I've always loved the songs of Burt Bacharach & Hal David (esp. early Dionne Warwick: "Don't Make Me Over" and "Walk On By" both still kill me.) This one is sort of a mirror image to the Carpenters' "Close To You" (lyrically more along the lines of "Far From Me", really); we just started recording a studio version of it a week ago or so, and look forward to finishing it in plenty of time for the apocalypse.

By the way, this gig, Modern Maturity's Boston-area debut, was big-time fun- hope to do more soon...
