Story of the Song – Miss Dalton's Dream

There's a old story of John Lennon wanting some kind of sound for I Am The Walrus, and saying something along the lines of, "Bring me the sound of a thousand chanting Tibetan monks!". Chanting, "stick it up your jumper". Deep.

(You're at this site and you really need a full refresher on that amazin slice of yellow mellow custard? Hm.)

There's Beck, mixing it up with his breakthrough LP Mellow Gold.

The actual egg of the song breaks open from the chord changes here, and the lyrics jump off of the visuals. Or at least, my response to them.

Finally there's me, enjoying the layers of the acoustic guitar orchestra, zoning out on a D chord.

Available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and at www.treyroque.com.
