@elesimo[archived]: this song is a random collaboration[archived] between me and @coolparadiso[archived]. It took us a while to get the collaboration started because we were both waiting on each other — totally my fault! But because of that I had a nice arrangement that I had made using @zecoop[archived]'s drums, and a chord progression for the #made-up-genre challenge (https://fawm.org/forums/topic/11055/), with a basic C G Am F progression followed by more and more random chords. And because of the wait John had these amazing lyrics about one of my favorite cities that matched the song perfectly. 😀
@coolparadiso[archived]: yes this was the serendipitous track! If we had done it when we both should it couldn't have been like this! And we like it! Bonus we even have @zecoop[archived] on the drums! It was a real collab, went back and forward a couple of times adding little bits! Was really fun and easy to work with @elisimo
She always loved old Amsterdam With its grim and grubby streets Especially the cafe on the corner With its tatty old brown seats It was a place where she could feel sad Didn’t have to answer to anyone Her mind could go anywhere She could just let it run Old Amsterdam in the springtime Flowers everywhere You can catch a glimpse But only if you if you dare Old Amsterdam in the springtime Flowers everywhere You can catch a glimpse But only if you if you dare Not everyday was close to perfect Sometimes drizzle fell like chattering mice But for all the good things There always is a price But it always cleared her mind Just watching the world go by She cant solve all the world problems Even though she might try Old Amsterdam in the springtime Flowers everywhere You can catch a glimpse But only if you if you dare Old Amsterdam in the spring time Flowers everywhere You can catch a glimpse But only if you if you dare But she's coming back tomorrow!
