I’m a Fan Friday: Twenty-One for 2021 – #7

Burlington-Bristol Bridge – October 2020

Say whatever you want about celebrity culture, etc, etc…

I honestly think these folks had the best of intentions and actually inspired many people when they released a rendition of John Lennon’s song, “Imagine.”

I think that’s terrific, I really do.

On the original video on YouTube, everyone sings a quick phrase without any instrumental accompaniment and the snidbits are edited together. The problem is, no one thought to decide on a key.

That’s important.

You could listen to that version, but why would you ever do that when you have Charles Cornell’s fantastic work?

In the video immediately below, Charles brilliantly bridges together these lonely, musical island intentions with the most essential (though apparently so casually overlooked) element of song – musical structure.

It’s a perfect metaphor when considering intentions. What holds them together? Are they coherent?

Imagine what harmony is really like.



(BONUS! Below is the “making of” video for the above)
