A quick late-night post from the Archives for a track that I still feel manages to evoke the essence of wistful longing better than anything else I’ve written before or since.
Year Composed: 1990
About the Song
This wistful little piano piece was actually written specifically to fill the remaining space on a cassette tape. It also served as a nice way to wrap up my Encore! compilation, which consisted of remixes, early original vocal tracks, and other odds and ends that never seemed to quite fit anywhere else. I remember running through it once or twice before recording, just to make sure that I knew what was supposed to happen when, and then keeping my fingers crossed that there would be enough tape left to make it through the entire thing without having to make any edits or change the tempo!
