It's that time of year again... time to choose a vocal solo for this year's auditions and contest. The world of music is impressively weird, and there are some incredibly odd solos out there. Last year's gems included one which proclaimed majestically, "Toasted susie is my ice cream!" This year, I could sing about a green dog. Or peas. How does someone get inspired to compose a song about peas?

I did find some normal songs eventually, and I decided on "Under the Willow Tree", by Samuel Barber. A very pretty piece, with a high note at the end! Yay.

>.> just looking back through your posts to try and figure out how in the world did I ever discover you were on LiveJournal.. and I just though I might remark that "Under the Willow Tree" is just as crazy as any song about a Green Dog.. if not more so. -_- does that song make any sense? I remember the judge at state said stuff about it.. but I was too busy sporting sun burns and wanting to return to my wonderful green hill to really listen to closely. My bad, eh?

It's not that crazy! It has a point, and a sort of 'plot'... And it's got a nice melody.

-_- yes.. a melody that gets stuck in your head for hours after just hearing it once... or maybe it was the fact that I have the general gist of the song so now it gets stuck after one hearing.
