*2. ploddy noir. hopscotch w/searchlights. plaayful.
stabby ending. =it came out bad.
3.. okey, this sounds nice. much quieter. tinkly. rolling quality.
*4. softer, sweeter than before. this just holds you. loved.
old saloon sound comes in near end. ends on sweet.
5. sounds like music for a very serious episode of charlie brown.
reminds me of gershwin. kinda fun. makes me wanna have black coffee and curl up for the night.
6. i'm hearing chopin. a really dark chopin.
*7. 'see-i told you so!', it seems to say near the end.
it's a great, building end.
