Liner Notes: 

Continuing the electric-car-musical-from-the-point-of-view-of-the-cars song arc I am following this 5090. The idea for this has been bouncing around in my head for awhile. Reading the Stephen Sondheim books Finishing The Hat and Look I Made A Hat, according to Sondheim there is a huge emphasis on the opening and closing number and including multiple motifs and lyrical references to songs throughout. I wrote it as a candidate to fill the set/act closing slot as a type of reprise. So far I really like it. Although it is likely to get tweaked as I learn it and play it and if it really is going to be an opening or closing type number then there are more songs to be written from several of the references therein. The recording is just me and guitar on a single track, the way I am likely to perform it. I did double the track and offset the duplicate by a fraction of a second.

Love the guitar. Very unique in thought and production. Hate to be dense...but who are the 3? The car, you & what?

Nice one! yeah, it does have that vibe of being either the 'happy ending' or a 'beginning'.. I like the open-sounding music that really propels this along nicely... 'c'mon lets drive' !

(and yeah, i have a new song that works perhaps as an 'ending' song, actually two, a 'happy' one and a' more ambiguous one' Smile )
