Day 15. Emerald Green Rides Again?

Emerald Green was an experiment to see if one could change the feel of lyrics by altering the chords, rhythm and even top line melody – changing the whole musical sound bed completely. I got the idea after being very familiar with Simon and Garfunkel’s Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. and the heard Somewhere They Can’t Find Me and noticed they used the same lyrics for the verses but the songs were polar opposites.

It was an interesting experiment, but should I repeat it again?
