January 09, 2023  -  User Showcase Song - Apples and Bells

Happy New Year to all my PG Music friends and collaborators!

This is an experimental song (truth be told, everything I compose is experimental and a work in progress). So comments are welcome.

Apples and Bells

Based on helpful comments on past songs I've tried to deliver a bit more "melody" especially in the verses.

This song began its life as Apples and Apples, as in a man and woman very compatible with each other. But then when searching for a voice for the intro I stumbled upon a bells/glass voice that seems to work; hence Apples and Bells.
