We played an acoustic version of this song live some ten years ago but the middle section we had back then never really worked. Finally for this album I got the inspiration to come up with the 9/8 part that made the song complete. Ville and Janne invented a perfect big but spacious rhythm for the A/B sections leaving lots of room for the guitar to mess around.
Ville: Note that the A/B rhythm track is derived from the 9/8 part. Actually I think there were two totally different versions of the middle part in the acoustic arrangement, right?
There might have been two versions but I remember just the one attempting to be funky.
Anybody remember playing the rain stick on this one? It’s there just before the beginning of the 9/8 section. I might have stolen it from one of the WJWTRTW tracks during mixing but I’m not sure…
