Best Year Yer

Post by NickSouthampton » Mon Jan 19, 2015 7:31 pm

One morning, every other item on the BBC Radio4 Today program seemed to be about "The Great Austerity", and I started writing a song about it. All rather grim and dour.

Over the following week or so as I was working on the song it seemed to change into something a lot more optimistic.No idea why but that's how it turned out.

So, "The Great Austerity", is now called, "The Best Year Yet". Hope you like it.

I've written a blog about how the song came together. I'm interested in other members "Warts and all" descriptions of how their songs developed.

Thanks, I enjoyed reading that. Odd thing is I much preferred your first version.

Thanks Nick. In a way so did I which is why I ended up releasing them both.

I'm demoing songs for my new project at the moment and find the same thing is happening.

What starts as one idea can spawn many off shots.
