This song...this song, this song, THIS SONG. It was written for Mike and our fusion trio. It has some musical quirks to it, which are there on purpose. The idea was to track a song with a raw vibe on the jammy parts, but with a somewhat dorky head. A wormy head, if you will.

To emphasize the worminess, I had written a synth part a la Ohio Players. But without an ARP or Minimoog at hand, I worked on it through my DAW at home. While transferring parts, it caught a technical glitch and transposed the ENTIRE SONG up a whole step.

Ok, so back in the studio we tried it again, (by remixing the song) and imported the synth track (which was a WAV file, not MIDI). All was as it should be when I left to grab a sandwich. The engineer had the track up and everything was in the right key. When I came back, the synth track had dropped a whole step. After a futile hour of trying to transpose the synth track, we gave up. That's why there's no funky worm sound- only a crazy computer worm writhing around in the audio somewhere. Enjoy!
