Then there were wars, terrible wars
No-one could win, as our castles caved in
The die had been cast, as we fought to the last
Almost no-one was saved, as we sank through the waves

So here we are, survivors
In the Deep and Blue
A pitiful existence
But what else could, we do
Like Atlantis lost, beneath the waves
As the world above us burns

Still WIP ... I think there is more to say yet

I think this is a fantastic thing that you are doing here @MrBouzouki . This may seem heavy, but these are things that need to be lit up and doing it through song is a very wholesome way to go.

I'd say you've got something very strong going now. If I were you I'd be getting ready to run up the mainsail because that breeze is definitely freshening even as we speak.
