Day 6: The Rockies may crumble

Happy Wednesday! Decided to sing a little Gershwin today. I will not lie to you, there are a lot of jazz standards I would love to do, but dang, those suckers are tough harmonically! I had to rule out a couple options because I kept somehow ending up in keys even more distant than were intended while singing a cappella.

While I was checking the words to this tune, the lyrics to the intro verse felt pretty relevant. Remember to be kind! All we've ever truly got is each other.



"The more I read the papers

The less I comprehend

The world and all its capers

And how it all will end

Nothing seems to be lasting

But that isn't our affair

We've got something permanent

I mean in the way we care"
