Across The Universe

I haven't updated this blog for a long time! I decided to repost one of the first songs that I ever recorded (2003!). This is a cover of the Beatles' Across The Universe. I tried to do this in the style of the Smashing Pumpkins. Given that I really just started to mess around with learning the guitar, it's amazing that I could actually put this together. Of all the songs I have done, this is my good friend Susan's favorite of mine. I like the song because of the chord progressions and the vague but extremely positive philosophical message that all will be well if you can just learn to surrender a bit of control sometimes....

My favorite verse:

Sounds of laughter shades of life
are ringing through my open ears
exciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe

Sadly, my website is still not fixed so the best bet is to go to my feed page where you can either listen to the song immediately or download it:
