The World Ain’t Round

Click: The World Ain’t Round

Earlier in this post it was You Just Can’t Hate The World, now we learn why—it isn’t even round! Apparently scientists have measured and a sphere it ain’t. This is the kind of news that prompts fast action from Michael Feldman. This lyric appeared in my inbox, I’m sure, scant seconds after this announcement was made. I toiled at fitting it to a piece of music and came up with an odd sequence of chords—a little lopsided, like the subject—and a tune that seems like it might be whistleable.  I never came up with a B section, so you get the same thing three times and then out. I’m not sure what stopped me from coming up with something, I’m sure it wasn’t laziness, more like a roadlock in my imagination. Whatever it was, it keeps it in the ‘minor’ category—we may even have to downgrade from planet to oddly shaped asteroid.
