Title: Down Forever
Artist: Lazy Dynamite
Composer: James Justin

I was always a big fan of 'ditty' writing by McCartney. Very short songs that were melodically catchy and didn't drag on any longer than was necessary to have impact and leave you wanting more. McCartney was a master of this form of writing with songs like 'I Will', 'Her Majesty', 'Michelle', 'Your Mother Should Know', & 'When I'm 64'.

I also very much enjoyed the idea of writing three distinct sections in a song that didn't repeat. And all in under a minute. A 'Ditty'.

Lucy takes her first trip down to 'Strawberry Fields' ...
Nothing Is Real - And Nothing to get Hung about.

lyrics

DOWN FOREVER

The children playing on a dark cloudy day
The school bell ringing puts an end to their play
Across the school yard there's a man on display
The local doctor giving candy away

And school drags on in its infinite wisdom
While broken Angels are locked in their prison
And everyone knows that the teacher is posing
As practical questions are whimsically chosen

And Lucy is tripping on Tangerine Trees - going

Down Forever - Down Forever
She floats on emotion so effortlessly - going
Down Forever - Down Forever
She feels nobody knows what it means to be free
Then suddenly, she slips away ...
