Hi All,

This is called October Horse.

She’s looking for solace
She’s looking for sunshine
She’s out of seasons
She’s out of time
Winter runs its course
Like an old October horse

He’s only a pony
He’s only a Mustang
He’s a July moonbeam
He’s got his own gang
Summer runs its course
Like a slow October horse

I don’t have an answer
I don’t have an aim
I can’t tell what you need
I know it’s such a shame
Love runs its course
Like a cold October horse
Oh love runs its course
Like a cold October horse

Hello Bob
Very atmospheric song
Very good vocals to go with it

Had to look up October horse, turns out it's an animal sacrifice the ancient Romans carried out on October 15th. That aside, this song is your usual atmospheric piece with a terrific vocal. Can't go wrong there. Your usual excellent work.

Nicely calm song with melancholy that "runs its course". Beautiful arrangement, all instruments play their own roles perfectly. Emotional vocals once again.

Well done.

I'm always impressed with your lean writing, and your voice and sparse arrangements work so well.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Winter. Summer. Love. Cool write, Bob. The music fits the theme and the lyrics so well, a slow walk of an October horse. [Thanks a bunch to TuneMonger for the look-up.] Excellent vocal and a very pleasing band, simple and very effective.

Another awesome tune Bob. October Horse did not know the connection to the Roman sacrifice. Very interesting. Excellent vocal and lyric. Well done..

Hello Bob ...

In addition to your charismatically unique vocals and wonderful arrangements, what impresses me the most is how much you say with so few words. Also, the depth and full sound you get from rather minimalistic backing tracks is fabulous. What a great listen ...
