Infinite Sky sheet music (detail)

Infinity, here and now

by Nick Sullivan on Oct 15, 2014

We found a place for Eternity a few items back. Today we find time for Infinity, with a canny focus on the sky, which is both near to hand and about as infinite as things get. Significantly for Infinite Sky, today’s song, it is much bigger than we are.

This Kind Of World

Good Old Devil

by Nick Sullivan on Oct 1, 2014

Adherents of God, a god, tend to blame a lot of bad things on the Devil, a fallen angel. Meanwhile, the Devil, for all his legendary verbal skill, is at a serious debating disadvantage: he can only speak through the mouths of infidels — and who listens to them?

You've Been On My Mind sheet music (detail)

Exit, confounded

by Nick Sullivan on Sep 17, 2014

Today’s song is You’ve Been On My Mind, which lays bare the thoughts of an obsessive, confused, isolated, resentful man (though not Walt). Now, as he heads down the road and away from the life you shared, it seems that all he can think about is you.

Trojan parcels

by Nick Sullivan on Sep 3, 2014

The perpetual creative ferment of the Waltworks owes its continued vitality to a caffeine-driven organizational paradigm — to regular jolts of joe. Learn the secret behind Walt’s famous coffee, including valuable safety tips. And that’s just half the story!

Eternally yours, for now

by Nick Sullivan on Aug 20, 2014

The only thing that makes the Universe interesting is the diffusion of energy from places where it is concentrated to places where it is rarefied, but we are approaching that dreary unstoppable dénouement where all the energy just sits around. So what of Love?

I Think I'll Ride sheet music (detail)

Coping with relationship breakdown

by Nick Sullivan on Aug 6, 2014

Today’s song, I Think I’ll Ride, examines a relationship-management strategy that Walt calls Projectile Decommitment. To apply it, one partner leaves the other as abruptly and rapidly as though fired from a gun, goes to a place without problems, and never returns.

Re: Infinity, here and now

Mighty and Vast Congratulations! Reaching the finish line with the Songs Sung Sideways videos is a worthy achievement, it will seem a little strange not to have another come along in two weeks.

Nice to see the real piano, also shows that some songs stay folk even when played on the music machine. It is very folk of you to transform the lyrics to your own taste as well.

Re: Forgotten Dream

An interesting discussion on style and genre, it calls to mind a comment made by SJW during one of our recent listenings to Songs Sung Sideways, to wit – “This stuff would probably go over we
