Arrangement

Somebody To Love 

This piece began as what I took to be "a laid back elevator music version of Somebody to Love" the song written by Darby Slick, former bro-in-law of Grace Slick,  "first recorded by the 60's rock n roll band The Great Society" and Jefferson Airplane performed and recorded it later, and transformed it.  "Rolling Stone magazine ranked Jefferson Airplane's version No. 274 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time."(wikipedia)

 

Yet, I didn't finish my arrangement by the deadline (Taxi A&R), and then made it not so laid back. I added some sort of grating elements imo, the vocals have always seemed to me to be glass-shatteringly intense and riveting and the lyrics both captivating and baffling. So I  beefed up to my hearts delight:) You gotta do what you gotta do...
