A touching and powerful song, quite different from the sources they’re based on, but just as powerful.

As for the message, it is one I have dwelled on many times.

“I most solemnly tell you, as much as you did not do it for the least of these brothers and sisters, you did not do it for me.”

Thanks AB! I almost used your bass too but decided to keep it sparse and rely on snowflakes left hand and the bass drum. Thanks for the little acoustic cameo and getting the message. Cheers

i love this. the lyrics are so on-point, and paint a sobering picture. it is strangely beautiful to ‘accompany’ your melody and lyric…an honor really. and it is always a joy to be blended with the admiral.

very nice scomber!

Thankyou for sharing such touching music and source for us to reinterpret. Glad you liked it. I purposely tried to get your original melody out of my head for this! You are correct in saying it’s a wierd headspace

there is no reason in the world why this couldn’t sell several hundred thousand copies. but fuck it, you’d have all that paper work & accounting paranoia to fool with. the lyric ranks with your best & the integration of the great samples shows your post Scomber 365 skills at their best.

Great song, Scomber. You still remind me of Leon Russell.
