So when i was a kid (1976- i was 8), my mom had an album of Alan Parsons Project and the name of the album was Project Tales of Mystery and Imagination Edgar Allan Poe. The album was so cool because it was like a book and it had pictures with the lyrics. Truth is by hearing EAP's poems put to music, i became a young fan of Poe and remain a huge fan of his work today.
Some of the songs were instrumental and were long songs like 16 bminutes long on the B side of the album. One of the songs made it to radio and got lots of air time.
that song was (The System of) Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether
Here it is
My favorite is The Raven . I love the tempo being slow and then fast and then slow. How cool is it to sing the chorus Nevermore Nevermore Nevermore Never!!
Here it is :
I will share with yall a few more songs later but i gotta run for now. Are any of you familiar with this album and the songs? What did you think about them? I was a weird kid what can i say! My parents were hippies.
A week from today i will be heading to South Dakota and into cooler weather. Yippee! Have a great day my friends.
