The “Metropolitan” verses are finished. Took a stab at the bridge and it didn’t quite satisfy. Needs a more careful approach. Skipped the chorus initially but circled back to it. I have been trying to include more traditional, vocal choruses as of late and this one has one of those. Again, the lyrics, melody, and phrasing are all there. I just need to dial in the amount of pepper. “Metropolitan” is a more delicate song than I have done in the past and the vocals require the energy level to be just-so. Finding that sweet spot, especially as it shifts through the song, has been the particular challenge of this one. More next week.
