Tuxedo and Evening Dress



Hamish Grimm: Tuxedo & Evening Dress

Liner Notes: 

I love writing little nonsense songs like this.


You and me
Row out to sea
In a hollow tree

We drop our lines
Into the wine-
Colored sea
And catch a bottle of the
Finest cabernet

And the sky turns pink
As we drink
Down the purple liquid
And give some to a penguin

Who invites us to a party
But he
Warns us it’s black tie only
So we

Sail back to shore
To get our
Tuxedo and best
Evening dress

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This tale suits the music perfectly. I like how you introduced a penguin who actually had that influence to make you, respectfully, row back and redress. I can see this all happening!

has a nice, ebbing lullaby feel. The about face at the end of the song is a nice change. I hope you guys made it to the party in the end.

Really pretty. There are lots of colours in the lyrics, and it makes it seem like a pink and purple song. Guitar sounds lovely too.

I don't know why the guitar seems so hypnotic to me. Perfectly played for the song. Great lyrics. Nice job!

I prefer the more abstract lyrics vs. literal story, etc. I get both, glad I do. The literal folks are very troublesome Smile I don't get how they become musicians of all things.

Anyway, I get it, it works! Smile
