Heavy Skies

This chord challenge was hard!!! I think I got in everything that was mentioned in the challenge – tucked away somewhere.
The choice of subject was whatever we wanted, so I looked out the window and it was very misty out there – so that is what I chose. And that was where the difficulties began. I intended to describe the mist rolling down the hill, swallowing trees and buildings etc. It went through several incarnations as I desperately tried to bludgeon it into shape. After a whole day of despair (with my mojo missing presumed dead) I woke up in the middle of last night with a change of direction – phew. So now it is a misty morning that feels like the end of the world. Its a bit too slow at the moment – so I think it will change a bit as I “bed it in” before singing it in public. Anyway – it feels good to get as far as being able to post it for the challenge,


  1. Well done, Kris, this meets the brief, I would say. You’ve certainly conjured up some haunting images there, I know what you mean about misty mornings, I was driving in fog the other day and it felt like other-worldly and spooky, but very atmospheeric. Cheers, Phil

  2. Very moody and atmospheric. You have a unique voice and there is something about it that reminds me of someone or something which I can’t put my finger on. The structure is very unsual which has grabbed my attention. My spider senses feel slightly Stevie Nicks’ in terms of genre but then again………….
    Very interesting-I am very curious about what else you have up your sleeve.

  3. For my taste, an excellent tune. Very sonic and visual. When I connect with a tune it will nearly always take me somewhere. In this case, I was transported to a smokey cabaret, where a surprisingly good singer with a great tune was laying it out for anyone that would listen. Great work all around!

  4. “Sleeping off the whisky” .. but still have the “last of the bottle” next to the bed, just in case. Probably still under the influence and enjoying the romantic (if somewhat dark) notions that an exaggerated and wandering perception brings. The gentle accompaniment and melody evoke delicious morning drowsiness. Gold star!
