Melancholy Man

Leave a comment


A re-imagined “Melancholy Man.” For those not born in the rotary dial telephone age, this was a song penned by keyboardist Mike Pinder of the Moody Blues. Pinder was (as is) a whiz on the mellotron, an early kind of synth which isn’t easy to play. I’ve always liked this song (the original is on YouTube). It’s sad, but also cosmic. (This version is identical to the one posted about two weeks ago, except that I added a sound effect at the top, beefed up the rhythm fills and smoothed out the fade).

A beam of light will fill your head
And you’ll remember what’s been said
By all the good men this world’s ever known…
(and) we’re going to keep growing… wait and see
