Going Down (Hard)
Next new song in the queue: a rewrite of "When You Go Down". I took a rough version to Dave and he made several great suggestions, steering me especially through melody lines and making them more interesting and not so obvious. He is also responsible for the nifty broken-pause delivery of the end of each line in the verse. I think there needs to be a transition between verses, maybe the intro (which I am hearing with Juke-type horns), but otherwise I b'lieve we are on our way.
Oh, and one last detail: I am changing the title to "When You FALL Down". The chorus was "when you go down, you go down HARD", which is just beggin' for mockery. I'm probably gonna have enough problems....
