Writing up arrangements of songs has really shown me which songs are strong enough to stand up even when stripped down to four strings and which are just resting on gimmicks and production. I think all bands should be forced to do ukulele versions of their songs as The Little Ones have done with Tangerine Visions. The electric version is packed with plenty of bleeps and riffs, but the song works just as well as a four chord ukulele version.
As ever when I have to write up the lyrics myself, they’re almost certainly wrong to a comical extent. Their eyes open wide at the sight of golden ewes? Each one murdered a pet with another? They can’t possibly be right.
