Thanks for the copy of the Langley Music Project. I have to tell
while I thought the whole CD was really neat, their version of
"In My Room"
was particularly powerful. The combination of the lyrics and
innocent voices juxtaposed against all the craziness of the past
for a very powerful statement. It's unnerving, yet at the same
comforting. The rawness of the recording only makes it more powerful
childlike. There aren1t too many songs that come around that
get me stirred
up. This is one of them.
It's funny how lyrics can take on different meanings at different
suspect that when Brian Wilson penned this tune, and again when
kids recorded it 25 years ago, none could have imagined the meaning
on today. Speaking only for my neighborhood, there are a lot
of moms out
there who are terribly concerned about how these recent events
will) effect their kids.
At any rate,
I don't know if you have any plans to release a single, but I
would encourage you to push "In My Room"...and, to
that end, we are
programming it on HitDisc and posting it on our downloads page
<http://www.tmcentury.com/> under the Patriotic Songs section.
