Well, if the music does dry up at least there’s theatre :-).

I think this project will generate responses very true to their creators and this is a perfect example. Exceptionally well done, even for you my dear friend (and even if I was picturing Dr. Seuss illustrations when I first started reading it).

I also felt a certain Dr. Seuss vibe when reading this… :)

It’s the meter in the verse. :-) I kind of like the idea of a copyright themed Lorax type story. Or is it the “Butter Battle Book” ?

The meter, the playfulness in the rhyme… Yea a copyright Lorax story would work, or copyright Sneeches with “stars up thars.” If you don’t have a star, you can’t write music! :)

It would make a great video, you know…Dr. Suess illustrations for each line.

First I laughed out loud in a few places, then admired that/how you went all out professional on this, and by the end felt touched by the power of your message.

You continue to amaze …

I listen to this and I see late nights in the sitting room
Surrounded by stacks & stacks of records,
Vinyl, CD & mp3s on computers
Talking about “Remember when…?”
And asking “What if…”
What it is, what it was & what it shall be
About this business they call ‘music’
But more importantly;
About the music

Amen brother, this poem goes straight to the point. Now, the only problem is how the heck to remix it with music?

Oh I like this.

Yes, I rather like this a lot.

You clever sod, you.

Polite and harsh all at once. Stinging with a gentle humility.

You’re a gifted musician/composer and a poet. You do it all mate! Cheers!

Thanks LS. As a fellow UK dweller, you’ve summed up very well many of my thoughts on this abomination.

I think I’ll enjoy putting this to a hip hop beat, though looking at the remix list, lol, I’m sure someone also did a hip hop mix of it. Very Dr. Seuss-ish your delivery is, but it’s a good piece!
