It’s the rentrée, the new school term this month. Did you love it or hate it? I have written a lot of songs (most of them probably) that disobey the basic rules of musical theory, usually out of ignorance because my theory is pretty rudimentary. This song about another form of ignorance is an example but try as I might I couldn’t find a chord I liked better. It was inspired by a trip to Barcelona with my polyglot partner. At one point I went into a shop to buy stamps (yes, it was that long ago) and managed only to ask if they had a shop counter. They did (have a shop counter; they didn’t have stamps).
