New Words, Old Song

At Saturday's rehearsal with Bora and Gary I introduced a couple of new songs to them - "My Version Of You" which I posted about on Sunday, and "Permanent Distraction".

Permanent Distraction is both an old and a new song. It used to be called "It's Not Real", a song I wrote and recorded a while ago but was never completely happy with the vocal part. A few months ago I decided to just scrap the original words and wrote a whole new tune and lyric over the top of the original music.

Like "My Version Of You" this was the first time we'd all played this song together and the first time Gary had heard it. Once again, as you can see above, they did a pretty amazing job with it. And I'm much happier now with it as "Permanent Distraction".
