about

I've been without musical inspiration for quite a while now, so I've started to investigate some different ways of making songs. My last post with Anne Cozean - "SHINY LOVE" - was written using some charting software that was recommended by one of my bandmates (iReal Pro - worth a look), and I have another mostly finished using the same process.

This one however is different again, and is based on a bass riff that I've been messing about with for a few weeks. It's my first song in a long time - maybe ever - recorded using only midi.

Lyrics .............. they are sparse, 4 lines in total, and inspired by my fourth read of Dylan's "Chronicles Volume 1".

It kind of works for me.

It Has To Be Arranged
©2015 Neil Porter

The wind could never blow you out of my head
The wind could never blow you out of my head
“It has to be arranged” she said
The wind could never blow you out of my head

The rain will never wash you out of my heart
The rain will never wash you out of my heart
“It has to be arranged” she said
The rain will never wash you out of my heart

Nothing’s gonna dig you out from under my skin
Nothing’s gonna dig you out from under my skin
“It has to be arranged” she said
Nothing’s gonna dig you out from under my skin
